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:
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.
