JASON MOMOA EXCITED TO REPRESENT POLYNESIANS AS AQUAMAN
By Matt D. Wilson
“Whitewashing,” the practice of casting of white actors to play characters who were other ethnicities in the source material, has been a highly controversial Hollywood practice over the past several years. But what about when the reverse happens, and someone who isn’t white is cast to play a character who has long been portrayed as white?
Well, at minimum it can help correct an historic imbalance in superhero comics; in the specific case of Aquaman, it may also make him a lot cooler. The actor who plays Aquaman in DC’s upcoming slate of superhero movies is Jason Momoa, who was born in Hawaii and is of partly Polynesian descent — and Momoa fully intends to embrace his Polynesian heritage in his portrayal of the character.

Tomorrow!!! Storm #4!!! Looks so good!

READ

THIS

BOOK

This book needs every dollar it can get. We asked for Storm to have her own book for years, Marvel delivers, and now by issue 3 its sales were already near the cancellation line. Now I’ve said many times before that you can’t judge sales until you get to issue 4 since it takes three months for retailers to order their books so that’s how far it takes for them to say “Oh that’s how well it’s selling? Well then I better order this many.” But still, the fact that by issue 3 its sells are that low means retailers didn’t have faith in this book, and retailers can be pretty stubborn. So if you want this book to succeed then you need to go and in a great number show them that you want to read this book. 

I’m not kidding at all when I say I’ll be incredibly disappointed by all of you if Storm gets cancelled. And I will express my disappointment in a very vocal, very loud way.

I buy 2 copies of this book at every comic book store I go to. I’m trying man

More details about Disney’s Moana

Walt Disney Animation Studios revealed plans today for Moana, a sweeping, CG-animated comedy-adventure about a spirited teenager on an impossible mission to fulfill her ancestors’ quest. In theaters in late 2016, the film is directed by the renowned filmmaking team of Ron Clements and John Musker (The Little Mermaid, The Princess and the Frog, Aladdin).
In the ancient South Pacific world of Oceania, Moana, a born navigator, sets sail in search of a fabled island. During her incredible journey, she teams up with her hero, the legendary demi-god Maui, to traverse the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous sea creatures, breathtaking underworlds and ancient folklore.
“John and I have partnered on so many films—from The Little Mermaid to Aladdin to The Princess and the Frog,” said Clements. “Creating Moana is one of the great thrills of our career. It’s a big adventure set in this beautiful world of Oceania.”
“Moana is indomitable, passionate and a dreamer with a unique connection to the ocean itself,” Musker said. “She’s the kind of character we all root for, and we can’t wait to introduce her to audiences.”
