I would understand this this thread if it was in a SPIDERMAN Forum web site..But what is it doing here? Oh I forgot,this site is suppose to be about STO..Are you guys that bored? and who cares if spiderman is black or white...he should be a Klingon in my book..! That would be interesting !
This is 10F, the only thing you can't talk about is spanky spots...and something else that got deleted.
It makes no sense to have a spiderman that wasn't the classic Peter Parker.
Now before it is suggested the Pres is a racist, this is not the case. The comic books and newspaper comic strips over the years established what Peter looked like a long time ago, and while there are African American super heroes Spiderman is not one.
This is no different than taking a novel's character that is well described and changing their race. Examples include a Halo live action and making Avery Johnson a Caucasian guy or making that ghastly Edward on Twilight Hispanic or African American.... or even let's say a Russian Picard, complete with accent. Yeah. Think about that.
If they want to make a movie with an African American hero, just make a new hero! I remember a show a long time ago that game on after a Ghostbusters cartoon that I religiously watched. I wasn't a fan of it but it could work, was called Static Shock.
You know the whole story is based on a radioactive spider bite. I always wondered why couldn't this same spider run off and bite someone else.
You could still have your main Spiderman, then you could have any other guy be like him. If that same spider bite them too.
All I am saying the door was left out for years, and no one took the ball and ran with it, so why can't you make a new movie, that explores this story a little deeper, and show more than one guy gettting effected by this same spider.
