Michael Straczynski: I have friends in different parts of the world, and they'll all go online at the same time and all pull up a movie and hit play, at the same moment, and then they'll comment to each other about it.

Saying about J. Michael Straczynski: Life isn't about the final moments, it's about the journey, it's about process.

You could just show that fight, and it would be great, but seeing that journey illuminates that fight and adds profound meaning to it.

J. Michael Straczynski Quote: Here's the miracle: I grew up thinking, 'Wouldn't it be great to write 'Superman' someday?

Those were very literally the goals I set for myself, the dreams that I thought I didn't have a chance in hell of ever actually achieving. But it's happened.

Quotes about J. Michael Straczynski: When the Seinfeld show said it was going to be a show about nothing, everybody said it couldn't - wouldn't work. It did. Thor is about something, about that character finding his destiny, but it's not doing what was expected... and yet it's doing very well.
