Calling All Flash And Wonder Woman Fans.
Over on Comicvine the following organised petition is taking place. I feel any true comic fan, who would like to see a Wonder Woman or Flash movie, and more done with DC characters outside of Batman and Superman will support our cause.
For Injustice Gods Among Us: Game Promotion, they´re holding a tournament of the best DC fighters.
I´m trying to get a large number of comic book fans to vote for Wonder Woman and Flash in the next round to show their popularity. In addition to voting for them in their next battles against Batman and Joker respectively, I am trying to organize a tweeting campaign on their message board, demanding more is done with DC characters outside Batman and Superman.
I´d like to make clear, I love Batman and Superman and have a huge collection of comics from both characters. This isn´t about our favorites or who we think would actually win.
This campaign is about showing us comic book and comic book movie fans support for characters other than Superman and Batman. By tweeting and voting for them, we can show they´re popular enough to hold their own movies, their own graphic novels, animated series or animated features. Wonder Woman especially needs our support, as the official policy of DC is now not to put out anymore animated films with female leads, even though Wonder Woman is now there fourth biggest selling title, and one of the most critically acclaimed features.
I´m pissed off with all DC´s excuses about characters not being relatable, or women can´t be leads in films, and all the other hog wash they use to jive the fans and stay in their insulated little comfort zone of Batman. For Batman fans as well, which includes myself, Rebooting Batman every five years is not going to do great things for the character I can assure you. It will get stale eventually. So why not use some of their other great characters. At the moment on Comicvine we are getting together to organise a time where we will all tweet together on the Injustice Gods Among Us message board, so as to flood the message board with requests from CBM fans - demanding things such as:
"We want a Batman Begins, Man Of Steel like Wonder Woman film"
"We want a Rucka written Earth One Wonder Woman Graphic Novel"
"We want a Wonder Woman/Flash Solo Movie, Animated Series, Graphic Novels Please."
"We want less Superman/Batman Animated Features, More Wonder Woman/Flash/Birds Of Prey etc Please"
If we can try and tweet and share this with people who want DC to get off their ass and do stuff for the rest of their great characters, Wonder Woman and Flash being the first, we should try. It may not be much, but it´s more affective than bitching all the time on this and other sites, having our wishes fall on deaf ears.
Please support the cause, it´s a good one.
Batman and Wonder Woman are next. It is a tall order to get her to win, so if you support this idea please let me know from replies, so we can organise a unified action. Also please share this with people you know agree. If you let me know how many people you´ve got to vote we can at least give Wonder Woman and Flash a fighting chance.
