why can't they just stick to the comics? That's what I don't understand. There are a good list of heroes with different ethnicities to choose from. Or here's a thought, come up with new ideas.

Meh.

I'm just of the mind that its comic companies move to make, not the movie companies. If you want to make a change to the character instead of portraying the character faithful to source, make a different movie, you obviously don't want to do a movie about that character. Its change for the sake of change, not for the sake of the movie or for the sake of the character.

To me its 100% about being faithful to your source material. The whole SLJ/Nick Fury thing happened way back when they knew they were finally going to go this route with movies and realized how antiquated the Nick Fury character is. He's anachronism, so they updated him and based him on the guy they would ideally want him portrayed by. The change happened in the comics first, doesn't bug me in the slightest that Movie Nick Fury = Ultimate Nick Fury = Black Nick Fury because its something coming FROM the comics.

Spider-man? Nerdy white kid. Ultimate Spider-man? Even nerdier younger white kid. You want a non-white Spider-man? Go with Spider-man 2099. He was Hispanic, its in character. Or go with Prowler, Hobie Brown is a sorely underused character that Donald Glover could probably pull off well. I just don't buy into changing a character when it goes to the film version. You want a character in a movie, be faithful to the character.

Not that it matters to me, I won't see it either way. Never really liked Spidey to begin with.

What I want is a Puerto Rican Superman, that I would care about.

If he can act the part of a nerd who gets bitten by a spider and then tries to grapple with the realization of his new powers, better than other actors who audition for the job, why not let him have the part? I don't see ethnicity being part of spiderman's identity as such in the blue beetle for instance. I don't think a white person who gets the role would be thrilled that they got the role because they were the second best choice for the role, but they were whiter than the other guy.

look, if ppl today *still* have a prob w/non-caucasian men playing Santa Claus for 30 days outta the year, I can only imagine the chaos which would ensue if a tall, dark-skinned chocolatey nubian guy plays "introverted nerd who becomes extroverted hero & becomes the focus of waite wimmen".........

itll be the End Times, I tells ya. or, at the very least its budget will be cut AND it wont be a successful movie........meaning the next 1 will be back to standard, so as to save the almighty god Cha-CHING.

ok, would you want a white man playing Luke Cage, or a white man playing John Stewart?

Or how about if the Oans are martians instead, because what does it matter where they come from? And I guess it doesn't matter what they look like.
