I think as everything builds and grows and you take the temperament of society and what’s happening. I think here in Hollywood, especially with franchises and characters and publicly traded companies that are sensitive to that sort of thing, I think they’re doing a good job. Maybe one day we’ll see a Black Superman. You’re looking at him.”
