    He does not have to be white to be Spiderman, as it is fine to have someone else plat him as a different character, but since peter Parker has been welle stablished as he is white...

    it would be like having a Black batman , that would be fine also, just make him a different person, not bruce wayne,,,

I don't think introducing a different character really solves the problem. It just irritates a different core of fans who want to see Peter Parker as Spider-Man, not some random guy who's not named Peter Parker simply because he's not white.

Think about the Marvel Multiverse. A universe has to exist somewhere that is exactly like the 616 that we all know and love, except Peter Parker is black. Why is it so hard to accept that?

I look at it this way: I've never seen Hancock and don't really have any interest in it. But if there was a Superman movie starring Will Smith, I would be very interested.

Of course, I still want to see new minority characters introduced. But I'd like to see their mythology build before putting them in a movie. Existing characters have well established mythologies and changing a characters ethnicity doesn't change that.
