No, actually, there's no reason to believe you.

A black man just can't be a leading man. Will Smith leads some fairly successful action films. (But!but!but! Will Smith is the only black leading man who will travel! )

A superhero movie can't be headlined a black man. Black Panther becomes the second highest grossing superhero movies of all time.

A superhero movie can't be headlined by a woman. Wonder Woman and Captain Marvel are the 9th and 10th highest grossing superhero movies of all time.

Can't can't can't. Until it can. Oh, that's an exception. Meanwhile all the bombs that were led by white men somehow are always exceptions.
This is an excellent post. Take a bow.
