Ugh... This is probably not going to be good. Hope I am wrong.

We have Steel, Static Shock and JOHN STEWART. Make movies about them!!! They're awesome!!! WB should break away from the trinity from time to time and get down with other superheroes in DC.

I would kill for a John Stewart Green Lantern movie. He is so much cooler than Hal Jordan :)

JJ called his company Bad Robot, but it should be called Bad Reboot...

Though that would still be underselling his "talents"

Yup, he has been given two cherished fan IP's and shit on them. Why oh why did WB sign this hack to such a ridiculous deal?!?!?!

Maybe his projects were still profitable?? All they care for in the end is money.

Hollywood doesn't just produce narratives outside, but inside as well. JJ was the new Messiah, the golden boy who was going to bring upon a new era of fanboy dollars raining on them all.
The fact that that did not happen and over time started siphoning money away is not as strong as that narrative to investors who are out of touch with the real world.

I just heard someone defending Bad Robot. Asked what good stuff they produced, wonder what answer I´ll get. What are your thoughts on a black Superman? Personally I don´t mind since there are precedents in the comic. But judging by the title of the video DJ posted, I bet the decision is unpopular. Which makes me wonder why there was no controversy when Grant Morrison introduced Obamaman :lol:

Because multiverse. You don't touch the main universe, nobody cares.

Almost nobody cares to read or watch it, too, but that's a different issue.

Most AU stories get maybe 20-30% readership that the OU gets. Only if word of mouth carries it could you get another 50% on that later.

Okay, so the reboot would turn Superman black in the main Universe?

Was there ever an obscure black Superman in the main Universe in the comics?

I would absolutely love an Earth-2 movieverse with a black Superman. Only two problems, it would probably be far too ambitious and not sell well enough :(

Also heard someone defend J. J. Abrams, that he is responsible for Lost, Alias, Fringe, Almost Human and Westworld. Never watched any of these shows or know exactly how much he was involved. But this sounds like he is capable. The same guy also defended the Star Trek reboot (which I haven´t seen, either). What do you think?
