Where Native America meets pop culture
One example of when the casting went the other way was African-American Michael Clark Duncan being cast as the white Kingpin in "Daredevil". I thought the casting decision could not be better.Casting African-American Billy Dee Williams as the white Two Face/ Harvey Dent character in 1989 "Batman" was an interesting choice, but he was only in for a little bit. When push came to shove, and Two-Face got major screen time in later "Batman" movies, they used white actors.
I tend to agree. For more on the subject, see Black Batman in First Wave Universe?
