Michael B. Jordan Steps Out as 'Fantastic Four' Director Responds to Casting Criticism

Michael B. Jordan is nothing short of swoonworthy while hitting up the Moet Nectar Imperial Rose x Marcelo Burlon Launch Event on Wednesday night (June 3) in New York City.

The 28-year-old actor was joined by Solange Knowles and Orange is the New Black‘s Dascha Polanco.

Michael‘s Fantastic Four director Josh Trank recently responded some criticism about the casting.

“I knew it was going to get ugly,” Josh said (via L.A. Times). “I get it. I have a lot of friends who are older than me who are comic fans and it’s really hard for them to be on board with a change like that. Fantastic Four has been theirs for longer than I’ve been alive. It hasn’t been mine.”

    Then don’t cast a nig for a white role.

    That is like casting a white actor to play martin luther king jr or malcolm x.
