    I didn't like Wonder Woman, mostly because the setting felt... mismatched; I mean, a story about how humans can be evil all on their own in WW1? I think WW2 would have fit better because the Nazis were actually evil, not just old men with an outdated outlook on war. Also the villain felt... I don't know... meh? The acting was great though.

    The only bad thing about MBJ as Superman is that he's like 5'9" or something.

    The reason why nobody complained about a non-white aquaman is.... aquaman does not need to be white at all. There is no good reason why he could not be of another ethnicity, he is the king of atlantis after all.
    Starfire from Teen Titans for example does not need to be white, she doesn't have any background that would need her character to be white, after all....she is kinda orange.
    And while Heimdall from mythology should be white, they showed a good explanation of how it can be, that Asgard has "human racial diversity" within their society within Ragnarok (them having pillaged other worlds including earth and taken slaves from other cultures, just like the vikings did...)
    Superman however is a bit different though, he is supposed to be a white countryboy who lived a cosy country-life without the issue of "race" outside of him being an alien
    He is supposed to be a "perfect Boyscout" that blends in by being incredible boring when in disguise. Being black and all the baggage that comes from that in the US wouldnt fit.
    Just like how the "normal" Spiderman is a white nerd, (Miles Morales is a seperate entity, just like Spidergwen etc.)
    Batman as in Bruce Wayne should be white too under normal circumstances, because of his family background, unless you alter the premise (similar to Miles Morales or Spidergwen, it being an alternative version)

    If we are getting a black superman, can we get a full earth 2 line up? Their superman is black and their cast is different enough that it would give fresh new faces with ease. Just, just do it right? Earth 2 doesn't end well, and that should be the overall meta theme.

    As much as the nerdy fan boy in me is outraged by any change to Superman's image to pander to specific demographics, I'd watch Michael B Jordan paint drywall bc he's that goddamn talented, and he's already got the build for the role.
    I felt similarly about Donald Glover being Spider-Man, so I'm a bit torn about the idea.

  • Crazelord91

    I'd have to respectfully disagree, I think it's a really smart move for DC to focus on female superheroes. As a comic fan it's annoying and I just want an actually good JL movie already, but as a business ventire I get it.
    It's as it's an almost guaranteed audience of passionate viewers and revenue. Instead of copying Marvel or their own trends they're pandering to a good market. And all the "controversy" of making female lead films will be free press.
    DC can fill that void and find a market for Superhero films that hasn't been as saturated yet. I'm shocked they're not going even further and making a bunch of minority/ethnic based hero projects as well.
    After Black Panther did so well and was able to avoid criticism like Mohammed on South Park, due to risk of anti-racist backlash, I'd have expected Marvel to start pushing out African American hero films by the truckload.

    I can't see them doing a batman or superman film for a long time. I think they'll focus on somewhat lesser known characters. If you can call Wonder Woman, Falsh, GL and aquaman lesser known. I'd love to see a Question movie.......................played by Jackie Earl Hayley....................... this city's afraid of me.......................

    Race-swapping can be interesting in theory, but I’d hope serious thought would be put into how it would change his background. Was he still adopted by the Kents? If so, are they black too? Are they still farmers? How is life different for black farmers in Kansas than for white ones? Or if they’re still white, how did everyone deal with it being very obvious that they just found this kid? How did his peers treat him as a kid? Changing things like race without thinking about how else that would change the character is simply lazy and uninspired, but if they did the work it could be really interesting.

    Warner Brothers and DC by association has had some long running management and creative issues.
    On the flip side Marvel SJW is on the rise and it takes no prisoners. I think Marvel is going to soil itself on the other side of Infinity war 2. SJW Marvel is bad not because diversity is bad... but their approach to a hyper progressive push that is honestly just propaganda for a far left ideology is the issue. I loved Ms Marvel, I can't stand Captain Marvel.
    With them placing captain marvel at the end of the cycle, with their choice in actors, and using (apparently based on the trailer) the SJW narrative influences I have very limited hope for that movie to be any good or for films that follow infinity war 2 to keep up the quality as they phase out classic marvel and shift to the SJW format.

    Say what you will, but I have faith on Affleck's vision for Batman.
    If they stick to the partner formula with Alfred, plus the intel, sabotaging and infiltrating using Wayne's wealth (other than bat-toys),
    that could probably be the only Batman we deserve nowadays after Nolan's trilogy (again, say what you will, but it rocked).
    Fact: Let's not forget the fandom is so stupid that barely deserve quality products, and all things considered, Batfleck needs his chance.
    Edit: Let's see how many millions of dollars the comics industry can do by promoting everything to women and in-closet men.

