Regé-Jean Page Finally Responded To The Reports That He Wasn't Cast As Superman's Grandfather Because He's Black
"Hearing about these conversations hurts no less now than it did back then."
Apparently, the creators of the Krypton TV series wanted some nontraditional casting, and Regé-Jean auditioned for the role of Superman's grandfather.
According to multiple sources, Geoff Johns — former co-chairman of DC Films — allegedly shot down the idea because Superman “could not have a Black grandfather.”
Well, Regé-Jean himself responded to this whole mess today.
"The clarifications almost hurt more, tbh," the actor continued.
"Still just doing my thing. Still we do the work."
"We still fly," he concluded.
Wow. Such an uplifting response to such an ugly situation. Sending you so much love and light, Regé-Jean!
