@joshmightbe: Nope. Nothing Wrong. It makes perfect sense. Sam is the perfect person to be the next captain America. Captain America has been basically his mentor.

@farkam @agent9149 I'm you.

What are they choosing him for and not his acting skills? I wouldn't be weirded out by a black flash. There have been multiple flashes, I would have no problems with a black or any race flash. Flash not being white, doesn't take away anything from his character. Did you feel weirded out when Tom Hardy, a white English actor, played Bane, a Latin-Caribbean character?

You wouldn't, but I think if everyone was completely honest with themselves they would find that making white characters suddenly turn black just isn't fitting. Characters should, for the most part, fit their comic-book counterparts and this is something that we can all agree on.

So using your own race as a defense for such accusations is retarded.

Not really. You see, a normal white person probably wont say the things I have been saying for fear of appearing prejudice(a term that has been floating around this thread). I, on the other hand, have a much smaller chance of being prejudice against Jordan because we are the same exact race. I probably have less of a negative bias. My words are coming from the heart. Thanks for the feedback and correction. Tsk Tsk.

I think anyone who wasn't prejudice would have no problems with a white comic book character being played by a non-white actor. And you didn't answer my last question: Did you feel weirded out when Tom Hardy, a white English actor, played Bane, a Latin-Caribbean character?

@agent9149 I'm on you.

Well that's sad to hear that race would be the only thing stopping you from loving a version of a character.

No it's not. We expect these characters to look how we imagined them to look. It's their job to make it as close to the general person's imagination as possible. They are choosing to cast a black guy, not based on acting skill, but on something else. Anyone is aloud to feel disappointed about this without being racist or whatever.(I'm not saying that's what you called me). Oh yeah and stop trying to act like you wouldn't be weirded out by a black Flash.

@marvel_boy2241: You wouldn't love a black batman or a Asian flash, because they're not white?

I love how people are all like "They only picked him to cater to black people". Yeah, that's it. Never mind that he was the right person for the part, never mind the fact that he's a good actor. They only picked him because of marketing. And lemme, guess, you're not racist.

None of y'all gave a poop about bane not being Latino, but, Johnny Storm being black, and Sue Storm and Johnny Storm being part of a interracial family? Stop the camera. This is an outrage.
