Did Ridley Scott’s “Exodus” movie give the Sphinx a white/European makeover?

The backlash against Ridley Scott’s Exodus is gathering momentum. After Noah’s mixed reception earlier this year, more and more people are sick of seeing movies with “whitewashed” casts: White actors representing historical figures who almost certainly were not white.

The latest accusation of Exodus whitewashing relates to someone who technically isn’t even a character: the Sphinx.

The likeliest explanation is that the sculpture in this picture is not the Sphinx, but is in fact a statue of Ramses. This means that it would have been based on actor Joel Edgerton’s face. 

Unfortunately, this just makes the whitewashed casting even more blatant, because real statues of Ramses II simply do not look like that. So while Exodus may not have made a “white version” of the Sphinx, Egyptian culture is still being erased and rewritten to fit in with the film’s predominantly white cast of actors.

Top five favorite book villains? Top five favorite movie villains?

Book villains:

  1. Marisa Coulter (His Dark Materials)
  2. The other mother (Coraline)
  3. President Coin (The Hunger Games)
  4. The Darkling (The Grisha Trilogy)
  5. von Linden (Code Name Verity)

I’m picky when it comes to villains, so for a lot of these choices, I’m more into how the narrative treats them than anything else. Like the way the narrative of CNV treated von Linden - emphasising his daughter’s loss instead of trying to paint him as a halfway-decent man after his death (a la Snape). And how the narrative of HDM treated Mrs. Coulter as a complex, multifaceted woman.

And if you don’t mind, I’m going to skip movie villains, because I can’t think of enough!

Lirael in death, facing the ninth gate.
I realized too late in the game how much this ended up looking like Laura Toltons’s paintings.  I’ll remember to change up the color scheme for any others drawings i do :P
