So, does anyone else have a problem with this Doctor Strange casting?
What I’ve read of Dr. Strange showed a conflict as well as a coming together of East and West, as well as East versus West. It was all about taking the strengths of both and making a hero.
But now they want the British white chick to play The Ancient One, the mentor (actress Tilda Swinton, Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe) — who was originally an old Asian male.
And now, to play the younger, Asian, Baron Mordo, the competing student and nemesis, they get … Chiwetel Ejiofor?
Are we even keeping the culture conflict aspect of Doctor Strange?
Can we at least have Dormamu be the ultimate bad guy? You know, the demon? He doesn’t have an ethnicity, does he?
