  • The first Ironman movie was so popular that fans were chomping at the bit for a second installment, but things got dicey about the sequel from the jump.

  • Terrence Howard, who played James Rhodes in the first movie, decided not to return because of failed salary negotiations with Marvel Studios.

  • Since the company also pushed filming to start without a finished screenplay, the writers had to scramble to keep up with the production schedule.

  • Hey buddy, expect, See you here.

  • Look, it's me.

  • I'm here to deal with it to move on.

  • But the biggest snafu had to do with Mickey Rourke's villain.

  • Will Smith, playing a swashbuckling superhero with a drinking problem, sounds great sign us up.

  • But strangely enough, 2000 and eight, Hancock was received less than enthusiastically.

  • Ah, lot of that had to do with the film's messy 12 year production in 1996.

  • An original draft for the film was deemed too long and dark.

  • Not everything has to be bag scream blood, more blood it.

  • If script troubles weren't enough, Michael men Jonathan Mostow and Gabriele Muccino each passed on the chance to direct due to schedule conflicts or creative differences with the studio.

  • Eventually, Peter Berg was brought on to helm the project as a final blow.

  • No, I really haven't.

  • While Margaret was originally slated for a 2000 and five release, director Kenneth Lonergan Onley delivered his final cut in 2000 and seven.

  • However, producer Gary Gilbert decided to create his own shorter cut and refused to contribute his part of the budget for Lonergan's.

  • This resulted in Searchlight Pictures suing Gilbert and the film being delayed for release.

  • Number seven, Alien three.

  • And of course, you expect me to accept all this.

  • Your word?

  • No, I don't expect anything.

  • The first two alien movies air near masterpieces.

  • So it goes without saying that there was a lot of anticipation for the third installment, although several big names were attached to the film at some point, most of them left due to creative disputes with studio.

  • I think it might be better if I left.

  • I find you unpleasant to be around.

  • But that's exactly what happened with 2016 Suicide Squad Right from the Get go, this villainous movie was plagued by production issues.

  • David Ayer, who had never directed a superhero movie before, was barely given any time to finish the script.

  • The way it works is it's like a bunch of ships crossing the ocean together, and you get to be the captain of your own ship.
