Meh. They're assigning her captain marvel 2.

So they already know a certain amount of people won't watch it anyway. 

If it was an "A" level character they would be more conservative.

Is this enough for you?

The director of the upcoming horror film “Candyman” Nia DaCosta on Wednesday released a chilling and beautiful short film that uses some haunting shadow puppet imagery to tell the Candyman legend.

While not a specific trailer or teaser for her upcoming feature that’s produced by Jordan Peele, DaCosta’s “Candyman” short alludes to the hook-wielding character and shows instances of violence against black people that we’ve seen time and again throughout our recent American history.

“CANDYMAN, at the intersection of white violence and black pain, is about unwilling martyrs. The people they were, the symbols we turn them into, the monsters we are told they must have been,” DaCosta said in a tweet along with the video.

The short film first depicts a black man chased and beaten by cops, another young man who is met by an angry lynch mob and a young black boy who is sentenced to the electric chair. It concludes with a painter doing a portrait of a woman who is then tortured and given a hook for a hand by his captors

You can see in her face that she is a very confident idiot.

They want captain marvel to be in the next decade what iron man was in the last.

She has 3 directing credits, I’m not including candyman. Little woods looks like it won quite a few awards. 

A marvel movie seems like a big leap and a little outside her directorial history. 

I don’t know who directed the other marvel movies but this does seem like they’re tapping a fresh up and coming talent ..... who just happens to be a black woman.

Call me crazy, but I predict future reports of massive friction on the set with star Bree Restingbitchface.

BTW, who is producing this film, the WNBA?

The first Captain Marvel had a female co-director Anna Boden who had only a few credits. The movie made over a billion I think Marvel will be fine.

yeah this is just Cami crying woke because he’s sad that he has to read about people getting jobs that could go to white men

 

her candyman is just following the thread of the original movie which cami would know if he were half the horror fan he claims to be

I've only read the first post. Is the director woke cause she's a female? Black? What exactly is being said?

It's not a ridiculous comment based on the fact she is using her career to perpetuate racism. So go fuck yourself, simp.
