Michael B. Jordan's 'Fantastic Four' Director Defends Casting

Michael B. Jordan stands tall as he attends the Moet Nectar Imperial Rose x Marcelo Burlon Launch Event on Wednesday (June 3) in New York City.

The 28-year-old actor was joined by Solange Knowles and Orange is the New Black‘s Dascha Polanco.

Michael‘s Fantastic Four director Josh Trank recently opened up about the backlash he received about the film’s casting choices.

“I knew it was going to get ugly,” Josh said (via L.A. Times). “I get it. I have a lot of friends who are older than me who are comic fans and it’s really hard for them to be on board with a change like that. Fantastic Four has been theirs for longer than I’ve been alive. It hasn’t been mine.”

In case you missed it, read a powerful essay MBJ recently wrote about the casting outrage.

Orange is the New Black's Dascha Polanco Opens Up on Battling Depression

Dascha Polanco shows off her purple hair on the cover of Latina‘s June/July 2015 cover, out on newsstands now!

Here’s what the 32-year-old Orange is the New Black actress had to share:

On the birth of her first child: “She’s a blessing, a miracle baby but for a first experience it was difficult. Nothing’s wrong with it; it just makes it a little more challenging. The only person that was by my side was my mother.”

On life after her mother’s death: “I remember having to find somebody to stay with my daughter because I didn’t want to stop school, and I couldn’t stop working. It was raining, and I was like, ‘Who can I trust that is not my mom?’ I realized you have to put your armor on; you have to become a warrior, because family is not there.”

On her battle with depression: “Mental health is a big issue and I think it’s ignored a lot in the Latino community. It’s very interesting, the times I’ve felt that I can’t breathe emotionally, and I react to things in a very impulsive manner – where it’s anger or crying. And being able to speak to somebody about that was kind of a revelation that it was okay for me to feel depressed.”
