If a black actor is cast as The Human Torch, what’s next? Some guy not made out of rocks playing The Thing?
News has broken that Michael B. Jordan (Chronicle) is being considered to play Johnny Storm (The Human Torch) in the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot. Naturally, comic book fans across the Internet are furious, because they’ve had it with all the reboots and just want to preserve the magic of the 2005 original — oh, wait, no. They’re angry because Michael B. Jordan is black. And in the comics, Johnny Storm is white.
Actually… that would be a cool twist. Especially if he’s still Sue’s brother and she’s also black. Also she’s Halle Berry. So I guess she’s half? Isn’t she half? Whatever, she’s all hot. I suffered through Catwoman for her.
Listen, all I’m trying to say is make Susan Storm Halle Berry and we can forget about her as Storm. Or maybe they’re related but only the first X-Men movie happened. I mean, 2 was tolerable, but everything after that was… sort of watchable, but they lost the thread it seemed like. Kind of like how the first F4 movie was pretty alright, but the ones after were like GUH.
How do you fuck up Dr. Doom? He’s one of the best bad guys ever.
As long as we’re at it, when are we gonna get some She-Hulk up in these movies? And how are we going to fix the Ghost Rider situation? Marvel kind of dicked over some good properties on the way to Iron Man…
What were we talking about?
