You heartless swine aren't thinking about the poor, poor children. There aren't enough black people in the film industry. The kids need to able look up on the screen and see people the same color as they are to feel good about themselves so they can strive for their dreams on the silver screen. This is exactly why I think all of the rosters in the NBA should be reformed to reflect the racial percentages of the cities they play in as well. We clearly need to end the meritocracy in sports so young, white children can look up on the screen and see someone the same color as them so they can achieve their athletic dreams. Color is what makes a person. Nothing else. Color is paramount. Get with it, people.

The blame will be racism even though the last several superman movies were flops with a white actor.


Being a local lad, Henry Cavill is for the most-part hailed as some kind of hero over here (Jersey, CI), but I have to agree, he made for a terrible Superman.

Like, Lois was in a relationship dude, WTH were you thinking? Stop acting so desperate!

I used to like Superman as a child, now I just think he's a douche lol

Doesn't take me 3 days..

I get that bastard in 12 hours.

Why?

Ohhh I get it..


Cheap wine and a 3 day growth is a dream of mine.. not that I like barnsey too much.. but I wish it would take longer..

More like, cheap wine and a fibrous test, these days..

For our friends who may not know the old classic... (I just forgot I mentioned the cheap wine, lol)



You'll dig it...

I don’t think it’s a big deal. There’s a billion white Supermans. Black panther was a huge success. It’s just business. They see a demograph that’s been largely ignored and they are taking advantage of it.

Also, this is what bothers you? Lol with everything going on in the world a black Superman is something to rant about?

a reply to: sooth

I am thinking about the poor, poor black children. They need more Black Panthers and fewer heroes who are merely black-washed white males. I mean isn't a white man a white man even if you give him a black skin? We are talking about Superman who is the epitome of whiter than white bread small town Kansas farm boy.

So either you have a counter culture black or you end up ret-conning the entire Superman story to the point where no one recognizes the character anymore and it likely fails on all angles.

Just freakin' create a new, powerful black superhero. Black Panther is proof of concept. He has broad appeal because he is his own character and not some diversity retread.

No. I’m down with an open and free market. There are millions of black people in the US. They are bound to be businesses marketing to them.

And I'm completely fine with that, just create the black superhero already. Why is that so hard? We know it works and we know that when done right, you catch more markets than just one narrow demographic too.

Super heroes have been recycled over and over and over. Business wise, it makes sense to adapt something that’s recognizable. Superman for instance. Everyone knows who Superman is. Also, the majority of people are going to watch it no matter his color.
