I can’t believe people aren’t more up-in-arms about the whitewashing in Nolan’s Batman movies. Everyone seems to hate on the Avatar movie and Prince of Persia and other movies, but Nolan did it in his movies too. Four out of the five non-white characters were cast with white actors! That’s pretty bad. And not only were the actors white, but Nolan didn’t even pretend to give them their proper ethnic backgrounds/histories, or have them do the proper accents or anything. And what’s even worse is that the actor who played Bane actually did fake an accent, but instead of a Hispanic accent it was some weird Austrian thing.
The only reason I can think that Nolan would do this, is that he’s completely ignorant (not probable), he’s racist (whether he acknowledges it or not), or he thought having four PoC villains would be worse than not having any PoC characters at all. What do you think?
To my PoC followers: would you rather he whitewash the characters if the alternative means the majority of the ethnic characters are villains?
I’m just gonna sit here and laugh at all of you who are fighting over The Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises. It’s times like these that I’m reminded how petty and childish people on Tumblr can be.
