"Listen, this is not set in stone guys, but I’m telling you right now, Spider-Man’s not going to be white. Spider-Man’s not going to be white. I’m 95% sure. Spider-Man’s going to be most likely black. But there’s a chance he could also be Latino. 95% sure, not white."This should not be a very big surprise. Sony's recent misfortune (the infamous "hack") has really tarnished their image, and rebooting the franchise with a non-white Spider-Man could bolster their image, and signal big profits at the box office. When Marvel Comics "killed" Peter Parker in 2011, the black/latino Miles Morales was there to fill in. Sony may very well employ a similar series of events, handing the reigns of an incredibly popular franchise over to a relatively unknown actor. Countless articles speculating on which actor is the best choice have been written (including one by Entertainment Fuse), and nearly all have a diverse selection of actors. With the exception of Blade and Spawn, there has been zero ethnic representation in comic book movies, and in an age where cinema has become truly global, the fact that all recent super-hero movies have been helmed by white males is the only real news.
