And you already know, individuals neglect actually rapidly, however when the primary film got here out, that they had the identical drawback. Folks had been upset with the best way these heroes appeared. So we knew getting into that we’d all the time have that wrestle.
The main focus for us was extra on our authentic storyline, and the way will we guarantee that we keep true to that DNA of the characters within the comics and produce this story to life.
