Don't ever piss off a bunch of comics fansIf ever there was a subculture near impossible to please, comics fanboys are it. They know every origin story, limited-series run and guest artist. And you can bet your ass they have a particular vision of who should star in whatever superhero movie Hollywood produces next week. Granted, not every casting decision is the right one. Just look at January Jones in X-Men: First Class. Or Topher Grace in Spider-Man 3. Or literally everyone in Batman and Robin. But, sometimes, the level of fanboy anger aimed at comic movie casting is just plain unwarranted. And in cases where an actor simply doesn’t look like the character they’re playing, it’s stupid. So here are the casting decisions that have set off the worst cases of collective nerd-rage.
