    Still wishing they had gone with Eiza GonzŠlez as Catwoman. Plus she is 5'8" so more the height I would expect Catwoman to be.

    The arab halo is a black arab by the way.

    Where was that stated? She just looked like a typical cartoon brown person to me.

    She looks black to me like the new indian mutant trinary from x-men and timeslip.
    Arabs could be white,black or brown.

    For the cartoon young justice version she has around same skin tone as cyborg.


    In fact she is darker.

    James Gordon should have a Swedish daughter, obviously.

    Or he could be Hispanic instead. Or he could have a wife of let's say Middle-Eastern descent and Barbara could be mixed race Middle-Eastern. If you want diversity, then make it actually diverse, instead of having two colors. Like I said, I would be very pleased if Andy Serkis plays Alfred. As mentioned before, they could've cast Eiza Gonzalez or Ana de Armas and had a Latina Catwoman, or they could pay tribute to Billy Dee and have a black Harvey Dent. Those are a few examples of a more diverse cast that isn't limited to changing the characters to one specific group.

    Right or he could be black because that's how Reeves envisioned his take on the character. This argument keeps popping up and it's silly.

    If studios want to showcase how diverse their comic book movies are by purposely raceswapping old characters, then doesn't it make more sense to try to be diverse across the board. Not sure how it's a silly argument given the current topic of discussion about diversity in entertainment.

    Pattison's batsuit is rumored to be the classic blue&grey and will be revealed next moth:

    "I’m hearing the Batsuit in Matt Reeves’ Batman will be blue and gray and that we might get a first look next month! Haven’t been able to confirm it yet but comes from a reliable source."

    https://twitter.com/thomas_polito/st...37788826673152

    "Take this as a rumor, but we are hearing from a reliable source #TheBatman’s suit will be a modernized take on the West costume, incorporating Blues and Greys, but no longer yellow, but most importantly I’m told it will feature the white eyes, a little like this minus the yellow"

    Easy. It's made on the assumption that the primary or only goal is diversity and not just the specific vision the director had for the character, or (GASP) him wanting to work with specific actors. His first choice was Mahershala Ali, an Oscar winner, and now he's working with Jeffrey Wright, another damn fine actor. Trying to make it into a box checklist "Well why couldn't he have cast a Mexican Gordon if he wanted to be diverse!" misses the point.

    Going by last names, you'd assume that Kents, Waynes, Kanes and Lanes came from England, Gordons from Scotland and Olsens from Denmark. To explain how people with other origins have these European names, you have to assume these are slaves names, or they inter-married, or they were adopted, or they changed their names to assimilate into the dominant culture. So even though you've given these characters no back story, there's an implicit back story in how they got the family names. It would be a lot easier to introduce diversity with characters that retain the traditional family names of their ancestors.

    With Lana Lang--the family name can go either way. It could be German or Hungarian, but it can also be Chinese. However, on SMALLVILLE, they made it that Lana's father of record and her biological father were both of European ancestry--and it was her mother that was Amerasian, with the maiden name Potter. Oopsy.

    So blue and grey but with no yellow oval or belt?

    Be interesting to see how the white eyes look.

    For those that might get Kirkus Reviews magazines-the OGN Green Lantern Legacy and Diana Princess of the Amazons get quick reviews.

    GL Legacy-the only establish Lantern seems to be John Stewart (although it says look for cameos). Tai (the lead" gets his ring from his grandmother who was once a lantern (one of the best). A new alien lantern is introduced.

    Diana is pretty described as a more kid friendly introduction to Wonder Woman. Although it does not lean on WW lore as much.

    I want to say they did a Raven review but I have yet to see one for Beast Boy or Mera's novel.
