Afrofuturism is on the Radar once again, and this time we explore its relationship to Cyberpunk, a related Science Fiction genre.
Cyberpunk is a…
The summer of 2011 will be a great one for comic book geeks and sci-fi fans. MARVEL Comics will see there heroes “Captain America and “Thor” with new movies. DC Comics will have their “Green Lantern” on the big screen and DISNEY will see the return of Tron: Legacy.” I will probably see them all at the movie theater and buy them on DVD when they are released.
The only bankable black person that could play a superhero and sell well is Will Smith. I not sure when HANCOCK 2 is coming. But we shouldn’t put our black superhero hopes squarely on Will Smith shoulders alone.
Tyler Perry could make one, but he is not a comic book geek. He makes good comedies and dramas though. I’m glad he is on the scene.
Next summer, like all other summers: the movie screen and TV screen will not have the presence of a black super hero or black sci-fi adventure that our kids can talk about and watch. My son will think that a black man can’t really fly.
That line was in reference to the 1978 motion picture “Superman.” You’ll believe that a man can fly.
Can’t BET, TV ONE, Tyler Perry, Michael Baisden, Tom Joyner, give our kids someone to believe in. Can someone make our kids believe that a black man can fly with a cape next summer?
True. I've heard much about Milestone. Unfortunately the only character to survive that DC experiment was Static Shock, and he's on life support. Hancock worked because of Will Smith. As far a I know there are no black superheroes other that Storm and Black Panther that have a big enough fan base that would warrant a possible movie.
Does amyone remember Meteor Man? LOL!
