A Black Superman now really?, Black Batman it Shows an Agenda a Pattern by Hollywood and Western Comics.

It appears that DC comics maybe planning a another DC movie about Superman but a Black Superman. If anything should DC comics go forward with this movie i dont see how its going to be a popular just because they announced that they might include the actor who acted as black panther.
If anything this is lazy race pandering and race baiting.
Alot of DC comics even African readers are not very happy about this.

I figured one of the new Charlies angels would be a man...a gay man but a man..

But i do agree.
It will fail.
The blame will be racism even though the last several superman movies were flops with a white actor..

Diversity above all else.

I don't know about all these comic book pictures everyone keeps talking about. So does DC Comics produce their own film adaptations? Or do they sell the rights to a production entity, who then alters the story and/or characters to fit their perceptions of public opinion? Honest question.

You know why Black Panther succeeded? It wasn't because he is black, and you couldn't cast him as white and get that film to make it too, just like you won't make it doing this.

Sounds like cultural appropriation geared towards racists who hate white people!

I think it's a fad. It's something that hasn't been used too much in the past and they are getting desperate to give us something new. Also apparently it plays right into some sort of inane agenda.
So get ready for more blackening and womening and maybe gaying and a pinch of transsexuing. Because it's new and different.
All adverts are disproportionally black, hollybore films are full of magic wimminz; and black people don't get their own films but everything is just a remake with blacks and wimminz in it.

Until they get bored. Until we are so saturated with the blackening and womaning that it will be edgy to cast a [wait for it] White Male!!!!!!!!! as main characters again. [Awardwinning and challenging Blockbuster in 2035]

It has happened a bit in the comedy circles. The SJWs have stopped offensive comedy to such an extent that now some millennials are starting to make comedy that isn't even funny but really offensive again. And it's sooooo edgy and new.

This is exactly what will happen with Films as well. Just wait it out.

Making white characters black = acceptable

But when you suggest that a female character be played by a transsexual suddenly your called a bigot.

I wonder what would happen if we suggested an Hispanic Blade. Or maybe an Asian Storm?

Could WWII german soldiers be played by minorities?

Here's a novel idea, though it may be (gasp) racist or sexist. Why not instead of taking white characters and making them black or female, why doesn't hollywood create NEW characters? Or would that be to far out of a concept?

that would require work , inovation and creation .

all the " white male " caracters that are being " re-cast " have all the origins , back-story and exploits - ready writen

a " new " black // female hero - would need all that creating from scratch

thats why they hi-jack existing characters

Pffffff....this is getting tiresome.

Wake me up when we get to the point where the new Shaft remake will feature Channing Tatum.

Come to think of it...don't wake me up.

Peace

Until the Western Comics keep failing in Sells and Movies like this don't well in the theaters they will eventally wake up once everything they tried so hard wit this virtue signal and race obsession i swear its almost like a porn addiction that Hollywood has.

They to themselves think Whites are declining in population because of demographic shift. Dispute the fact that white readers being the largest western comic and comic buy readers. They then believe that replacing white characters is necessary for the demographic shift. Because of their white replacing off popular characters and worlds.

They are hoping that the new demographic minorities would quickly jump into their comics and movies. Make a huge profit.

Well that doesn't seem to be the case.

I agree. Lazy writing and lazy conceptualization. The whole concept of these age old super heroes still holing power in the box office demonstrates just how rigid Hollywood's creative juices have gotten. If it worked to make money in the past let's try it again. And again. And again.

A black Superman? Sure why not give it a try. If it makes money we could expect the actor back, if not well, it was tried.

I mean they found that they could keep changing the actor who played Batman and the actor who played Spiderman. Over and over.

Once people showed that they would accept another James Bond other than Sean Connery, the franchise was turned into an iconic vehicle. Like it was an honer to get to play 007. Same with Batman now. How many Batmans? How many Supermans? So why not see if a black actor will win at the box office.

So who would be the first black Superman. Maybe Will Smith as an aged Superman with a paunch .

Agenda? Other than trying to keep an old iconic money maker viable after years and years I don't suspect anything more than hopes of profit.

Chief. We should not forget that Hollywood is to a large degree, American culture tho the rest of the world. These movies today are not just targeted to Americans but to people of all races and nationalities. THAT is the emerging market. The World Market.

We can see this in TV shows as well. Cross cultural teams of doctors on the doctor shows. Multi-national characters in the Cop Shows. International actors in the Lawyer shows. It's all over the place. Its is money driven and that is the agenda. Sell to the widest possible market.

Notice how now often many characters speak in their own language? Sub-titling in English for the American viewers? It's happening more and more.

So I don't think it is any agenda to minimize white characters but rather to appeal to the wider world market.

Come to think of it though, didn't white culture turn Jesus from a man of middle eastern origins into a lovely white guy?

You have two options.
Try and appease the SJW leftist outrage mob and likely flop.

Or acknowledge your actual fan base by sticking to the story.

If DC has any sense they will take what Joker achieved and run with it.
