I already have a family full of different races and adopted people. I really don't want to see another by-committee Hollywood movie manipulating audiences by using it to buy publicity and then make it the butt of bad jokes in the film. That's all this is.

NO THANKS, Marvel superhero movies and their writers just don't have the chops to do a good job, they are just buying headlines.

I think she's white. There was an article about it the other day.

Instead of getting the reckless, hotheaded, womanizing character changed to black just to pander to a demographic.

I don't care nearly as much about this as Thor, but its still stupid. Just not AS stupid.

To be honest, I don't care about the race or color of the character. I just want to see a good movie. I don't want to believe it's just pandering to the PCs or any of that until I actually get to see the man act the role. That's why this shit upsets me; no one has seen the guy act the role yet but everyone is quick to write it off as "unnecessary race-bending". It's like the dude hasn't even had the chance to act and people are already telling him he won't do a good job because he's black or that he doesn't belong because he's black. That type of shit has been making black people angry for years now.

Black dudes can be reckless, hotheaded womanizing people. So can white dudes. I know enough white dudes who drive like maniacs and skeet and retreat in women. What makes it different?

I see no reason why Johnny Storm can't be black in the film. Now, Heimdall...that was stupid. :P

But for example, Sir Ben Kingsley, an Indian guy is the Mandarin, a Chinese guy. I'm sure there are some people who are bothered by it but no one here is complaining.


I really think Ken Watanabe would have been a better choice as Kinglsey's Mandarin looks like a hand me down bin-Laden mixed with Ali G.

I would've loved to see a Sherman Hemsly J. Jonah Jameson, but, it's too late :cry:

You won't say that once you've seen the movie.

Kingsley is perfect for their take on the character.
