that would have been okay when they made the first three man-spider movies cause those movies already raped to death his character with organics but their going to reboot it this time so DO it right this time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I really don't see how Spider-Man is tied to any particular race. Whereas Superman and to a lesser extent Batman are known for being a certain type: handsome, 30-something, dark-haired Caucasian males Spider-Man really isn't defined by his appearance, in fact most people in the comic book world don't even know what he looks like under the costume.
The way I see it as long as they keep Spider-Man as a nerd and as long as he's still male it doesn't matter who gets cast so long as they can act out the role well.

Movieverse - Comicverse - they dont have to tie to one another. If the guy is good and the movie is good, whats the downside here? If it helps you all sleep better just imgaine it's an alt reality version ffs. Big deals are being made here and they're not warranted.
As stated above, he doesnt HAVE to be white. And funnily enough my boxers arnt in a twist at the thought of a Black spidey. Because a geek is always a geek
As long as the character remains somewhat true, then the story should be alright. It;s not like they changed it to a 6ft4 black highschool basketball star who gets bit. Now THAT, i would bunch my crotch for.
I dont want Spider-man to be black, and that doesnt make me aracist, I just think its a retarded idea. Spider-man is white, has always been white and there's nothing wrong with respecting the source material. Why dont we cast an asian guy as Mohammad Ali in a movie? Or make Jesus gay? Or even better a lesbian to show the world that we have no prejudice?
Id love to see Luke Cage on a big screen but it would be retarded if he is played by say Van Damme, same here.

Marvel seemed to be considering this route before, with all those heavy 'Will Smith as Captain America' rumours. I'm glad they didn't do it, because it would have felt like tokenism, and not worked at all with the history of America at that time. (Now, Will Smith as Isiah Bradley would be fine...) This would smack of tokenism for it's own sake, and unnecessary.

T'challa cant be white, ofcourse, hes an african king. Storm is his african wife. They're hardly gonna cast Dolph Lungdren to play Black Panther in frickin Russia or someshit. Np. But the story of a geek getting bit..spiderman in general is not race based. He's a new yorker. well? he's still a newyorker, just a diferent colour pair of eyes, or hair, or parents. Skin colour is a minor detail when dealing with THIS PARTICULAR tale 'a highschool kid getting powers'. Being WHte or Black doesnt add ordiminish the story telling capability like ti would for an African Dolph Lungdren.
yes and spider-man being black is just not canon no matter what you do.
you can agree or disagree but no matter what anyone says Spider-Man is not black.
i'll put it this way if he would have bee black from the start then that would have been kool but he was not so it not cool.
now on that subject if idk say they would start a series of comics about spider-man being black and that would be the mainstream i would stop reading spidy comics because it just wouldn't be spider-man its that simple.
and i feel the same about the movie verse as well......so say or believe as you wish but their are fans like myself that feel the same as I.
