    Other than that, who really has the juice to be more than a background character? There is no "black panther" for black male xmen. They all kinda suck.
    Sunspot, Jessie Bedlam Shola Inkose/Link & Darwin are best choices for a main team but they all need a work for various reasons. Sunspot they only need stop trying to make him a white / white passing or tan & he’s good to go..

    Sunspot was always one of my favorite mutants. I wish they would have done more with him.
    Favorite teams. Alpha Flight, Avengers, Fantastic Four, West Coast Avengers, Justice Society of America, Legion of Superheroes.

    It's just not big movies.

    That has been used as a weapon against POC lead (especially black) films to get greenlighted.

    Yet no one points out that most black films-have broken even or made a profit without the China market.

    Kevin Hart nor Tyler Perry need China. Yet guys like Adam Sandler and Ben Stiller do. Pixels anybody?? flopped here but did well overseas.

    Netflix subscription cancellations in the United States surged last weekend as the streaming service faced backlash over “Cuties” and the film’s sexualization of young children, according to data compiled by research company YipitData.

    On Saturday, Sept. 12, Netflix’s cancellation rate reached a multiyear high and jumped nearly eight times higher than the average daily levels recorded in August.

    Gee would these be the same folks who axed their subscriptions over Dear White People? Because the title offended the snowflakes.

    Its ironic that Mulan had a disappointing box office debut in China after changing so much from the animated version to appeal more to the Chinese market. With the Chinese government baring the media there from covering the movie due to the Xinjiang backlash and the low box office turn out Disney will most likely lose money on the movie now.
    They tried to market Mulan is Wuxia movie that had actors from Wuxia films that come to find out wasn't a Wuxia movie at all.

    The Chinese audience doesn't need a fake Wuxia film when they get at least a dozen real ones every year.

    Ironically if Disney had made a whitewashed version of Mulan, the Chinese Audience would have bought into that and gotten all happy for a new J. Law film or whatever.

    But they tried to be fake authentic and reaction they got instead was "This is boring and you got the history wrong."


    They were dozens of Asian qwire work Directors they could have gone with not the least of which was John Woo and this failure could have been avoided.

    But everything about this movie is tainted so I'm not sad it failed.

    I've actually seen comments online about Chinese audiences being sad Mushu was absent. Which is ironic since I'd heard Chinese audiences disliked him in the animated movie from the 90s.

    How successful are John Woo movies normally?

    Michael B. Jordan Series ‘Gen:Lock’ Announces Season 2 Writers Room Supporting #ChangeHollywood Inclusion Initiative (EXCLUSIVE)

    The Michael B. Jordan-starring animated series “Gen:Lock” has increased representation and inclusion in its writers room for the show’s upcoming second season, producers Rooster Teeth and Outlier Society have announced.

    Daniel Dominguez, Maasai Singleton, Evan Narcisse, Kristle Peluso and Gavin Hignight make up the writers room for the second season of the series, which will premiere on HBO Max. The animated series takes place 50 years in the future amid an oppressive authoritarian regime that threatens to conquer the world; Jordan voices the series’ lead character Julian Chase and also serves as an executive producer.

    The writers collectively increase the show’s behind the scenes representation across Black, Latinx, and LGBTQIA+ communities.

    “Inclusivity and amplifying Black and Brown stories has always been at the forefront of Outlier Society and our productions,” Jordan said. “I am proud to work alongside HBO Max and Rooster Teeth to #Change Hollywood and ensure our writers room for ‘Gen:Lock’ is a reflection of the world we live in.”

    While his older films still hold legendary status, I don't think he's as big commercially as he once was. He did a film for Netflix a couple of years ago but it didn't get a whole lot of buzz.

    Yeah, that's Julia Carpenter in an image of latino Marvel heroes not Anya Corazon.
    My point still stands though.

    DC can identify their Latino and Latinx heroes- great. That’s a long way from they and WB throwing their full weight behind them and pushing them in comics and other media.

    Thank God for this.

    It looks like the PS5 is already sold out. At least for now.

    I’ll probably wait either way to get it. I still remember how my original PS3 just stopped working after a while.

    He's not a big deal anymore as far as industry acclaim goes but I know he seems to put out a costume drama on a regular basis.

    Considering he was the Gangster movie guy, I can only assume he got tired of the genre he revitalized or he saw how the wind was blowing and decided to play it safe.

    Or was told to.

    Modern day Triad Gangsters as antiheroes could be seen as promoting anti authoritarianism in China. So maybe he's got reason to leave the genre alone.

    Not every Disney animated movie needs a live action remake. Disney should have simply left Mulan as it was.

    In the year 2020, there's a very, very thin line between pandering, being culturally ignorant and just messing everything up in its entirety. This stuff can work if you basically get people from said culture to produce the movie but that can lead to a clash in production styles between two different countries.

    Producing a movie based in another country's folklore- particularly a country as nationalistic as China is very, very difficult. More so when simultaneously trying to pander to them.

    At the end of the day, Disney has ended up pleasing no one. Mulan's received lukewarm reviews in the US and hasn't done well in China either.

    I’d just drop bishop in with the cop/district x background and reveal the time travel back story later on. Unless he was intro’d as having something to do with kang (which might be cool, now that it’s been mentioned.

    As far as gambit goes, he is adopted and he’s Cajun because his adopted family is Cajun, so being black or mixed, wouldn’t actually matter (as far as being Cajun or not.) Although the comics/ other media have been mixing up Cajun and Creole for years, so I expect the movies to continue the tradition...
