I've got no problem with race-switching, either --- in the vast majority of cases in comic-book movies, race/ethnicity wasn't a crucial part to the character's persona, so making them black/latino/asian doesn't change a thing in the end analysis.
What I *am* wondering is what kind of personality Max Dillon is supposed to have in this movie. Comic-book Max is an over-the-top ubergeek who's pretty much the laughingstock of the Marvel Universe. I just can't see Foxx playing that --- my concern is that Jamie is just too cool for Electro.
