    I don't think anybody truly believe them ...unless they don't know DC's treament of Cyborg outside of animation.

    It is astonishing how it seems they're avoiding even talks to get something off the ground tho.

    Static has the whole animated series to lean on -- I think he's gonna be featured in Young Justice 3 as well, but don't quote me on that.

    Gotta see it before I believe it with DC.

    I'd rather have a good Ambush Bug movie than a bad Cyborg flick.

    Well, I wouldn't go quite that far. If they were avoiding it, Vic's film never would have been optioned in the first place. What I find astonishing is that they can't seem to get his comic together. It doesn't take 50 mil to make a funny book.

    "SDCC 2017: Early Details And Art From Young Justice Season 3"

    "Every season of Young Justice takes place in a separate time and uses a different cast of characters. Season 3’s team will include Static, Kid Flash, Robin, Wonder Girl, Spoiler, Blue Beetle, Thirteen, Arrowette, Arsenal and Beast Boy (seen left to right in the image above). Thirteen was described by Weisman as an entirely new character, though we wouldn’t be shocked if she was inspired by an existing one. As for Arrowette, she appeared in Season 2 as “that little girl who watched Green Arrow and Artemis save her father’s life,” and became inspired to become a heroine herself, specifically an arrow-using one."

    Speaking of the Aquaman movie, have the race-bending mouth breathers ever came for Mamoa like they did Mke Jordan.
    I mean Arthur Curry looks a whole like different now than he did in as a blonde blue-eye in the Superfriends and the Nick Cardy covers in his own book back in the day. Jussayin'

    NO.

    It seems it's fine for Mamoa and in fact he and Gadot's heritage have been used to scream Justice League is diverse. Yeah if we talk actors only and the movie.



    And Ed2962-your friend is acting up again. Bashing Panther (again) and now screaming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are SJW. A black April and 3 blacks doing voices will do that for ya.

    Well, we as audience-members know that Will Smith is a co-star of the movie, and the biggest name-actor in the ensemble. We know that his character's not likely to die, and Smith the actor knows it because he's read the script.

    Deadshot, the character in the movie, doesn't know he's in a movie, and has no reason to think that he can get away with making comments like "errand boy" without getting his head blown off.

    Ostrander wrote his SQUAD characters in such a way that though they frequently test their "masters." they're never blind to the fact that they could be killed for insubordination. But Smithshot insults Flag and Flag just takes it. There's no story-logic to Flag's weakness; the filmmakers put him in this subservient position because it's become de rigeur to let fictional black characters dump on white ones. It's "safe" humor, whereas anything close to the reverse calls forth all sorts of acrimony from both POC and non-POC.

    Want proof? Search this thread for reactions to the "janitor" joke in FORCE AWAKENS.

    There's all kinds of logic problems with SS but again, Smith smarting off to Flagg does not equal Flagg's character being subservient to Deadshot. Now let's say Smith was calling him "cracker" and "h*nky" throughout and the movie seemed to justify his behavior maybe you'd have a case for black on white racism. Although, keep in mind there's some people who feel SS had some subtle stereotyping of minorities among other things.

    I remember when Force Awakens was released and the reactions here. While Finn being a janitor came up, it was actually low on the list of problems folks here had with his character. But even if the reverse were true, it still wouldn't prove the case of reverse racism in the SS movie.

    I asked him why for all his bashing of Marvel/DC minority properties he doesn't promote black owned characters by other creators.
