First Will Smith is a great actor n I think he should tons mre movies but he is no Cap. Bruce Willis wud have been perfect.Jackson was not cool as Fury, he just acted like his same character from Triple X, which wasn't that awe-inspiring.Turning long established White characters Black does not change past slights it just creates insults on top of insults. Instead of giving created or using established Strong Black characters they are giving the Blacks recycled characters. That's just an insult to them as well as all fans of these characters.If the want a strong Black Shield Rep then they should use G.W.Bridge.N what of the slight toward other minorities who are tired of Blacks getting all the special treatment.We should balance the scales. Lets appease the Asians n Woman at once n Cast Michelle Yeoh as the next Blade in a new Movie.I bet that wouldn't go over well with Black readers who support a Black Fury.And Marvel has been rubuking racism since the 60's so they have nothing to correct or make up for. And we been through this whole mess enough since the 80's when Legendary characters across the board were replaced by Black characters. Iron Man, Giant Man, Green Lantern, n Captain Marvel, covers most of them. N Captain Marvel also got the nick-name the Golden Avenger which used to be Iron Man's so she was a double whammy.These concepts are just all around insulting to Blacks, Whites, long-time fans and the other Minorities who feel slighted every time Blacks get this special treatment.N Finally, Special Treatment is not equality. Lets face it these days a Black Man born in the ghetto has every chance of rising up and become wealthy n powerful if he works hard n takes all the special treatment offered to him, whereas a White man will get no assistance n be trapped there. Racism is a two-way street n all this making up for the past is just perpetuating racism in more ways than one.

Will Smith is a great actor n I say the movies he makes the better. But Will Smith is no Cap. Bruce Willis would have been perfect as Cap. Jackson is not cool as Fury, he seems like he's just playing the same character he did in Triple X. If they wanted a strong Black character as their Shield Rep the should just use G.W. Bridge.When they change the race of a character then affirmative action has gone too far. And many Minorities are already upset because it's always the Blacks who get this special treatment.Lets Appease the Asians n Women at the same time n Make a new Blade Movie starring Michelle Yeoh as Blade.

Plus the fact that Samuel L. Jackson-Fury is far cooler than older 007 style-Fury (as cool as he is). And I agree Reilly28, Will Smith as Cap would have been good. At first I was all surprised and then I thought, that it'd be a good message to have a Black Captain America Leading the troops and beating up Nazis. The blond hair, blue eyed Captain is a good message to the Nazis too, just a different kind of message. On a related note it's too bad we probably won't see Isaiah Bradley (The Black Captain America) in a movie. Though maybe one of these years they could do a Young Avengers Movie.

You do not understand anything about race relations. The key factor is that his right-hand man was black, indicating a black man subordinate to a white man. Most superheroes were created in a racist time period, which leads to most of them being white. It only makes sense that they would remove this stipulation for modern times. I was totally okay with it and so should everyone else be when they originally had Will Smith as Captain America. It makes more sense anyways that a black man would be rejected by the army in the 1930s. Go Marvel for integration.

The more I think about it the more I can't stand this forced affirmative action Sam Jackson Ulitmate Black Fury into the multi-media verse. SHIELD has black Agent Gabriel who is like 616 WHITE Nick Fury's white-hand man and could have been used all this time to racially balance things out. This way you can have BOTH parties satisfied from both racial camps and the hadcore 616 zealots like myself won't &@$#&* to the heavens.
