I could really care less about his his skin color. I would have complained if if Vin Diesel, Bruce Willis, Ice-T, Mr. T or any other meat head you can think of. I know comics aren't realistic, but it drives me a little crazy someone who met real-life editors. Editors don't get to play in the field, they spend late nights yelling at writers and live on coffee and eat vending machine food and whatever can be delivered at odd hours. Perry is the annoying, cranky, demanding father, not the fit uncle who will let you ride on his motorcycle as long your mother doesn't find out.

No, that would be Amanda Waller played by Angela Basset. You know, the only good thing in the Green Lantern movie.

Sure, why not. Imagine what would happen if they made a black comic book character white, though.
this I would pay to see the reaction to.

I wrote about this briefly in a blog I did about changing character race. We already know what the reaction would be which is why it'll never happen.

Keep in mind there is no equality in representation in comics in the first place. Doing something like making Storm white would be a step backwards. If it were even on all side, you could take a piece here, there, but one section is a little more developed than another. There is no arguing that. Plus, have you guys seen LF's role in Predators?? OMG

That...that happens like all the time. Maybe not "comic book character" but "character?" Oh yeah. Non-white characters get portrayed by white actors on the silver screen. And when this happens, people are usually rightfully upset because non-white actors and actresses are so underrepresented in the industry. Which is a shame.
Prince of Persia, The Last Airbender, John Wayne playing Ghangis Khan...yeah, that never happened.

Like I said I'm not in favor of changing any comicbook characters ethnicity just for the sake of appearing diverse. Merely pointing out the outrage it would cause should the standard White character to Black character roles be reversed. I also mentioned (might of been a different diversity thread) had these companies started out creating more diverse characters to begin with they wouldn't need to change the races of established characters now. And I agree, one side is more developed, but simply swapping one race for another does nothing to develop the lingering section. Whats needed are original, new, innovative, ethnically diverse characters. And I'm a fan of LF. Deep Cover was the first movie I saw him in and he was a beast. I also liked his character in Boyz in Da Hood.

I prefer expanding total number of characters to introduce more diversity but I will defend the "different portrayal" approach as it can lead to some good and interesting performances. I think Sam Jackson is great as Nick Fury and Michael Clarke Duncan was the only good thing about Daredevil. Did it really "improve" those characters to make them black? No, but it did open up the pool of potential actors to not worry about it, which led to some good performances.  
 
Could they have found somebody who was white who gave performances that were just as good? Probably yes, but I liked these ones and I like that the industry was open (for once) to introducing them. 
 
Oh, and sometimes even the "new characters" diversity solution pisses people off when it comes time to deciding team book rosters. I still remember the internet sh** storm of the "minori-team" rants for the Justice League cartoon. Oh noes, they opted for John Stewart and Hawk Girl! Super heroes are ruined forever!

Agreed. If its okay to change Spiderman's ethnicity then it should be equally okay to change Blade's. But just for the record I'm not a fan of changing any major comicbook characters race. In my opinion a CB characters look is the single most important aspect.

I agree.

I think it depends on format too. Like, what works best for what you're trying to do? If you're trying to make a new ongoing, new character all the way. If you're trying to fill a movie cast, well there's only so much screen time to go around, so it might be better to opt for some characters over others or do the "new portrayal" route. Whatever way you go, somebody's not gonna be happy.

Thats kind of more of the same though. My point is that Perry White could have easily been black from the very beginning. (Insert character name here) could have been (insert ethnicity here) from the beginning. But since they weren't all these recent attempts to rectify that situation seem disingenuous in my opinion.

Or Maaaaaaaybe Laurence was the actor that walked in there and blew everyone away. I was reading recently where Idris Elba just won himself a part that was originally written for Brad Pitt.

As a comic reader I have no idea who Perry White is, I doubt the general public does as well, so I'm more than happy to label this as a "non issue" and move on. It'd be like recreating a scene from a comic and having the cashier right handed instead of left.

