"The hardcore fans — the fanboys, the comic-book geeks — they’re the reason these movies get made. They’re the ones that see it two, three, four times. If we didn’t have that loyal fanbase, I’d be unemployed. So you have to make sure they’re happy, but the way you try and do that is to become a fan. You have to read as many comic books as you can and see the character through their eyes and try to understand what they expect. So you certainly keep them in your head. But like I said, going online and checking … everyone’s going to have a different opinion. There’s always going to be someone who doesn’t like something, so you can’t use that as your litmus test. You just have to respect what their expectations are."
