They will have to change his name to Perry Black, then.

Superman movies needed to show some diversity, in past most of the TV series and movies (even comics) featured mostly white people, now they have a chance to make the movie more realistic and show some diversity, nothing wrong with that approach.

Yeah. It was like watching The Fresh Prince, only with white people instead of black

The new Spider-Man isn't Peter Parker.

Anywhoo, it's not so much about race, per say, as it is faithfully adapting the look of any given character.

I would protest any Superman suit that dares to not use red, blue, and yellow, for example.

Indeed. But still using the name spider man. Times are changing.

Many fans are just purists -- that's all. It isn't that they're necessarily racist (although that's a possibility for some ). I mean.. if people are going to whine about Henry Cavill's lack of a spitcurl or James Bond not having dark hair on film anymore (there were actually several anti-Daniel Craig sites created for this very reason, believe it or not), it's only logical that some people will cry foul when a known character's race is changed for whatever reason. In terms of appearance, it's a drastic alteration, and comic fans are known for nitpicking about even the small things.

And btw, the new Ultimates Spider-Man is an altogether different character in the comics. It's not like they changed Peter Parker's race.

Ya know, for some reason I think Fishburne will be perfect with grey hair. However if his hair is all black I will be bugged. Sound crazy? I do want him to appear as a news veteran that worked his way up through the rank for some reason.

i love LF in role but it is a double standard trust me if blade got a movie reboot with a white actor in the lead you would hear nothing but racism posts and whitewashing all over the net even tho race does'nt influence the blade character and we have had a black actor in 3 movies and a tv series.

I hope Perry in MOS starts going off on old stories in the field like Lane Smith's version did. I guess we won't get Elvis stories (which were great) but I want him to have some personality like he did.
