Avi Arad an @sshole, apparently

From a recent interview with the Marvel honcho over at the great Comic Book Resources:

"I noticed of course that Stan Lee and Jack Kirby's names appeared in the credits. Did any money end up going to the Kirby estate or his relatives?
Arad: No, there is no money going to the Kirby estate. Jack Kirby was a hand for hire like all the Marvel artists. He got credit, but not money."

Avi, your highly paid, high powered job wouldn't fucking exist without the labours of this man. Show some respect. Oh, and thanks for making my mind up about avoiding this car crash of a movie at all costs.
