Re: G.I. Joe / Snake-Eyes film in 2020

Well...it's how I'd do it anyway.... And in so doing, you'd be disrespecting the character's history and his creator. A creator of the same ethnicity you're trying to elevate. A creator who made a deliberately anti-racist choice in creating the character. A choice you would be undoing. In the conte...

Re: G.I. Joe / Snake-Eyes film in 2020

If they wanted to put any thought in that casting, I suppose the case could be since Snake Eyes was an army brat whose father was stationed in Japan, maybe here his dad married a local?

Really as a member of the Jewish faith, I've come to see that if If Israel is Magneto and the Brotherhood of Mutants, then guys like Perlmutter and Netanyahu are Fabian Cortez.

Re: The Boys

Yeah, he fundamental difference between the show is:

Ennis: The comics are parodying superheroes and how stupid they are.

Kripke: The show is parodying celebrity culture and the capitalist-driven veneration of them (with superheroes as a metaphor)
