Noticed they cast Idris Elba as The Gunslinger in the upcoming The Dark Tower movie. He's a great actor and, thus far, I haven't got the impression his casting in a role that was originally a white dude was heavily influenced by SJW programming.

Elba is a quality actor. I think he would make a great James Bond.

I'd have just settled for non shit lefty leaning editorial voice.

When did Marvel and DC NOT have "lefty leaning editorial voice"? You must not have read many comic books...


I dunno, Red Sun would be approved by Steve Bannon I imagine. ;)

I don't have a problem with fictional characters changing race or gender if it is done well. Samuel L Jackson makes a lot better Nick Fury than David Hasselhoff ever did.
When they changed the gender of the classic Dr Who villain The Master from male to female I thought it was great, because they slowly built it up and the actress playing the character was superb at portraying a psychotic bitch...



When it comes to Marvel wholesale spamming diversity to pander to the SJW crowd its another story though. That shit needs to be reigned in. If you really want to know the reason why they have been doing that just do a google search for Sana Amanat. ;)
