I know. The Batman just came out two weeks ago so I shouldn’t be worrying too much about the lack of announcements for a spinoff or a comic book series featuring Kravitz’s iteration of Catwoman…and yet…I’m getting fidgety. Why? Well, I just saw this on Twitter today.
And suddenly I’m getting Finn erasure flashbacks all over again.
Finn, next to Rey, was the most important character in the Sequel Trilogy when The Force Awakens first came out. I mean, he was a stormtrooper who turned good! And there was the possibility of him having the Force too? What isn’t more fascinating than that?!
Instead of continuing to broaden his storyline through novels and a comic book series they gave the spotlight to Poe Dameron who suddenly became far more important than Finn ever would be. He got a 31-issue comic series, a novel detailing his story before he joined the Resistance, and when The Rise of Skywalker came out, he was larger than Finn on the poster, cementing the notion that he was more important than Finn.
Meanwhile, Finn only got two comic books:
The left one was a standalone issue which came out in 2019. That’s four years after The Force Awakens! And then the issue on the right also came out in 2019 but as you can see Finn is now placed behind Poe Dameron because Lucasfilm slowly but surely diminished Finn’s place in the storyline.
It feels like the same thing is happening to Zoe Kravitz’s Catwoman.Continue reading Please DC Comics, Do Not Treat Zoe Kravitz’s Catwoman Like Finn
