    If they really want to be woke, they won't discriminate like that against men who've had abortions.

    Re: Batwoman: They have rebooted her already too. New Batwoman in season two: A black lesbian now. If they really want to be woke, they should have had a black man transition into a transgender lesbian Batwoman.

    Talking about the movies. Seems like there is a new Batman every few years and then they start the whole schtick all over again. Each time it starts with the "origin" story, ad nauseum. Same with Superman, and Spider-man. How many times do we need to see their origin stories?

    Yes. To me, he did not appear as beefy in "Electraglide in Blue."

    And of course there's this Gutfeld classic:

    Not really. I vaguely recall a quick grappling move here and there. But he had various assistants, some of whom were skilled. And I think I recall him coaching his estranged son as he gradually became more involved in the "business."

    They are "rebooting" Kung Fu too, again basically just reusing the name from the old show and not having any other connection as far as I can tell.
    At least the last reboot was more of a century-and-a-half-later sequel, with Carradine playing his own great-grandson, or something.

    And it featured Robert Lansing, and now we're back to the original Equalizer.

    Yeah, and he was, like, Gutfeld size.

    Spin-offs are yet another example of same thing only different, but a good bit of the above are sequel/prequels.
