What would you like to see more of in sci-fi, fantasy and horror? Be as general or specific as you want. Don’t worry about sales, demographics, marketing, or anything else. Just tell us what you would love to see.
Here is my list . . .
1. Amanda Waller in a Batman film directed by Chris Nolan. I’m not much of a comic book person, but even reading about Amanda Waller (aka The Wall) makes me want to see her brought to life onscreen. Her status as a Bad Ass Normal would make her a perfect fit for Nolan’s grittier, less four-color version of Gotham-verse.
2. Healthy, well-adjusted lesbian relationships (that don’t end with this). Extra credit for including a beautiful, intelligent trans woman who is not “just confused” in said lesbian relationship (aka fan service for me). Even more bonus points for healthy kink.
4. A fantasy setting dominated by people of color that is not written by Ursula K. LeGuin. Avatar: The Last Airbender was a step in the right direction. Can we get a little more of that, please? While Africa is an obvious and vastly underused choice, I’d love to see more things based off Indian and Native American cultures as well. IOW, brown people dominating shit.
What are yours?
