Black Comic Characters are Finally Coming to Life

It’s obvious that the superhero world is not very diverse, but that’s about to change as studies suggest audiences want to see more people of color on the big screen intights. Moviegoers, including comic book cinephiles, are more diverse than ever. A study by the Ralph J. Bunche Center for African American Studies at UCLA claimed that movies with more diverse casts earned more money than those with homogeneous casts.

Comic book and superhero films are only growing in popularity, and audiences are asking filmmakers when they plan on making more superhero films from black comic book characters, of which there are several well-known serials. There have been about 10 films released featuring black superhero leads that grossed a total of 1 billion dollars. It’s time to introduce the new black superheroes you will be seeing on the silver screen in the near future.
