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.

Michael B. Jordan Responds to 'Fantastic Four' Casting Outrage

Michael B. Jordan has written an article to address the controversy behind his Fantastic Four 4 casting as Johnny Storm!

“I didn’t want to be ignorant about what people were saying. Turns out this is what they were saying: ‘A black guy? I don’t like it. They must be doing it because Obama’s president’ and ‘It’s not true to the comic.’ Or even, ‘They’ve destroyed it!’ the 28-year-old actor wrote on Entertainment Weekly.

He added, “Some people may look at my casting as political correctness or an attempt to meet a racial quota, or as part of the year of ‘Black Film.’”

“To the trolls on the Internet, I want to say: Get your head out of the computer. Go outside and walk around. Look at the people walking next to you. Look at your friends’ friends and who they’re interacting with. And just understand this is the world we live in. It’s okay to like it,” Michael closed.
