    I love the casting of Michael, really I do, but Johnny and Sue are meant to be siblings… If you want to change Johnny’s race, it’d only be appropriate to do the same for Sue.

    For crying out loud, a black Johnny Storm and a white Sue Storm makes no sense whatsoever!!!

    @Becca:

    I really don’t understand the need to diversify the character, especially Johnny Storm’s character. They could have Ben Grimm change race and it wouldn’t have affected the dynamic. Becca is right. They should remain siblings and not through adoption.

    Well, I sure hope there is a VERY interesting back story on what a brother and sister are of different races. Should have just brought in an Asian Susan Storm and a Indian Johnny Storm! Would have made more sense!

    I will pass on this when people think they can just “change” the original probably because of some political correctness or some crap. This will fail fast.

    You know a movie is bad when Zac Efron is like uhhh no thanks guys im good

    Emma Says:

    Well, I know I am not going to even bother watching that. First off, Johnny Storm is WHITE, not black, and NONE of these actors look like the characters they are going to play.

    Congratulations, Hollywood, you had the chance to create a fantastic movie, and you screwed up again.

    Not surprised, and I am also not surprised that no one else will watch it, either.

    Smh people are already complaining because of a character’s race. Is it going to be like the little girl from the Hunger games and Donald Glover for Spiderman? At the same time it’s Hollywood you know they wouldn’t have cast a black girl as the main female character. But congrats to Michael!!

    @Becca: brother and sister can’t be black and white?

    nat Says:

    Congrats to Michael he will be a fantastic Johnny Storm/Human Torch! As for the people saying that they should be “siblings” not through adoption… that’s such a silly and outdated thing to say. Just because they’re not siblings by blood doesn’t make them any less ‘siblings’ than those who are.

    @becka: right?! god forbid we finally have a black man in the lead role of a superhero movie…

    OMG. Do they have any new ideas? Not this crap again! They will make their way through the entire marvel etc library before doing anything worthwhile.

    Richard Says:

    I’m not watching this because they are all 6s not very attractive, sigh. They think their hot but no they are not LOL PASS! Too many changes and gross. I wouldn’t have watched even if one of them was gay. No gay guy is below a 6 SMH

    WTF?? A BLACK JOHNNY STORM??? POLITICAL CORRECTNESS IS BECOMING PEOPLE MORE AND MORE STUPID WITH THE YEARS.

    Jason Says:

    @becka: It’s not because he is black its because Sue is not. The characters are blood brother and sister. They should both be white or both be black.

    @chris: Uh, I doubt a straight to video would get such a good cast. Certainly way better than the other cast with the super dull Jessica Alba.

    This cast is amazing!!!! I’m kinda obsses qith Miles Teller since I saw Spectacular Now, i totally recommend btw. These are all fantastic actors (no pun intended), :) I hope the director is as good as the cast.

    They’re all great actors who are becoming very well known, so idk where everyone is coming from saying they’re not. I don’t get why they couldn’t make Sue black if Johnny was gonna be black as well but I guess they wanted to half way appeal to the racist aholes like the ones already showing themselves here. Maybe they hired MBJ because he’s an amazing actor who did better than the white men who auditioned for it and it has nothing to do with ‘political correctness’? Black kids are out here not being able to see anyone they identify with in movies and feeling inferior for it and angry white dudes are shouting because this 100% fictional fantasy world is “unrealistic” and “ruined” because it doesn’t have the same limitations the real world has. An alien life form made of silver flies around on a surfboard in the F4 movies and that’s plausible but it is COMPLETELY UNHEARD OF AND RIDICULOUS that a black man would be relevant anywhere on Earth. If you want to see a white male lead go watch literally any other movie that Will Smith, Samuel Jackson, Denzel Washington and Morgan Freeman aren’t in and shut the f up
