Michelle Rodriguez on that white ‘superhero thing’

Michelle Rodriguez challenges racial minorities in Hollywood to "develop their own mythology" instead of recasting traditionally white characters.

I think that people should stop being lazy and that people should make an effort in Hollywood to develop their own mythology.”

The comments come after Rodriguez was caught on camera saying that minorities should stop “stealing” “white people’s superheroes.” Rodriguez, who identifies as Puerto Rican and Dominican, was walking to her car when TMZ asked her about rumors that she might be cast in the traditionally male role of superhero Green Lantern, last played by Ryan Reynolds.

“It’s time to stop, stop trying to take what’s already there and try to fit a culture into it. I think it’s time for us to write our own mythology and our own story.”
