(Dmytro “Henry” Aleksandrov, Headline USA) James Gunn, the director of Guardians of the Galaxy, was assigned to direct the new movie about Superman, in which the hero’s slogan — Truth, Justice and the American Way — will be restored after DC Comics decided to get rid of the “American Way” and replace it with “A Better Tomorrow” because it wasn’t “inclusive” enough.
The movie that is set to release in 2025 will return to the hero’s roots, the Daily Mail reported.
“Superman: Legacy tells the story of Superman’s journey to reconcile his Kryptonian heritage with his human upbringing as Clark Kent of Smallville, Kansas,” the press release stated, before referencing the new slogan.
“He is the embodiment of truth, justice and the American way, guided by human kindness in a world that sees kindness as old-fashioned.”
Dean Cain, a blacklisted conservative actor who played Superman / Clark Kent on “Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman,” once said that if he were to play Superman today, he wouldn’t be able to say the “American Way” slogan because of the current woke political climate in both the comic book industry and Hollywood.
Now, however, DC Comics and Hollywood decided to restore the original motto after they faced backlash from people for shoving their political views down their throats.
“The Superman motto restoration is a very minor item, but it didn’t happen in a vacuum,” right-wing critic Christian Toto said.
“Hollywood is slowly realizing how off-putting woke theatrics can be, and the Biden economy is making studios pinch pennies in every possible way.”
‘If that means appeasing a huge swath of comic book fans eager for an old-school, all-American Superman, so be it,” he added, citing the low ratings of this year’s Oscar ceremony.
“The message is finally hitting Hollywood. Stop dividing us and take a knee in the culture wars.”
