    They needs to stop the Spiderman movies already. Enough. Geeze. And seriously, a black/Hispanic Spiderman? Really stupid. As always, the minorities need to screw everything up.

  • Teni Eliza

    I’d be all for Miles in an independent film. Have Peter for the Civil War film and when he gets his own film, transition to Miles.

  • ty8io

    no, stick with peter. damn, this hollywood “diversity” thing really pisses me off. you know, you are still racist even with a black spider man. or just stop making stand-alone spidey movies. get him into the avengers and deal with it

  • Dory Phore

    Peter Parker has been done to death. To keep it fresh, they want Miles Morales. I have spoken about this already.

  • guest

    For a more organic transition, have Peter hand the reigns over to Morales! Let Peter do Civil War, then, in the 2017 stand-a-lone film have him step down and make Morales the new Spider-Man. PS racist fanboys: Morales has been Spidey in the comics for some time now and will be for a long time…. Peter Parker’s been done on screen 5 too many times.

  • ceeza

    Miles Morales is a real character tho. not to mention His story line is currently written way better than the Peter Parker series..

  • cinematic

    been done with maquire already. there’s no rebooting that. they can do whatever. they gotta give it to morales. and how about the KINGPIN? that big bozo – gotta do in ‘white’. fits perfect. ;)

  • adnrepplad

    God already only 12 years ago the first Spiderman movie came out and now they are rebooting the franchise for a 3rd time? Garfield was good. Stupid to give him up. I hope to god they don’t make Spidey some nigor/spic like everyone is claiming to be. Whats next, a Nigor Harry Potter? Asian Frodo Baggins? Homosexual Batman ??Stupid Political Correctness. I will not support this crap.

  • adnrepplad

    No he is not better then the original Peter Parker. Just some half-breed trash to cater to political correctness.

  • adnrepplad

    They already made the Human Torch some Nigor. Even though in the comics he is the brother of the Invisible Woman. Stupidity at its finest.

  • Aloel96

    No one was complaining when Susan Storm was cast as a Latina in the first Fantastic Four movies… even though she was the sister of the Human Torch

  • guest

    white fanboys always find something to complain about, they’ll go see the movie anyways

  • Aloel96

    Lol true

  • REAL LIFE

    Generated market troll Twitter accounts want a negro Spiderman but no one else does, obviously. No negro. Keep Peter Parker AMERICAN!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Guest

    I hope Marvel makes Morales the new Spidey & Kanye West scores the film just to spite the haters lmao

  • mandyz

    So you don’t want any other race besides whites to do any movie roles or is it the characters for every beloved franchise only supposed to be white just cause the comics say so? Enlighten me cause it seems like you’re a white racist POS that doesn’t want other races to be represented in any movies. You do know that these characters in reality get old and don’t want to be a superhero anymore and somebody else takes over their job because they feel that it is their duty to keep up the hero’s legacy right? Race is irrelevant if the superhero wants to retire and give their duties to someone else and that somebody else can be of any fuckin race or religion. This has ZERO to do with political correctness, every race in this world does deserve equal representation in the media, I’m sorry if you don’t feel that way and have a backwards mentality to keep the whites happy.

  • AMERICA ONE

    Jessica Alba isn’t “Latina”, you race-hating niggor. She is American just like Susan Storm. STAY HOME IN BRITAIN WHERE YOU BELONG, YOU DYING FILTH POCKET APE TROLL, AND TAKE YOUR OBAMA BACK TO HIS HOME WITH YOU!!!!

  • mandyz

    The minorities screw up everything? Wtf did blacks, Hispanics, Asians, Indians, and mixed race people do to you to become Gerard Butthurt? LMFAO

  • guest

    Michael B Jordan is American too, Troll.

  • Basketball

    No, Jordan is a negro. Its true. Jordan is also a place in the negro world.

  • ceeza

    Ill reply like you aren’t a racist.. “half breed trash” loll.. peter parker in comic and movie form has been bad for awhile. no need to see Peters story retold, again. at least for a long while. i do think if possible Marvel should let Andrew Garfield do the Civil war film then hand it off to Miles for the solo reboot.. wasn’t Gairfields fault those films stunk. him and stone were the only ok parts.

  • guest

    Gerard Butthole probably didn’t say anything when that Exodus movie whitewashed the Egyptians.

  • mandyz

    As much as jessica doesn’t want to accept her Mexican heritage, she IS half Hispanic, especially if none of you fags want to consider MIchael B Jordan an American. Jessica is half Hispanic AMERICAN, MBJ is African AMERICAN. And if I need to show you dumbasses proof that jessica is half Hispanic, here’s her heritage from ethnicelebs:

    *Mexican (including Spanish, Indigenous Mexican / Mayan, and distant Sephardi Jewish) (father)
    *English, Danish, German, Welsh, Scottish, Scots-Irish (Northern Irish) (mother)

    White fanboys give Jessica a pass because she’s jerkoff material for them, very simple answer to their denial.

  • Aloel96

    Well, um, okay then, not sure why you just insulted me. Jessica Alba is the daughter of two Mexican immigrants which makes her technically a Latina.She also describes her family as a ‘Latin American family’ which, again means she’s technically a Latina even though she was born and raised in America. So, yes she is an American but she is of Mexican descent, once again meaning that is is technically a Latina. And if you would like to use you theory, isn’t Obama American? Even more so than Jessica Alba,since he is biracial. I have no problem saying that she is American but it was undeniable that she and the Human Torch were not of the same race… no matter how blonde here hair was dyed. And this is just an observation… It is also biology.

