>adapting the source material
Yeah, he's an adult and is Iris' brother and Barry's weird adopted sibling thing rather than anything that resembles Wally West.
It's gonna be like Roy on Arrow, basically, but without the flips.
My name is Wally West and I'm the fastest pirate alive. When I was a child, I saw my mother download something impossible. My father went to prison for piracy. Then the bay made me the pirate. To the outside world, I'm just an ordinary drag racer, but secretly I use my isp to pirate movies and find others like me, and one day I'll find out what my mother downloaded and get justice for my father. I am Kid Flash.
I don't mean to sound racist but why are we getting so many blacks in The Flash? I'm not sure if I'll be able to tell them apart.
And you are pretending hair color is a factor when the race is all wrong.
Iris is not full black, the wife could had easily had been white. Wally needs to be white again, fuck this shit.
If you want white Wally go back and read the pre flashpoint comics. Stop whining. Hes half in the comics and with a better writer he could be alot better.
And both him and iris are full black only in the show.
I don't care about the hair color, I'm just saying black people can use hair color if they want
It doesn't really matter if Wally is white it black if he doesn't have any character traits in common either way
>Will eventually find out Barry's secret identity
Who fucking doesn't. Apparently Barry will take his mask off for anyone he isn't currently trying to date. Once they break up 'hey, i'm the Flash"
I know people asked her if she was asian/black because of her mom and she said she was black.
Ive never heard anything about her dad. Proof?
And Iris the character is full black and Candice has never stated otherwise.
Just stuff from the internet, but mixed race people in murrika usually identify with the black side due the one drop rule, they believe that if you can't pass as white you are black, slave mentality i guess.
But she is black, asian and white, there'sno people in africa thar looks like her desu.
She's fine with Flash, though.
Also, she'll break up with him because Barry and Joe went full retard and insisted on not keeping her in on the secret AGAIN, even after what happened with Iris.
I belive shes idenifies as Black because thats what she is she even said her mom was black too.If she was mixed she would have just said so since ppl kept asking. But her reply was always "im black". I trust her more then randoms on the internet.
Race is more overt and directly stated in America.
In places like the UK, Race and Racism are a thing, but it's more implicit, swept under the rug for some races like Black people.
For others though, it's even more vitriolic.
>flash thread focusing on black character
>breaks down into race politics in less than fifty posts
neo-4chan is fucking garbage.
Unlike Oliver, Barry doesn't do anything that could classify him as a vigilante. Everything he does is more "good Samaritan" or "citizen's arrest" on steroids, kind of like Superman.
Hell, he already works for the police. It would probably be a lot better for him to come out to the Captain (get it, cuz the captain's gay and like, oh, well...), he'd probably get a lot more done.
But, then again, if that happened, the cops would be forced to hand Barry over to the CIA, NSA or ARGUS so they can replicate and weaponize his powers. That's why I wouldn't tell anyone.
Is that Lil B
Probably the overwhelming majority.
You're bait's pretty shitty anon.
Mix guy here the reason why lots of mixed people don't call themselves White it's because white people insist that mixed people are "black" therefore "them" but not "us". White people even go as far as to try to lie to themselves and say i quote "you are 100% black" even though im clearly part white, even moreso there are whites in florida that are more TAN and darker than me.
So why would mixed people want to identify with thoes who have made it clear you are not one of them.
Thats why obama call himself "black" because only black people accept him, but whites will not accept him as one of them. Even though we are all americans.
In Europe, they'll call you a nigger, but if you want to say you're white, no one will give a shit about it, really.
But we'll call you a nigger anyway. Especially if it annoys you and after you've visited our tourist shops.
I will gladfully open up a can of whop ass on them
>wait a second what relevant info are you posting, are you just making a post souly to say europeans will call people niggers?
so what, who cares?
