I am loving this meme people are doing where casts of characters are being re-imagined chromatically:
+ handyhunter started it here,
+ bossymarmalade did some X-Men recasting
+ and liviapenn kept going with Spider-Man and the Fantastic Four.
I got sort of inspired to play off this and re-imagined the cast of Star Trek XI as women.
Let's start off with Zoë as Kirk. (And she's still also a linguistic badass, because I can't imagine anyone else as Uhura. Don't ask me how it works, take my word for it, it's grrrreat.)
Queen Latifah as Pike.
Oprah as Admiral Barnett.
Brook Antoinette Mahealani as Sulu.
Wanda Sykes as McCoy.
Kathy Najimy as Scotty.
Judith Scott as Spock.
Nichelle Nichols as Spock Prime, just for extra confusion.
Frida Kahlo as Amanda.
Indira Gandhi as Sarek.
Margaret Cho as Nero.
Jasmine Guy as George Kirk.
Tiaré Scanda as Winona Kirk.
And, while I'm at it, maybe I'll do a few DC people, too.
Jeanine Garofalo as Clark Kent.
Lenora Crichlow as Jimmy Olsen.
Rigoberta Menchu as Perry White.
Tracie Thoms as Robin.
Nisha Ganatra as Nightwing.
Lucy Liu as Harley. (I aaaalmost wanted to make her Kirk. I could totally see her sitting in the chair.)
Mizuo Peck as Ivy.
Rosario Dawson as Catwoman. The way she works a catsuit, y'all, nnngh.
I feel like Gina Torres as Wonder Woman is EXCEEDINGLY obvious.
Also, I wanted to cast Elaine Miles, Vienna Teng and Ashley Judd but came up blank, but I'm including them anyway because they are ♥.
Couldn't seem to come up with a good Batman or Joker candidates. Ideas?
