Just because you don't think they are good comics/films, doesn't mean they aren't.
You are as entitled to your opinion as those of us who differ.<

Yeah, Michael Bay is a good anal-log for Geoff Johns.

A Guardians/Deadpool movie crossover? I would be all for that, though it will likely never happen.

Saw Solo today.

Didn't suck. Liked it better when it was the Firefly episode Train Job.

Alternate reply: "Your taste is shit and you should be ashamed." Not only is it RCT canon, it would have fit.

I'd rather read a spiteful and bitter Mark Waid instead of a submissive and likable (and ultimately incompetent) Geoff Johns any day of the week. 'Kingdom Come' is very superior to anything Johns has written in his entire career.

I wouldn't say Ron Howard is one of Hollywood's best directors, but he is no hack.
He has done good films, a hack can't do good films.

Waid also is no hack. I know there are really bad, really weak Mark Waid comics around, but there are also really good ones.
Personally, I have no idea why the quality of his work varies so much, but he is not a hack in the regular sense,

Howard made the movie that won Akiva Goldsman an Oscar, so I'm not going to pretend he doesn't have some sins to answer for, but he has an overall pretty high batting average when it comes to making enjoyable films that often have something to say. Sure he's no auteur, but he'll, neither is Spielberg, plus he gave us Arrested Development and is the goddamn narrator! He gets a lifetime pass for that alone.
