Superman Vs. The KKK Gets Greenlight On Film Adaptation

416 Reads

Somehow, in 2017 the race-related hate-crimes are still a thing, so that's why it makes perfect sense to make a film titled 'Superman Vs. The KKK.' The film adaptation will take on real-life events that happened during the making of a 1946 radio show. 

After WWII had ended, The Klu Klux Klan began to grow and became more violent.  This didn't sit well with activist, Stetson Kennedy who vowed to take the giant on. Stetson went undercover and actually joined the Klan in order to learn all their secrets and tactics. 

After collecting all this information, he quickly realized the police would not help him in taking the Klan down. Looking for a way to publicly expose the klan, he turned to a popular radio show centered around Superman. 

He had hoped the radio show would develop a story in which Superman battles the Klan while simultaneously exposing all of their real-life secrets and lingo. 

The radio show agreed to the story and developed a 16-part series titled, "Clan of The Fiery Cross." The radio show subsequently harmed the Klan and their recruitment efforts. 

According to Deadline, Rick Bowers’ young adult novel – Superman Versus The Ku Klux Klan: The True Story of How the Iconic Superhero Battled the Men of Hate – is being produced by Lotus Entertainment and PaperChase Films. 

Producer Marc Rosen says:

“Fighting the forces of evil with brain over brawn, artists taking down bullies and the power of a good piece of content, it’s a real case of truth being cooler than. We’re excited to develop the thriller elements of the film in the vein of The Departed and Mississippi Burning.”

The film does not have a release date yet.
