    This will trigger many, but I just have to say it.

    With every other comic movie they have to change the race of characters and do drastic changes to characters backstories and origins to force more diversity into the movie. And if there are more than two white people cast people get outraged at how "vanilla" the movie is.

    So why is it that Black Panther gets a free pass on only casting black actors and actresses? I don't want to hear "Because it's set in Africa." That's BS. They could make drastic changes to the character and have him fighting his villain in another part of the world so they could force some diversity into the movie. If they have to do it with every other movie, then they should have to do it with this movie.

    If you have to change characters to add diversity when it's a white character, then they should have to do it when it's a black character as well. 

    Don't like it? Why should I care? We've seen them change so many characters to other races and made drastic changes to characters just to push diversity. So this movie should be held to the same standard.

  1. See its comments like this that let "Real Black Panther" readers know how moronic and close closet racist minded you are. If you would have done a backstory you would know he has an adopted brother who "IS WHITE". Everett Ross is always included in the series and will be in the movie. You people are gonna piss me off in 2018. Stay the hell away or do your research if you don't know what this is about.
