    True, I suppose movies aren't on the top of things they worry about. I'd feel annoyed about it if I was in that position though

    I had no idea that happened. Maybe the film industry there doesn't get along with the government

    That is what is soo bad, I honestly cannot believe there wasn't more outcry over this
    Well when you take into consideration that the Chinese government was messaging to it's citizens a year or two ago to avoid black people and places where they may live. I wish I had exact link, but I'm not the most savvy person with tech. I find it just ludicrous that a nation that wants to have working relationship with all of Africa can be this way towards black people.

    Working? More like exploit Africa for its resources. Just like numerous countries have done throughout the course of history.

    Unless I missed a big announcement, no. The only thing in terms of news regarding the villain is that Tenoch Huerta has been cast as either the villain or a villain but that was reported months ago.

    We could find out but Box Office Mojo got all pay wall happy.

    I would suspect it did have a showing in some Asian countries.

    It should be NOTED-The Rock does not have issues with movies showing in China EXCEPT one.

    The only Rock movie that has not shown in China is the movie he did with Kevin Hart-Central Intelligence.

    China has been used to justify NOT greenlighting black movies. While they will say it's the international market-it's really China.

    Also if you look at some of the box office for certain white actors (Adam Sandler and Ben Stiller), if it was not for the overseas market a LOT of white actors would have box office bombs.

    Meanwhile our black actors don't have that issue. A Kevin Hart movie does not need China nor does Tyler Perry.

    Man, this is so crazy; because it's not like they worry about the American market when they make Ip Man 8: Chinese Kung Fu beats the World they make it for the Chinese market.

    Not only that but they decry racism if a Chinese person is a villain in an American movie; nevertheless, the only thing we can do is vote with our dollars.

    No they don't. Hollywood is still completely and utterly driven by money. They don't care about morality just Pr/profit. Not diverity just the bottom line. Disney/Marvel is no different despite the quality of their products. Pander to the people with money while at the same time not caring about the quality of the images of those people that they're putting in there to cash in. Asian Stereotypes (Not talking Shangchi) and movies that dont need their lead protagonists.

    Before Anthony Mackie became a lead character and now company line totter he spoke about the problem of marvel not hiring enough minority creators/camera men/employees ect unless it was a targeted project like Black Panther was or ShangChi is.

    I love the product so much that i wish they would prove otherwise but the continually prove that they are still the same Hollywood its alway been. Now they just realize that minorities have money too and are willing to pander to get it. Things like killing characters to project some idea of solidarity with a fragile black grief for positive PR.

    Or pander with a black clark kent while Mr Terrific, Cyborg, and Vixen sit idle.

    Hollywood is gonna Hollywood as proven by the last Oscars
