Skrein responded to backlash against his casting in the Hellboy franchise reboot by relinquishing the role he had been cast in. The 34-year-old British actor has earlier tweeted that he would be playing Major Ben Daimio, a character that was Asian American in Mike Mignola’s “Hellboy” comics. The news was met with complaints that Hollywood was once again “whitewashing” an Asian character.
Will Smith (as Officer Daryl Ward) says to his partner Joel Edgerton (Officer Nick Jakoby) in a scene from the science fiction movie Bright, one of the first major science fiction films to be released exclusively to the streaming format.
Everyone has an Angel. A Guardian who watches over us. We can't know what form they'll take. One day, old man. Next day, little girl.

Its everyone of us who holds power over the world we create.
