L’inclusiveness in Hollywood it is a buzzword, and condemning it is practically instinctive action on socialeven if only with an emoticon: in this round it was the director’s turn (again). James Gunn deal with this kind of process, for Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 3. he villain High Evolutionary is played by the black actor Chukwudi Iwujitherefore with different features from those known by Marvel fans since 1966. Assuming that the character has had in the comics various aspectsalso with “skin” of a very unnatural color, in this case Iwuju is also a renowned actor of the Royal Shakespeare Company…and the criticism has backfired on the fan who uttered it. Gunn snapped back at him.

I chose the best actor, period, and there best person for the role. I don’t give a fuck aboutethnicity by Chukwudi Iwuji, so stop it with these racist assumptions about WHY it was chosen. And by the way, he plays a guy who was almost always viola.
