Yeah but Electro was never black.
Well, he's really more of a blue-ish hue ;-)
Hey Nick Fury wasn't black in the comics either, but Sammy Jackson does it quite well! I don't think it really matters what color the actor is.....so long as they are good in the role.
Good point; I really like Jamie Fox as an actor and usually don't mind if they substitute the race of a character. When they killed Peter Parker in Ultimate Spider-Man and made a black kid; Myles Morales Spider-Man, I wasn't sold because this was a MAJOR character they were messing with, but I thought they handled it really well. On the other side of the coin, if they made Captain America or Thor a black guy, then that would be a bit much!
Agreed....that might be going into Blackenstein/Blackula territory at that point!
