When the first black guy is hired at the theater in Hollywood, we should be able to buy tickets without having to see the movie
The most important thing about the new movies that hit theaters this week is the casting of a new black lead: The first Black character in a film.
The casting is a welcome move, considering that, even before a Black actor was cast in a leading role in the 2016 James Bond film Quantum of Solace, it was rare for a movie to have a Black lead.
The first, however, was Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which had an African American actor play a former Black president in a storyline that centered around an assassination plot.
It’s a milestone, as Black actors continue to play characters of color in movies that often reflect the racialized stories and identities of the characters, as in Guardians of the Galaxy, Captain America 3, and Captain America 4.
While there are many examples of Black characters being used in the films that have come out this week, there’s one in particular that stands out.
In the Guardians of The Galaxy movie, Drax the Destroyer plays the role of Black scientist Dr. Hank McCoy.
In a new trailer, Marvel’s Kevin Feige has revealed that Drax will be playing a Black scientist, as the first Black scientist in a Marvel film.
It makes perfect sense for the movie to include a Black character, especially as the Marvel Cinematic Universe has seen a number of black characters play major roles.
But while the trailer does show Drax, it doesn’t explain how he will be portrayed, and it doesn-t show the character’s origin.
That’s not surprising.
The character of Dr. Phineas Black was created by writer/director Joss Whedon in 1997.
That first iteration of the character had an alien race, but Whedon didn’t realize that the race would be played by a Black man.
When he wrote the sequel to his Avengers series, The Avengers, the character of Black Captain America was also a key element of the story.
While it’s true that the character was created after Whedon’s time as writer and director of the series, the real-life Black scientist who created the character has never been identified.
That explains why the trailer shows Drax and not Dr. Black.
When The Avengers was released in 2011, there was a backlash against the film, particularly in the Black community, after the trailer was released.
In an interview with The Guardian, Dr. James Howard, an African-American professor at the University of Virginia, said that he had “never been in a better position to get to know a Black person.”
“I think the idea that Black people are somehow the most privileged group is a myth, and the notion that we are somehow incapable of doing the right thing and that Black lives don’t matter is simply untrue,” Howard told the newspaper.
But the casting in Guardians was the first major example of the film having a Black leading actor.
The film was released to critical acclaim and box office success, earning over $1.5 billion worldwide.
This year, Disney is releasing Guardians of a different sort: the first film to feature a Black woman.
In Guardians of Galaxy, Draxx the Destroyer will be played with a Black female lead.
But unlike the Drax from Avengers, this woman is played by the talented Black actress Zoe Saldana, who plays Nebula, the Black leader of the Guardians.
Like Dr. Howard, Saldanas was cast to play the Black scientist.
Saldas also played a Black superhero in The Avengers and The Avengers 2, but it wasn’t until The Avengers 3 that she took on the role as Nebula.
Saffron was played by Black actress Jennifer Lawrence.
This is not the first time that a Black actress has played a prominent Black character on screen.
In 2010, the actress Amy Adams was cast as the Black superheroine Katana in the DC comic book Batman: The Animated Series.
The animated series also featured Black superheroines including Black heroine Starfire, Black warrior Bongo, and Black female assassin Talia al Ghul.
She was one of the only Black female superheroes to make it into the DC comics.
Even though Black women make up only 5 percent of the population, they make up nearly 10 percent of those that make up the comic book audience.
There have been numerous Black women in the comics, including Black female characters like Katana, the Flash, Black superhero Catwoman, and a Black hero, Black Lightning.
And, despite the ongoing racialization of our society and our communities, Black female writers and artists are still doing a remarkable job creating and telling stories that reflect the lives of Black people.
But it’s the diversity of the films we see and the stories we tell that really makes them special, and they have the potential to shape our society for generations to come.
Black characters have been part of the cinematic canon for over a century.
But Black women are still only making up a small portion of the superheroes in the Marvel cinematic universe.
In fact, Black
