Funny how some people refuse to let black actors get cast as white heroes but want them cast a black villains. You know who you are in this thread.

Anyway, Ralph Fiennes for Lex Luthor. Idris Elba for Green Lantern.

Same with Daredevil. I heard no major complaints about Micheal Clarke Duncan.

Well, to be fair, No one complained about Kingpin cause no one really gave two sh*ts about that movie :P

Anyway, I'm fine with Denzel as Lex if he can pull it off.

If this turns out to be true it means that Ben Affleck hates black people. Obviously.

No no no no no no....... If you want to make the movie diverse add a character that has diversity don't change a existing ones nationality/race. I really think Steel would of been awesome to see in MOS somewhere in it possibly in the future.

If you cast Idris Elba to play Batman there won't be much backlash, definitely not as much as Affleck being cast as Batman. I'm personally against race bending but if people like Morgan Freeman, Elba etc. are involved then I don't have any problem about that.

Oh and a big yes to Ralph Fiennes for Lex Luthor and Idris Elba for Green Lantern.

@tazzmission: You know I'm sure if Idris Elba was cast he would be amazing but that wouldn't stop the Internet from bitching about it.
