Well The Blade franchise had a Black lead and had no problems

Matrix Had a majority of Blacks in lead roles as well and those movies did extremely well. All that has to be done is to make sure an exceptional movie is made and the movie will do fine.

I think the movie should concentrate more on the special effects than anything. TRansformers was not a great plot or script, as well as Independence Day, but the special effects were tremendous and they both did well in the box office in the end.
