    Unfortunately whitewashing claims is going to kill this franchise before it starts. :-(


    Please rsceswap Cypher into a black guy and cast Karma. And get them into supporting extended cameo roles ASAP FOX!

    That's not how it works... The Director may have quit Twitter to hide from the Minority Fanboys/girls but he will not be able to when he speaks to the press junkets in March. And it's so sad Blu/Henry will be slaughtered for accepting jobs.

    This movie has a high chance to be D.O.A. (I'll do my part but I'm just one man)

    New Mutants being a horror superhero movie is a plus for the audience I think. All it needs is a great great trailer & poster like Logan & Deadpool.

    Pointless thread, there's not enough people that frequent these boards that would require separating them. There's a problematic aspect of casting and that's it. Everything else about this film sounds very good and very New Mutants, and I think many people are very excited to see the Demon Bear Saga and Sienkiewicz's work come to life.

    No in the long run that is probably a good thread to have there so you and the regulars can visit.

    It would be ok if the other thread wasn't complaining about race because the recast actress isn't as dark as the previous actress.

    As soon as race came up, figured it was time.

    I don't hold anything against these actors. Actors have to work, and they're not in the position to be choosy. The blame is on the studio and if this tanks then I can't say Fox didn't deserve it. But you're right, it won't be good for these actors, unfortunately.

    If people could handle Heimdell, Valkyrie, Domino, Nick Fury, The Ancient One(people threatened that film with boycotts and we all saw how that turned out) and "That's Mary Jane, you're not fooling anyone", then I don't see how they can't handle this. It's not like its an all white cast and white actors taking the roles of Sunspot ( pretty sure Adan Canto from DOFP wasn't Brazillian) and Mirage. The people that are tying to make an argument about this (mainly the Tumblr crowd) probably never read or even heard of the comics and probably wasn't going to see this in the first place.

    People who make this argument clearly don't read or refuse to acknowledge that these aren't the same things. I've read every New Mutants comic, I don't have Tumblr, and I really want a New Mutants movie.

    well again i say big double standard here.again fox is being taken to woodshed for stuff others have done.truthfuly only ceicila is case when you can really go they whitewashed.

    some were bound to come after new mutants because josh boone said film has no costumes.

    this film is going to live or die what general audence thinks.if josh boone makes good film that can attract people that will be all that matters.

    I wanted a New Mutants movie that stays true to the diversity of the comics.

    And I want a Spider-Man that stayed true to its text and not taking ideas from Miles Morales.

    I guess diversity is more important to me than it is for you.

    @marvelrobbins - Fox isn't being taken the woodshed lol, just look at Dr.Strange and how they changed the Ancient One and the setting of the film. Or Olsen playing Wanda. Nolan's Ra's al Ghul, Talia and Bane also get similar flack nowadays. You gotta stop feeling victimized just because there's a few ridiculous people out on the internet.

    People are becoming more and more conscious about this. And you're right, too many free passes have been given. These studios bank on us being apathetic as they take away opportunities that should be given to bodies of all colour.
