People Threatened To Kill Ninja Theory Over DMC
As you would expect, not everyone has been happy with the new Dante in Ninja Theory’s DMC reboot. Some people are so unhappy, in fact, that they’ve threatened to murder Ninja Theory. Yes, they want to put a gun to the studio’s head and pull the trigger.
OK, so that’s a joke. What’s not a joke is that folks who work for Ninja Theory have received death threats. Here’s what Tameem Antoniades tells OXM about it.
Alex Garland warned me about it because he experienced a similar thing with 28 Days Later where people were upset that it didn’t feature real zombies.
So I was half prepared for it, although I have to say that it has been pretty eye opening to see some of the creative ways in which people have chosen to vent their hatred. We didn’t expect death threats in comic book form or anti-DmC death metal songs!
OMG comics? I’d like to read those. Y’all should totally release them to the internet so we can all enjoy their probable greatness. I mean, they’re probably funny at least.
