    While I'd prefer that as well, maybe if this one does well other non-race swapped/PoC characters will get movies too.

    But for now, this is what we're getting and it doesn't have to be and either/or situation. We can have white Superman in continuity movies and black Superman out of continuity movies. And Static, Steel, Black Lightning, Bronze Tiger, Cyborg, Icon, Vixen, Nubia movies.

    Is the idea that people have that this movie existing prevents a PoC movie or white Superman movie from being greenlit, produced and released? Because I don't think that's the case.

Isn't there a female-led Plastic Man movie in development too now? It does kind of feel like a gimmick and I wish they'd stop trying to chase that Marvel dough and failing at it, but maybe this strategy could finally work for them.
    I think their plan was "Look, the MCU made a billion dollars with Black Panther! Quick, do we have a comparable character like that? Fuck it, let's just make Superman a black guy!"

    I'm not being cheeky either, I truly believe the suits at WB are that braindead that their thoughts are that shallow and cringey.

    Nah - Vixen isn't a known name like Superman. You're thinking that trying to capture Black Panther's success would involve them trying to push their POC characters, but WB is too lazy and creatively bankrupt for that. Changing Superman's race, now that's the success to catching up to Black Panther! Or so WB thinks...

    The only surprise in any of this is that it's apparently not going to be set in the DCEU. I honestly would've bet that it would be.

    Black panther wasn’t a known name until they made it one

    Black Superman is no shortcut to a black panther type film, I think they are experimenting with somthing like they did with Joker

    Sure, Black Panther wasn't a known name - but the decision to go through with a Black Panther movie came from Disney and Marvel Studios executives, not Warner Brothers. And for all the faults I could level at Disney and Marvel Studios, the past decade has really proven that they're far smarter, wiser, and better at this thing called "planning" than their WB counterparts.

    You might think that they're just experimenting here like they did with Joker. You might think that this isn't just a move to chase Marvel's success with Black Panther. But you also give them far, far, FAR more credit than I'm willing to give them. I think they lucked into Nolan and The Dark Knight trilogy, they lucked into Phillps and the Joker movie, and they've seemed to luck into Reeves and The Batman. While the DCEU shows what we get when they don't luck into a great creative and make all their own decisions - mostly they chase after the MCU with little success.

    I just wish that one day they'll luck into a fun Superman movie...

    Officially? No clue. Unofficially? Safe bet they'll tease it at Fandome.

    Yeah, I'd say it's a safe bet. They're pretty much done with the latest MK game.

    I wonder if Injustice 3 will be next gen console exclusive. Itís still ridiculously hard to find a PS5 and reports say that it will continue to be scarce until at least mid 2022.

    But if they announce Injustice this year it may not be released until 2023.

    I just hope Blue Beetle makes the roster again.

    With his movie coming soon, he most likely will. For that reason I also fully expect Static and Zatanna to be playable. Though current rumors say were getting Marvel vs DC... don’t know if Jaime would make the list for a game like that considering you’d have to split between the two companies
