Movie Review: Drive (2011)

Ryan Gosling in Drive

Marvel's Chief Creative Office Joe Quesada, says it best. "Back in the day, so many of us in the creative community would sit back and watch someone produce a TV show or a movie based on a comic book and see it flop miserably because those people didn't understand what made those characters work. We'd sit there going, 'Why didn't they hire comic book people?'" In 2011, that's exactly what Marvel plans on doing [1]. Read more after the jump. In an interview with Comic Book Resources [2], the former Editor-in-Chief, now Chief Creative Officer, was asked now that he doesn't have to worry about the publishing arm of Marvel, what his plans are for 2011.
