I great example of movies influencing comics was when the first X-Men came out. Suddenly the team in the comics were wearing leather and the designs were largely influenced by the film. You also saw Wolverines' claws start to come out between his knuckles instead of the more traditional way of on top of them. That may seem like a minor thing, but it really irritated many fans.

They even make fun of the spandex uniforms in one of the movies.

And Joss Whedon's run of Astonishing X-Men had some great bits in it about returning back to it. biggrin.gif



Best run on X-Men ever IMO. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I never made that arguement

take an example, making Hermione black in next Harry Potter serves no practical movie goal if contrast it with mcgregor taking great care to become convincing obi-wan. That is lame. Lame would be replacing Blade with white dude as well. Imeant character that exists aalready.

But how do your examples fit here? I admit I'm far less informed about this stuff than most of you, but my general understanding was what JRM said above -- the female Thor is a different character, etc. So it's a little different (actually, a lot different) than using a different actor/actress to play a particular role than in the preceding film.

It seems a better analogy to the broader discussion would be if they cast a black kid as some minor Hogwarts student whose ancestry is not specified in the books nor particularly relevant to the character's role in the narrative, and people got all bent out of shape because casting a "random" black actress in the role evidenced and "agenda".


The Kenobi example also seems completely inapt. There, for reasons internal to the narrative, you're portraying the exact same character when he's 50-60 years younger than in the previous film. Completely different situation.


I happened to find MacGregor's performance pretty lame and never really "bought" him as the same person as Gielgud. Intellectually I understood that they were playing the same character at different ages, but the experiences of watching them never really connected. But that's not really germane to the point under discussion . . .

it was Alec Guiness lol
Imo he did fine, dialogues in prequels were bad even Natalie Portaman looked bad. Anyway something about his relationship with anakin seemed off, not sure if actors were not on the same page or it was the writting.

Of course you're right about Guinness, thanks for correcting. Those old white dudes all rook same to me.

Hermione is being played by a black actress in the stage play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.

 

There aren't any plans to film it, although I suspect Warner Bros will get around to it at some point. When they do, I suspect that they'd be after Emma Watson again.
