@cascadeking09 said:It doesn't matter to me how long this charater has been around. This movie is about Superman not Perry White. If you think Lawrence Fishburne can play the role then there shouldn't be a problem. You respect his history and yet I don't hear you complaining about him not having brown hair on the top of his head in SR or him saying "GREAT SHADES OF ELVIS!" and being obsessed with Elvis Presley and I don't think there is a single person who would've been so upset by it that they spent the entire time talking about it. There is no need to curse any of that because I disagree so calm down.every single point you brought up in this response has already been brought up and shot down by me or others like a flaming rocket. earlier in the thread. and as to why I care about it. uhmm... let me think... because I f***ing read Superman comics.
@Caligula: I'm sure you wouldn't be saying anything if some unkown actor WHO IS WHITE, BUT LOOKS NOTHING LIKE PERRY had been cast as him. There is nothing wrong with that as long as the role is played right. If he's not the main character and his role isn't any bigger than it was in any of the other superman movies then why are you making this big a deal out of it? You act as if they only did it to have another black character in the movie and maybe you didn't realize the majorly popular character who isn't even portrayed as have any sort of hispanic background.
@cascadeking09: I cant speak for him but I would oh yes I would there is something very wrong with picking some who doesn't look like a character.
But it still happens ALOT, and I rarely ever hear any complaints until the race of a character is changed, even if the actor played that role dead on.
