correction [X-Men First Class]

Soooo, in my rant-fest about the latest X-Men movie, I mentioned the ethnicities of certain characters. While I didn't call her out by name, I was referring to the pixie chick with wings that spits fireballs when I said "Latina mutant".

Well, it turns out that I was wrong--in 'real' life, anyway... the character officially listed as Tempest/Angel Salvadore is actually "African-American". Zoe Kravitz is the daughter of [literal] rockstar Lenny Kravitz and Cosby Show darling, Lisa Bonet. Who knew?!

Judging by the surname Salvadore, she just may have been cast to play a Latina character. Either way, I just thought this was something worth mentioning.
