Mark Miller, the man in charge of Fox’s new X-Men movies, posted some stuff on his forum and ComicBookMovie broke it down… I’ve suddenly become very afraid and very confused….

1) He calls the The Wolverine amazing, akin to something David Lean would have made… David Lean, the man who gave us Lawrence of Arabia and Dr Zhivago… really? Miller is comparing a superhero movie with ninja’s to Lawrence of Arabia? … How?

2) First Class and Wolverine are ‘year one’ as far as he’s concerned… so why in the world is he letting Singer piecemeal and shoehorn Days of Future Past with the older movies? or is this truly going to be a reboot/retcon moment in DOFP?

3) He calls The Amazing Spider-Man a ‘misfire’, not bad, just a step backwards because it retold the origin again (which yeah, okay, they didn’t really need to retell the origin) but way to smack mouth Marvel Entertainment and Sony. That’s just bad form, not to mention tacky.

4) Then he praises Dark Knight Rises as one of the best films of 2012 while simultaneously insulting it, not just pointing out any niggly issues, outright insulting the movie and Nolan.

“It has it’s problems, especially Nolan’s reluctance to make Batman himself  especially interesting, and the pay off with Bane SO anticlimactic after such a  brilliant build up.”

5) His best film of 2012? The Grey aka Liam Nesson Punching Wolves… out of ALL the movies that came out in 2012…
