"Jordan, who admits that he is a “comic book guy”, agrees that he probably shouldn’t mess up people’s perceptions about who Clark Kent is."

Racism against whites is alive n well. How about they create a new character for a black actor. This cultural stealing and purposefully wiping out any white characters that are seen to be powerful.

Guessing you didn't read the article. He wants to be Calvin Ellis. Not Clark Kent.

That probably won't matter. The Hollywood and the media will market him as the next Superman and fire up the race card cannons full blast anyways.

Personally I don’t like when they change any character’s appearance so much that it tramples on the original for political reasons. One big problem is that people judge things by appearance and put people in categories based on skin color. The politically charged reasons they change characters skin color/ethnicity is wrong. Make good characters and if you want diversity make more original characters. Simple

Cultural appropriation is almost complete. All white male characters must be abolished. Xmen - FAIL, Ghostbusters - FAIL, and now we have Superman. Let me predict how this will play out. FAIL.

m2stech149d ago (Edited 149d ago ) I want to see a white Caucasian Black panther, Luke Cage, Cyborg, Black Lightning and Storm.