  • ceeza

    “technically a latina”? she’s 100% latina.. shes Mexican American..

  • ceeza

    both of her parents are mexican.. wheres the half part?

  • Aloel96

    I was just trying to break it down for AMERICA ONE

  • guest

    The 2005 FF even tried to make Jessica whiter smh.

  • FerCat

    You guys do realize that if they go with a black Spiderman Jaden Smith will get shoehorned in that role.

  • Living in a box

    Spoiler Alerts: In Captain America Civil War, Captain America dies and Falcon(Samuel Wilson) become the new Captain America. And Samuel Wilson is black man. I hope people won’t lose their mind when the movie is released.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QWScSWtG6IU

  • Jon M’Shulla

    Peter Parker is the only Spider Man.

    UU is crap.

  • Jon M’Shulla

    There is NO Marvin Morales.

  • Jon M’Shulla

    No. Cap does not die in Civil War. You have no idea what you are talking about.

    In the comics (not in Civil War though….which was about 10 years ago) Cap retired as Cap this year. He was aged by a villain. Sam took over. Steve Rogers will return as Cap.

    It might be interesting to you to know Sams’ Cap is a villain. :-)

  • Jon M’Shulla

    That is very scarry.

  • Jon M’Shulla

    No origin re-telling please….we all are bored with that!

  • TeamBella76

    How about giving us Peter Parker then maybe years from now give us Miles ! MARVEL DON’T CHANGE IT NOW THAT WE HAVE HIM !

  • TeamBella76

    No. They have Peter at Marvel give us that first then do a Miles film !

  • FerCat

    He would be getting first dibs.
    There’s kind of a dearth in the 20 something range for charismatic black actors.

  • DarkParadise

    I’m all for diversity. But seriously if they want Diversity they should follow what they did for the Fantastic Four and cast a person of Color as Peter Oarker. Because it is a much more powerful affect on diversity to have a POC in a role which is supposedly exclusively for white people. It tells us anyone could play any role no matter the litterary standards. So that’s my two cents on the matter.

    Either way…I want Alfred Enoch as Spider-Man the idea is too exciting NGL.

  • mandyz

    Her mother is not Mexican, don’t know where you got that info from. Her mother is Danish, her father is all Hispanic so Jess is only 50% Hispanic. Did you not read my last comment cause it explains her heritage very clearly. Jessica has explained it over and over again that her mother is not in any shape or form Mexican or Hispanic. At the end of the day, Jessica looks more Hispanic than European any given day and she was the worst casting for Susan Storm and I don’t mean that just because of her heritage, it’s cause of the fact that her terrible acting made Sue Storm look weak.

  • mandyz

    I know right, the super blond hair and bad quality blue contacts did absolutely nothing for her to look believably 100% white. Nope, it was a fail.

  • ceeza

    freudian slip

  • andnrepald

    There are certain roles only whites can play and certain roles blacks can play also. Sorry but roles like Peter Parker, Harry Potter, Frodo Baggins, Captain American all belong to White guys! Its not racist its the truth! You can’t have a black Peter Parker. You will be changing his entire charter and his specialness then. Same with Harry Potter or Frodo Baggins or Captain America. If you change their race, then lots of other things about them will change too! Yes it has everything to do with PC.
    We are more backwards in today’s society then ever before. Okay by your logic then, we should cast Tom Cruise or George Clooney to play Malcolm X or Mandela. It PC doens’t matter. Please no Nigors/half-breeds/spics playing white characters!

  • andnrepald

    The original Peter Parker is amazing. Miles whatever sucks. He is just there to cater to PC.
    Garfield and Maguire were excellent picks for playing Parker. I don’t think a Nigor would be suitable for Spidey.

  • anderppal

    And how did the 2005 and 2007 Fantastic four turn out? They sucked! This new one with Miles Teller and Kate Mara will also stink!
    Spider-Man is Marvels Golden boy. I don’t and I hope they don’t buy into this stupid political correctness and make him some Nigor/spic/half-breed trash.

  • anderppal

    Another reason why Spidey should not be some Nigor or biracial trash. You are opening doors to untalented brats of nepotism like the Smith kids! Oh I bet Jaden will definalty be chosen to play Spidey if they are choosing to make him a Nigor!

  • Aloel96

    What has how well the first fantastic four movies did have to do with what I said or the casting non-Caucasian actors? They are not asking to make him of another race, Miles Morales is of Black Hispanic descent, he is not ‘Nigor/spic/half-breed trash’ (and BTW, if by Nigor you mean black, that’s not only offensive but wrong not sure if you can spell it well, but a nigor is a Russian with dark skin… or so Urban Dictionary says).
    Some people just think it would be easier to bring in Miles Morales instead of recasting Spiderman since Andrew Garfield is not reprising his role.

  • guest

    Ok have you not been paying attention? Nobody wants a black Peter Parker, we want Miles Morales (the current Spider-Man in the Ultimates Universe). BTW your logic is ridiculous because you’re comparing Malcom X (a real person) to fictional characters. Usually in fiction, the race of a character is unimportant unless specified.

  • Redjester

    You do know that’s incredibly racist, right?

  • Redjester

    I’ll reply like you are racist… “half-breed trash”… Yep, that’s pretty racist.
