Perhaps you’ve heard of a little movie called Suicide Squad. Perhaps you’ve heard of it due to the fact that it’s making a record-breaking amount of money. Or perhaps you’ve heard of it because a lot of people really don’t seem to like it one bit. Maybe you even know about it due to its director screaming obscenities aimed at Marvel. Regardless of how it is you know about the movie, it’s likely that you do. You’ve probably even got an opinion of it of some sort. Most people do at this point. Most people, that is, except for Jeph Loeb, the head of Marvel’s TV department.
Recently, The Hollywood Reporter spoke with Loeb about the film and whether or not his team was taking notes in regard to what the film did wrong. Loeb was exceptionally diplomatic in his response.
“No. It’s funny, we actually get asked that a lot,” he said, “The truth is, they do what they do and we do what we do. I tend to sort of think about it like I’m not sure that people that make medical shows look at other medical shows and go, ‘Why is my medical show better than this?'”
