*disbelief* These morons first thought they could cast Halle Barre as Catwoman in the Catwoman movie and ignore the fact that even most people that aren't comic fans know where Catwoman comes from just know that Catwoman ain't black and now they are making a Green Lantern movie.......

like "The Mask"!!!! With the guy from "School of Rock" in it!!!!

*wants to die.....now*

what's so wrong about Halle Berry being catwoman? Remember Eartha Kitt? She was one of the first to play catwoman... It shouldn't be about skincolor, but about how you play the role...And I think they're saying this movie isn't even necessarily connected to Batman and the comic. They'll have a different catwoman for that

But I agree with the thing about the Green Lantern. I love the Green Lantern, and they're so gonna screw him up >___

but....Catwoman....I mean...even though she has her own series...she started out in Batman. As kinda like an Aeon Flux type thing...like friend sometimes and enemy sometimes...

but then I've been "away" for years. Is the Catwoman in the Catwoman series black or something?

And wasn't Eartha the one in the 60's? She was white I thought...

Eartha was mixed(like meself~!) ^_^ It's pretty obviously cause she's preeeetty tan...but not really dark.

I have no clue if the Catwoman in the original series was black... I myself too have been away from the comicbook scene for awhile, so my memory is all iffy and everything >_

Why is this a big thing? That seems prejudice. Why can't she be black? As far as you know she was supposed to be black in the comic book and before they published it they said 'no we can't have her black' b/c they were prejudice back then, when these comics first came out. Maybe not Halle Berry tho... >_

Well usually to me it isn't such a big thing but I'm one of a lot of people that grew up with a white Catwoman. To us, anything other than that isn't canon, just like seeing "what's his face" from "School of Rock" as a Green Lantern...any Green Lantern is completely outrageous....

If there were made a live action version of Yu-Gi-Oh, would you be steamed if Yugi were played by Ice-T or Nelly?

No I wouldn't. If they played the part, acted out just like the character, that'd be rad! But they most likely wouldn't since Yugi is a KID. I'd actually not care b/c it's JUST acting and I don't think acting should be based on skin color. If you want to talk about the unfairness, talk about how her personality doesn't fit the part or something to that extent. If you don't want to see the movie don't but bashing it for the simple reason they are letting a black female play and white female's part.. I'm sorry that just sounds prejudice.

cat woman
The first catwoman was a black lady :p She looked kinda white because it was the 60's and there was still a lot of stuff going on around then about the different skin colors {I refuse to call them different races, there is only one human race}. I believe she paved the way for other black actors/actresses, because around that time is when Uhura was added to the crew of Star Trek and she was black also. As long as they stick to the Green Lantern comics, I'm fine with it. They already screwed up every other comic book turned movie that they have made so far. How could they have made a catwoman movie? There isn't anything to her story really, everything that she is, was discovered in the Batman comic book.

Much Hope and Many Blessings! =^_^=
