So because Michael Jackson is (was) black, everyone with that last-name is black?
lolz? In the book it says that he is of "African-American descent, in the town of York" <-- verbose

Anyway, awesome that a movie is coming out, is there a link to a trailer?

Aw crap. That's not what I meant. It's like they way Percy acted and his name along with it, it was kind of easier for me to envision him as a young black boy, than anything else. That's not what I meant at all....:23:


@Kaezan

Really? It said that?

It shows his face on the cover of the books? I think I only read the first and second .__.

I had the 3rd on hold but the school year ended, and I didnt get to read it.

It seemed pretty weird imagining Percy being black, well, im not trying to sound racis but, umm, gahh! I dont want to get in deep shizz, whaever.

Sooo, awesome the movie is comig out :D

They don't have to show his face. I'm pretty sure if his arms and neck are white, they face would follow through with that.

I'm actually pretty positive he's white right about now. D:

Maybe he ahd a tan 8D

I saw the trailer....kinda looking forward to it :) Read the first book only, but I wanna read the rest of the series. But I thought Percy was white??? On the front of the first book, he seems fair skinned.

Cool.

Never heard of the books/film

But Steve Coogan playing Hades?
Just seems a bit odd.
Hades in the book is odd.

Just looked it up.
Green eyes.
White.
Definitely white, but having green eyes doesnt necessarily mean it is so.
