The FT also reported that, when African-American actor Terrence Howard was replaced by African American actor Don Cheadle in the role of  Colonel Jim Rhodes for Iron Man 2, ”Perlmutter apparently told Mr. Mooney the change cut costs. He allegedly added words to the effect that no one would notice because black people ‘look the same’,”  Garraghan wrote. A Marvel spokesperson told the FT in a statement: “Mr. Perlmutter and all of Marvel have a long record of diversity in the workplace and on movie sets around the world as evidenced by both Mr. Perlmutter’s own history and Marvel’s management team.”

Perlmutter is the guy basically in charge of Marvel, just fyi. And this is from an article titled Disney And Marvel Do Damage Control After Media Scrutiny Of Big Boss Ike Perlmutter.

Gee I wonder why we’re not getting a Black Panther movie?? (Also this article is basically about three black ladies who were apparently basically forced out of the company because of this douche, who’s a major shareholder now).

    Oh Lord. My sister and I snarked about this when they changed Rhodey. As usual, reality outweighs satire.
