Especially with Elektra, because I'm doing a lot of the covers for the new version of Elektra.

So, when the special effects are at the service of the story and draw you into it, that is really the magic.


There is a whole generation of people who are going to see movies or watch TV who don't want to work.


It's interesting, because in the corporate stuff there's a dichotomy there, depending on the creator. Even what, in essence, may be a very safe corporate approach, there is some stuff that is allowed to be pushed.
