Well, we've already been told that we only go see Tyler Perry movies, that heroes of color (and women) are only shoehorned into movies and comics in an unnecessary attempt to make them more diverse (whatever that is), and that Black heroes in particular don't have interesting powers and won't draw an audience. What more is there to say?

It’s something that’s easy to take for granted, growing up in the United States as a white male, that my cinematic heroes look like me...It’s something that over the course of these ten years, having a certain amount of power over what type of movies are made and what type of actors we hire, I want everybody to have that feeling. We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
