Entitled fans just don’t understand what it means to miss out on exclusive material.
I didn’t make it to last weekend’s San Diego Comic-Con International, but you don’t hear me complaining. So I missed out on seeing the raw footage from “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” revealed by director Zack Snyder — dem’s the breaks, as it’s said.
Some day, I’d love to get my geek on at Comic-Con. But the reality is from a financial and logistical viewpoint, that cross-country trip likely will never happen.
But there are many fans who are demanding DC Entertainment release the exclusive Comic-Con footage online.
Here’s what I have to say to those people with a misguided sense of entitlement: Too bad. Oh so sad. … And another thing — grow up.
Batman-on-film.com (BOF — only the best daggone Batman-related website ever!) webmaster Bill “Jett” Ramey was one of the lucky fans who was there to see the footage (that was less than a minute long). He also saw the big reveal of actress of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, heard Snyder talk shop and witnessed the brief appearances by Gadot, Ben Affleck (Batman/Bruce Wayne) and Henry Cavill (Superman/Clark Kent), who came to San Diego with Snyder straight from the Detroit set.
Ramey, who considers the entire presentation “very cool,” has a down-to-earth perspective.
“In my opinion, the film’s studio, director, and cast went above and beyond the call of duty and did something really nice for the fans in attendance. Additionally, fans (who) were not there to see this footage that was exclusive to SDCC ’14 also benefited via the many reports from fans and members of the press who (were) fortunate enough to witness it,” Ramey wrote in a BOF opinion piece he posted Wednesday.
