Q U E E N S
the realest shit in that whole movie
The backlash against Ridley Scott’s Exodus is gathering momentum. After Noah’s mixed reception earlier this year, more and more people are sick of seeing movies with “whitewashed” casts: White actors representing historical figures who almost certainly were not white.
The latest accusation of Exodus whitewashing relates to someone who technically isn’t even a character: the Sphinx.
The likeliest explanation is that the sculpture in this picture is not the Sphinx, but is in fact a statue of Ramses. This means that it would have been based on actor Joel Edgerton’s face.
Unfortunately, this just makes the whitewashed casting even more blatant, because real statues of Ramses II simply do not look like that. So while Exodus may not have made a “white version” of the Sphinx, Egyptian culture is still being erased and rewritten to fit in with the film’s predominantly white cast of actors.
every black guy in an action movie written by white guys: now that’s what i’m talking about

Some tweets calling Ubisoft out on their bullshit.
The referenced woman assassin is likely Charlotte Corday, the “Angel of Assassination”.
You may have seen this painting of the victim she was guillotined for assassinating, radical journalist Jean-Paul Marat, whom she blamed for fomenting the Revolution’s excessive bloodshed by writing things like “five or six hundred heads cut off would have assured your repose, freedom, and happiness”:
La Mort de Marat, Jacques-Louis David
At her trial, Corday said she killed one man to save 100,000, but Marat’s murder made him a martyr to the post-Revolution ruling classes; 70 years later, after Lincoln’s assassination in 1865, Harper’s Weekly mentioned Corday’s story as part of “a pattern that matches all other assassinations in harming rather than helping the cause for which the act was carried out.”
So not only were her lady lumps inexplicably harder to animate, but her actions and existence sort of invalidates the entire game, and in some small way undercuts the entire franchise’s central conceit.
