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.

They always accused her of having inherited the worst bits of her mother. It was always her mother’s fault; nobody seemed able to imagine George Weasley being as driven as Angelina Johnson, never mind the fact that George had opened his own shop in Diagon Alley without even finishing school. No, Roxanne’s personality, they decided was a hand-me-down of Angelina’s. Fred (the second, named after their dead uncle) was the peacekeeper, the quiet one, the unassuming one. Roxanne was the spark in the tinderbox. The Slytherin foil to her Hufflepuff brother. She grew up accepting the comparisons to her mother and father until it occured to her, sitting her O.W.Ls: why were their lives always measured by their parents’ and not by their own merits?
