There’s been a lot of bitching and harumphing around casting for Josh Trank’s new Fantastic Four reboot, most of it centered around actor Michael B. Jordan in the role of Johnny Storm.
Of course, none of that bitching and harumphing has to do with the fact that Michael B. Jordan is black.
Oh no…of course not, upset fans say. Johnny’s white in the comics, they say, so he should be white in the movie. And what about his sister Sue, played by incredibly white actress Kate Mara? How’s that gonna work, moan the incredulous fanboys.
