Irate James Mangold Blasts Post-Credits Scenes in Profanity-Laden Tirade

Unleashing a torrent of f-bombs that ought to have earned his speech an R-Rating just like the movie Logan, director James Mangold went off on the state of modern filmmaking, especially post-credits scenes. Mangold was speaking at a panel at the 2018 Writers Guild Association event sponsored by carmaker Audi when he decided to totally let loose on what he hates about corporate moviemaking, maaan.

"The idea of making a movie that would fucking embarrass me, that's part of the anesthetizing of this country or the world. That's further confirming what they already know and tying in with other fucking products and selling them the next movie while you're making this movie, and kind of all that shit that I find really fucking embarrassing," Mangold said, according to a report from CinemaBlend, really sticking it to the man. "Like, that audiences are actually asking for scenes in end credits when those scenes were first developed for movies that suck, so they put something extra at the end to pick up the scores when the movie couldn't end right on its own fucking feet."

"Now we've actually gotten audiences addicted to a fucking bonus in the credits," Mangold said, his cussing beginning to lose meaning due to the sheet volume of it. "It's fucking embarrassing. It means you couldn't land your fucking movie is what it means."

"Even if you got 100,000 Twitter addicts who are gambling on what fucking scene is going to happen after the fucking credits it's still cheating," he ranted. "It's just cheating, but there's all sorts of bad habits like that that fucking horrify me, man, that have become de rigueur in the way we make movies and I think the fear of being one of them that did that end then everyone's patting me on the back and I feel like shit inside because I know I cheated, is probably the greatest thing that scares the shit out of me."

We wonder what he thought of Justice League. Probably waiting for the Snyder Cut.

And so, Jude Terror has moved on to a more important mission: turning Bleeding Cool into a pro wrestling dirt sheet!
