: : Then Burton says he doesn't read comics, which is a lie…
: Who says? He didn't say he's never read a comic book.
: I think fanboys put way too much credence to this assumption, which seems based on little-to-no evidence to me.
I'm a fanboy then? Well...I guess. Whatever.
"Little-to-no evidence", though?
Look at his work! The noir, fantasy, and horror seem to be derived and inspired from various comic works. I'm sure he read them growing up. His work shows this.
: : … and that he'd never read anything by Kevin Smith, which is also, more likely than not, a lie.
: Again, that's not what he said. He said he WOULDN'T read something by Kevin.
Yes...said this AFTER reading the blown-out-of-proportion comments by Kevin in the Post article. "Well, I'm contemplating legal action."
When reading that, it seems serious. Yet, we're not seeing the half grin on Kevin's face, and the little swing of his fist. Body language and tone tells more than words, sometimes...yet, in a paper and on the internet, words are ALL we get...so we can't be sure if they're tongue-in-cheek or if they're serious.
: : And Kevin's like "...which explains BATMAN." and it was pretty funny. He's not worrying about it anymore. Others are pulling this all out of him. And he's a sport, I guess.
: Yeah, I think it was a pretty light, seemingly off-the-cuff, little joke. No big deal.
Without a doubt.
