“Most of the great graphic novels are gone, and ‘Youngblood‘ is one of the few comic books left with tentpole potential,” Ratner said.
This from a CBR story that Youngblood has been acquired for Brett Ratner to direct for mid-six figures.
I can’t even begin to take apart Ratner’s statement because it’s so ridiculous. Also, anyone that knows ANYTHING about comics and graphic novels can tell you he doesn’t know a god damn thing about comics based on this sentence. Which kind of explains the whole X3 nightmare.
I guess the silver lining in all of this is that Youngblood sucks pretty hard already and Ratner sucks the biggest amount possible, so they’re kind of a match made in heaven. Since Ratner’s goal in life seems to be going around ruining awesome stuff (again – the X Franchise, among other things) then I’d rather he’s kept busy on something that kind of sucks to begin with. As Adam put it when he brought my attention to this article – “a perfect storm of suck”. Well said Adam, well said.