>slave mentality i guess
>one drop rule
you have a race of people that have been forced to live by the 'one drop rule' for centuries ONLY to mingle with whites in situations when they could easily, without question pass as a white person, and you dare blame that shit on a black person's supposed 'slave mentality'? triggered as fuck!
the reason why mixed blacks claim their black side is because they are literally the same genetic makeup of an entire group of people in the united states. when whites start identifying this group as white, then you'll see mixed people follow the trend.
fucking go read a history book you dumb motherfucker
His name can still be Kyle Rayner just cast a hispanic actor. No real need to change his name.
Did Simon Baz make it as a thing? Is he really accepted as one of the Earth Lanterns? I haven't been paying attention to GL since around his introduction.
>Did Simon Baz make it as a thing? Is he really accepted as one of the Earth Lanterns? I haven't been paying attention to GL since around his introduction.
He still shows up places, so... I guess?
I'm fine with him being black, as long as they don't fuck up his personality. I don't want any of this "troubled youth from the urban streets" shit shows like to shove in there when they make a character black, I want Wally West.
There's no need for that, there's several anglo latinos. Just make him Spanish or Chilean
>mfw this was all a long con to make a black Flash
This is racist against gingers.
>He develops a sibling rivalry with Barry and their relationship is tense ar first.
That's going to be weird, I am used to Barry being the mentor or almost dad figure but Gustin doesn't sell that not to mention Wally's actor is too old for that.
Still I am hoping for a big bro and little bro type of thing and Iris being a big sis.
> I don't want any of this "troubled youth from the urban streets"
Well Wally was a "troubled youth from the suburbs" in the comics but he was a troubled youth nonetheless since his parents were really fucking toxic, especially his dad so I would be OK with CW Wally being troubled as long as he's not a walking stereotype.
What saved Wally in the comics was Barry and Iris, he pretty much saw them as a second set of parents although that shit wouldn't work in the show.
You can have Joe build his relationship with Wally and Iris and Barry be like his older siblings though, but seeing how Francine was a drug addict and shit he probably is troubled in some way.
And out of those four, two of them were changed primarily because they were recognizable stars. From a studio perspective, if I had the choice of some no name white guy and Will Smith, I'm taking smith every time (unless I also have to take the son).
Also there is Iris and Jimmy. But multiverse so whatever.
Lol more like Kyle Reynoso, but Kyle would be spelled like "Kaiol" or the way his mom would write the word Kyle with Spanish spelling just like those Mexicans who want to name their kids Brian but spell it like "Brayan", or Daisy being "Deysi", or they fucking loved Princess Diana so their daughters are called "Leididi"
So a one off that is forgotten? I'm assuming you are talking about pre nu52 where they mapped out the entire Flash dynasty.
Shouldn't you get back to getting enriched by your new ME friends? Or is it your women's turn right now?
Interesting. I wonder if Judge Dredd would have taken off in the UK had they kept him black.
>He develops a sibling rivalry with Barry and their relationship is tense ar first.
I already dislike him.
Not only is sibling rivalry a tenuous concept at best, but this fuck has never even met barry before. It's not sibling rivalry. It's just some guy being a cunt.
>but without the flips.
We don't know that yet.
I want the flips to come back in style.
>barry disliking someone for no reason
>especially knowing he's joe's son
>Being this racist
For what purpose cu.ck
>race changing to black is fine but race change a role white and it's racist
>bitch and scream in one condition
>fine the other
Nah fuck that hypocritical shit, faggot. Black Wally is not only stupid but pointless and defending shit conditionally when it works for you is disgusting.
>Mother takes child away from his father without telling the father
>father adopts another kid because his dad was framed for murder by a runnyfastman from the future
>adoptive son develops runnyfastman abilities and develops a highly unique relationship with police man adoptive dad
>biological kid comes knocking on biological dad's door on christmas and is welcomed in wholeheartedly by everyone including estranged adoptive brother
>gets butthurt at adoptive brother for something entirely out of his control
I dunno, man. Something tells me the sample size of people who fit this life is rather too slim to justify calling it 'common'.
