How important is spiderman being white to the character? What elements of Peter Parkers life are so integral to his ethnicity that he couldn't be african-american, or japanese, in a film adaptation? If race isn't important to the character, then it shouldn't matter to anyone, even a little bit. Right? So I am to presume none of you would mind in the least. Or Iron Man. Or Batman. Or Superman. Maybe Krypton was a black alien planet in DC's universe. Who's to say it couldn't be? Racists who are not invested in the film for the right reasons, according to most of you. Fortunately for some, no one will ever cast these parts as non-caucasian, so none of the posters who have ridiculed people for wanting Heimdall to resemble his comic book counterpart, will ever have to risk the exposure of this hypocracy. edit: didn't see your post, wobbly. well said.
