Earlier today Bob Iger, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of The Walt Disney Company, offered more comments on the simmering pot of delicious Italian beef that’s defined 2019.
Iger is quoted as having said, “If Marty Scorsese wants to be in the business of taking artistic risk, all power to him. It doesn’t mean that what we’re doing isn’t art.”
Bob, we actually disagree. Disney is the only studio brave enough to take the artistic risk needed to ask “what if a man could be really small?” or “can we make teenagers accept genocide as pretty reasonable if the guy who does the genocide is purple?” You should all be proud, but we digress.
Time also reported that Iger revealed “his people” and Scorsese’s team are “arranging a get-together.”
True Superhero Fans Only has obtained an exclusive video of Marty Scorsese getting ready to go meet with Iger, as well as the actual meeting itself which occurred shortly after the announcement.
