It’s nice to see black heroes finally getting their own movies.

On gossip, has there been any pushback against the only Egyptian super I can think of being played by a Pacific Islander? I remember hearing people were mad that an actual Egyptian was playing an Egyptian some time ago and were recently mad about a Hellenistic Egyptian being played by a Semitic/Levantine person, but haven’t heard anything on this casting.
