Re: Fantastic Four reboot-- Casting, Rumors, Pix, ect;

All question of race aside, and I'm perfectly happy with Michael B. Jordan in theory (never seen him in anything), making Sue and Johnny not siblings pretty much is a dealbreaker. Make Johnny adopted if you have to.

You're right overall in your post, but this is a bit laying it on. Using Daredevil as an example of somebody "nominally" white is odd too, since disabilities aren't exactly discriminating.
Even in the darkness every color can be found
