Batman Writer David Goyer Speaks on Racial Diversity in Hollywood

You won't believe the outrageous comments the DC movie mogul made this time!!

David Goyer, the edgy bro-sky who writes the Batman movies for DC, as well as Man of Steel, Superman v. Batman, and the upcoming Justice League and Sandman, gave an interview with The Daily Beast today, and you won't believe the outrageous comments he made about diversity in the film industry. After responding to a question about his controversial She-Hulk comments from last year, in which he called the character a "big green porn start that only The Hulk could fuck" and suggested that anyone who's heard of the Martian Manhunter is a virgin, Goyer said that he thinks the world would be a better place if there were more women and people from diverse backgrounds in the film industry. I mean, what is that guy's problem?! He can't go... wait, he said what?

I think the world would be a better place if more filmmakers were either female or came from more diverse backgrounds, because there are too many white male directors.

 

That's... he said something reasonable and non-offensive? No. That can't be true...

I was on the board of the Writer's Guild and that was a big issue for us, sort of the chicken-and-the-egg thing: How do we add more diverse voices, especially when the audience is so diverse? On the last show I was on,Constantine, I was very happy that close to half of our writing staff was either female or not white. That was something that we tried really hard to do. But females and minorities, they're not represented in terms of the aggregate pot of writers and directors. It's not 50/50 in terms of females. It's a real problem.

 

We don't understand what is happening. David Goyer is making sense. Everything we know is wrong!!

Everyone is aware of the problem and wants to amend it... Nicole Perlman worked on Guardians of the Galaxy... Look, at least there's a Wonder Woman movie going into production. There's a Black Panther movie that's coming. At least there's a Captain Marvel. That is some form of progress.

 

...

It's not enough progress, but it's something.

 

Who are you, and what have you done with the real David Goyer?!
