    Shame on the New Mutants producers and directors for casting this guy to play Sunspot, who’s an Afro-Brazilian. It’s very insulting when they could’ve gotten Alfred Enoch or someone who’s actually of African descent with dark skin. Smh

      I know, they just casted a Eurocentric pretty boy. Alfred Enoch mother is from Brazil, but her ancestors are from Barbados. Also, he’s too old to be playing a teenager since he’s 32. There’s surely other Afro or Pardo Brazilan actors that could’ve played Sunspot. But finding one that speaks proficient English is the problem.
