I am with Laz.  Imagine if they tried to turn Black Panther white.  HOLY SH*T.  The sh*t storm would be seen from the Moon.  Hollywood trying to PC-ize everything is getting very tiresome.  Some are actually asking for the next reboot of Batman to have a black Batman.  Damn, I would burn some sh*t down if they tried that.

Would the title change to White Panther?

How is it that people are so upset with Jamie Foxx as Electro yet nobody cares that the Mandrian is being played by a Ben Kingsley? If we are trying to be purist here, why not cast an Asian man in the role? Personally I don't care what color Electro is in the movie so long as he doesn't wear that lame looking starfish mask, I'm okay with it.

Technically Mandarin is half-chinese so they can get away with the "look"

But I do agree. Bruce Wayne and Peter Parker should remain white as Black Panther and Cage should remain black.

While I do agree that making an iconic character like Superman or Batman a minority would be 'idiotic' why not make supporting characters (Perry White,  Electro) other ethinicities. I say cast the best actors in the roles and the movies will speak for themselves.

technically the Mandrian in the IM universe as it is set is middle eastern. Why? Because the terrorist organization he runs in from the middle east. Thus the character is from the middle east. It is not a huge departure from asian really, and he still looks relatively like the character. His ethnic background is not changed significantly and is done in the context of the story because it flows with the story. There is a PLOT reason he is different. There is no real plot reason to make Dillion black. Sorry.

That is just getting stupid and obvious by Sony. And this is IMHO. It is getting old this hyper PC world Hollywood is trying to become. Especially when they use our favorite comics as medium to do this crap.

Let me put this in another way, what if they make the Black Cat...BLACK? Anyone getting the picture. Stop trying to f*cking appease the racial PC crap and just cast actors that LOOK the part. Giamatti as Rhino and Foxx as Electro. What is next Sony? Going to cast a cool, confident, extroverted character to play Peter Parker...oh wait.

I mean next thing you will see these tards trying to cast Nicholas Cage as Superman....oh wait.

@cinemaman72 -I actually think that is b*llshit as well. mandarin should be Chinese. But I think that Disney and Marvel did not want to piss of China by making the villain a Chinese man.

Yeah that is kinda what I thought Axia. that is why they changed the invading country to N Korea  in RED DAWN. Same reason Axia. Stupid. F*CK CHINA.

 Wow who really cares?  Lazarus your going borderline racist with your comparisons. It's a movie. Live is rough don't let a movie and casting get you so worked up. There aren't any minority groups lining up at Sony and Marvel studios demanding they cast non-Caucasian actors in those roles. The casting director makes those calls with the director and crew making the final decisions.
