Scarlett Johansson will Play a Major Role in the “Ghost in the shell” Movie – but fans are not happy with it.

A few days ago, footage of the movie adaptation of popular anime series “Ghost in the shell” was released. While many were thrilled by it, many were not amused with the casting of Scarlett Johansson.

Johansson will play the role of Motoko Kusanagi in the anime/manga, a human-cyborg hybrid detective devoted to stopping the most dangerous criminals and extremists.

While we know that Johansson can play a good female super-agent, many decry that casting her for Makoto’s role as “Whitewashing” where American actors are cast for non-American roles.

Do you think Johansson is fit for the character? If no, who do you think should play the role?
