Or cos made a Marvel movie that grossed over a billion dollars
IMDB just hasn't been the same since they deleted the social media elements and comments section.
I cringe when 30-something man-child YouTube reviewers tell Millennials of Shane Black's previous work, even I have no interest in watching as a 80s/90s kid, but forget the elephant in the room.
IRON MAN 3
Director- Shane Black
Budget- $200 Million
Box Office- $1.215 billion
Critical response- 80% Rotten Tomatoes, 7.2/10 IMDB
17th Highest Grossing movie of all-time.
You do realize that movie would have made tons of cash no matter who directed it right?
And I didn't know directing the money-in-the-bank "Iron Man 3", the sequel starring the most popular star in the mcu Robert Downey Jr., the one film that directly followed only the hottest Marvel event film yet, the first "Avengers", the the one that most mcu fans (like myself) considered a misstep, I didn't know directing that movie made Shane the right fit for "The Predator"! It might prove he's the right fit for another Marvel film, but Predator? And to co-write it too?
It's probably why I didn't know the director of the wonderful James Bond film "Casino Royale", Martin Campbell, made him the right fit for "Green Lantern" either! Oh.. wait.
Look I had fun watching "The Predator", will buy it on blu-ray too, but it's not the great film the franchise needed unfortunately. And that falls mostly on Shane.
