I didn't think they were this desperate after their initial plan failed.
Desperation that works in favor of the consumer is never a bad thing. More footage means more people are going to get a better picture of whether to go see the movie or not, whether it's worth their time and money.
Yes but I think a cartoon could be a good introduction to the movie, and also a movie is a big deal so testing the waters for what villains and supporting characters the viewers like in a cartoon could help people understand the movie better.
The 2009 animated movie was a good enough test. It was a good animated movie.
C'mon, time for live action. WB has pussy footed long enough.
