    Can’t say I share your enthusiasm. I think all the bullspit about race is destroying America (and Hollywood too). It’s fabricated outrage and empty pandering that will not improve one moment of one person’s life. But if everyone else is happy, who am I to ruin a party?

      I think in this case its warranted considering that the actual character from the comics is of Asian descent. It’s a pretty bad look if you ask me.

      In other circumstances, I understand your sentiment. With no source material to pull from, cast whoever you see fit for the role.

      If nothing else, it’ll be nice to have some new get a shot at the big time.

        Yes it certainly doesn’t hurt to cast existing characters accurately. No arguments there! Wonder why they would do such a miscast in the first place… unless it was a publicity stunt set up to make some noise.

        I would think that from the executive perspective that they’re just trying to do whatever possible to make sure the film turns a profit so they go out and hire established that they know will give a solid performance. But then again, is anyone going to a movie to see Ed Skrein? Lol
