With the rumored casting of Zendaya as Mary Jane Watson in the Spider-Man's Marvel Cinematic Universe and the split responses across the web, this week Londyn, co-host Mason Booker and guest Shadow Adam discuss the role of diversity in comic books and comic book media. From real life castings such as Will Smith's Deadshot in the latest DCEU film 'Suicide Squad' to hypothetical diversity and cultural changes such as Batman not being portrayed by a Caucasian male, we tackle the question of whether or not our favorite characters' personas in this mythology would change if their ethnicity changed as well. Join us this week for a thought provoking talk as we ask ourselves when it comes to diversity in this media, is life imitating art or is the art just reflecting our true society? All on this super deep episode of History of the Batman with Londyn! Presented by Meltdown Comics!
