  • Please stop removing the images of the movie characters. The movie is just as canon as the book is. Plus, all images you added (eg. Zu, Ruby) were fanart as far as I know - and why did you remove that part from Ruby's page stating that the director deliberately sought an Afro-American actress?

    I would appreciate elaboration.

    • You're right. I just don't like the movie as you can see and took this a step too far. And well that quote was related to the movie as well. But I have to disagree with you on the fact that the movie is canon because it's not. It's an adaptation of the book which is the canon source material. There can be a thousand adaptations of the book which is the only canon thing. I won't make any changes related to the movie anymore (If you're still letting me make changes that is) And I'll add back the quote if you haven't already.

    • It's fine, I just wanted an explanation of your edits. I'm not stopping you from editing - you may resume if you want to, no problem. Just don't do those anti-movie edits again.

      I would argue on the canonicity of the movie however. At least in my book, something is canon by default unless it either heavily conflicts the source material (something the movie doesn't really do - it has differences, but not ones on the level of a complete rewrite of the plot or characters) on an extreme extent, or when the copyright holder judges the product as non-canon.

    • I would beg to differ. The movie does heavily contradict the book at several points. Most noticeably through the characters of Ruby and Liam. In the book Ruby's powers are limited to touch which is a very big part of her development and fear. However, in the movie, Ruby doesn't need touch to use her abilities. She also never hesitated to use her powers which is far from book ruby. When it comes to Lee, he's aggressive and demanding towards Ruby. He also has no problem with using his abilities to kill those reds in the end. Book Liam would never kill someone after what went down in Caledonia and if he did he would drown of guilt. These look like extreme changes to me.
