Bond fans don't throw a hissy fit because Felix Leiter is suddenly black in Casino Royale. I wonder why Trekkies are so uptight about canon?

Bond fans are already having hissy fits over rumors of Idris Elba playing Bond (not too likely, the way he has gained weight since THE WIRE he would probably look like Yaphet Kotto by the time Craig left.) I've about given up on Bond because of Craig and the wholesale character assassination in CASINO and SKYFALL, which almost make Roger Boore films look okay.

On the other hand, I have little or no problem with Nolan's Batflicks, and as Lt. Arex would say, on the third hand (can't take credit for that one, David Gerrold wrote it a quarter-century back) I find Abrams' efforts offensive and stupid.
