    Personally, I HATE that retcon and hope it dies, but I have no problems with Namor being cast in a movie as Asian. After all, neither Heimdall or Nick Fury are black either, but were cast black for the movies.

    I haven't seen it, but it appears to be where the fancasting for Jonathan Rhys Meyers for Namor is coming from.

    I forget who said it, but Namor should have a masculine physical presence that is dynamic and intimidating. I don't really get that from Jonathan Rhys Meyers.

    I'd like to see Daniel Dae Kim as him.

    I wouldn't have a problem with it at all. I just think it's weird that the poster was acting like it would be "out of race casting" to cast him as white, when that's not at all the case.

    At least until the Nemo retcon, but even then I figured the poster meant East Asian. Most people who say Namor is Asian mean East Asian. Which is random (outside of the upcoming X-Treme issue and some WWII era "otherness" readings).

    Technically it would be out of race casting, but it's not a big deal.

    The main point I was trying to make is that Namor's one of the few roles that can fit an Asian actor which is a rarity in comics. It would be nice to see that happen. I wasn't trying to be racist or anything.

    I don't think I ever see a suggested Namor that I'm comfortable with.

    But thanks for not making this one about The Rock

    Oh no I didn't think you were being racist at all.

    Fun fact: JR-M was a few years behind me at school. I know his grandparents a little. Namor? Not seen him in that sort of role enough.

    Excellent call. I can definitely see JRM playing him, instead of Namor.
