Elsewhere, Mark Millar stood up for something he believes in — the work of David Slade — and he thinks “Eclipse” looks dandy. Find out why after the jump, where you’ll also see Warren Ellis’ wish for the World Cup, Gail Simone’s “Toy Story 7” prediction and a question about Mel Gibson.
I’m @brianwarmoth, and this is your Twitter Report for July 2, 2010.
@mrmarkmillar I don’t care who hears me. #Eclipse looks great and @davidslade rocks. Hard Candy and 30 Days both treasured by this Scot.
-Mark Millar, Writer (“Wanted,” “Kick-Ass”)
@warrenellis I so want that Japanese referee to be Yakuza. He could lop off players’ little fingers instead of giving a yellow card.
-Warren Ellis, Writer (“Planetary,” “Transmetropolitan”)
Andrew Garfield pt. 1: @skottieyoung I have to say, Andrew Garfield looks exactly like what I think of as Peter Parker. I’m excited to see what he does.
-Skottie Young, Artist (“New X-Men,” “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz”)
Andrew Garfield pt. 2: @ChrisSamnee Super nerdy question: What artist’s interpretation of Peter Parker do you think Andrew Garfield, our new movie Spidey, resembles most?
-Chris Samnee, Artist (“Siege: Embedded,” “Area 10”)
Andrew Garfield pt. 3: @philhester @ChrisSamnee Romita Sr. Just a bit too good looking. Not as plausibly nerdy as Maguire.
-Phil Hester, Writer/Artist (“Green Arrow,” “The Irredeemable Ant-Man”)
@Ravengregory Internet: Please, for one minute, stop talking about sucky Peter Parker actor, sucky airbender, and sucky wonderwoman costume. That is all
-Raven Gregory, Writer (“Tales from Wonderland,” “The Gift”)
@OKBJGM having coffee with one of the writers of farscape…the budong will be a topic of discussion.
-Javier Grillo-Marxuach, Writer (“Annihilation: Super-Skrull,” “The Middleman”)
@kenby Mel Gibson’s freak outs disturb me a lot less than actual journalists repeatedly using the term “baby mama”.
-Corey Lewis, Writer/Artist (“Sharknife,” “Seedless”)
Parting Wisdom for the Day:
@GailSimone Toy Story 7, Andy’s bitter divorce as seen through they eyes of his toys. “Hope he plays with us,” says Woody. “Hope he doesn’t,” says Rex.
-Gail Simone, Writer (“Birds of Prey,” “Wonder Woman”)
