@InnerVenom123: Bane is half british and half some form of Latino (it hasn't been told what country he's mother is from). He was born in a fictional island in the Caribbean.
I'm sure there are plenty of white actors who LOOK like Kingpin and could play him.Yes there are actors that look like, but are they all big enough or can they bring more to the role than MCD? That's the point, it's not as simple as just casting someone else who isn't as well suited for the role just because he and the actor are the same race. If there was another actor out there who could've done a better job I would figure that they would've chosen him.
White Character - White Actor
Black Character - Black Actor
Giant Planet Consuming Humanoid - Giant Planet Consuming Humanoid
Hispanic Character - Hispanic Actor
Asian Character - Asian Actor etc.etc.etc.
It's a simple PROVEN formula, Not rocket science. Also as mentioned elsewhere in this very thread Minority characters are underrepresented in superhero films, I have no problems with a Minority playing a Villain at all. Why would anyone? Let's be honest Minorities are "cast" as Villains by white folks every minute of every day. Bane being played by a Hispanic would be better. More Inclusive. and more correct. Seems to me DC fans don't care if their characters are "misrepresented" but new interpretations do not appeal to a large base, Classic interpretations do. Marvel casting Black actors to play white characters is stupid and unnecessary.
I reiterate Heimdall being black was stupid. I read plenty Alt. Get over the need to miscast roles. Vengeance of Bane is Bane's origin and implies Hispanic heritage. Thus my irritation. anyone who has read it want to tell me that Banes is white?Breaking News: being born south of the U.S. border does make one Hispanic/Latino any more than being born in Africa makes one black. Charlize Theron was born in South Africa but has become a naturalized American citizen, so she is, in fact, African-American and Caucasian all at the same time.
Get. Over. The. Hyphenated. Race. Names.
Cuban/African/American/British/Icelandic are nationalities , not races.
Oh and Heimdall being black, so what? When the Prose and Poetic Eddas were written, Caucasian was the only known race to the authors. If they were written today, who says he wouldn't be black?FOR THE LOVE OF GAWD READ! You will learn so much about history and expand your minds beyond all this skin colour crap!
@Amegashita: No, no they weren't. I was just trying to raise the point that today's world, where the Thor movie was made, is different than when then Edda's were written but never mind. Never mind...I understand your point. but it's irrelevant to my argument. If I was adapting the Edda's to film directly at what point and why and how does a characters race change? To what end exactly?
Since I haven't stated my own opinion, I'll just say I agree with Turok on trying to keep the ethnicity of characters true to their original source. It's bad when directors go changing a character's race just so they don't seem like they're being racist by not including an ethnicity in their movie, but then it's just as bad when they go ignoring a characters race.

The way I look at it is how I look at myself. I'm technically white with italian/persian/ and irish in me. Just like Bane is white from his father's side (King Snake) with South American (Santa Prisca) from his mother's side. I never liked it when they gave him this mexican accent like they did when Hector Alozado did in Batman : Mystery of the Batwoman. I always preferred the way Henry Silva (the first actor to voice Bane) did Bane's voice. Where it was basically a man with intelligence in his voice. That's all I really care about. NOW if he came from Russia or something than yea I expect a heavy accent.
In film adaptation and comics as well I think it's gay when they race change. And I'm gonna say, its always making white people every other race, it's rarely ever been the other way(although Bane seemed to white DKR) lets not be stupid. What I think is f'd up is Not only do Whites lose someone but I think it's wrong other races can't get there own character. Why not just add a cool new character into the world via a movie? It might become something awesome in the comic world. And not some cleeshay Mr.Fuji,Supa Brotha shi*. Just get creative while staying true to what fans love.
Lol.... I guess if they made a Dragonball Z movie and made Goku Hispanic I'd be pretty ticked off so I know where you are coming from but.... TDKR is such a great movie though.... in the first Batman movie Harvey Dent was black... lol... wtf? Ya I know, I just enjoy the movies the way they are. If it was like Gears of War, DBZ, or Halo and they screwed it up I'd be pretty pissed so I guess I can understand not making Bane Hispanic like he should be but it was still a great movie though.
