    I am just waiting for them to announce Idris Elba or Denzel Washington next lol This cast is just too damn perfect!

    ...I wish Marvel could've gotten to Viola Davis before DCEU :/

    I was just thinking that! LOL. They still have 5 more days before filming starts so anything is possible. I'll even settle for cameos.

    Unpopular opinion but I'm glad Viola isn't in it. Nothing against her I think I would just rather see someone more under the radar get a high profile project if they need another seasoned actress.

    Nobody in particular. I just feel like she's a go-to right now and a bit overexposed. Not that her talent doesn't merit her success. But there are a lot of middle aged black actresses who could use a high profile role.

    I couldn't agree with you more. Viola will be OK let some others get some shine. No shade to Viola because she is doing the damn thang.

    Long as Taraji ass stay tf away from this movie, IDC lol.

    And I don't agree about V, only because she was ignored for so long. My respect for her increased after her Oscar snub. I know she's everywhere right now, but personally I think it's about time. She deserves all her just desserts, and it's nice seeing her in roles where she's not putting on an apron. I don't think a couple of seasons of awards now puts V in the category of less deserving. She's older and dark-skinned with Afro-centric features. Shining right now or not, that's still not that popular.

    With all that said it's my desire to have every Black actress other than Taraji, Gabrielle Union, and Sanaa Lathan, in this movie lol. Including Lauryn Hill.

    Lol! Why do you hate Sanaa and Taraji? Just curious! And I agree, Viola has paid her dues. It isn't easy being a dark skinned older BW in Hollyweird so I say bring it for Viola. She has been in the game a long time and worked hard for the roles she did get with little to no recognition due to her melanin. Other actesses coming up can pay their dues like she has. She, Alfre Woodard and a host of other older black actresses have paved the way for the next generation of actresses so I am loving her in the spotlight. She earned it!

    I think actresses like Sanaa and Gabby have a lane specified for them LOL. Thats rude af Im sure, but they're not quality. U knw what kinda movie ur gonna get wit them. The same with Vivica and Regina Hall. Megan Good. I like most of these actresses... but there's Black Hollywood and Black Hollywood Elite/Royalty. CLEARLY BP is royalty LOL.

    Now Taraji REALLY impressed me in Hidden Figures. Truly. So I guess I wouldnt TOTALLY be against her anymore. Hopefully this didnt offend anyone, but Hollywood has A list, B list, and C list actors so I dnt c why I cant think the same for Blk Hollywood. There's levels to this shits all Im saying LOL

    She's such a good actress but I feel like she hasn't had a major breakthrough role yet (atleast I can't think of one) Definitely underrated.

    I get what you are saying. I guess I don't equate Taraji with the above actresses because she has a far greater range as an actress IMO. Her roles have been varied from her start in Baby Boy, to Benjamin Bottom, to now.. I have always been a fan.
