Re: "Flame On!" The Human Torch Thread
But appearances are still part of the character.
Sue Storm has blonde hair; I ideally wouldn't want anyone but a blonde playing her. Reed Richards is smart and semi-skinny looking; someone with a large, bulky build shouldn't be playing him.
Yes appearances aren't the most important thing, but it's still a part of it for me. So I'm with the guy two posts above.
I want him to be white simply because he's white in the comics.
That is literally it. Nothing even remotely racist about that, nothing even remotely offensive about that.
That being said, since that's a simple, straight forward reason, if/when this guy is cast in the role I won't lose any sleep over it. End of the day it's not a huge deal.
