Twitter Wants Marvel's Miles Morales, Hispanic/Black Teen, for Spider Man
Since news broke that Spider Man would be rejoining the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe), Twitter has exploded with thoughts about casting.
It was revealed that Andrew Garfield would not be reprising his role as Peter Parker, which prompted Twitter users to plead for Miles Morales. Miles is a Marvel character of black and Hispanic descent who takes over for Peter Parker as Spider Man in the later comics. Miles is featured in Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors series, and is voiced by Donald Glover.

Miles Morales could open a huge door for them. Even folks that complain would still see it. All folks really care about is the suit

No, really, @Marvel, Miles Morales best be your new Spidey. Peter had his chance. (And then get back F4 and X-Men and make it a real party.)

The only way I will accept Spider-Man moving Black Panther and Captain Marvel release dates back is if it's Miles Morales.

I love Peter Parker, I do. I grew up with him. But we've seen his story. A lot. Miles Morales would be something different.

Now, wouldn't Miles Morales be a good way to avoid to the awkward recasting scenario?
