Sure they can, only if a white guy can be made up in black face for a movie. The Racists Al Sharpton and Jessee Jackson would be fine with that im sure

Already been done by Robert Downey Jr in Tropic Thunder. Al and Jesse said nothing and the movie is pretty funny.

Since there is such thing as a channel for black people (BET) than i think its ok to use a white guy and stay accurate to the comic books and enroll a white guy for this part. There is nothing racist about being accurate. George washington should be played by a white man...i would protest if they didnt since it is a fact that he is white. Read the comics of thor and you will see he is white.

I saw something on TV the other day, a preview during commercials, about the movie and it looked pretty clear that the lead actor playing Thor is a white man. By the gods! But I don't know about the size of his magic hammer. Hopefully he knows how to wield it.

Dude, in all honesty, how are you going to compare a REAL American hero like George Washington, to a fake Nortic god?

The dumb bastards also casted 5'7", 150 lb. Tom Cruise as 6'4", 220 lb. Jack Reacher. This ruined the movie for everyone who had read any of the books.
