Lionsgate and Marvel Studios have both signed the WGA interim deal.
The strike is working. The cracks in the studio dam are spreading. With each of these deals, it becomes harder for the remaining studios to stay at home in bed while the other kiddies are out in the playground playing. Each of these deals puts pressure on the AMPTP side in the "informal negotiations" now going on. (And is it possible that "informal" means "Nick Counter, sit down and shut up, we need to make a deal now"?)
If you're in the WGA, I think the message is clear: hold out, you're winning. Don't snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. Stay strong. Clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose.
