    If they're making Human Torch black, why isn't Invisible Woman black as well? Looks like they wanted to add diversity but were too afraid to go all the way.
    They're willing to change the race of what's arguably the least proeminent character of the team but no way the female lead can be black as well. :/

    Please don't make assumptions when all the details haven't been revealed yet. You're assuming no thought was given to these decisions and considering the amount of money involved in a major motion picture, I can tell you that's not the case. Only once the film has been released will we be able to judge if it worked out.

    This sounds pretty cool. Jordan was kind of whatever when I heard about him but Cathey is awesome in everything.

    A lot of people just assumed (and complained) that Johnny Storm was going to be the adopted sibling.

    Even with this casting news people shouldn't assume that Johnny and Sue wont be biologically related.

    The dude is a pretty damn good actor.
    So that should be cool and is a good sign.

    My one major worry is that the film is gonna be rushed to hell... but we'll see.

    The Torch is arguably the least prominent of the four?! Hmmm.....

    Yeah, I don't get that comment either.

    The least prominent member of the team is Sue. Johnny about at the same level as Reed with Ben being the most prominent/popular member.

    Objectively, there is no "least prominent member" of the team, because each one is most prominent in the minds of some portion of the groups fans.
