Ganke_(Earth-1610)

With hopes, Carrie Underwood will never play Mulan. But it’s not too far out of the question, with Marvel yet again whitewashing a beloved Asian American character.

Ganke Lee, that overweight, Korean kid who’s best friend to Miles Morales aka Spider-Man, will be played by the non-Korean, non-overweight actor, Michael Barbieri. Who is he? I could give a fuck because he’s neither overweight nor Korean-American.

Holy Macaroli is right. Marvel must be stuck in a time loop where’s there’s only white people.

Korean American Amadeus Cho, currently the Hulk in the comic books, was played by Martin Starr.

Daniel Rand aka Iron Fist is a blonde dude but was a great opportunity to prove that the Marvel Cinematic Universe is not Monochromatic. Alas, he’s white in the Netflix series.

There hasn’t been any news on the Live-Action Mulan film. Many people think Vanessa Hudgens is the likely candidate. Phillipa Soo, nominated for a Tony for Hamilton, has just been cast as a voice in Moana. But the way things are going: Stay tuned for “Reflection” sung with a Southern twang.
