TR Contest: Things Overheard in the Warner Bros. DC Movie Department


I’ve had a bit of fun with the section of Warner Bros. that runs the movie based on DC comic properties, mainly because they are mouth-breathing morons who couldn’t couldn’t be trusted to wipe their own asses if the mountains of cocaine they do on a daily basis didn’t render it unnecssary to eat solid foods… metaphorically speaking. I mean, we only hear about some of the insane stuff they do — giving up making DC movies until 2015, turning down Joss Whedon’s Wonder Woman, hell, asking Ben Affleck to direct Justice League was technically the best idea they’ve had in forever. But what don’t we hear about? Which of their brilliant ideas hasn’t gotten past the “planning” stage? Have they even heard of anybody other than Batman and Superman?  Do they even know how to work their computer? I’d love to be a fly on the wall in that office,.

I can’t, but here’s the next best thing: You tell me thing overheard in the WB DC movie department. It can be general stupidity, horrible ideas about their movies, confusion over DC’s properties, bafflement that Marvel succeeds where they constantly fail, whatever. If it’s said by a coke-addled movie executive with less than four functional synapses in the WB/DC office, it counts. Bonus points will be given both for cruelty and a certain amount of subtlety.
Three entries per person; entries can contain more than one sentence, but try to keep them pretty trim overall (most movie executives can’t process thoughts of more than 150 words, I’m sure). The contest ends at 12:01 am EST on Monday, August the 13th. All right, I’m outta here; you guys have a great weekend, and I’ll see you on Monday.
