I don't know anything about the comics but Ben Mendehlson is awesome.
DC just got started, and they are scraping the bottom of the barrel already?
Again w/ this johnny storm black bullshit? article keeps spelling her name wrong, it's Zatanna.For the role of the magic-using Zantana, a black or hispanic actress is being sought to bring some much-needed diversity to the line-up.
In typical diverse fashion, they're taking a pre-existing name and winging the spelling.
Zatanna doesn't have to be white.
There is nothing really about her or her history that would make more sense if she was white rather than Hispanic or Black.
Esaelp teg eht emutsoc thgir.
yeah, Giovanni Zatara can totally be Hispanic or Black. or, his wife, Sindella, can totally be a magic black woman. Nothing racist about that at all.
shes great, and in alot of good things...
but she does not translate into live action well at all.
the backwards thing, really only works in print. when its words written backwards, so it can be still read. there is no real comparison in live action. playing her audio backwards doesnt work. no one can understand it. and its not natural sounding at all.
and the costume as well. yes its a real stage outfit. but, its looks REALLY silly outside of a stage, or comic. try to fix it, and you just end up with generic goth chick.
if there's a story, it'd be
Amazon.com: Zatanna: Everyday Magic (0761941231945): Paul Dini, Rick; Bolland, Brian (cover) Mays: Books
But that's only cuz Paul Dini wrote it and he has a super hard on for Z, as much as he has for Harley, probably cuz his wife is magician.
and yea, the backwards shit is stupid, worse would be if her catch phrase was hocus pocus, but it's that bad.
