The Exact Danny Rand Race Bending Truth
Since for some reason my Twitter retweets aren’t working, I’m posting the exact truth about this whole Danny Rand thing as tweeted by my good bud & fellow Captain Marvel lover, @CaptainMarvelTalk.
If they had cast an Asian actor, they’d have lost before they began. Danny Rand being white is a core element to the character for the reason that this makes him an outsider in a foreign land before he returns home. If you made him Asian, it would not have had the fish out of water experience so vital to the character’s mythology. It just would be a different story and character altogether.
And if you want to read my thoughts on race bending, here they are.
