(Source: blackbookmag.com) Early ‘Wolfman’ Reviews Don’t Bode Well for ‘Captain America’ Marvel’s upcoming Captain America movie is currently casting, but we’re still trying to figure out what the they were thinking by entrusting their last wide-appeal franchise to a director like Joe Johnston. He’s a hack, albeit one who usually gets the benefit of a big budget. His movies—The Rocketeer, Jurassic Park III, Hidalgo—are all spectacle, no spirit. So when Johnston took over The Wolfman from Mark Romanek (director of One Hour Photo and a genuine artist with authentically dark sensibilities ), we hoped against hope that Johnston would be able make that movie into the Gothic terror it was meant to be, and not a soulless CGI showcase. Well guess what, he didn’t, and Wolfman’s shabby reviews should have Marvel shitting in their spandex.

So some in the biz perked up when the Huffington Post ran a blog item highlighting the plight of visual effects artists.

Political blogger Lee Stranahan, a one-time vfx artist and motion graphics artist for “Access Hollywood,” wrote an open letter to James Cameron asking him to speak out for “Fairness for Visual Effects Artists.”
