Tony Goncalves, uno degli executive di HBO Max, ha voluto chiarire la policy della compagnia, rispetto al successo della campagna che porterà a rilasciare la versione di Zack Snyder di Justice League.
“There’s different types of fandoms… My reference to the fandoms is the fact that we’re in a space where consumers are loud. Consumers guide, and we absolutely have to listen as industry. I had a boss that once said, ‘Industry and consumers aren’t always aligned, but consumers do tend to win.’ It’s a fine balance. And I think when it comes to video, when it comes to entertainment, when it comes to content, consumers have never had more choice, and they’ve never had more of a voice. But that doesn’t mean that we will go and invest our dollars in every single fandom that exists.”
E’ vero che gli spettatori vanno ascoltati, soprattutto quelli del fandom di una delle proprietà più rilevanti della galassia Warner, ma non si può pensare di rifare ogni film.
“But I think the reference to the Snyder Cut and the ‘Friends’ fandom is the fact that consumers are speaking, and we have to listen. It doesn’t mean that we’re going to go redo every movie ever made. But I think that we definitely have to have our ear to the ground. And I think we do.”
