What in blazes are you talking about? There was nothing GB related in 2016.
That doesn't mean that Feig and Amy Pascal tried.

Universal can and still should try and make movies with the classic monsters I think. But their attempts at setting up a universe with the first movie at the expense of story was outright bad.
Even so, how many times can you go back to the same well and expect a different result? Even more so with a director that many still consider, and rightfully so, damaged goods?
That's funny you say that, considering people have said the same thing in regards to KOTM recent failure (or "disappointment"). There's literally nothing wrong with revisiting old characters and doing a different spin on them, aslong as it's good. Godzilla is an old character yet you're head over heals with them making those movies, why can't Universal do the same with their own iconic characters?
You seem to have to have this weird desire with rejecting anything new being done with these characters and I don't know why. I sense some hypocrisy, you guys complain all the time about nothing but Disney movies do good at the box office and audiences reject anything else-but you're dismissing another studios efforts before you've seen it or know that much about it.
Also I don't won't to stir a hornets nest, but didn't he say that because there was a lot of backlash against the movie before
it came out because of the female cast? That's not where all the criticism was coming from, but a good portion of the loudest stuff on the internet was.
