Fei Long is apparently no more.

 According to a composer at Capcom, Fei long will no longer be a part of Street Fighter due to issues with Bruce Lee's family. Apparently, Lee's family don't want comedic characters resembling Bruce. I don't even know what's comedic about Fei Long... Hell, Fei Long is one of the most respectful Bruce Lee clones in videogames.

The ending is a tribute to the greatness of not only Bruce, but Brandon too...

With that said, this whole issue can be used to revamp Fei Long visually:

Have Fei Long's latest movie be a flop, because of Long's inability of stepping out of The great One's shadow. Now with no new projects due to him being "canceled", Fei Long is on a quest to find himself. To look beyond the persona that tried to "Embody the Great One's Legacy" and find the Real Fei Long. He felt inspired by a quote from the Great One himself.

Always be yourself and have faith in yourself. Do not go out and look for a successful personality and try to duplicate it. – Bruce Lee

This quote sends Fei Long on his quest. He will fond his truth in the purest way possible, through Martial Arts.  Where will this new journey lead him? I don't know. That would be up to Capcom. There is no need to cancel Fei Long.

Update: Lee's family debunked the Capcom composer.

They have not tried to "Ban Fei Long"... good!