Well they did change Blade. (well they made him more American lol) though for most, Blade being born in England wasn't really a defining aspect of the character. At least generally. For all I know, there might be a lot of Blade fans who are pissed that changed. So anyway does that mean for a character whose race (or any characteristic) defines them and is one big reason why they have fans, changing that is the same as changing a character whose race is negligible and no one really strictly likes the character for? Why does it have to be equally applicable when we have this amazing ability to weigh up and recognize the differences between things? Its a lot more complicated sure and it speaks of human nature and our biology. Most people find it almost more automatic to identify with things that are similar to them, and so even though Spider-man's race isn't written as being a defining feature for the character, his everyman, and relatable aspect is, and for many, many people that means his skin color. So that would be a much tougher sell maybe, as opposed to Norrin Radd whose skin color doesn't really matter and I'd say doesn't define his character and is changed to Silver anyway. So no one really knows what color he was or might have been and for most it wouldn't matter since the movie would have him silver the entire time. Storm's race on the other hand defines her, I mean, not just from writers point of view, but in the eyes of many fans, fans with money. Not that I disagree with your example. Just the equally bit I suppose. Its like how Wonder Woman's gender is more important that say, Marrow.

Its very possible. At least for Kenneth Branagh. He literally casts color blind. So if he though a white women best represented what he considered to be the Storm character's defining aspects, then he would weather the storm (aha I am lame) and cast a white actress... but... like I was saying with my other post, he would probably consider her visual look a defining aspect. Since only until recently thats how comic writers, wrote characters of color. So its a bit hard to think of a comic character who is not white but whose race, and/or color didn't in some way shape, define or form them, because usually writers were really sensitive with that. Its actually easier to look at characters who are aliens and or mutants. Or say take something like gender. Thor girl? Her gender doesn't define the character so much maybe? Character is still quite undeveloped. They could probably make her Thor Boy, an alien from a planet Thor saved who was fascinated so much by Thor she adopted his look and name. That right there is a defining aspect of the character. So Thor boy could be blue, green, black of Irish.  
 
They could change his gender too, if the actress was good enough and the person casting the role didn't think his (the character) gender defining the character. Bob Dylan was okay with Cate Blanchett playing him. Her casting was genius. For that part of his life, look, etc people involved with that decision thought she was the best. The difference is with us the individual, and then the larger majority. Our discretion in deciding what's important to us individually and then the general as in risk involved with creative discretion, deciding what are defining aspects of a character and so what can be changed and or, what should not be.

Source: EW

Great Caesar's Ghost! While everyone from Hugh Laurie to Ed Harris has been suggested for the role, Zack Snyder's 'Man of Steel' has gone with an unconventional (but excellent choice) for the role of The Daily Planet's editor-in-chief Perry White'The Matrix' star Laurence Fishburne.

 

At this point, no one should be at all surprised that an iconic supporting role has been changed to reflect modern diversity (let's face it - comics are chock full o' white people), but we're sure that won't stop people from complaining about it anyway. However, let's really run this down and examine why Fishburne might be a good choice for the role. One, Perry White is essentially "the irascible boss" stereotype, a trope prevalent in all forms of media (see: J Jonah Jameson). If there's anyone out there who can play a stern, gruff, and intimidating boss character, it's Fishburne. From his recent stint as the head of 'CSI' to playing the man-behind-the-man in the'Matrix' trilogy, he's shown that he's not someone you want to mess with, and that he demands results. Two, all you really need for a great Perry White is the ability to huff and puff and then be surprised when everything works out. Toss in his catchphrase and a scene where he's chewing out some reporters, and you're good to go.

 

Previously played by Jackie Cooper in the original films, and then Frank Langella in the recent Bryan Singer reboot/homage, Fishburne will take over the role for WB's new revamp of the franchise in what will most likely be nothing more than an extended cameo. So, relax fanboys. There are probably much worse things to worry about (i.e. the director).

And I would like to add, that there was a movie where they changed a black character to white: Spawn. They changed Terry to a white guy.

@oraclex: You know...How many more comic book characters are we going to tolerate being turned black, or blacks being turned white, or indians played by a white man, before we finally get tired of it? What would happen if they suddenly made Spawn White? I imagine the black community would be in an uproar...and I can't say I would blame them...I would be in an uproar right along side them! Spawn is a black man, that is how I grew up and come to recognize Spawn, if I were to wake up one day and see him played by a white man, I would be pretty ticked off. Same as I am upset that Tonto is played by Johnny Depp. Really? An American Indian played by a white man? Was there a shortage of good American Indian actors? I mean, in Batman, they made Harvey Dent black, but then made him white again two movies later.They made Bosley black from Charlies Angels. Now Perry White? I mean come on....there is no reason for this what-so-ever. Makes no sense... What is the fascination with changing the races of all these characters into some other race? Is there something wrong with a character being played by the correct ethnic group? What, was there a shortage of good middle aged white actors to pick from?

Obviously it bothered me, they changed an iconic character for me.
