I'm still waiting for the announcement that roles like the Black Panther and Luke Cage have been given to a white actor because he had superior acting ability and was better suited for the part.
But that doesn't work - as Christopher notes above - The Black Panther is other by the very nature of his character and Luke Cage's historical context is Blaxploitation so he doesn't make much sense removed from that. Johnny Storm's character is an off-the-peg teenager archetype, there is nothing within the character that requires him to white.
