So to even come close to nullifying this part of the movie going audience, IMO is a pretty stupid move on the part of Fox. Especially since that portion of the moviegoing audience is still pissed from the first 2 tries for the most part.
Again. Most of these fans, like it or not, will still be in line if it looks amazing and gets good reviews. Fanboys are no where near the majority to make or break a film. How many Scott Pilgrims or Judge Dredds do we have to have before we get over ourselves a little?
Plus, in the era where a multi-ethnic series like Fast and the Furious is pulling down 200 million plus. I don't see why letting some black 6 year-old is kid maybe have a black Johnny Storm toy to play with is going to ruin the world of a 30 year old grown men.
