Marvel’s plugging the appearance of Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada on the Colbert Report tomorrow, January 29. Let’s put this in context: the show is working without writers due to the WGA strike. Because the Screen Actors’ Guild supports the strike, most stars and other actors won’t cross the picket line to appear on late-night talk shows. So the bookers are reaching, with people who wouldn’t normally get airtime used to fill slots. (Although Quesada appeared before, to promote Civil War, which in my opinion, he didn’t do very well.)
Best guess is that Quesada will be promoting the new Captain America, a story already spoiled by the NY Daily News. (It’s
Bucky the Winter Soldier.)
But does he feel at all bad crossing a picket line to do it? Maybe he thinks that since Marvel Studios settled with the WGA, it’s ok. In that link, Don MacPherson considers the many issues that deal raises, especially as it relates to Marvel’s online comic store.