Except he can help it by putting even a modicum of thought into assessing the situation objectively but he won't.
That's the definition of a shitty, self centered person.
You don't have to be struck by a a bolt of zipzapzoopitybap caused by a protonfloatyfasttube to see that.
So him not liking Baary at first because of an irrational feeling totally means hes the worst person?
Not everyone needs to be kissing Barry's ass when they first meet him.
Nigga, I haven't even seen how their relationship develops yet. But yes. If he immediately gets jealous and lets his butthurt at something barry has nothing to do with cloud his judgment and color his decisions then, while not necessarily making him a bad person, it does make him a self centered, willfully ignorant individual and indicates a worrying lack of self awareness and self restraint.
fucking wally west is pale and ginger, make a decent black character instead of casting white characters with black actors
Fuck off you faggot
Where has irisfu been? I miss her
Flip the races and /polco/ would have been angry about Barry and Iris and they would have given Wally the right to be angry.
Also tumblr would be calling Wally a racist.
You guys are so predictable.
Fuck off lottle co bitches just be crying because NOT MUH shit the way they cried about Iris and Joe when they were announced as being black and now you guys are all over Joe's dick.
>loser side character
>comparable to changing an iconic hero
Yeah good one/ Besides, just because people got over it doesn't mean it wasn't fucking stupid in the first place or are you the kind of person that holds a grudge forever.
In most of what I've read about him he was a major asshole and a cunt to people and I mostly wanted to punch him, but yeah he matures at some point but then he just becomes a bit bland.
I have no problem with him being like that in the CW, him being a jerk is true to comic Wally's personality as long as at some point he grows out of it (which seems like the direction they are going to take) and as long as he show doesn’t give him the reason like Arrow does to Felicity (which it won't).
Let's cast Seth Green as Black Panther while we're fucking at it.
You'd think that after Stan Lee himself said that the racial re-assignment of established characters has gotten out of hand, comic book editors would finally be thinking twice about it, but they're not. Society has gotten so bad that even the most influential comic book creator in history has no voice compared to the social justice movement.
There's nothing wrong with wanting more non-white characters in the comics you make, and if that's the case than go ahead and write about the non-white characters who exist, or create new characters.
Changing the race of a character is stupid though. If they wanted a black Flash character, they should have just made one instead of hijacking one who already exists and is loved by many fans. No-one wants to hear that though. They care just as much about erasing white characters from history as they do about adding non-white characters.
>make a decent black character instead of casting white characters with black actors
>Coming in here hoping to discuss the show
>People are bitching over race
When the show announced that the Wests would be black, why are people still so enraged and actually...surprised. Literally how? Can /pol/ leave?
>Society has gotten so bad that even the most influential comic book creator in history has no voice compared to the social justice movement.
Stan Lee is an irrelevant old man and it's for the best.
There aren't that many right?
They went with black West and it naturally follows that the rest of the family would be black.
Beyond that we just have hawkgirl right?
So West Family+Hawkgirl.
Basically two blacks.
And I say that as a racist.
>Black people can't have red hair
I think it would be interesting to see how people react if they race bended a black character to be another non-white race.
John Stewart becomes Indian.
Vixen, east Asian like Korean.
Luke Cage, Arab.
I'd like to see the shitstorm on that.
As long as the cinematic universe Iris and Wally are white, this will all just be a bad memory that we can laugh about someday.
The cinematic universe is shaping up to be a bomb, and the only teen young adult flash will be the fuccboi who gave up his shitter to get the barry role in the movies.
You people are cunts. No one said shit anything about black canary being made into both a lesbian and retard and worse a suck ass fighter, and mr. fantastic being made into a flaming queen and not even close to his comic book version in terms of abilities and personality.
But OOOOH NO! Wally West is half black half white with nothing else changing the world is ending.
>Still blaming SJW and not the desire for bigger profits.
