Yes, it does rather bother me. If they wanted a black guy use Stalker. If you want a black parachute dude, make a new character.
As for Heavy duty replacing Roadblock, I'd have no problem with HD if he kept his original roll instead of taking roadblocks, which is just stupid..
And don't even get me started on the Scarlett "love triangle" and covergirl being blond.
To me, the only character they got right was Snake Eyes.

Not to be one of those annoying movie defenders, lol, but in her first appearance in the 80's mini-series, Covergirl was in fact, blonde. I actually didn't mind her this way, because when her more current look came about, I was like WTF is Scarlett doing in a tank, lol! As far as the movie goes, I don't mind.
The casting choices and plot have been...interesting to say the least.
As far as Ripcord goes, I'm willing to give Wayans a shot, but I'm not expecting much. And I don't hate him as Ripcord just because he's a Black actor portraying a traditionally White character; I hate it because a Wayans is in a movie I've been dreaming about since I was a kid

My main problem with Ripcord is that they are making him a key figure in this Joeverse. Ripcord is not a leader. He is not Duke's best friend. He's not Scarlet's love interest. He's a paratrooper who should mostly be in the background.

I didn't mind Michael Clarke Duncan (sp) as kingpin in daredevil. duncan fit the part. marlon doesn't fit ripcord.

It is like saying snake eyes is a part of cobra because the jerks at the movie company didn't bother doing their research or just half assing it. Now you can take the whole race thing out of it because of the mask.

i have far too many real-life problems to deal with than to worry about the color of ripcord's skin in the movie. or the accelerator suits. or destro's casting. or snake eye's nationality. or joseph gordon levitt.
there are things that i wish werent...and things that i wish were....but nothing about this production makes my teeth grind like it does some here.
i save that teeth grinding for when my car starts making funny noises.
