After being cast as superhero Johnny Storm - a character originally written as having blonde hair and blue eyes - a number of fans took to the internet to complain that the casting was not true to the comic books.
Jordan has responded by writing an open letter for Entertainment Weekly, in which he says that people should accept that the world is now more diverse than it was when the comics were written.
"It used to bother me, but it doesn't anymore," he says. "I can see everybody's perspective, and I know I can't ask the audience to forget 50 years of comic books. But the world is a little more diverse in 2015 than when the Fantastic Four comic first came out in 1961.

In Defence Of... Ben Affleck's Daredevil
23 May 2015 1:00 AM, PDT
The critical and commercial success of Marvel's Netflix show has given the character of Daredevil a new lease of life, with a confirmed second series, a co-lead spot in the upcoming super-team show The Defenders and a possibility that the character could one day make an appearance in the wider Marvel Cinematic Universe. With that in mind, it's time to re-appraise the character's first big-screen outing – writer-director Mark Steven Johnson's Daredevil, starring Ben Affleck. Is it really as bad as its reputation suggests?
Released in 2003 (the same year as Ang Lee's Hulk and Bryan Singer's X2, though it was first out of the gate), Daredevil took more than $102 million at the Us box office and just $76 million outside the Us, for a worldwide total of $179 million.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan: From Bollywood royalty to queen of Cannes
22 May 2015 2:00 PM, PDT
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has taken over Cannes. The word on the Croisette is that the world's most beautiful woman is in town, and everyone wants to get a glimpse of her.
The locals lining up against the barriers of the red carpet outside the Palais des Festivals peer into the glittering world of the stars who descend en masse on their otherwise sleepy, seaside town. They tell me in their lilting French accents: "We don't know much about Bollywood, but we've come to see the beautiful woman from India, Aishwarya."
They may not have seen her movies, but the French people know and love Aishwarya and have embraced her as their own. Cannes has been unfaltering in waging a love affair with Aishwarya that has lasted 13 years, and today that romance is in full bloom. When she takes to the red carpet, it's as if the whole city has come to a standstill. »