Do SJW have guns or something? I don't recall them passing any law saying X amount of main characters must be turned black.
There's no evidence that going PC translates into money, but you could make a compelling argument that it's a turnoff to the audience, and there are plenty of examples of people deliberately standing up to PC culture who are rewarded for it.
Is there no evidence? If there is one thing execs are good at is getting statics and milking what they perceive to work.
By going with more PoC you in theory expand your potential audience. After all, casuals won't know about the original race and most of the faithful fans will still watch.
>By going with more PoC you in theory expand your potential audience.
No you don't.
You avoid bad publicity.
South Americans (where CW shows are HUGE, to the point Flash numbers are just below HBO shows) don't like blacks, Europeans aside from british don't need "more blacks" on TV, even the most PC people don't go to see black movies.
This shows are not made to be only american, Dramas? sure, Small indie stuff? sure. But most Hollywood stuff and big budget shows from small channels (crap like smallville or supernatural) are made for the international market. So where are the ASIANS or the middle easterns? Where are the puerto ricans? etc.
There's 3 countries in the world with a population of over 10 million blacks that are part of the "market", USA, Brazil, and Colombia. And blacks in colombia are closer to mexicans than to any black guy in America. No one minds black characters, but put too many blacks on a movie or tv show and people will call it a "black show/movie".
It has more to do with marketing then anything else
movies starring black people would do better internationally if they had they same marketing budget behind them as any other movie
No one really gives a shit about south america or the other self hating latin countries that lionize any inbred fugster as long as she's blonde or has a good blonde dyejob.
They don't even make up a tiny percentage of the viewing public on the planet and they don't produce anything of worth.
Secondly...straight outta compton?
Are you high?
Not even black americans liked that shit.
It's basically a bullshit arthouse film that talks about a form of music that was only popular for a few years.
It's litterally a movie about buddy holly.
I don't even care about another race swap as it makes sense with the Iris race swap. What I am mad about is the fact that this isn't even remotely Wally. Why make Iris's brother Wally, why not do more time shenanigans and have the real Flash II. Based on the description this guy has noting in common with his comic counterpart. It just screams "we need a black superhero". Honestly the most egregious part of the whole casting is how much of a tool/faggot this guy looks.
It's because barry is litterally a boring version of wally.
They can't have TWO wally's there and wally's personality from the comics for the last 20 some odd years is full on leading hero.
He has to be the hip cool black hothead speedster.
Nah, more like blacks have been coerced by media and a chunk of society into hating blacks.
Kind of how the latins and indians hate themselves. Really fucked up way to destroy a society actually.
>and one day I'll find out what my mother downloaded
WALLY! YOU'RE A YOUNG MAN! DON'T DO IT!
They would not the Asians nations hate black people look at what they did to Finn. Get your head out of your ass. The lack of representation is foreign marketing look back to the 70s to early 90s and see how much more black people got before the foreign market was a big deal. They really aren't huge fans of whitey either but its just the lesser evil to them. Seriously Hollywood could give two shits about this stuff behind the scene look at the Sony emails its all to placate people.
Latins spend 99% of their time tracing their heritage back to as many whites as possible.
That's how pathetic and self hating they are.
It's not even as bad as how the indians have an entire goddamend religion based around skin tone. And how that absolute scum gandhi brought that falling out of favor madness back to make himself into some kind of great holyman.
I can honestly go on. But that is quite honestly the pathetic truth.
The chinese actually hate whites more then blacks. Like..really do not like them very much.
Well, africans, don't know how they feel about black americans.
AND if karate kid with will smith's ass baby is any indication, I don't think they hate blacks as much as been touted by hollywood types.
Latins are white you retard, latins are europeans that speak romance languages. You are thinking of mongrel mexicans a.k.a. "latinos". And Indians have a CASTE system based on RACE, not skin, Dravidians are different from a pure parsi, aryan caucasians as oppose to Dravidians.
But after your post i doubt you know what a fucking aryan is.
