    'Guardians of the Galaxy' Character Creators Fight for Cash and Credit - NYTimes

    Mr. Giffen, however, was pessimistic that Mr. Kirby’s heirs and allies would prevail.

    “The Supreme Court is going to rule for a bunch of scruffy artists and freelance writers over a multinational, multibillion-dollar corporation?” he said. “Are you out of your mind?”
    An interesting read, even though the headline is misleading. No one is actually "fighting".

    “My doing all this is not because of some belief that I will be able to change things,” he said. “I know I can’t. But I set out to make the story more well known, so that there is a well of public support, which does have an effect. That can sway people.”

    Michael Mantlo, at least, can affirm that such homegrown measures have worked for his brother. Any film proceeds and further donations that “Guardians of the Galaxy” helps generate for Bill, he said, “will hopefully set up his future forever.”

    Mr. Giffen, however, has taken away a different lesson from his experiences.

    “It’s like the advice I give my granddaughter,” he said. “If you can help it, don’t be a creator. Be the exploiter. They get rich. You never will.”

    Nicole Perlman Q&A: How 'Guardians of the Galaxy' Went From a Writers Program Project to Record-Breaking Film - Script Magazine

    Well, it was funny. I think in a sense because it was such a long shot that this would be the project that got chosen out of the writers program to be made, I was given enormous freedom. I chose Thanos as the bad guy. I chose the members of the team. I came up with the storyline and everything. They let me choose all of that. So that was completely unaided. We did go through a lot of different versions. One of the upsides of being hired on this writing program where you’re not working for anybody else, you’re not allowed to go pitch around town, you’re only working for Marvel, was that we had the luxury of time. They had me for two years and then they brought me back freelance for another draft. So I got to try out different combinations of characters, different relationships. There were versions where Quill and Gamora were romantically involved, versions where they weren’t romantically involved. There were a whole lot of variations that you don’t usually get when you’re hired to do a big blockbuster. On this one, I was able to try out a bunch of different things until we had the right combination. But I’m really happy that, you know, as we were getting closer and they realized that this was something that they were actually going to make, Thanos became more of the overarching bad guy instead of the direct antagonist. Ronan the Accuser was written in as the direct antagonist so that they could save Thanos for future movies. That was probably the only major concession that had to be made in regards to setting up the slate for future films and how it fits within the MCU.
    Good read if you're interested in the genesis of GotG.

    A New Kind Of Criminal Intent - Vincent D'Onofrio On Playing The Kingpin - Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movie, TV News

    Either he is just rambling or there is some stuff to be read in here. Good actor though, looking forward to him as the Kingpin. He does slowburn/wait for the shoe to drop menace as well as anyone.
