I agree with you steelersrock01, it annoys me too. We are seeing more and more of it. In Marvel alone there is Nick Fury who is supposed to be a white World War II soldier, Marvel are trying to make Captain America black. Johnny Storm (the human torch of the Fantastic Four who is supposed to be Sue Storms sister) is all of a sudden black. Heimdell from Thor, Mary Jane Watson form Spider-man. In DC you have Catwoman. Just a few I can remember of the top of my head. Why don't they create entirely new characters for these black actors to play? I don't have a problem with that. When I see characters like Nick Fury who I remember reading about forty years ago suddenly becoming black it is annoying and trying to turn Captain America into a black Super Hero just ruins the character.

That's my issue with it, they always have to "blackwash" existing characters instead of making new original stuff. It's so frustrating. And it's always Black people too. Never Asian or Hispanic. If I was a member of a minority group and constantly saw this stuff I would feel insulted.

Yeah, I feel the same way. Keep the originals how they are, and just find some creativity with new characters.

I wonder why they don't do that, there must be some kind of reason for it. And you are right steelersrock01 what you say about it's never the asians or hispanics complaining, it's always the blacks and if you point that out to them you get accused of being racist.

Yeah, they are lazy and lacking creativity. That is what it boils down to. Otherwise, they would not just slap a new race on an old character and call it a day.

It's easier to just change existing properties cause they know people will watch it no matter what than it is to come up with new creative stuff that you then have to market and get people to go see. Stuff is so expensive to make now companies play it super safe.

Lol, when I first read your post Warrior13 about being lazy and lacking creativity I thought you where refering to blacks in general. It was only when I read it again I realised you were refering to the movie studios that produce the films.

Yeah, just lazy and lacking creativity in general. Bringing back old shows, repeat movie plots. Bleh.
