Michael B. Jordan is a beautiful human….torch.
Jordan will play Johnny Storm/Human Torch in the relaunch of the Fantastic Four movie franchise, which frankly it really needed. There has been an uproar from many comic

“BUT HOW CAN THEY BE RELATED IF HE’S BLACK AND SHE’S WHITE?!?”
I was going to write this long post about historical racism and the ridiculous fear that some racist people have about having their historically white roles being replaced by African Americans and thereby having their “power taken away” , but I think I will save that for this weekend’s podcast and you can just enjoy the cutie pie above!
