Chris Rock was cast as Jimmy for Tim Burton's Superman movie.

And no one would care if he were black, but it'd be weird since they already made Perry black.

Comic fans are cool with changing the races of minor characters, but when you change the race of a major character for no reason (Human Torch), then they get pissed.

But in the case where the actor is perfect for the role (Kingpin), comic fans are cool with it.
