...or if he already had some pre-existing issue with your work (or your person) prior to the Superman fiasco.
You know what's funny about the whole thing? As far as "Superman Lives" by Kevin Smith goes, WB was ready to go the distance and greenlight it. The Burton project, for all of it elaborate pre-production design work obviously didn't have enough going for it to warrant a full $100+ million investment.
Why do I have the feeling that Burton resents you because he's jealous?

With all due respect to a visual artist, I think we all know that Tim Burton is never going to win any awards for his skills with humane letters.
: Smell that?
Yeah, it smells like bile, but it's not coming from you this time. Maybe Burton really is The Penguin.
: That's the pungent scent of yet another bridge being burnt.

: But Burton said, "And I especially wouldn't read
: anything that was created by Kevin Smith."
: Not even 'Superman Lives', Tim?
: Seriously, though - that'd be an excellent quote for the jacket of a book,
: wouldn't it
