For those of you up to date with happenings in the comic book world, you probably know we now have a black Spider-Man and his name is Miles Morales. Actually, he has been Spider-Man in an alternate Universe for a while now, but he is now set to officially take over from Peter Parker.
You’re probably wondering how this is a movie news. Well, there’s been a lot of speculation as to who the next Spider-Man will be. We know for sure that we’ll be having a white Peter Parker in the upcoming Marvel Spider-Man film which is due for release in 2017. What we don’t know is who will be playing the role post 2017.
The number contender for a while now has been Donald Glover. Back in 2010, there was a campaign to have the actor play Spider-Man, but things were not just right yet. Now that things may be shaping up for a black Spidey, age is no longer on Glover’s side, seeing as he’s probably going to be required to play a high schooler.
There are no other serious contenders yet, as most of the attention right now is on who will be playing Spidey in 2017. Even this has not been decided yet, so it’s going to be a while before talk of a black one is given any serious thought.
However things turn out, we can only hope Marvel delivers magic with the upcoming installments. We’ve had too many terrible Spider-Man movies after Toby Maguire.
