Gods of Egypt Recast by Valor1387 Gods of Egypt Recast by Valor1387
Not gonna lie, I enjoyed the movie for popcorn fun, but it just annoyed me how it didn't feel like it took place in Egypt, but just like another Greek mythology based movie, and a large part of it had to do with the white wash casting that went on with the movie. All the actors did fine, but I honestly feel like there were better alternative actors of color that could have done the roles without insulting peoples' ethnicities and race.
I'm not gonna get into some whole big race debate or whatever, I'm just gonna share the recasts I did in this photomanip.

Idris Elba as Horus
Denzel Washington as Set
Halle Berry as Hathor
Rami Malek as Bek
Tessa Thompson as Zaya
Samuel L. Jackson as Ra

Also threw in Bianca Lawson as one of the snake rider hench-wenches whose name I forgot.

I'm not even sure why people concern themselves with what over paid actor should play what role. Really. It seems petty and a waste of energy. It's a movie based on a fake religion with no actual historical events. If it was, then sure, cast all black, other then that, who cares!?

Plenty of people cared, it's why the movie was a box office bomb. And not sure why you question concern when you seem to be concerned enough to post a comment from the opposite end yet claim that others are being petty an wasting energy. Use that so-called pettiness and wasted energy and educate yourself.

Are you referring to Rami Malek? An American-Egyptian actor? Light skinned does not equal white. May wanna check your sources.
