Re: Abrams wanted to blow up more than Romulus
Anyway... the story about the new universe creative team having wanted to lay waste to the old one, just doesn't sit right with me. Not because it wouldn't have been dramatic. More because it seems a bit unnecessarily spiteful...
They wanted to make the biggest bang they could make. It's great they destroyed Vulcan and killed Amanda, but I honestly didn't have any emotional investment in those versions of the character/planet.
