The director of the fantastic film “The Gods of Egypt” apologized to the viewers for the white actors playing the main characters of his film.
Alex Proyas noted that the film crew is solely responsible for the fact that the final casting does not reflect "the diversity of cultures at the time and place where the events of the film unfold". It should be noted that the tape takes place in ancient Egypt, and the main roles in the film were performed by Gerard Butler, Geoffrey Rush, Nikolai Koster-Waldau and Elodie Yung.
After the trailer of the film was released in mid-November, which will be released on screens in 2016, users of social networks have fallen upon the creators of the film with criticism. For example, the actress and singer Bette Midler said that the Egyptians were never white and advised the authors of the “Gods of Egypt” to learn geography.
