Mentioning JK Rowling’s name may not be the wisest move given the situation Harry Potter The author’s increasingly polarizing presence in the pop culture pantheon, but Vaughn still did it again in an appearance at New York Comic-Con (per The Hollywood Reporter), which explains his self-aware blockbuster’s place in the world.
