I'm not alright with this idea. Would they like it if John Stewart, Cyborg, Static Shock or Steel was portrayed by a white person? I know i wouldnt. Instead of changing the white characters into Black characters why dont they create more black characters? I know it's easy to say that but i cant agree with this idea of changing a character. Just like i have a hard time with some costumes.
I think this is stretching it a little. Making black heroes white for a film would actually serve no purpose for a film whereas changing a white character to black at least be explained. They aren't doing it, just to be doing it. Although I think their reasoning is stupid because there are plenty of black characters they can use, Comics as a entertainment format has always played the name game. They would rather take a name you know and put a different face on it, than have to do the work and get you acquainted with a black character you didn't know of before or that they just came up with. They do the same thing with female characters, that's why almost ever popular hero has a female version.
