Michael B. Jordan Cast in ‘Fantastic Four,’ Receives Racist Backlash

Michael B. Jordan

It was recently announced that Fruitvale Station‘s very own Michael B. Jordan has been cast in the rebooted Fantastic Four as the Human Torch. In the original Fantastic Four, Chris Evans played the Human Torch. Now some fans in the Marvel universe are causing a bit of a stir over Michael B. Jordan’s casting, and some believe that this is a huge race issue.

It’s no surprise that there’s a lack of diversity in the Marvel franchise. Outlets have dedicated features to the problem of race inclusion in the Marvel universe. It should also be said that there has yet to be a lead female superhero film (excluding Elektra) in the comic book world (DC and Marvel). Still it begs to be reminded that race is a significant issue and is the unseen face in the comic book universe.
