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.
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? :( http://forums.superherohype.com/show...=#post26183131
