SDCC: Warner Bros and Fox Butthurt By Comic Con Trailer Leaks, May Take Balls and Go Home

And the Eisner for most smarmy, self-righteous article of the year goes to Deadline!

In an incredibly preachy article, even for the internet, Deadline reports that Fox and Warner Bros were upset by leaked fan recordings of their Deadpool and Suicide Squad movie footage unveiled at San Diego Comic Con this weekend. According to the report, which smugly calls fans who recorded the video on their cellphones "copyright thieving weasels," the studios were upset that the footage leaked online because they weren't prepared to release it to the world and they forgot they were living in the year 2015.

Deadline then goes on to tell a hypothetical sob story about director Quentin Tarantino, who previously threw a temper tantrum when the script to his upcoming movie Hateful Eight leaked, threatening not to make the movie at all, before later changing his mind. What if Hateful Eight, which Tarantino revealed 10 minutes of at Comic Con, had been leaked onto the web, asks Deadline? What would the director do then? After he was done crying and wiping his tears with million dollar bills, presumably. Why, he might never grace fans with exclusive Comic Con footage again! And then frivolously use the n-word 1000 more times in his next movie!

The moral of the story, according to Deadline, is that you are all naughty boys and girls for watching those videos, which you don't have the privilege of seeing because you weren't at Comic Con, and you should all be ashamed of yourselves for making super-rich global corporations feel embarrassed about poor quality cell phone recordings of their trailers being viewed on YouTube before they were ready to release the official versions. Now, says Deadline, those studios might decide not to show the footage at Comic Con at all in the future, and all of you ruined it, you filthy, pirated footage watching ne'er-do-wells!

For shame, people with cell phones! For shame, people who watch YouTube! For shame, people who were excited about an upcoming movie and wanted to share that enthusiasm with like-minded individuals who weren't fortunate enough to obtain an expensive ticket and travel package to San Diego Comic Con! For shame, everyone who isn't as morally superior as that self-righteous dickbag Mike Fleming Jr. at Deadline! For shame!
