Could Superman Be Black? Movie Franchises We Want To See In Color

Recently, Idrid Elba showed up to DJ a party dressed as Superman. He looked so good in the suit, fans immediately started petitioning Hollywood to make a new movie for their favorite hunk. We think that’s a great idea and here are more famous movie franchises we’d like to see in color.

Terry Crews as Rambo

Three 90-minute movies featuring Terry Crews in a headband and no shirt? Yes please.

Chewitel Ejiofor as James Bond

Can’t you just hear him saying “Bond, James Bond”?

Donald Glover as Spiderman

This idea has been circulating for a while. Donald actually campaigned to be the next Spiderman. In response, Marvel introduced Miles Morales: half black and half Hispanic young man who becomes the next Spiderman in the Ultimate Comics: Spider-Man.

But we’ve been waiting for a while and there’s no word of a black Spider Man in the works. Get to it Marvel! We’re getting impatient.

Don Cheadle as Captain Planet

Have you seen these hilarious spoofs? We think it’s long past time to turn these funny short videos into a full-length action comedy.

Porsha Stewart as Rapunzel

Your girl loves those 24-inch tracks. We think she needs to go ahead and embrace her inner princess and do a live-action version of Tangled.

Isaiah Mustafah as Rocky

We don’t know if the brother can fight, but we do know that he looks great with his shirt off so he’s got our vote…

Jessie Williams as Captain America

Honestly, we just want to see him get in the suit.

Morgan Freeman and James Earl Jones in Grumpy Old Men

Can you just imagine these too old fools cutting up in a remake in one of the world’s funniest classics? We’re already laughing.

Shemar Moor as GI Joe

Yes, sir.

Michonne in Kill Bill

It is long past time for a female action hero, and we think Danai Gurira is perfect for the role.

Denzel Washington as Green Lantern

This is another project rumored to be in the works. Word on the street is that the folks behind the upcoming movie Batman vs. Superman have approached Denzel Washington to be Green Lantern.

We think Denzel is ideal for the role. But we think this scene-stealing Oscar-winning actor deserves his own movie, not a supporting role.

Idris Elba as Superman

This is the picture that started it all. Do you think Idris Elba is perfect for the role?

Lauren London and Donald Driver in Dirty Dancing

It’s past time for a rebbot of this dance classic. Donald won Dancing with the Stars and we know Lauren can bust a move: Boom! movie cast. Hollywood, let’s get on it.

Pharell as Smokey the Bear

We’re sorry, we couldn’t help it. That hat though…

    The one I really agree with is James Bond, they should expand on a different race for Bond. You can’t change comic book heroes races and Denzal Washington is a little old for GL. As a black female comic book nerd I wouldn’t approve of that at all! Maybe Michael B Jordan could probably play John Stewart (Green Lantern)

  • dingo_egret

    I could see Donald Glover as Spiderman, but as a fan of the character I’d rather they didn’t touch it. Same thing with James Bond, Idres Alba could play him, but let’s not.

    Blacks need their own characters…just like Wesley Snipes did with Blade.

  • Ashstar Noir

    Why don’t Blacks create their own shiiiit. YOu don’t see Asians trying to play White characters. Blacks need fuuuukin imagination. Damn.

    • Mars Sirius

      You fool!!! Where do you think they got the superhero’s from…us that’s who….that “S” symbol is the Kundalini…its all black chemistry & science. You albinos are thieves….

  • ThaVoiceoftheVoiceless

    Denzel Washington is too old to play the role of John Stewart and Superman will never be portrayed by a black actor. Elba is more suited for the GL role although that won’t happen with him being Heimdall in the Marvel universe.
