Maybe next we can have a Luke Cage movie starring Batista from the WWE. He's got the build, right? Who cares if he is not the original character's race? Or maybe Wonder Woman starring Brad Pitt. Why should we be stuck in stereotpes? He's pretty enough isn't he?
Political Correctness gone crazy makes for poor casting choices. Anyone remember the last time they tried this? Will Smith cast in the role of a traditionally white character? Wild Wild West? Don't feel bad. No one wants to remember that fiasco. I am all for great minority characters, but not forcing them on the fans by dramatically changing established characters. Simply put what is needed is the creation of more good minority characters! Rather than re-imagine existing characters, this should be a challenge to talented creators to step up and create some outstanding heroes that are as iconic as those currently in vogue.That would be legitimate and encouraging. This type of stunt implies that there is no one out there able to create minority characters of the caliber of the older, established heroes and I don't believe this is true. It's cheap, lazy, insulting on many levels and ultimately not a good idea.
