Speaking with AlternativeNation.net, the legendary actor and voice actor Stacy Keach spoke about his role as Wallenquist in the newly released Sin City sequel, A Dame To Kill For. Acknowledging the movie's box office failure, Keach admits, "The movie’s not doing great, I think the reason the critics are saying is that they waited too long. Waited too long between the original and sequel. Its not doing business. I have a feeling that its longevity down the road will show, and it will be redeemed."
When asked by the interviewer about the longevity and box office value of comic book movies in general, the actor stressed that as long as the vision and right writers are available, any medium is here to stay. "No, I don’t think its gonna fizzle out! Animation and graphic storytelling are here to stay. Its part of the form of language of film," later adding, "Its about the writing. Its all about the writing, the vision, the writers and the producers."
Keach used Marvel's latest box office monster Guardians of the Galaxy as an example of how comic book movies are here to stay, saying, "Isn’t that a great movie?! Bradley Cooper, look at him! I loved that movie, just loved it. That’s another example of a combination of style. Inclusion of animated figures working with live action figures."
