You’d think that everyone would be excited for Daredevil and Batman V Superman, but it seems not…
Legendary comic writer Frank Miller is giving both movie and TV series a pass because of his involvement with both characters, he told THR: “I didn’t make up Batman, I didn’t make up Daredevil, I have no right to be possessive, but once I’ve worked on a character, it’s hard to see any other way than my way. By and large, most of what they do, I’ll just get grouchy if I see it. So I tend not to look at it, except for few exceptions.”
Many people are saying that Miller is being snobby, but we don’t think it’s that a t all; in fact, we can totally see why Miller is saying what he’s saying. Interestingly though, he DID create Elektra: “I don’t know if they quite know I exist. Let’s see if they credit me for creating Elektra.”
Defending his outlook, Miller adds: “I’m not running for president. I don’t want to be one of those cranky old guys grinding an ax, wishing I got paid better. I’ve done my best to pave the way for artists in the future to be treated better than I have. And that’s all I can do. Beyond that, I’d be pissing and moaning about things I have no control over. I’ve signed every contract that I’ve signed and agreed to the working conditions that I’ve worked in. And I’m not going to whine about this. I make a good living.”
Miller left a big mark on Batman and Daredevil’s mythology and we love him for it and we applaud his attitude here.
