    He has a habit of talking for a long time without really saying anything.

      I didn't know that he also wrote the script for Wolverine until this video. This explains a lot actually.

        The fact that they can't acknowledge the fan disappointment shows they never had real talent for writing. They depended on another person and thought the blame would fall there.

            Fact : The fans are always right because they know the universe of a book more than the directors and producers of Hollywood. If they think you failed... you failed. Deal with it.

              He is right about the Spiderman part. It made sense in the 1960 "world of tomorrow" that Peter Parker could invent his own web shooters. But in the 21st century it makes no sense that a highschool student could invent something the US military is spending billions to try and develop

                  as long as these idiots have intelligent brains to write the story we are good , but they are incapable of doing this when they ran out of script for G.O.T, i would hate to see them starting again to takeover another adaptation that i loved, each time i followed their work, i knew the resolution would be terrible ( Lost ending ...)

                              Did this idiot really just compare Origins Wolverine to Spider-Man? Difference is that Spider-Man was good. NOBODY like wolverine origins one of the worst superhero movies ever.

                                            They were really proud they got a reaction out of the New York times for that "rape" scene. I guess it kinda tells you why it got thrown in there. Not because it moved the story forward, but they got their name in and papers...

                                                  His eye roll on the question about the rape scene is SO unlikeable. YIKES.

                                                  Edit: Especially because he probably thinks about tHoSe StUpId SjW bItChEs BeInG uPsEt. Fuck him. She asked him a question and his answer was *Uhh we "thought" he would do that and we write that with no regards for anyone*
                                                  He literally thinks he is so much above everyone else that he doesn't have to explain himself.
                                                  I know the comparison is ridiculous, but George R R Martin is SO MUCH MORE sincere with his answers, and so much more likeable. Just mentioning it because YT keeps recommending GRRM answering fan questions to me, and most of the time I can't pass, so watching this was J̷̧̲͔͓̰̩̙̙̜̰̽̑̚͝A̷̗͙̰̹̯͌͊̑̔͠͝Ṙ̴̢̧̘̭̱͍̜͍̰̬̓͠R̵̨̛̩̠̰̪͎͖̓̑̄͌̈́͑͠I̸̡̪̮̟͕̞̭̎̈́̑͘N̵̞͖̠͖̮̫̳̙͓͓͌͒͛̋̔͘̕͠G̶̣̥̱͛̏̇̐̏.

                                                            He did not write X-Men. He wrote the original treatment for it, but it was completely changed by Skip Woods he wrote the Hitman movies and the worst Die Hard movie). Benioffs original idea was to make a movie, which has many similarities to what Logan eventually became. This Dragon Demands dude is a fraud. This video exposed him.

They still had to write the outlines and scripts for each season in 4 months. The outline for S8 was 140 pages long. The scripts for each episode were definitely over 100 pages long on average.

                                                                Now for the X-Men movie. No it was NOT written by Benioff. Benioff wanted to do an R-rated movie with many similarities to Logan. Fox said "no" and hired David Ayer to completely rewrite his script. David Ayer was later replaced by Skip Woods to write the script. The "deadpool" in the movie was caused by the Fox executives. They kept rejecting ideas laid out by the writers that replaced Benioff because they didbt think it was "cool" enough. Later, "deadpool" was born. The writers who replaced Benioff were not happy with the end result. Benioff had nothing to do with the finished product.

                                                                Below is an interview with Benioff in 2007. If you scroll down you will find a question about X-Men. There he says that he was replaced, and that he hasnt worked on the movie in a long time. According to the wikipedia page for the movie, Benioff was finished with his original draft in 2006, and after that he had nothing to do with the project.


                                                                Below is more information about how the Fox executives fucked up.

Dumb and dumber even mentioned in behind the scenes footage that they knew Arya was going to kill the Night King over 3 years ago.

                                                                    On a subconscious level we pick up on his microexpressions, that he's constantly trying to use glib charm to win us over with his facial expressions and tone, even when he isn't saying anything of substance. His father crippled his teeth....well, didn't buy him braces despite being a multi-millionaire.....so he doesn't have an "easy going smile" or anything. Instead he uses other expressions associated with smiling: I call it "the sympathy eyebrows". He's constantly arching up his eyebrows in this coy, innocently friendly look....and he can turn it on and off like a god-damned light switch. Once it's pointed out to you, you can't unsee it. But he's a weasel all around, yeah. The weird thing is, he has a LOT of nervous ticks, but somehow his tone managed to overcome them - he pervasively plays nervously with his fingers or hides his crooked teeth behind his hand. Obviously interviews want him to look nice, so any interview big enough to be professionally edited tries to remove these wide shots but....the more amateur video ones, in wideshot, you get a sense of how jittery he really is.

                                                                    That's also what he's doing when talking btw. Just filling the air with *w o r d s s s s s*
