With Another Successful Film On The Books, Does That Mean Someone In Comics Will Be Or Was Let Go?

I hope not, but I'm hearing rumors that this may have happened. I can't find an official announcement, though, and I'm sure it will come out in plenty of time to report it or update it it here. Congratulations to the filmmakers involved for making what sounds like a very entertaining movie with characters made by and narrative elements strongly affiliated with creators like Jack Kirby, Joe Simon, Stan, Gene Colan, Don Heck, Ed Brubaker, Steve Epting and so many others. I wanted to mention it because the thought that people would be let good as millions upon millions roll in is worth noting for the corporate context in which a lot of comics are made and for how fundamentally inurred we are to this practice.
