Default Re: All Things Superman and Batman: An Open Discussion - Part 2

I hope if they do cast a Batman love interest, they give her a new name so that she can be cast without regard to ethnicity.

That said, I would really love to see Vicki Vale done in this film. However considering how many purist who do not accept deviations in ethnicity of characters there are, I would not really recommend that course.

The reality is that over half the children born in the US are non-white. People can no longer hold on to insisting on white casts. Anyway, considering how many non-Native Americans have been cast as Native Americans over time, insisting on ethnic accuracy in casting is not going to work.

Anyway, they cast a Hispanic as Susan Storm in Fantastic 4. The boat of casting Hispanic people in basically white roles has already sailed.
