Marvel E-I-C Axel Alonso Talks More About The Relationship Between The Comics And Movies
A few recent changes as a result of "Marvel NOW!" have led to comic book fans wondering exactly how much of a role the movies are playing in the direction that fan favourite characters like The Avengers and The Winter Soldier are being taken in. Hit the jump for Axel Alonso's take on the subject.
Just how much of a role Marvel Studios has in the creative direction of Marvel Comics is a big topic of debate among fans. Well, one of them put the following scenario to Marvel E-i-C Axel Alonso; what if the big screen version of Doctor Strange is portrayed as "a teenager with heavy eyeliner and a lot of tattoos, and it makes money"? Is that how the comic book character will suddenly be portrayed? "That is definitely not how we do it," he emphasised. "If Marvel NOW! proved one thing, it’s that we put premium stock in our writers. "Avengers" reflects the vision of Jonathan Hickman, not Marvel Studios. And the same is true down the line."
Another fan was curious as to whether Black Widow's role in Marvel's The Avengers and the upcoming Captain America: The Winter Soldier led to the relationship between her and The Winter Soldier being ended recently. "Bringing that relationship to a close was completely Ed Brubaker’s decision as he wrapped up his run on the series." Despite these comments, there's no getting around the fact that the movies have had a notable impact on the comic books (the introduction of Nick Fury Jr. and Agent Coulson for example). What do you guys think? Be sure to sound off with your thoughts in the usual place!
