^^ In the past, Asian characters like Charlie Chan were portrayed by White actors, a practice that is now considered racist-- by the same political demographic that wants historically White characters to become "Black Like Me."
What was considered racist wasn't hiring a white actor to play the part, it was the fact that the studio would not even consider a actual Asian for a lead role in a picture like that in those days.

If they did hire Jordan to play the Torch, I'de like to see them do what Spielberg did in the Lost World with Ian Malcolm's daughter. Just make it obvious that Sue and Johnny are siblings and don't explain anything. Just let it hang there and watch (certain) heads explode.

Anna Torv or Alice Eve as Sue Storm would be sublime.
