especially lovely on the big screen tv

Here on Tumblr I see so many people, rightfully so, demanding more representation of how our world is in Hollywood blockbusters, and superhero films especially. This weekend a film that did that organically and with love and realism at it’s core pushed that ideal onto the big screen, and not very many people went to see it. If you’re not being the change you want to see in the world, you’re failing everyone. Power Rangers is the film we have all been asking for, and it’s done what Marvel and DC outside of television are still struggling with. They put their all into diversity and character driven, beyond face level representation handled with care, but Hollywood will just see that it opens second to other films. It went beyond queer baiting and checking boxes. Don’t let love and hope lose again like it did in November. Bring a friend, bring your children, demand those around you to, in this world that feels increasingly less accepting with films that feel less inclusive to everyone, go support the movie about five completely different people of different skin colors, genders, and sexualities coming together to take on oppression and greed on the same level, pushing toward a better future. The future we all demand, but didn’t show up to support.

I’m so tired of reading posts that goes like as if Supergirl’s version of Superman is the only one that is positive and smiles.

Tyler Hoechlin’s Superman/Clark Kent/Kal-El is not the only one who can smile. Yes, there is a difference between his and Henry Cavill’s versions of the character, one of which is that Cavill’s Superman was still a character in development process, especially in Man of Steel, while Hoechlin’s is already an established Superman by the start of the Supergirl tv series. I think after hearing the latest news about the direction that DC movies are taking from now on, Justice League will also introduce an established Superman on a big screen that learned his lessons after events of two previous movies.

I love both Tyler’s and Henry’s portrayal of Superman. There is no need in comparing and especially sayng that one is better than the other. They both are doing a great job of representing one of the greatest worldwide super heroes of all time in two different media types.

We should be celebrating that we have so much of Superman in our lives now. With classic Superman finally coming back to comics thanks to DC Rebirth, there was no better time in 21st century of being a Superman fan than today.

Long live House of El. Spread love, not hatred. Remember that it’s not an S, but a symbol of hope. Hope that we can unite instead of fighting over which Superman did better and if we don’t fight, we will be stronger together.
