SR: When the news broke that Tilda Swinton was in talks to join the cast of Marvel’s Doctor Strange, it was pretty awesome news for a variety of reasons, chief among them that Tilda Swinton herself is pretty awesome.
I love Tilda but white washing the Ancient One and gender swapping is ridiculous. Are they honestly trying to say there's no decent Asian actors out there. Comes off lazy in my opinion. The casting for this film has been really odd compared to other Marvel films.
Yeah it seems like they are trying to show diversity for the sake of it when casting an Asian actor would have been more than sufficient. There are great Asian actors out there.
What gives you that impression? Literally nothing backs that statement up.
@RetrospectRealm Baron Mordo - Character is White (Transylvanian) - Being played by a black actor despite the fact he'd be better off as Brother Voodoo Ancient One - Character is male and Asian - Being played by a white female The changes are pretty much changing them for the sake of it.
