4 Characters That We’d Like to See Melanated

black spiderWith news of actress/model Zendaya Coleman being chosen to be the first black actress to play the role of Mary Jane Watson in the upcoming reprisal of Marvel’s Spiderman, we’re thinking that there are some other roles we’d like to see being played by black actors/actresses in possible movie remakes.

Here are four fictional movie characters that we’d like to see played by black actors/actresses.


1: Rapunzel

We’d absolutely love to see the 2010 movie Tangled remade with a black Rapunzel, never-ending locs and all.


2: Spider Man

We have a black Mary Jane, so why not finish it off with a black Peter Parker?

Our actor of choice for the role? Romeo Miller.

3: Frank Farmer

Secret service agent Frank Farmer in The Bodyguard would look great in a chocolate hue. The actor we have in mind for the role is none other than English show-stopper Idris Elba.


4: BeetleJuice

Everyone loves the 1988 classic BeetleJuice, and while Michael Keaton played the role of the hilarious and tricky ghost excellently, we think comedic actors Marlon Wayans and/or Jamie Foxx would certainly do it justice.
