The next Superman film will be the first with a Black actor as Kal-El with WB also committed to hiring a Black director.

So instead of taking advantage of the black Supermen from the comics they actually have (Steel, Val-Zod, Calvin Ellis/President Superman), they decide to simply turn Kal-El black? Seems lazy.

Hell, Steel already got his own live-action film back in 1997 starring Shaquille O'Neal. And while not exactly a leading role, Steel was featured in the animated adaptation of Reign of the Supermen. It has been done, it is possible. Sure, the 1997 Steel movie was "eh", but I'm sure that nowadays they can do a better film.

EDIT: let's imagine an scenario where instead of making movies and games with Miles Morales, Marvel instead decided to turn Peter Parker black. How do you think people would react? People would call it "lazy", "low effort", ect. It's the same deal with a black Kal-El.

What I'm trying to say here is that DC has plenty of great black characters (or great characters that just so happen to be black), give THOSE guys a chance in the spotlight. Give to Steel or Val-Zod or Calvin Ellis their chance to be the lead in the silver screen. EXPLORE those characters. Stop ignoring them.

Moving on from Superman, did you know that Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 4 was supposed to be released ten years ago YESTERDAY??

The movie was supposed to be released on May 6th, 2011 but as you all know it was cancelled.
Watched Steve Spielberg's Catch Me If You Can. You know, the one starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks, based on the story of real-life con-artist Frank Abagnale Jr.

Man, that movie was so good!
I know I'm two weeks late but...

Happy 40th anniversary to Raiders of the Lost Ark! Happy 40th anniversary to the Indiana Jones franchise!

Here's the trailer for the Indiana Jones 4K remastered collection.

Happy 5th anniversary, Shin Godzilla!

Happy 20th anniversary, Angelina Jolie's Lara Croft: Tomb Raider!
This deleted scene from Infinity War, thought.

It would be cool for Marvel to release a 40-minute short film or something that explores the birth of Professor Hulk in the MCU, instead of having that character decelopment off-screen.

Moving on from the MCU...

Happy 30th anniversary to Terminator 2: Judgment Day!

Five women accuse actor James Franco of inappropriate or sexually exploitative behavior

James Franco to pay $2.2m in sexual misconduct case
Scarlett Johansson criticises ‘hypersexualisation’ of Black Widow in Iron Man 2 (Actor says her character was ‘talked about like a possession’ in her first appearance in the Marvel film franchise)

The scene she is talking about is this one:

More specifically, she's talking about Tony's dialogue at the end of the clip.

First off, Scarlett Johansson is quoting the line wrong. Tony Stark never said he "wants some", he said that he wants one. By this he means a wife that could kick ass and such. Tony is a guy who always wants something, that always "wants one". Natasha knew Stark's weakness and he exploited it in order to get close to him.

This wasn't about Natasha Romanoff, it was about Tony Stark's flaws and the way in which he allowed himself to be checked by Pepper Potts.

Moving on from that scene, in the article Scarlett Johansson also talks about how Black Widow was kind of lame or underdeveloped (or at least that's what I understood. At various points it looked like Scarlett Johansson didn't really knew how to express herself or get her message across). In which case I have to agree. Overall, Black Widow in the MCU didn't really have a lot going for her other than calming down the Hulk for some reason, at least until Endgame came out and well, you know what happens in that movie. Keep in mind that Black Widow is not supposed to be a one-off or background character, she's part of the core cast of the Avengers; a menber of the original team. I haven't watched the Black Widow film so I don't know if they actually succeded in giving more depth to Black Widow's character or if the movie is a bad as people say it is.

Your character can be sexy/physically attractive and still be interesting, just saying. Then again, maybe I'm giving Scarlett Johansson too much credit.

"But Black Widow did something! Remenber the time she tricked Loki in Avengers 1?" - My dude, if you actually remenbered the movie then you would know that Loki tricked Black Widow, not the other way around. In fact, he manipulated all of S.H.I.E.L.D. Loki was playing 4D chess.

And before any of you brings up Hawkeye, he's gonna have his own TV show soon.
Decided to give M. Night Shyamalan latest movie OLD a shot. This is what I think of it. SPOILERS of course.

Had the opportunity to see the movie Pig starring Nicolas Cage. Phenomenal. GO SEE IT.

2021 is gearing up to be a fantastic year for movies. Lately, a lot of shit movies just kept churning out that it left me exhausted and disillusioned with the sole exception of OLD. M. Night Shyamalan made a fantastic movie that reinvigorated my excitement for upcoming movies.

The ones to look out for is the Green Knight, A Night in Soho, Dune, and The French Dispatch. Three of which are coming out the same day.
So I got around and watched the Captain Marvel film to see what the deal was.

I wouldn't go as far as to call the worst MCU film, but I thought the film was... meh. It was mid-tier at best.

Speaking of the MCU, the first Captain America film is now 10 years old.
