Anyway, here’s the transcript of what he said during the interview on Bravo TV. You can check out the video here.
Well, it turns out…and this is gonna get me in a lot of trouble. It turns out that the person that I helped become Iron Man, when it was time to re-up for the second one took the money that was supposed to go to me and pushed me out. We did a three picture deal. You did the deal ahead of time. A certain amount for the first one. For the second a certain amount. For the third…they came to me for the second one and said, ‘We will pay you 1/8th of what we contractually had for you, because we think the second one will be successful with or without you.’ And I called my friend who I helped get the first job and he didn’t call me back for three months.
What do you think? Does Howard just seem like a bitter man? Is there more to this story than he is letting on?
