DUBLIN – Samuel Beckett argues Marvel owe him millions of dollars.
Famed dead Irish playwright Samuel Beckett is suing Marvel Studios for copyright infringement over the use of the name Endgame in their latest film Avengers: Endgame. The inebriated wordsmith Skyped the Studio Exec bungalow last night to vent.
It’s a complete disgrace. A disgrace. Endgame was my title. Mine. Already I’ve had trouble with DC with their Waiting for Superman debacle but they had the decency to settle out of court for an undisclosed sum. This shower of dicks won’t even reply to me.
Could that be because you are dead?
We are all dead. All of us. We are born above a grave and our fall is what we call life. Mine is over but yours will be to.
But you must know titles aren’t legally subject to copyright?
I do. I do. But let me ask you this. Where did the idea of Thanos come from? That’s right. Little old me. I’ve been snapping my fingers for fricking years hoping everyone would disappear. One day Kevin Fiege saw me doing it and asked me for the crack. I told him and the little blighter went off chuckling.
