"so how do yall feel about DC forcing a Black Superman flick..."


  

          

and the manner and context in which they are doing it?

https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/movies/movie-news/black-superman-ta-nehisi-coates-warner-bros-movie-1234947599/?utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter

I have a few issues w/ it personally
- there are already several black Supermen in the comics history. use one of those instead of color swapping Clark/Kal-El for the clout. Val-Zod ring a bell?
- knowing they wouldn't let Snyder put Jon Stewart GL in the Justice League like he wanted
- knowing how racist and shitty DC was to Ray Fisher
- THEY STILL HAVENT DONE SHIT WITH STATIC or any of the other legendary, actually black, heroes they have

Warner/DC is just bizarre. They got a pot of gold right in front of them but they want to go all the way around the world looking for another pot of gold that may/may not exist.

mentioned if they want to to a Black Superhero movie why not use John Stewart or Static? They already effed up Cyborg.

Honestly I feel like DC should just step back and take a break. Maybe focus on animated films for a while. They've done great things in animation, and Into the Spider-Verse from Sony proved that a good animated superhero film will do NUMBERS.

They thought just rebooting it with women would be enough of an update to make it interesting and then when it sucked everyone (fanboys) blamed it on the fact that it was all women, not because it was just a weakly thought-out written project.


They floated Shaka Kings name to direct it but I hope he keeps his distance. Barry Jenkins can take the hit if it doesn't work out.

BTW, how was TNC's Black Panther run? I tried at least the first issue and found it dry but I wasn't really following BP like that.

i will never understand how/why folks take this shit so seriously

they own the brand and can do what they want. you the consumer can do what you want

canon is always there to rewatch and enjoy, as well.

This is patronizing to me. It’s a one-off, instead of truly rolling with a
character that can CO-EXIST with Superman.

They don’t want to have competing franchises.

I don’t want a Black Superman. I want a ( black skin)
Kryptonian character with his own franchise.

I take it as they are rebooting Superman again. Just like they are with Batman, etc.

Everyone hates what DC did with Snyder, but get aggy when they want to go a different direction?


They should reboot everything and just drop the shared universe shit. Its extra corny and doesn't really fit with DC it seems.


I love the mad-making that a black superman will create. *shrugs*

Not gonna lie, I like Miles, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't feel a kind of way if they replaced Peter Parker. Having both characters exist at the same time makes it better, but still...

I suppose in theory a black Superman wouldn't be the end of the world. But how WB is going about it doesn't sound authentic. And yeah, I'd feel some kind of way about it, even as a black man.

Whatever. It will be a mess one way or another.

Miles is just an alternate version with all the other alternate versions,
similar to the green lantern.

Venom to maximum carnage to to the alternate verse..just so many spinoffs.

It’s not like Peter Parker is being drawn as black. Miles is actually his own franchise.
I’m cool with that.

The corp is a galactical police force with different species throughout
the universe. Different alt versions of Spider-Man aren’t a force or galactic
guardians, but some of those versions stand as separate entities like the different species in the green lantern Corp. There are 100 alternate versions of Spider-Man.
Some are different versions of Peter Parker, while others are different individuals
all together. Miles Morales being one of them.

Miles Morales and Peter Parker have met each other. There is no black peter
Parker

..There are 7204 individual members of the GL Corps operating as pairs in 3600 sectors of the SAME universe.

The existence of the multiverse means that there are even MORE GL Corps in each of those dimensions.

There is only ONE spiderman (or equivalent) in each dimension of the multiverse. That's nothing like an entire armed brigade selected to help police the universe.

They are separate entities regardless of how many there are or what they do,
or how many universes are patrolled. Each member stand as its own entity.
Those members aren’t a version of Hal Jordan, no matter if it’s 1 or
7000.

The alternate versions of spider man, who are not Peter Parker, stand as their own entity in whatever universe they exist in.

That was my point. I was referring to the similarities in existence, not similarities in what
they do or how many there are or their story line.

The alt versions of spidey, who are not Peter Parker are not reiterations of him

All those members of the GL Corps are not reiterations of Hal Jordan....

So it would be nice for this Alt Superman to be his own entity, and not
a black version of Clark Kent.

Marvel hasn't even touched the X-Men yet. Think about that. And those guys have basically been keeping the lights on at Marvel since the 90's.
