    Well, I’ll be damned. A fascinating choice for this movie. Knock wood, he doesn’t get Burwelled.

  2. Justin Boggan says:

    That was certainly unexpected, though as of late he’s kind of gotten a certain bigger status, so it’s not entirely unsurprising, so I can’t give Hollywood points for originality.

    But there is the Burwelled factor, which could become Mothersbaughed.

    talk about a downgrade

  4. Brent says:

    Fascinating choice. I feel like Giacchino is Tyler’s “Marvel” replacement. We’ll see if it ultimately goes to him. But, it’s still a VERY interesting choice… not quite sure what to make of it yet.

    Kinda odd. Well, let´s hope he delivers…
