TMZ swarmed Michael B. Jordan in West Hollywood last night hours after he was announced to play super hero Human Torch in the upcoming “Fantastic Four” remake.
As previously reported, the Marvel Comics character has always been blonde-haired and blue-eyed, and has a white sister Sue Storm, to be played in the new film by white actress Kate Mara.
Needless to say, Jordan’s colorblind casting didn’t sit well with a number of folks, who expressed outrage online. “Don’t cast a black guy to play a white super hero. It’s just not right!” read one voice of dissent online.
