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.
A white actor did play the (partly) Hispanic character Bane in The Dark Knight Rises.
I prefer that the characters do look close to the comic book depiction (to the point of even disliking a little that non-blonde Chris Evans played Johnny Storm and Steve Rogers, although he was good as the former and OK as the latter) but the quality of the writing and acting are much more important.
Bane's father in the comics was British. Tom Hardy is British. Not seeing the problem.

Evans is a blond, just not a primary color yellow blond like you see in the comics.

Not a problem but a partial change-in a direction some consider to be unlikely.

OT-- Nothing to do with the current production, but rather the "lost" Roger Corman movie.

DOOMED: The Untold Story of Roger Corman’s THE FANTASTIC FOUR will be a documentary chronicling the history of the first attempt to bring the FF to the big screen.

Having seen the original movie I will say two things-- I can understand why it was never released, and I still liked it better than the big-screen monstrosities that we got. I will check this out for sure.

Not sure what you mean. What is unlikely?

I remember at the time of filming Bullpen Bulletins (I think) would always have updates on the production and I was really excited to see it but then it never materialized. To this day I still haven't seen it. Of course now we know it was just made to retain the film rights but I'm sure all will be revealed in the documentary. Should be interesting!

I remember Stan Lee writing about the Dolph Lundgren Punisher and Matt Salinger Captain America prior to their release as movies that were going to be spectacular.

Th whole thing is on YouTube.

That was the rumor for years, but I think it turned out to be incorrect.

Seriously? The Corman movie was a piece of utter crap, IMO. I always assume that folks who say they like it better than the recent FF movies are simply registering their distaste for the Tim Story directed movies.

The Story FF movies weren't great super hero movies but if you focused on Johnny and the Thing you could get some enjoyment out of them. The Corman FF was insanely unwatchable.

He is a Marvel cheerleader, of course he will be saying great things about them even if the movies turn out to be awful. I only hope he was happy when the actually GOOD movies started being released like X Men, Spider Man, Iron Man and Avengers.

I know, but the level of his exuberance can still be amusing when the product is so lacking.

He is either one of the most enthusiastic people that ever lived, or a complete whore for a paycheck. I still haven't figured it out.

I am entirely serious. And I agree that it was a piece of crap. But more important that what it did wrong, is what it did right. The character dynamics and interactions between Reed and Sue and Reed and Doom, for one. The Doom in Corman's movie is insanely, gloriously over the top, as Doom should be. Story's Doom was just another corrupt businessman. Corman's FF felt more like a family story than, er, Story's. Story got most of that important stuff wrong.

No kidding. I remember him boasting of the one million dollar budget for FF and how they were going to squeeze every bit out of it for the F/X.
