Get Out and Moonlight are also doing very well. Hooray!

Of course, these are just exceptions, dontcha know. You can’t generalize from a handful of good movies. It’s better to stick to a rule that’s been proven time and time again: you simply can’t go wrong with a white male lead, as Green Lantern and Lone Ranger and all of Chris Hemsworth’s non-Marvel films have shown.

The real victim here is anyone tied to the toy industry. That overdramatic Green Lantern Animated show got canceled after CGI Green Deadpool didn’t sell enough toys. We’ll never get annother hilariously heavy handed episode where Hal “white Jesus” Jordan explains Love to pink space women or an oh so dramatic episode where Gray Rage Gremlin emotionally abuses his Android girlfriend and she destroys half the universe because “love hurts.” Come on DC, if you don’t get your act together I won’t get to watch a White dude teach aliens how to “behave” in nice 22 min. segments. I can’t watch Doctor Who anymore because it’s too obvious now.

But the Get Out and Moonlight toys are selling really badly.

I bought a whole bunch of the Hidden Figures action figures, but now I can’t find them.

I’ve heard about vaporware but making figurines out of plastics that sublime at room temperature? No doubt they’ll claim that they disintegrated out of severe public disinterest!
