When it was first announced that Hollywood was going to bring us a live action adaptation of Ghost in the Shell, there were millions of excited fans around the world, who had become big fans of the franchise over the years. However, before it had even been decided who would play the lead role in the Ghost in the Shell movie, many fans were worried that Hollywood would do what it always does and cast a white actress in the role.
These fans were eager to see an Asian actress starring in the lead role, so when it was announced that Hollywood superstar Scarlett Johansson had been cast in the lead role for the Ghost in the Shell movie, these fans were understandably disappointed. Since then, Scarlett herself has even come out to discuss her casting in the role, while fans have been constantly arguing about whether she is right for the role.
Well, the first Ghost in the Shell trailer has been out for a few days now and it has been interesting to see who the fans have reacted to it. While some fans have been overly critical of the trailer and Scarlett Johansson, there have actually been some fans of the franchise, who were initially doubters of the cast, who have now admitted to having been won over by the trailer.
One such fan praised, "I was very critical of Scarlett Johansson as the Major in the Ghost in the Shell film and was close to not going to see the movie. But I have just seen the Ghost in the Shell trailer and I have to admit that I was worried for nothing, as it looks like it really is going to be an impressive movie, and Scarlet looks like she was the right choice after all."
Ghost in the Shell is set to hit the big screen on March 31, 2017 in both the US and the UK.
