If Gary Oldman was black, it wouldn’t make the role any worse, imo. And if that prevented Gary Oldman from getting the role, it’d be a damn shame.

I guess it’s cool that he also looks like he is from the comics but that’s just not what makes his performance great in any way.

It’s fine to make things as accurate as possible, until it becomes a detriment. That’s why I take some contention when the look of the actor is treated with such high priority. Then you’re placing accuracy above quality.

You’re not always going to get the best of all worlds just because TDK did with Gary Oldman. Sometimes you have to make a choice and bet on the best actor available to you.
Why can't it be both? You act like you're forced to choose between one or the other. Gary Oldman both LOOKED the part and PLAYED the part perfectly based on that version of the story.

In fact have there been any examples of people looking exactly like the characters they portray but sucking horribly in terms of their acting ability or poor writing of the movie or show they're in?
