He's more iconic as a leading figure. But as a supporting character like Lois Lane or a villain? It's not on the same level. It's not as important. If they can change Bond and his skin then they can do it with Catwoman or Lex Luthor.

Skin means nothing. It's about how they portray the character, if they have all the qualities that are needed.

Now, changing them in the source material itself, in the comics, that's a big NO. But this is a different medium with films that are made for the general public more than we think.
