I think people are picking on Cyber too much. While he goes overboard sometimes, and I don’t agree with him on everything either, I admit, he has a point on some things, like bad/mediocre reboots are getting overdone, (occasionally a good one will appear) and the “creators” in charge really shouldn’t insult fans, or the original series they’re rebooting, as it’s bad PR, and downright unprofessional.
Like for example, if they made a “New Super Mario Bros. Super Show,” I might be a bit turned off, if the new show runner kept bashing the original, or fans of the original, and bragging about how good their version is.
The original wasn’t perfect, and corny, but it would come off disrespectful, off-putting, and like they don’t care about the source material.

Though it doesn’t help his argument at all when, in listing said reboots, a good chunk of said list is either not a reboot, list things that are clearly not reboots (or at least stretching the definition as such), or failed to take into account which reboot is being mentioned.
@Cyborg_pony
Bit late, again, but at least by how the original post is worded, it’s only in the context of reboots squarely rather than “And the big point was things you’re not allowed to dislike.”, which mind you was not even brought up in that particular context, not to mention comes across as vary obvious dodge to save face, to me anyways.

I never cared for live action Wolverine’s look. If I ever said anything though, I’d be met with an onslaught of “well, it’s not going to match the comics 100%”, “this is for a new audience”,etc,etc…

Yeah, actually I would. Your whole movie is freaking blacks,grays, and dark blue cool colors.
Sabertooth was realized perfectly, though.

That tree or pole or whatever he’s holding couldn’t look more fake.
Toad was pretty good too.

A different look from the comics, but it works for a lesser known character like him.

Well, pardon me for being defensive to the point of pissing people off.
Besides, if you create something and your fans or fandom becomes toxic, what would you do?
Sit and do nothing out of fear that other fans might hate you and bully you and think you’re “insulting the fans”? Because that’s what I think fans want when a revival/reboot or otherwise doesn’t go the way the fans want if the creator makes their own spin.

Besides, if the entertainment fails to pick interests in the audience, then it’s clear the product is not all that superior.
After all, if the audience starts fleeting en masse, how are you gonna pay the colorists, writters, designers and all the workers?

You hire Cheaper.
and cheaper.
and cheaper.
Pretty much most use established franchises as just a tick on a resume so they can go to other studios and say “I did [INSERT IP HERE].” They’re not going to look at the reception of the product itself. Just hear Popular franchise and then sign the contract.
Along with hiring based on using them as shields for criticism. Most of these creators they hire only have a 5 year shelf-life. Most of the ones I’ve seen are now desperate and begging for crumbs, but they’ve burned every bridge erected for them both with fans and colleges. No one cares about them anymore, especially not those companies that used them because they were hired on merit or talent and cost them more money then made.

Oh, another thing regarding my last post. It also wouldn’t hurt to be mature to your audience and even critics.
Like, if your doing a reboot or long-running series, don’t alienate the older longtime fans for things like politics. It’s just bad business practice.

Okay, pandering to the bigots, treat the toxic fandom like people and ignoring the minorities, got it.
Oy vey…
Nobody is saying this at all. Not all critics or older fans are “toxic,” just because they don’t like something newer, and not everyone on opposite sides to your own personal politics are “bigots.”
(Heck, I tire of seeing even liberals being accused of being “Trump supporters,” just because they don’t like a new reboot. I also don’t believe all Trump supporters are “bigots” either.)
You’re always so pro-corporation, but I got news for you, these corporations don’t care about you, they don’t care about minorities, they don’t care about social issues, they only care about making money.
I’m not saying all companies are “evil,” but they aren’t some “greater good” either.
I like Disney, but I don’t have to love everything they make. (Such as that bad looking Home Alone reboot.)

Look, the people who don’t like it can go too far, by for example bullying the creator or developer just because of something they don’t like or that ruined the reboot.
For example, the Last of Us fanbase and the He-Man fanbase or the Star Wars fanbase bullying a human being just because of their imperfect behavior over what they did to the franchise.
Also, if nobody is saying this, why do people on the internet think that everything with diversity is woke nowadays?
Black people have their time to shine, Asian people have their time to shine, but women? Nah, it makes the project woke therefore bad.
And what’s wrong with money?
