Blog@Newsarama interviews video guy

We’ve all been cracking up at those “I’m a Marvel and I’m a DC” videos on YouTube, but only Blog@Newsarama interviews creator Michael Agrusso:

1. How long had the idea for “I’m a Marvel… and I’m a DC” been percolating?

I pretty much acted on it as soon as it occurred to me. Around late February/early March, I was looking online and I read the news that both the Wonder Woman movie and the Flash movie had lost their directors due to creative differences with Warner Bros. On the same day! I was disappointed because I had been looking forward to seeing those movies.

Meanwhile, Marvel had a slate of movies featuring a slew of their characters scheduled through 2009 and beyond. And, say what you will about the varying quality of some of their movies, at least they were getting made. I had also just seen some of the Mac/PC commercials, and that’s where the idea for the first one came from.
