The comics have made several adjustments to his themes, origins and nature, and I'd imagine a film would have to do the same, and would.
ahh but you see you're using this little known thing called common sense, you need to get with the rest of people who immediately see Asian character and expect bad accent buck teeth and big thick glasses
