Wanted: The Poster

This post was originally published on Heroine Content, a feminist and anti-racist movie blog that ran from July 2006 to May 2012.

Let's keep in mind that the character Angelina Jolie plays in Wanted was a woman of color in the comic book.

Via Cinematical:

Who would you have rather seen in this poster?

I still would have liked to have seen Halle Berry and Eminem (sp? * 2) in the lead roles, exactly like they had them in the comic book.

But then, I would have liked keeping the costumes, too.

I don't have the book in front of me, but I recall that the Fox was clearly based on the likeness of a particular actress, to the extent that she probably got paid for the appearance. Why not her?

I find myself in a quandry here.

The comic book was shit.

And yet, the movie also looks to be shit, but for completely different reasons than the comic book.

The movie is probably going to suck because of all the changes they've made from the comic book, and yet, if they hadn't changed anything, it would have been just as bad, just in a different way.

We've entered "Divide by Zero" territory here.

I'm fine with Halle Berry. The othe rname that came into my head was Jada Pinkett Smith.
