    I never agreed with that assessment. Connery doesn't work in that role as good as Moore does. And I'd say Craig is the best

    I'd say Clooney and Kilmer were worse

    Maybe for a TV project. Anson Mount isn't a hollywood leading man. Pedro is being positioned to be one. He's in a lot of high profile projects.

    And according to Jeff Sneider, Feige wanted a Non-White Reed Richards.

    Pedro one of the few non-White actors who can still look like comics Reed when clean shaven.

    Uh...... no.
    He's Latin American, from Chile. Lived in Denmark for a while, then went to the States.

    White people live in Latin America. The descendants of the conquistadors who forced everyone to speak Spanish

    What? I just don't assumed everyone in Latin America is mixed. It's as diverse as the USA & Canada

    Thr average Chilean is about 40% Native American with a few percent African.

    Pascal had a grandmother who immigrated from Spain, and is from an upper class background, so he probably has more Euro ancestry than the norm for Chile, but he is certainly mixed to some degree...basically everyone in Latin America not of recent immigrant stock is.

    Yeah. People tend to conflate Chile with Argentina and Uruguay, which were much more heavily transformed by 19th/20th century European immigration. Chile is fundamentally a mestizo culture like Mexico, with strong contributions from the indigenous peoples who were in the area before colonization.

    If you looked him up, his father's family is of Basque descent and his mother's family is of Spanish descent.

    That of course doesn't take into account what @eschaton brought up about native descent a few generations in. I've known a couple Belizeans that were native/black/Spanish.

    The scenes at the party where he first meets Vicky are played in a nebishy manner. Not very "millionaire playboy".

    Going back to Sentry/Superman comparisons for for a moment. In Marvel Zombies Comic series it's Sentry who brings the Zombie virus to that universe.

    Allegedly, it wasn't Sentry originally but an unnamed super hero that had the same colour scheme as Superman, with a diamond shaped rip in his uniform where the S emblem would be.

    They got cold feet over DC possibly not taking kindly to it, so he was partly redrawn to look like Sentry, but he still has Superman's hair cut (with curl), and the diamond shaped rip in his uniform is still there.

    ^ I like the idea of Superman bringing the zombie virus to the Marvel Universe, funny and subversive and in the right tone for the concept.

    I've seen art out there with him in the colours, but I'm not sure if that was leaked or a fan edit.

    Probably depends on the family and social status. My wife's family is from Mexico and has no Indigenous or African ancestry. They are upper class of Spanish and Basque descent and even looked down on my wife's grandmother for marrying an American. Even my mother in law referred to herself as "Spanish" rather than Mexican. Though there was a rebellious aunt who hung out with the likes of Diego Rivera and Frieda Kahlo.

    What if that was the cause in the MCU
