Re: Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen (2018)

The casting of Tilda Swinton as “The Ancient One” in Doctor Strange was appreciated for its gender-swapping but was frowned upon because the character is traditionally Asian.
I laughed especially hard at this one. It must have really fucked with the heads of SJWs who wanted to praise a man being switched to a woman but also be pissed off that an Asian role was given to a white person. :lol

That's because it's the other way around. It's okay if it's the opposite of "whitewashing", of course.
Kinda like how anyone who dared criticize the casting of Michael B. Jordan as the Human Torch and Idris Elba as Roland Deschain, both traditionally white roles, immediately got called a racist.

Daniel Dae Kim in Talks to Replace Ed Skrein in 'Hellboy' Reboot (Exclusive)

Daniel Dae Kim, who recently left CBS’ Hawaii Five-0, is in negotiations to join the cast of Lionsgate and Millennium’s Hellboy reboot.

Kim will step into the role left vacant by Ed Skrein after an outcry over whitewashing a Asian-American character.

Kim will play Major Ben Daimio, a rugged military member of the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense who, due to a supernatural encounter, can turn into a jaguar when angered or in pain. The character is Japanese-American in the Hellboy comics by creator Mike Mignola.

Skrein had nabbed the role in August but, after a social media protest, made the unprecedented move to step down later that month.

“It is clear that representing this character in a culturally accurate way holds significance for people, and that to neglect this responsibility would continue a worrying tendency to obscure ethnic minority stories and voice in the Arts. I feel it is important to honor and respect that,” he said in a statement.

Lionsgate concurred, saying, “It was not our intent to be insensitive to issues of authenticity and ethnicity, and we will look to recast the part with an actor more consistent with the character in the source material."

Kim is Korean-American, and the actor is no stranger to standing up for his beliefs. In June, he quit Hawaii Five-0 after a salary dispute with CBS, as he had been seeking equal pay to the show’s stars, Alex O'Loughlin and Scott Caan. His departure, along with co-star Grace Park, left the show temporarily without Asian regulars.

David Harbour (Stranger Things) is starring in Hellboy, which reboots the franchise centered on the demonic hero from the Mignola comic books. Game of Thrones director Neil Marshall is helming the project.

Kim has been acting since the early 1990s and has appeared on shows such as ER and Angel. He became a known quantity and star thanks to his breakout work on ABC’s Lost, and co-starred on Five-O since it launched in 2010.
DDK is a fine casting. Still think it would be cool of the producers to give Skrein another part in the movie.

First look of David Harbour as Hellboy holy shit he looks like Ron Pearlman with Longer Hair woah. Kim also part of the project things are really shaping up for the better. Now I said before hand like wtf why not use Pearlman, but this news is turning me to the other side.

I'm against race/gender changes in movies, make a new character for that. Tho if you do it then all bets are off, either it's all up for changes or none of it is. This lazy type of casting doesn't fool anyone.

Also Hellboy looks great!

Yet more proof gays run Hollywood.

I'm not sure why they're making Hellboy look like this, but I'm still totally on board this movie.

I mean I know physicality is part of what Hellboy does. He has superhuman strength. But let's be real this is a total beefcake shot lol.
