I did go to school for Marine Biology, but the cool thing is… the greatest thing for me is that Polynesians, our gods, Kahoali, Maui, all these water gods, so it’s really cool and a honor to be playing a [water] character. And there’s not too many brown superheroes, so I’m really looking forward to representing the Polynesians, the natives.
My family are some of the greatest water men on earth. I’m not, but I’m going to go train with them. But it’s really an honor just being a Polynesian. And water is the most important thing in this world and we all know it. It’s cool be a part of DC’s universe.
fyi ‘satire’ isn’t just ‘hyperbolic exaggeration of the same shit we usually see with a disclaimer that it’s different.’ There actually has to be, like, an element of condemnation in its thesis.
It’s not ironic if it actively celebrates what it’s condemning.
just wanted to put that out there
Wonder Woman was officially announced this morning, along with Ezra Miller’s casting as Flash, announcement of at least one JLA movie, and one Cyborg movie. They’ve worked hard to include POC in LEADING roles, not just “person who helps and then plays a background role,” and that’s so wonderful and exciting!! I had a LOT of apprehension about the new DCCU films, but I’m feeling mostly confident in them, now. BRING. IT.
