It could drive a man to drink.I'm with ya. I pity poor Cap, who must not *ever* sleep the way they've got him rushing from this title, to that title, back to his own title, over to Avengers this, then to Avengers that, save the world here, get stuck in an alternate dimension there, yada, yada, yada.
I hope he's well compensated.
And I think it is not as simple as such an either/or. I think the truth lands somewhere in the middle. Casting is a complicated thing, with a lot of hands in (and other people's money). I feel like a lot of people are assuming that Johnny was the only role that was considered to be for an actor of a different race. And that might not have been the case. All sorts of people in all sorts of roles might have been in play. All we find out is where they landed. As for how they got there-- their job is finding out who are the best people they can get, who will get the most people to want to see the movie, for the money they have.Are we casting people of different ethnicitys in the historically white role because they're the best person for the job?
Or are we doing it simply to "level the playing field"/"even things up"?
