Yeah everybody in Robin Hood is white because it’s 14th century England and everybody was white, what the fuck are you doing Hollywood? Rhetorical question, I know what you’re doing but it’s dumb as hell and also stop.

I’m assuming it’s a case of needing to make a Robin Hood film or losing the rights to produce further Robin Hood films but without any actual desire to make one. Looks like absolute shit, won’t make any money and it’ll be slaughtered by critics so it just seems pointless otherwise.

10000 years ago

So the overhwelming evidence we have from history doesn't count, but DNA analysis from 10,000 years ago does?

How does that apply to times that we actually have recorded history that shows they were a massive minority?

Just wondering what the issue is? Little John has almost no history before robin hood in any writing. No backstory, no origin, nothing.

If I remember correctly he should be 7 feet tall, which I am okay with him not being so long as he is physically more imposing than Robin, and kicked Robin's ass in their duel at the river with a quarterstaff when Little John tried to mug him.

Fine by me!

Trailer.

 

Looks terrible.

 

Its just a Lord of the Rings type action movie with a Robin Hood theme.

 

No feeling of authenticity or historical time period.

 

 


It's not a Lord of the Rings knockoff with a Robin Hood theme.

It's a Kingsman knockoff with a Robin Hood theme.

It's even got Eggsy playing the lead role.

That's from the 'Robin of Sherwood' TV series of the mid 80s.  I'm not sure that counts as 'always'

we also know that ancient British were actually black.

I did a quick search but the only sources I could find were tabloid BS or outright black supremacist sites.  Do you have a source for this?

Also I must point out that what you posted is an opinion piece lol

I did find this though, I think this coroborates what you said.  It is pretty damming.

For people who hate "White" culture they sure do steal 99.99% of their ideas from it.
