So, reading Rich Johnston’s comics gossip page, I found out that Kerry Washington has been cast as Ben Grimm’s love interest Alicia Masters for the Fantastic Four movie. Get ready for complaints of “bu-bu-bu-but she’s black!!!” from the usual open-minded suspects on your favorite comic book message boards. (cf. the Daredevil movie, the new Firestorm series.)

EDIT: Here’s the very beginnings of one such discussion to start you off, though to be fair, they’re more upset about the Thing make-up. (So far, it looks like my July 7th posting about the Jae Lee version of the Thing reflecting the character’s appearance in the movie may have been right, assuming this isn’t some kind of early stage of Ben Grimm’s transformation.)
