How did you guys feel about black Heimdall or Kingpin?
They were actually both really good imo.

Changing the race of Johnny or Storm would be stupid though.

I disagree there

John Goodman could'eve been Kingpin.

Meh. Goodman looks too soft to be physically imposing. Duncan had lean, solid mass behind his weight.

Heimdall and Kingpin were fine to change.

Johnny and Storm wouldn't be.

This will likely blow over just like when Donald Glover was publicly campaigning to be Spider Man. Myself, I'm not for changing Johnny from Caucasian to Black. The group dynamic will be changed too much.

Goodman is too short, was too old, and not physically imposing enough to play Kingpin. MCD was big, tall and massive, he was physically intimidating, something Goodman doesn't really have.

John Goodman can and has been physically intimidating (O Brother Where Art Thou?), but not by superhero movie standards. A younger, more muscular John Goodman could have been the perfect Kingpin, imo. He's very good at being menacing when he needs to be.

Affleck is taller than Goodman, DD can't be taller than Kingpin. He's always been a good actor, he's just not Kingpin material in my opinion.

On the subject of needing to be 'taller' I'm sure they could of made up for that with movie magic if they had to.

Storm should remain black and Johnny Storm The Human Torch, White.
Since Sue and Johnny's mother was never a "whoe" i think anyone wanting to rewrite the origin would be a loser to do that. as for the role of kingpin, the acting chops never really were called for there and yes Nathan Jones a white actor would even dwarf mcd. Michael clark duncan is a descent actor loved him in the greene Mile and amrmageddon. I prefer cannon and that includes Nick Fury.

The same can be said about Storm. Johnny Storm is of Anglo Saxon heritage, you can't change his race.

Johnny Storm is white, though. I mean, sure, if you can't find a good actor that resembles the character, then by all means, find someone of a different colour to do the job.

It's excusable when it's people like Kingpin or Heimdall, imo. When it's someone like Johnny Storm and it would in turn affect other characters? Not so much.

I'd be more willing to accept say, Reed or Doom played by Idris Elba or something, but then again, I'm not a massive F4 fan.

If they decided to make Cyclops black, that wouldn't be cool, imo.

Storm has had her heritage expounded upon too much to be any color other than black.

She's descended from an ancient, centuries old line of African tribal priestesses on her mothers side, and her dad is black. You'd have to change her entire backstory to make her any other color.

As for Johnny. While he's a white guy and imo should remain a white guy, a race change on him wouldn't be as drastic since Johnny and Sue's family and backstory and lineage have never really been a big deal. They're white, they had parents. That's about as far as it goes.
