Speaking of black superheroes... 

Entertainment Weekly published an exclusive interview with Jeff Robinov, president of Warner Bros. Pictures Group, in which they discussed the upcoming Man of Steel movie that opens this summer, June 14.

Of most interest in the interview is Robinov's revelation that this new Superman movie will lay the groundwork for a future slate of big screen adaptations of other DC Comics superheroes.

Robinov wouldn't drop any hints as to what characters are being considered, but added that Zack Snyder (the director of Man of Steel) and Christopher Nolan (the producer) have made a movie that allows for the introduction of other characters into the same universe, and that we should expect to see hints of other potential superhero movies in Man Of Steel, although likely not overtly-so. It might be little things that only those who are intimately familiar with the DC Comics universe will be able to pick up on.

He even goes as far as to say that news on these new characters is imminent:

"We’ll announce something in the next several weeks that will hopefully position the DC characters and the movies we’re going to be making."

Of course, I had to go digging for black superheroes within the DC Comics world who may be primed for big screen adaptations, and who may be on Robinov's short list... or not.

There are several, as fanboys and girls will know, as the below compilation shows, which I found on YouTube, as I went searching for a list of DC Comics' black superheroes.

I'll leave the debate to those who are more familiar than I am; what black DC Comics characters do you hope that Robinov and the WB will consider for big screen adaptations?

The full interview can be found HERE.
