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.

Appease? Pullesssse. For whatever reason, you are making simple marketing and sales decisions and turning them into some kind of racially motivated war on white people. My only guess as to why you see it that way might be that you are feeling oppressed. Are you? Feeling oppressed because a huge freekin corporation has decided to bolster a waning icon by depicting a fictional character different from what you are used to?
For crying out loud. must your aliens also be white? Superman is a fictional character from another planet with super powers ''far beyond those of mortal men''. Superman is not black or white or in between. He is a bloomin ALIEN>>.
I don't see what you're seeing in this. The current swapping of races and genders in characters in movies looks very much like pandering to the politically correct crowd.

I was thinking they need to just give in and make a whole new series.... the Social Justice Warriors.
It can star characters like SuperWoke, Snowflake, Soy Boy and Captain Triggered.
Their superhero lair can be the Safe Space.
They can battle the evil forces of MAGA.
Superman was definitely white, as was Batman and a host of other characters,
