    Kwouk is the British Chinese actor known for playing Cato in the Pink Panther films. He was also in three of the Connery Bond films in the sixties, Empire of the Sun, Air America and Kiss of the Dragon.

    Funny. But my guess is that TAO (ooh, spooky that it spells that) will have to share a good chunk of screen time with Strange. The actor has to be a good fit.

    To be honest I could actually live with not seeing the ancient one in the movie. There's no way I can see him appearing that wouldn't be an embarrassing cliche

    So Asians can't be sorcerers........ Check [​IMG]

    I might as well scratch Black Panther off my list because racist have been comparing black people to animals for a few centuries. Since the Black Panther comic dehumanizes him by turning the Black main character virtually into a Beast its now a classic racist cliche.:whatever:

    That is clearly nothing like what I said.

    What I said was that falling back on the ancient asian mystical guy who is apparently a master except it takes a white guy like two days to learn everything he already knows is an embarrassing cliche

    So is the solution to cast a none Asian actor as the ancient one?

    No.

    As I said, perhaps the ancient one doesn't need to be in this at all

    That's proably unlikely. During the Phase Three announcements, Fiege clearly mentioned the Ancient One when talking about Strange's origin. Look it up on youtube.

    El Mayimbe posted on twitter that he knows who they are casting for The Ancient One, no specifics, just a critic tweet about it being an interesting choice.

    If he knew who it was, he'd post the name.

    I get the impression these people sometimes know things months before they actually reveal them

    For fun's sake, Chiun from Remo (freaking) Williams would be tremendous.
