In a repugnant display of white supremacy, Hollywood has cast someone neither black nor Latino to take over the role of Batman in the upcoming films.
Just look at this man.
Look at his eyes.
Look at his skin.
Look at his hair.
Look at his beard.
Robert Pattinson is officially the new Batman.
Warner Bros. has closed a deal for the “Twilight” actor to play the Caped Crusader in “The Batman.”
Matt Reeves’ superhero tentpole hits theaters on June 25, 2021. Variety first reported on May 16 that Pattinson was in negotiations for the part. The studio confirmed on Friday that he had signed a deal.
Pre-production on the Warner Bros.-DC Comics pic is expected to start this summer. No official start date has been set for filming “The Batman.”
Reeves, the filmmaker behind the last two “Planet of the Apes” sequels, assumed “Batman” directing duties from Ben Affleck in January 2017. Reeves will produce “The Batman” with his “Planet of the Apes” collaborator Dylan Clark.
What is Hollywood really saying here?
That blacks and Latinos can’t inherit a fortune from their parents? That they can’t spend years training to become hand-to-hand combat masters? That if they did, they wouldn’t use the money or the skills to fight crime?
It’s all just too racist. If it were about the backstory, they could have just made Batman a MOSLEM oil prince from the Middle East to explain his fortune. That would have been diverse, and it shows you that there are actually ways for them to make Batman diverse — it’s just that they didn’t even try.
Which is weird, really, after putting so much diversity in characters that are supposed to be white.
They’ve been doing this for a long time.
Will Smith in “I Am Legend,” supposed to be white
Samuel Jackson as Nick Fury, supposed to be white
Idris Elba as Heimdall in Thor movies
Dwayne Johnson as Hercules
Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm in that Fantastic Four movie
Halle Berry as Catwoman
Zendaya Coleman as Mary Jane Watson in Spiderman: Homecoming
Will Smith as Agent J in Men in Black
Those are just some examples.
But somehow, it’s okay to have a white Bruce Wayne?
No, Hollywood, this is not okay. This is racism, this is hatred, this is White Supremacy on steroids.
We’ve all had enough of whiteness, and it is time to have a black, Mexican, Islamic or Australian aboriginal Batman. He should also be gay and probably transsexual. After all, the character was lifted directly from furry culture – without giving them any credit – and furry culture is entirely homosexual and nonbinary.
Hopefully, people will protest this movie, in order to show Hollywood that we simply won’t stand for their hetero white supremacist patriarchy any longer.
