I've done a lot of research into the orisha spirits I guess, I don't think they consider themselves god. They have very interesting legends perhaps BP could incorporate them into his mythology. I've seen a bunch of art, superhero type art with them featured in it online.

I'm no expert. But either way the creators can interpret them how they like. Artistic license and all that.

I quite liked Hancock, it was a fun action movie with some deep themes.

It went off the rails a bit after a while, but it wasn't too bad.

Grossed over 600 million as well, Hancock was very successful.

Indeed. Seemed to get some pretty good buzz as well. Surprising that it never got a sequel.

I hope it's OK to mention Meteor Man here. I feel like seeing that some time.

They Murked the Handcock story so bad that they could not come up with a feasible story For a sequel...

The only way that Hancock 2 would go is reveal other super powered beings. Hancock was good until literally the one hour mark when the whole reveal happened. It also lacked a solid villain.

Hancock had the worst villains I've ever seen grace a screen.

I don't mean spirits like how we often envision them with no physical presence and limited power. In the stories I've read they sound like Gods. They were probably refered as that cause Africans that were forced here to the Americas . Hid their old beliefs by calling them saints and spirits.

Hancock got lost half way through, I agree totally.

I think there's room for a sequel, whether you renege on the 'last of their kind' thing, or if you start to deal with Hybrid children with "all the strengths and none of the weaknesses," or a "lex luthor" type who knows all about them and hunts them and pwns them utterly.

I like that the Orisha don't call themselves gods, even though they serve the same roles as gods of other pantheons. I always found it a bit weird that just because you're a super powerful being you get called a god. I wouldn't put them into BP's mythos, I think they stand better on their own. Oya as the protagonist is really awesome.

Cool Re: Black Superheroes Movies - Part 3

I always thought the characters from the 1994 movie, "A Low Down Dirty Shame", Shame and Peaches played by Keenen Ivory Wayans and Jada Pinkett-Smith, could be sequel inspiring characters....
