I personally do not see sense in it, I mean, they can create original series/character and put any person they want, I personally think that remake or not, if you have a source, should be more faithful possible, without putting politics in the middle, exchange consecrated characters only by ideological bias does not seem to be an good idea, I may be wrong but I doubt they'll profit as much as if they had done as close as possible to the source on which it was based, which leads me to believe that it is not so much for money, but worse, seem to be hiring by color or sex, if it were the opposite would be accused of "sexist " or "racism" and hundreds of other terms, without mentioning that if you exchange a woman for a man or a black for a white one will call you the terms above, for me it's hypocrisy.
