Can we talk about American Gods? We really have a dark-skin black woman playing a Biblical Queen and a Love Goddess. We have Black People portraying Egyptian Gods. The lead of the show is black. They have West African Gods being portrayed on mainstream media. Seeing black people’s mythology and history represented on screen by black actors is a big thing. People aren’t even aware of nor regard the several figures in Abrahamic religions being African. .
“It looks like Bryan has been talking about the series with former
executive producer, Martha De Laurentiis, who produced two of the Hannibal movies, Hanibal and Red Dragon.
“Fuller explained that given the fact that in just a few months
Laurentiis will regain the rights to the series, returning for Season 4
finally feels like a real possibility. If Hannibal were to come
back, they would have to work with Gaumont Television production
company if they wanted to use the same characters, but Fuller didn’t
think that would be a real issue.
“De Laurentiis and Fuller now work together on American Gods on Starz. Bryan added that given the nature of Hannibal, he felt maybe it would be a better fit for Starz.“
