The casting of Michael Jordan in the FANTASTIC 4 reboot as the Human Torch is a bit odd, but not unusual. It's been done before, in other comic book films (in fact Alicia Masters was white in the comics but played by Kerry Washington in the films). Which would you say was your favourite comic-book performance of a black actor in (what would usually be) a white role? Billy Dee Williams as Harvey Dent - that was weird, it felt more like star power than talent for the role. But Williams was contracted to become Two-Face in a future sequel; it never came to pass though. Michael Clarke Duncan as the Kingpin - even though most of that film was mediocre, Duncan stands out above the rest (pun intended) as the menacing crime boss and antagonist. Idris Elba as Heimdall - despite Heimdall being Sif's sister in the comics and myth, the sentinel of Asgard is played to absolute perfection by freaking Luther. Kerry Washington as Alicia Masters - she was nice. There wasn't too much to her character though. Sam L Jackson as Nick Fury - I'm not sure if this should be in the poll, because Fury was black in the Marvel Ultimates. But I'm putting him in for the sake of being comprehensive (in any case he was great, and did better than the Knight Rider of Baywatch did in the role). Laurence Fishburne as Perry White - he was solid in the role as the Daily Planet editor. He didn't do too much, but then White doesn't get a lot to do in the Superman saga. For me it's a tie between Fishburne, Duncan and Elba. But I'd have to go with Elba. Even though there were people protesting his casting, he shut them up with a wonderful, supporting yet eye-catching performance as the Bifrost guard who watches over Asgard and Asgardians.
