I’m guessing Zac Efron is too old for Johnny Storm now? And should Doom be the same age as Reed?
Origame - 8/21/2021, 11:33 AM
@WruceBayne - apparently they are looking for minorities to play the team, with no group specifically other than making sure Johnny and Sue are the same race.

@Origame - stop using the word “minorities “ please - be better
Spagett - 8/21/2021, 12:09 PM
@boogiefett - Non-whites*
Origame - 8/21/2021, 12:11 PM
@boogiefett - what would you rather me use? Poc? Honestly since poc is so close to pos, I find minority to be more respectful.
WruceBayne - 8/21/2021, 12:55 PM
@Origame - I DID hear that was an option they were exploring. Minority or non minority, I just hope it’s good. I’m more interested in the FF villains than the 1st family.

@Origame - Dang you, ya got me agreeing with Origame. Grrrr !
Origame - 8/21/2021, 1:05 PM
@WruceBayne - here's the article in question where it's reported they are looking for minorities in the role. https://www.comicbookmovie.com/fantastic_four/fantastic-four-marvel-rumored-to-be-seeking-diverse-actors-for-most-if-not-all-team-members-a186244#gs.8xf1zg

@Origame - They just aren't exclusively looking for white people. Minority doesn't really apply here, there are races of people that outnumber the light skinned ones
Origame - 8/21/2021, 1:29 PM
@UncleHarm1 - ...not in America, which is the whole reason for a push in diversity here.

Also, the article I gave specifically states they're looking for people of color. Not only that but given the current trend of marvel, if they're simply opening it up to all races, it'll definitely be almost exclusively minorities.
EskimoJ - 8/21/2021, 2:13 PM
@Origame - Already several states' white populations are below that of POC -- according to 2020 Census data -- so a growing influx of minorities makes demographic sense despite weirdos' futile resistance to it.

And if they do decide to make them exclusively non-white (highly improbable), you and all the others will deal. ✌🏾
Origame - 8/21/2021, 2:30 PM
@EskimoJ - thats just in a few states. Not in terms of the population as a whole. And even in terms of the states that do have people of color above white is when you lump ALL people of color together instead of breaking them into the individual groups they actually belong to, like Hispanic or Asian. If you actually bother to separate them, it's not even close. https://usafacts.org/data/topics/people-society/population-and-demographics/population-data/population/

Also, you say this like I'm against minorities in movies. I'm not. I'm against unnecessary race changes.
LiteralSense - 8/21/2021, 2:49 PM
@Origame - Just like @EskimoJ said, if they do cast only people of color for the characters, which is highly unlikely, you’ll deal with it.

Marvel Studios isn’t looking for your approval on what they do with THEIR characters.
Origame - 8/21/2021, 2:57 PM
@LiteralSense90 - ...yes they are. It's called the box office. Wb is already learning this with their incredibly unpopular decision to make a black Clark Kent superman movie, something that's basically already guaranteed its bombing at the box office.

@Origame - how tf is “minorities” a racist term now? lol what a joke
Origame - 8/21/2021, 4:07 PM
@Kman - lol I have no idea. It's like that gas station scene from the hunt where they're arguing what they're currently allowed to call black people.
GeneralZod - 8/21/2021, 8:07 PM
@Kman - Because ... Newspeak.
Kman - 8/22/2021, 2:55 AM
@GeneralZod - not only that… 16 people liked it lol… wow
GeneralZod - 8/22/2021, 3:36 AM
@Kman - Yep. Orwellian-style socialism is taking firm hold here.
Franshu - 8/21/2021, 11:26 AM
"(fingers crossed that's not the case)"

For once, I fully agree with Josh here.
I'm still hoping they make good use of the Multiverse thing here and bring them from an alternate dimension, so that they remain,in a way, "Marvel's First Family"
Juggernaut2021 - 8/21/2021, 11:27 AM
I would love it if they just skipped in to an established FF team and Baxter Building and Doom. Quick flashback or news story for their origin and move on full tilt.
