HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!

This franchise is falling apart quicker than Donald Trump's popularity.

Hopefully next time they will get an actor and not a piece of cardboard for Superman. Oh, and maybe some writers.

I kind of feel bad, because I think he could have been a good Superman if he was given the chance. I mean, he's good in other movies, and even though Justice League was a bit of a mess I thought he acquitted himself very well as a more traditional, heroic Superman at the end.

Michael B Jordan as a possible new Superman? I'm totally okay with that, and I think he'd be able to be a good Superman and a good Clark Kent.

I hope that Warner Brothers gets a handle on the series. I mean, they're doing quite well in their other slate of movies that don't feature superheroes. The Meg, Crazy Rich Asians, and The Nun are all WB movies and have been the number one movies for like the last month and a half! They're the solid number two Studio behind Disney.

We already have a black Superman though, his name is John Henry Irons. No need to race swap our man in blue and red.

Doesn't matter what ethnicity Superman is. He's American, and they come in all colors.

The best arguments I've read against a black Superman today have been from black folks saying how Superman is tied to Siegel and Shuster's Jewish roots: blending into white society while not being Anglo.

Is it still cannon that the Kents and a local doctor fudged the paperwork to make it seem like Clark was their biological child?

He had a good enough start in MoS. Then he's just a mopey butthole who hates being Superman and wants to murder Batman for two movies.

Zack Snyder doesn't understand superheroes.

It's what made him a good choice for Watchmen...and WOEFULLY awful for everything else.

^ he probably signed a 6 picture deal (or some other number) then WB wanted him to do a cameo and his agent said "sure but that counts as one of the pictures" and WB said "no, this is in addition to that", but getting out from under the current deal would let him renegotiate for a bigger piece of the pie, so it ends in a stalemate

If he was signed for a particular number of movies, you would expect him to be on contract for at least one more due to Justice League being truncated from two movies to one.

Well, I have to give him props, his answer was about the best response you could come up with that wouldn't bring any ire from the fandom
There are no more good TV Shows, only ones that haven't disappointed me yet.

Show me the responses from the media when a Caucasian man is selected to play Black Panther. When the net doesn't explode with race rage, I'll endorse any race-swapped character you can name. Bunch of hypocritical bastards.

Edit - didn't do my due diligence. MBJ said he'd like to play Calvin Ellis, a Superman from a different Earth that debuted in 2009, and he was black from his creation. That's a great choice. Play a fresh character. I'd watch it; he's a great actor. I just cringed when "black Clark Kent" gets mentioned.
I'm not a hero. I'm not a savior. Forget what you know.

I'm just a man whose circumstances went beyond his control.

Making a POC character white is NOT AT ALL REMOTELY THE SAME THING as adding a minority character in place of a formerly white character.

...but that's going down a line of thought that really isn't apropos for this board.
...and in this one instance (and a SMALL handful of others) I agree that this particular character has a rather white identity.
