    Some sites say Marvel did not want Snipes to have 2 marvel characters,
    some sites say he was nixed over that tax incident

    Or is it maybe that the man, who made "A Great and Mighty Walk" about Dr Clarke

    may have written something too Black and too strong for Hollywood, into the scripting?

    Wesley Snipes ain't no threat to Hollywood...


    http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000648/bio .

    This is the first I've heard of any Marvel characters; but why would they be threatened by it? ......he ain't taking those checks home to a sista.

    Blade was the other Marvel character

    I don't know if he sleeps with a black woman a white womaan, a chinese man, a blue crocodile, or a green faced babbon,

    but I do know he spent much time and money in making serious documentaries, about Dr Clarke and Dr Ben, and that he has endorsed and financed the first Black produced and written Anime, with a ATR theme

    Is there a documentary out there regarding dr. ben? Wow. If so, I've missed that one.

    "Anime, with a ATR theme", you say? Cool.... What are the name of these
    projects. I may have heard of them (or maybe not).

    In any event hook me up, Ankhur.

    Whites and other nonblacks have done similar themed-things as well.:10500: My point is....Wesley Snipes poses no threat to the Hollywood machine, so why would they try to stop him based on doing what they do and espousing what they espouse??

    there was mention of an African brother getting the role

    I know that since the old kung fu movies of the 70s they can make a non look like a master but does the brother have skills?

    "It's Africa-based sci-fi," explained co-author Brother G. "The Elder race is based on traditions of many African peoples that there was a creation before this creation, a world before this world that was destroyed. And the Zulu Mech is based on African practices involving spiritual 'totems' or power items, ancestor communication, and tapping into the power of the Earth. There are also heavy doses of nano-technolgy, advanced metallurgy, and other high-tech elements. I love the Transformers and Terminator, etc., but it's time we had epics from another perspective. This is truly sci-fi for the age of Obama!"
