I don't think I can agree with this. If you look into the arts, there are all sorts of modern adaptations of original characters and stories. Some work, some don't. Bram Stoker published Dracula in 1897, but how many incarnations/adaptations of the character/story have we seen over the decades? Are we to say we should honor Stoker by sticking with his version of a bloodthirsty immortal? I hope not, because I loved Blade and Underworld.

blade and underworld are great! and they are new themes on the old story, which is great. would i want Blade to be white in a sequel? no of course not because the story has been ESTABLISHED with Blade as a bad ass Black vampire killer
its not the point of squelching new themes, it is the point that once they are established and a hit, WHY change them for this purpose except to throw identity politics in your face?
that becomes annoying.
