At this point, does Martian Manhunter count as a black character? Has ever been played by a non-black person?

I've been waiting for years to get a decent Martian Manhunter. At first, I thought we'd finally get him with the advent of the DC Cinematic Universe.

Nope.

Let's use token Blackborg, the most boring black character in comics instead.

And now, here comes Legends of Tomorrow. An opportunity to introduce lots of obscure and cool characters to a TV verse that's well-established and trucking along with good quality stuff.

Nah.

Let's put him in Supergirl, a show whose CGI budget looks like it was made by amateur film students. On top of that, let's have him cosplaying Hank Henshaw and give him a black tacticool outfit with no blue on it, no cape, and let's just fuck with the red cross on his chest while we're at it.

Fuck this.

Fuck this.

No, really. Fuck it right in it's J'olly green ass.

it's not hard to find good black superheroes. there's been fucktons of them since at least the 80s, and the ones in the 70s were a bit on the funky side but.. personally i think that only helps
you wanna add a black dude to the justice league? fine. STEEL. put in fuckin' steel. Look at marvel, they're making MAD cash with their armorsuited guy.
oh youre worried he'll look too much like superman? Go ahead and take the one good aspect of Shaqsteel and make him 7 feet tall. you'll have to make him cgi anyway. Have him played by idris elba

I guess writers just do whatever they want with him.
It's kind of cool to have such a blank slate, you can make his human appearance whatever you like.
And when it comes to doing live action adaptations you don't need to worry about the character's race or gender, you can just choose whoever plays him best.

I didn't have patience for Smallville, it irritated the fuck out of me. And the only other version was in a TV pilot not an actual apperance in an ongoing tv series as a regular character. He is a regular here. Not one-off guest star, who won't appear for another season but an actual regular.

I gotta be honest, this was one of the few really surprising twists I've seen in one of the adaptations. I mean having him be disguised as Hank Henshaw was fucking brilliant misdirection due to how it got people wondering what they would do with him due to his relations to the Supers.

>Back when the showrunners were on set to shoot the pilot, the idea to make DEO head Hank the Martian Manhunter was initially floated as a joke.

>"[DC Comics CCO] Geoff Johns, [executive producer] Greg Berlanti and I were saying, 'It's so funny we cast David because he's got those weird ears. Like alien ears,' " Kreisberg says. "I don't remember which one of us said it, but it was like, 'If we were ever going to make a Martian Manhunter show, David would have been the perfect Martian Manhunter.' And Geoff said, 'Well, why can't he be?' We already had it set up that Hank was keeping this bad secret, and then we started thinking about well, what if it was a good secret? You think he's bad but then he turns out to be not only good, but the most good person in the DC universe."

So Geoff Johns' job is literally to sit in the writer's rooms of DC shows and pick out superhero identities for supporting characters. I'm ok with this.
>>
>>78014086
There's no reason why they can't be - they wrote the show for CW and CBS can't do shit about any crossovers. Berlanti was just speculating when said she was on her own.

Until they say on screen that they're not, I'm operating under the assumption that they are. Mostly because I want Kara and Ollie to have their JLU relationship, and I want her and Barry to have a Music Meister crossover.

Johns is DC's Chief Creative Officer. His job is to basically pitch ideas and serve as a living DC encyclopedia and consultant for comics, shows and movies. Considering Johns is basically DC incarnate, with generally batshit crazy but really fun ideas, I wouldn't be surprised if he had a hand in some of the more fun moments we've seen in DC's live action these past couple of years. I'm talking Grodd, King Shark, Killer Croc in SS, Parademons in the BvS nightmare sequence, etc.

Who cares what race he portrays himself. He is fucking green.

In any case, I imagine he is only pretending to be Henshaw to utilize his resources, and the real one will eventually reveal himself.

You mean in this show? They were going to follow through on him being a threat, but Johns asked why don't they just turn it on it's head and reveal him to be a good guy, like J'onn.
