We already have a black equivalent to Superman. His name is Icon.

I don't know how I feel about this all to be honest. It seems that both Abrams and Coates being used for one movie is horrific as it is. I've read some of Abrams Spider-Man books. They were terrible, I can't say how much I'm 'thrilled' that Abrams also tried to race swap John Constantine for his upcoming JLD show/movie he's got in the making….and now with working with Coates, I won't be surprised if they just raceswapped Clark Kent and made him black….not looking at their sources like Steel or the other superman Calvin Ellis.
Because generally writers like that don't care about the other sources. I'd be surprised if that's their goal, but it wouldn't be called a 'Reboot' if that's not their goal. Cause if it was about either two characters I mentioned above, then they wouldn't call it a reboot, it'd be a spin off films to the superman film.
Again, not saying they will raceswap Clark….but it seems likely due to both parties.

Why don't they do the green lantern who's black. Oh, sorry about your ultra-sensitivities, African-American.

If Hollywood thought blackwashing Johnny Storm caused backlash, that would be nothing compared to doing the same to Clark Kent.

There's a black Superman named Val-Zod, just like there's a black Spider-Man. Aren't you supposed to be the comic experts?

I love something about every incarnation of Superman. I really want more Henry Cavill in the role since they keep screwing him over but that doesn't surprise me. HOWEVER – I will not support a writer who mocks first responders especially ones from THAT day. The fact that they hired a piece of garbage like that and think it's totally fine says everything you need to know. If they knew about these comments it should never have happened. If they didn't, they should be hearing plenty about it now and condemning them all over the place. NEITHER SIDE should be okay with him mocking first responders. But they just whine ist and say that's why we don't want it.

They're going out of their way to sabotage the Snyder Cut too so that they won't have to acknowledge they should have made another Superman movie with Cavill to begin with but this is just appalling. Let this jerk write as many books for his leftist buddies as he wants but keep him AWAY from Superman! He clearly doesn't know what it takes to represent the ideals of the character. This is just another last ditch effort to squeeze a little more money off the character by giving that community sloppy seconds AGAIN, pretending everyone is ist if they hate it (get a new playbook, seriously. I'm sick of people hiding behind token shields to ignore the fact their writing is shitty) and say a standalone Superman doesn't work and retire the character for awhile (though if it keeps him away from monsters like him then I guess that might be a good thing? Wait for more competent people to take charge, although it would mean no Cavill so sad face).

I hope the new series does well and proves that we want Superman as he was intended to be. There are so many other characters you can play around with and bring to the forefront. Nobody wants sloppy seconds and nobody wants to be slapped in the face after decades of loyalty. Just make everyone happy and try your own thing! Give the viewers more options! New characters don't come with the baggage and almost always do better because of it anyway because you're not upsetting anyone with pre-conceived notions of how it should be done.

screams and pulls hair out This monster's comments should be front page news and most people have no idea he ever wrote that. Hopefully someone in the mainstream will finally get wise to it but I lost hope for common sense and decency a long time ago. They're all too busy praising what a brave vision this will be (since it's from the far left). GAG. Hard pass.

Warner Brothers has obviously looked across the fence and seen the success of Black Panther, despite it being a mediocre film (Chadwick Boseman deserved much better than that tripe). By casting Michael Jordan they can dodge any criticism of the film by waving the racism flag. Let's hope he's better than he was in Fant4stic or Black Panther, maybe they'll employ decent writers… We can only hope.

This specific type of politics in entertainment is about as deep as fashion and not ever as much fun. When people say they don't want politics in comics and movies, they're really saying they don't want politics that pull from a very shallow pool of ideas and are stopped at every potentially interesting turn by industry consensus. Politics in entertainment is totally fake and tedious. Fashion is more interesting and doesn't ruin as many lives.

Instead of race swapping Superman can we get a static shock movie instead.

Superman: Based on Moses and created by Jewish immigrants.
JJ: White Man who creates a reboot based on Black Men.
What? Seriously? You couldn’t have chose a character who was already black? There are some black superheroes that I would have loved to see get attention. Static Shock is a good one, there’s also a Green Lantern that was already black I really liked, and Cyborg, but no. Remake a character that created by people who felt alienated in their new country into something else entirely.

Again im fine with black, lgbtq+, non binary/x/y/z heros if u have to as long as story, creativity, and entertainment took the forefront. Problem is the piggy backing inclusiveness on already relevant creations which really shows the lack of creativity and originality. Absolutely lazy to say the least. Furthermore if any white actor
was swapped to play a black character all hell would break loose. Can you imagine a white Black panther, in a society of all whites only that is technologically advanced compared to the rest of the world…. wait that feels very close to a WW2 villain….

I'm reminded for some reason of Ben Kingsley's line in Lucky Number Slevin: "The first time somebody calls you a horse, you punch them on the nose. The second time somebody call you a horse, you call them a jerk. But the third time somebody calls you a horse, well, then perhaps it's time to go shopping for a saddle."

Gotta say, there's a black Superman in the comics from an alternate earth (earth two I think), if it's set on that earth I'm cool with it. But I feel like it won't be, it will probably be very pandery and crappily written.

JJ Abrams is a weapon of mass destruction. He can't make, he can only steal and destroy.

I hope they try to cast a black Superman, and no one wants to take it.

Blade was awesome. Luke Cage was a pretty good show. I didn’t like them because they were black. I liked them because they were well written. Black Panther was just meh for me. I wasn’t that impressed with it.

Hollywood seems to forget that the character is a character not a race.

Race swapping a character for the sake of race swapping is crap and audiences worldwide see through it.

Superheroes are MORE THAN A SKIN COLOR! Good god…

What happened to telling stories?

I won't watch any new Superman movies because I'm bored with Superman movies. It feels like Spiderman movies, they get rebooted so quickly.
I'd rather see Icon and Rocket get an animated show or even Static. I'm going to be checking out the Netflix show Locke and Key with my mom since I the entire graphic novel series.
It's too bad Yara Flor Wondergirl show was cancelled. CW would have ruined the mythology used in the show anyway.
I'd like to see a new Spawn animated series or movie too. But I'm not interested in Superman right now.

There's a way this could be done with cavill and Michael B using an adapted version of the Val Zod storyline that could work. Unfortunately Jar Jar isn't the 1 to pull it off. If ur not familiar with the Val Zod earth 2 story look it up on YT. What's sad is the Val Zod storyline would fit perfectly into zach snyder's knightmare universe. Use the flash to do a multiverse crossover. It could work. But not with Jar Jar in charge

They could have done Young Justice and introduced a roster of brand new teenage heroes. I am a huge fan of Young Justice, I do not know why they have to keep returning to the formula of reboots.
