I assume he’s half-kidding, because of all the blockbusters he mentions, none needed an ending rewrite as badly as Ang Lee’s Hulk, the Roger Corman Fantastic Four, the David Hasselhoff Nick Fury (SPOILER: he quits smoking!) or the Matt Salinger Captain America, all of which Lee obligingly shilled for at the time as the perfect versions of their respective lead characters.
But what the hell – dude’s a snake-oil salesman sometimes, but he’s still funny when he spins a yarn. So here he is with some animated embellishment.
Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
