I go to bed early last night, and this happens:
Seems like fans across the board are very happy with this news, as am I. The mere thought of having Spidey interact with the Avengers mas me giddy. The only one who probably isn’t very happy right now is Andrew Garfield, who is likely out as Spider-Man. He wasn’t perfect as Peter Parker, but I liked him better than Tobey Maguire in the role.
Personally, I wouldn’t mind a more adult version of Spider-Man in the movies. My entire comic book reading life, the 616 Peter Parker has been an adult working hard to pay his bills. I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of seeing the movie version of Peter Parker in high school or college.
But if Marvel decides to do another teenage version of Spider-Man, then why not try something new, and introduce Miles Morales to the cinematic universe?
That would reignite interest in the Spider-Man character and likely bring in new fans to the movies and the comics. However, if they go with Miles Morales, please cast an actual teenager this time, okay Marvel?
