Marvel Casts “White, Straight, Male” as Spiderman

Spiderman Slider
True to their leaked emails, Marvel has cast Spiderman as white, straight, male.

Those of us hoping to see Miles Morales might be waiting for a very long time. Despite the comic books introducing Miles Morales as Peter Parker’s replacement, leaked emails between Sony Entertainment and Marvel show a contract with strict guidelines in place regarding exactly what the character should be like:

Spiderman Doc 1

Spiderman Doc 2

The name Peter Parker as a stipulation also means Miles might not be able to take to the helm at all, which is a damn shame. In the meantime, Tom Holland will be playing the famed webslinger. He’s the third person to play Spiderman in the past 10 years.


Just what we needed. Really.
