I have to say, it actually looks pretty decent :)

Cant they just make a movie without blackenising any of the characters?

Black Nik Fury
Black Electro
Black Heimdal
Black Valkyrie Brunhilde
Black Bosley (the last Charlie's Angels remake)
And many more...

Knn, another white to black swap

Can we not have original colour unchanged?

If the film's producers (most probably only whites) want people of colours to be represented, why can't they let “people of colour” create their own main characters in entirely new stories?

Write new stories for them!!!

Of cos not. That would an affront to the new American media sensibilities that have to include a black (or asian or hispanic or latino) and/or LGBT character. Bonus points if the said LGBT character is played by an LGBT actor/actress.

I agree. There are countless examples of successful original movies based on black people.

The fact that not more is made is just economics. Studios are unwilling to risk money on unknown materials and characters.

What I find ironic is that we always hear about people complaining when shows are (or perceived to be) whitewashed. (prime example Ghost in the Shell adaptation starring Scarlett Johansson)

But when the characters are race swapped from the original material, no one bats an eyelid. The same people who are complaining about whitewashing should also be complaining when an unnecessary racial swap takes place. The fact that we do not speak of the hypocrisy of the people complaining about whitewashing in the first place.

Have we seen the actress who plays the female Bond anywhere? I guess the question is - can she act? And will they have a good script for her.

I still think Brosnan is one of the better Bonds but he was severely let down by all the terrible scripts.

Even with Craig, it has been hit and miss - Casino Royale was superb but Quantum was meh. Skyfall was nice cos of the homage. And Spectre was another WTF moment.

I'm not against women acting as spy, or black women in these spy type of roles. But please just no blackenising from already existing film characters.

Melissa McCarthy was fantastic in 2015's Spy

Sony  - f***ing up Marvel franchises since Fantastic Four. Every one of them.

And Far From Home was riding on the End Game wave but suddenly its gone to their heads they can do a proper Spidey movie.

Spiderverse is cool. But again Feige had a hand in that too.

The hubris of Sony...

But I digress.

This is about Charlie’s Angels.