    Since we all know you never research properly, why not do this? I know it might be hard for a far leftie like yourself but: THERE IS ALREADY A BLACK SUPERMAN! HE’S CALLED VAL ZOD OF EARTH 2! OR WHY NOT PROMOTE JOHN STEWART GREEN LANTERN OR A STATIC SHOCK MOVIE?!
    As for your constant endorsement for gender and race swapping the white man: YOU’RE NOT DOING THEM ANY FAVORS BY DOING THIS! WHY NOT JUST MAKE NON WHITE OR WOMEN LEADS INSTEAD?! THIS IS SIMPLY LAZY WRITING!
    How about we gender bend Samus to a man for the next Metroid reboot?

    wonder woman was ok, not great, but compared to the mess that are man of steel and batman v superman it's good and should have been a fresh start. like, reboot the whole thing and keep only wonder woman.
    I'm sad for batfleck, he deserved better, he was one of the few good things out of batman v superman, he deserved to be in a good batman movie.
    as for a black superman, sure, but make a white "black phanter" too, or changing a character's race is only "good" if it's from white to black?.

    Don't really care, because it's the DC cinematic universe. I LOVE superman, I love batman, I love the flash and wonder woman and feel these characters are a more interesting concept than the Marvel counterparts. But the marvel movies actually give you the characters they advertize. The DC cinematic movies give you "brooding lazerface mcflying brick" who cuts himself and shops at emo goth stores, trying to cosplay at superman in a world where the average IQ is "Trump Voter"

    Who cares if the writing is shit? Who cares if the plot sucks? Who cares who the director is? Make Superman black and it will sell tickets. Minorities will be thrilled to have representation, and old Superman fans will be enraged/curious and want to stop and stare at the car accident that is now the DCU. Everyone..."wins". Welcome to 2018, where identity politics rule the day. And, of course, if anyone is opposed to a black superman, theyz racistsstss.

    I have nothing against casting actors whose skin color differs from the classic 'standard' of an established character. Hell, I still remember immensely enjoying the Kingpin in Affleck's Daredevil movie. But if you do this, please please PLEASE do not do it for the sake of skin color, diversity or whatever. It should be done if the director is either convinced the actor in question will bring something new and great to the table that nobody else will be able to, or because they have a specific vision in mind that requires a specific actor or actress whose skin color wouldn't be a defining attribute. It could also be a matter of telling an alternate universe story about an established figure. Basically what I'm saying is that the reason for doing something like this should always be the motivation to make a good movie, not make a sociopolitical statement.

    DC animation is so much better than Marvel. DC TV series are so much better than Marvel. You'd think SOMEONE at WB or DC would figure out how to translate that success onto the big screen, but they just keep royally screwing it up OVER and OVER and OVER. If they did nothing more sophisticated than to put the DC TV universe onto the big screen, I would watch THAT over the garbage they've been releasing lately. As it is, my assessment of the movie characters is this:
    Wonder Woman: charming and entertaining
    Batman: bitter and tedious
    Superman: bitter and sullen
    Aquaman: bitter surfer dude
    Cyborg: bitter cuisinart
    Flash: seriously, where am I supposed to believe an awkward, introverted nerd got a suit of high tech custom made armour? Walmart?

    If they bring in Jordan as Superman it better be Earth 23 Superman, if they're just lazy as do nothing more than a palette swap I'm out I don't care if they change Soupy Man but they have to do it right. (I do highly doubt it will or even can be him though, I mean he works for Disney/Marvel and I doubt Killmonger is going to be a 1x villain, or even a 1x movie appearance he's set up to be Bucky 2.0 at this point. Or Loki)
    Also, if anyone thinks Gunn got fired because of cernovich you really are giving him way too much credit, I mean the dude is literally unimportant and even when Bob Iger himself said exactly why he fired Gunn, cernovich's name didn't pop up at all.

    Michael B. Jordan sucks. He is the equivalent of Brie Larson except I never saw him ever give a good performance and I've seen them all. This "charisma" people want to claim he has does not exist. If he was white, the only time his name and the noun charisma would be mentioned in the same topic would be to highlight the lack of it he has

    How bout they do a really good Green Lantern movie, with John Stewart?
    How bout they do a great Firestorm movie?
    How bout they actually take a PAGE from marvel, use their low tier characters, and make great films???

    I would love to see Jordan or another person of color take on the role because Superman was never white: he’s Kryptonion. He codes as white, and changing that could be interesting. Could a black kid raised by white parents in Kansas in this century find it in himself to be a beacon of hope for all? I’d be interested in that story.

      moviebob 7 months ago

      It's hard to remember with 20 years of hindsight, but yeah - at that moment "cult TV shows Baby Boomers watched in syndication as kids" was the big thing to make franchise movies out of and WWW had kind of a following. Plus it was really the first time Smith really stepped into any kind of remotely racial-political space in his "moment" as the top movie star, when it had been assumed that a lot of his appeal had been in being a version of a "hip hop star" that was acceptable to Middle American parents. In retrospect, it's understandable how much his career and persona were effected by it (especially since the film responded to the criticism by making the villain a full-blown racist)

    I think they should be hiring more diverse actors to play superheroes, I mean how many more white superheroes do we need?

It's sad that the MCU has 20 movies under it's belt, but the only Hispanic actor is Michael Pena. And the only Asian superhero is Wong, and the guy in X-Men Origins Wolverine.

