Michelle Rodriguez was recently asked if she would consider playing the role of Green Lantern in a new retake film for DC Comics. She responded by saying she thought it was ridiculous for minorities to be cast as white superhero characters.
“Stop stealing all the white people’s superheroes,” she said. “Make up your own.”

She further elaborated that we should develop new minority characters rather than adapting existing characters to be played by minorities. Click here to read TheCelebrityCafe article.
