Oh, enough with the who plagiarizing thing. 300 was a temp track situation, Doomsday has a homage to the virus and 80's films. Other than that, there's nothing to call Bates a plagiarist, like he himself broke into a composer's house, stole their scores, copied them and then went everywhere saying "This is my score!".
