2017 Spider-Man Movie Spider-Man Tom Holland

Social media criticism over casting

18 Jun, 2015

Many fans are disappointed that the new 2017 Spider-Man movie will be made with another young, white Spider-Man behind his mask. Fans complain about Spider-Man being played by a teenage actor and the failure to use the half-black, half-Latino Spider-Man from Marvel’s alternate Ultimate Universe comics created in 2011. The terms Spider-Man, Tom Holland and Miles Morales were trending for hours after the casting announcement was made.
