@daredevil21134: Well they specifically made that statement after being asked about Arkham Knight's identity.

^^^ Check this thread for my other points (I'm lazy, and don't feel like repeating myself. :3).

@daredevil21134: They've already stated Arkham Knight is a new character.

@cameron83: To be fair, there is a precedent there. One of the largest and most destructive riots in history was caused by a black man being beaten by white police officers, and said police officers being acquitted of all charges. If Rodney King had been white, there would just be the usual outrage against police brutality. But because Rodney King was black (which is why he was beaten in the first place, so the same situation with a white man is highly improbable), it sparked a race debate in this country. That's a good thing though. It wasn't too long ago where innocent black men were being lynched, and no one gave a damn. The fact that we as a nation care now is a sign of progress. And that's what @hylian refuses to understand. There is a reason why it's a big deal when a white person does something bad to a black person, and isn't as big of a deal when a white person does something bad to another white person. He/she isn't taking historical context into consideration.

I'm not saying that such bias doesn't happen,but acting as if black people have such special treatment and white people are the most unrepresented,oppressed,and persecuted race and that no one cares about them compared to minorities is just asinine to me.

Honestly,I can't say I like it when one race is put before another in ANY scenario.

I cannot even say that every single time a white guy dies that no one cares,but suddenly everyone cares when a black guy dies. Couldn't a person say the inverse or vice versa?

Oh I completely agree.

Just clarifying things a bit.

@jaken7: Was a great write up. Very on point based on what interviews I have read (as far as it aligns with why I have seen developers explain why) as well as generally true too.

Thanks! ^_^

Just wanted to make sure I wasn't looking at it from some crazy, twisted view and making mountains out of mole hills. :3

@jaken7: it's actually not that bad in here. but it is true that pretty much every time a white guy does something bad tp a black guy everyone loses their mind.

Regardless, your comment was extremely ignorant and out of line.

And no one even mentioned race in regards to this subject. You're the one that brought it up! You're fueling the very thing you claim to be condemning.The dude just happened to be black. So what? It would be an outrageous abuse of power and perpetuation of excessive force if it was done to a man of any color.

Previous reports suggested the Iron Man actor wouldn't be back for a 4th solo film.

But in speaking with Entertainment Weekly, Robert Downey Jr. seemed much more open to the idea.

“It’s down to Kevin [Feige, Marvel Studios president] and Ike [Perlmutter, CEO of Marvel Entertainment] and Disney to come to us with what the proposal is, and that’s on us to agree or disagree,” Downey said. “When things are going great, there’s a lot of agreement.

"Right now, this has just been swell, hasn’t it?” he continued, in reference to the upcoming Avengers: The age of Ultron. “This has been a really good one and it feels good and we’re having a good time.

“It’s that thing of: Why give up the belt when it feels like you can barely get jabbed?” he apparently said, before adding, “Most people are saying that right when they get knocked out. The future is, as usual, uncertain."

Thoughts, Viners?

@time: Because Wolverine (the current series) is poorly written. Nightcrawler is not. Being disinterested in a book is not the same as the book being objectively bad (or the "worst" as you put it). I could understand if you said it was your least favorite, but...you didn't.
