this. I don't even understand why it matters. The characters matter, not their race/skin color.

If it doesn't matter, then there's no reason to change it.

I honestly could care less about Johnny Storm and who plays him as I am more interested as to who they will cast to play Dr. Doom. After the hatchet job they did with him by casting the guy from Nip/ Tuck, I honestly have little faith this movie will be any good after Fox fucked up with the last 2 before it.

I agree somewhat as I didn't have any problems with them casting Alicia Masters as a black woman played by Kerry Washington. I just for the love of god have little faith that Fox won't mess up this new FF movie like they did with its predecessors after the McMahon Doom fiasco and the Galactus fart cloud.

Pandering to be PC. Disingenuous. Just shows a lack of imagination that they can't come up with an original character who happens to be black. Why stop there, make one black, one asian, one Hispanic, and one gay. Otherwise it's not fair.

Alternatively, he could have given the best audition, which is the most likely explanation.

I have no problem with Johnny being black.

What I do have a problem with, is when Marvel eventually turns him black in the comics.

Some sort of slow acting skin coloring disease he caught in the Negative Zone while he was 'dead' or replaced whole out with the Golden Age Human Torch's misplaced 'test' android or etc...

I think the fantastic four should be played by Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippin, Dennis Rodman, and Steve Kerr in a dress

There's really no reason as to why Johnny and/or Sue couldn't be black characters. I had no problem with Heimdall nor with Electro, but for whatever reason I just don't see it here. :smt102

If you guys ever find yourselves in a situation involving an angry black person and go home and reflect on that situation and ask yourselves why black people are so angry, please search and read through this thread. You will understand exactly why black people are so angry.
