Re: The Official Lex Luthor Casting Thread - Part 8
This is a particular factor for DC, because most of its principle characters were created in the 1930s-40s, when non-whites just weren't represented at all. The comics are clearly trying to redress this, since almost every new hero seems to be non-American, or non-white, or non-male, or non-heterosexual. The problem with that from a movie perspective is that all of those characters are (currently) almost unknown outside the comics. Who is really going to make a Vibe or a BatWing movie?
Denzel would be great as Lex. He isn't the only choice, but I don't think the fact he has black skin should rule him out.
Feel like using the word "hyperbole"? Better check what it means!
It is unnecessary to point out that somebody's opinion is their opinion. Don't.
Worried they might cast a black man as your favourite superhero? :(
