Lately, I have been hearing about the upcoming movie Ghost in a shell that is coming out next year and I heard about Scarlett Johansson going to play as the main character, Motoko Kusanagi. I love the anime ever since I was a kid and I still love it to this day and to hear that they are going to make a movie of it, I was really excited and looking forward to watching it, I just hope they don’t fuck it up just like what they did to Dragonball.
Somehow, alot of people don’t like the fact that Scarlett Johansson will be playing as the lead character. Their reason is because the character is supposed to be Asian and not American. They are calling this whitewashing. If you don’t know what it is, whitewashing is when you use a American actor/actress to play a nonwhite character. For example: Motoko Kusanagi is a Japanese character being portrayed by a white actress when its supposed to be a Asian playing as Motoko.
My view on this is that it doesn’t fucking matter the actress is white, Asian, or a fucking clone, as long as the actress can portray the character well and act good, that is the most important thing and thats what should count when it comes to this movie. Another thing that is important is that they direct the movie right, the last thing we want is another live action anime movie being fucked over and not being like the anime. Once again, as long as Scarlett Johansson can portray as the character good and that the director does not fuck up the movie, that’s all we and the people making a fuss about it being whitewashing should care about. I’m confident that she would do a great job, I just hope that she wears that same one piece swimsuit-like clothes that Motoko Kusanagi wore in season 1 in the anime.Scarlett Johansson would look so hot if she wore that and would be another reason for me to watch this movie when it comes out.
People that are complaining about this and calling it whitewashing, stop wasting your time on this and just hope the movie comes out good. Scarlett Johansson is perfect for the movie. I don’t know who else would be a good candidate for the movie.
I hope that you guys enjoyed this article. Make sure you leave a comment and tell me what you think about this and how do you feel about the making of the movie and the sexy Scarlett Johansson.
