Would it surprise me if it was Sam? yes and no. I wouldnt put any further setback beyond marvel. This Sam Alexander push is just so overt and insane...I dont really think it would have made much difference at that time in terms of Sam's book's sales.
Honestly, the movies seem to be calling the shots. With the other marvel movies , they seem to be more or less strong arming Marvel continuity and not even checking with them/ etc.. Feige and Gunn both seem like fans of the DnA era stuff and Rider, and when you are talking about a couple billion dollars potentially, I dont think cats like Brevoort or Loeb or even marvel television have the kinda sway to nix a deal like that.
It also wouldn't surprise me if there was just too much movie, too many characters,budget issues or Rich and Peter were too similar for an introductory movie..it could be a thousand things. I dont think that is too naive. Hopefully we will get more answers.

: Like I always said - Rich in the GotG movie
: would've changed everything. Marvel would've

: we'll get is more NINO. Hope all the NINO

: - because I'm sure not. Like I always said -
: supporting NINO will just get you more NINO.
: And here's the proof. How about taking NINO

: in protest?