    The James Gunn thing is really annoying for me. On one hand I agree that he's a brilliant director and Disney/Marvel may have made a huge mistake in firing him. I don't think anyone should be fired over tweets of all things, especially ones that were made over half a decade ago!
    But on the other hand, it's a great example of the left cannibalizing itself in a "reap what you sow" kinda way. But nearly all of Gunn's supporters are so lacking in self awareness to understand that they're the ones who caused him to get fired in the fucking first place! The alt-right didn't do this you fucking idiot, YOU DID IT!!!

Seriously throwing stones from a glass house here.

    Turning the DCEU into the Superhero Ladyverse isn't a bad idea at this point. It's certainly a better way of "over-correcting" their course than making the universe into the moody I'm-so-edgy teen boy of superhero cinema.
    It's a chance to give great representation to women in the genre and to women/girls who like the genre.
    Movies centring on Batgirl, Birds of Prey, Harley Quinn, et al also just sound like great ideas in general. As long as they get people to write and direct who actually know and like the characters and what makes them work. Not tools like Zach Snyder who totally missed the point of both Watchmen and The Dark Knight Returns as comics.

    White America isn't ready for a black Superman. I wonder if Black America is even ready yet. In a country where blacks are still the victims of prejudice, it's hard to imagine any black superhero proclaiming "Truth, Justice and the American Way." And this is currently the Trump era. A black Superman would simply be a pointless statement, and nothing more. It wouldn't be the coincidence of the best actor hired for the role, and it doesn't lend itself to any unique story telling. If WB wants to embrace a black hero, embrace Cyborg. An established DCEU superhero they already seem to have no use for other than a sense of diversity. If we're never going to see this JUSTICE LEAGUE Snyder Cut, then why can't they recycle the Cyborg origin footage, and film a CYBORG movie around it?

      yeet yeet well seeing as Bob is a man who supported the whole "gamers are dead" narrative i doubt he meant just the movies, & as far as the gun thing i have not heard anything about the Ult Right being involved

      i think he means watching the movies isnt a geek culture thing, not comics in general. because lets face it, it isnt "geek" culture if its apart of everyone's culture now.
      james gunn was fired by liberals, but because of a political scheme from the far right that idiots fell for

    Did anyone hear about Muhammad Ali being a possible choice for Superman before Christopher Reeves got the job?

    And there's the problem. People are so hyper focused and obsessed with who's playing these characters that they aren't thinking or talking about who's coming on to direct, write, and produce these films. Because most of the issues with the DC universe has NOTHING to do with the actors and everything to do with a lack of cohesive creative vision and the cynical film studio trying to make bank on current movie trends.

      well, and what vision there was was compromised by Zack Snyder being a joyless hack who has absolutely no idea why these characters were ever popular in the first place.

    Can we get every actor, celebrity and newsworthy person to issue a five-second clip of them pronouncing their own names? I'm tired of hearing five different versions of Kevin Feige, Henry Caville, and Gal Godot ("FIE-gee", "KAH-vel" and "Gu-DOT" with a hard "T" if you're interested.) Most words don't have built-in advocates for correct pronunciation, but at least we can get NAMES right, right?
    (The contrarian in me can hear protests amounting to "it doesn't matter" to which I reply "of course, it matters." Communication is how we humans excel. If we can't SAY it right, we won't write it right (see any and all misspellings for evidence that people write down what they thought they heard). And if we don't write it right, we can't communicate and the whole system falls apart. Not all at once like a catastrophe. A little at a time, like greenlighting The Emoji Movie.)

    I don't want MBJ to be Superman, not because of the whole black thing (I couldn't care less about Superman's race, he's a fucking alien ffs), but because I like where his career as an actor is going, and I don't want the absolute shit show that is DC to drag him down.

    I like how you speed up your voice to make you talk so fast, as if there are no commas or full stops in your sentence, zero punctuation if you will, very original and well done. So impressed

    I will say, it looks like Cavill's career prospects are better than those of anyone else who's played Superman. His turn in the smash Mission: Impossible - Fallout, his casting as the lead in the Witcher series, and being one of the three most circulated names to become the next Bond (while a safe choice, he could probably pull it off), all speak to good things coming to him in the not-too-distant future.

    Thing is that studios are cynical and greedy. I get that they are a business, but they have power to change things. Thing is also, that central audiences are idiots who enable this bullshit. Another thing is that is much harder to get general audiences to demand(and understand) quality, than for studios to make original movies. Do we really need more standard comic book superhero movies??

    I'm definitely feeling superhero fatigue. I used to look forward to the Marvel movies. Now it feels like homework. Gotta watch them all or you might miss something super important that will come back in one of the ones you actually want to see. I really hope DC goes goes for stand alone movies that only require 90 minutes of my attention and are actually fun to watch.

      it matters when it affects the backstory of a character -
      characters like Thor should be white because of Norse mythology. Steve Rogers cant be Japanese because he was in 1940s America. Black Panther should be black because he is ub an isolated African country.
      Superman is an alien, Aquaman isnt technically human, so the race doesn't matter for those two.
      the race of a character shouldn't (and really doesn't) mean anything unless it doesn't make sense in their backstory

    Sups should be Hispanic. He was created when the face of immigration was white and now that's changed.
