I’m sure everyone’s heard about it by now, but I wanted to hear what CH readers think about this and feature Scarlett Johansson on Cosplay Holic too.
For me, I’m not that upset that she’s portraying Major Kusanagi in the Hollywood adaptation. From this first look, I’m actually pretty excited about this film. I am wondering why they didn’t hire an Asian actress to play the Major’s role, but at the same time, Major Kusanagi always felt like a tall, heavy individual to me. She’s half-cyborg after all, and I’m thinking Asian actresses standing side-by-side with other Caucasian actors might make her look petite? Maybe?
Then again, with that Dragon Ball Movie fiasco, I guess I can understand where the haters are coming from. Hopefully, Hollywood has learned from their mistake? At least we have Snow White and the Huntsman’s director, Rupert Sanders behind the scenes.
For now, I guess we can only wait and see for the 31st of March 2017 release.
