    Wasn’t Rosario Dawson originally going to be Cecelia, or am I remembering that wrong?

    You remember correctly. No official reason was given for the Dawson/Braga swap but back channels and rumors were that there was some studio conflict behind the scenes that resulted in nixing Dawson’s participation as retaliation.

    Pretty sure most people don't care about the casting choices.

    I wonder if it has anything to do with these recent allegations against Rosario for being transphobic. Or maybe that occurred way after Rosario left the film.

    Wrong, and at this point if they try to release a movie with two whitewashed black characters it'll catch fire.

    When has a movie ever been sunk by whitewashing?

    I knew someone would bring this one up. THIS WASN'T WHITEWASHING. In the original source material the character frequently used Caucasian bodies, and Motoko Kusanagi wasn't even the character's original name. Hell, the creator (who is Japanese) HIMSELF outright denied that it was.

    If it was sunk by anything, it was the fact it was simply a meh movie all around on top of a lot of ignorance ABOUT the source material.
    Still hoping for that Helix Reunion...

    TBH all the films I’ve seen from that list were mediocre and bland anyway.

    Be that as it may, the movie still performed poorly and suffered from bad press because of the viewpoint that whitewashing was afoot. Do you think comic fans who are upset with Sunspot and Cecilia's casting in this movie are ignorant of the source material? If not, I'm not sure what your point is here.

    I'm sure, none of them looked particularly good even beyond the whitewashing. I did see Ghost in the Shell, I thought it was very mediocre. Could an Asian lead actress have saved it? I guess we'll never know.

    I highly doubt those films did poorly bc of the casting choices.
