I had a lot more sympathy for the petition against the casting of Ben Affleck as Batman in the upcoming Batty vs Supes movie than I do for the new petition against the casting announcement for the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey movie. Perhaps only because the petition against Affleck’s casting was better written, which makes me a snob, I know.
At least these two were posted on change.org. The people who post such petitions on government petition sites should be inundated with floors full of legos whenever they take off their shoes.
The last two times I refused to go see a movie because of miscasting was systemic racebending, with Cloud Atlas and Airbender: The Last Avatar. I’m trying to remember the last movie I refused to go see because of one favourite character or the OTP being irredeemably miscast in my opinion, and I’ve probably blogged such a thing several times over the years, but right now I’m coming up blank.
How about you? Have you signed any petitions to Hollywood? Do you think you ever might?
