At Last, The First Black Batman

I want to go on record and say I thought Lawrence Fishburn should have been cast as Batman after I saw the movie Event Horizon 14 years ago. Of course his whole zen blowhard kick in the Matrix sequels ruined that idea forever. Also, he sure has fed himself well with all that Matrix money. There’s a lot more Morphius these days is what I’m saying.

Any way, the point is I was calling for a black Batman before black Batman was cool.*

 

*To be fair, Darren Aronofsky envisioned a black, 70’s-style, Batman first in his Year One script. He drove a Lincoln Continental.**

 

**No shit.

Here’s the story.
