We may have seen the last of Peter Parker as Marvel is reportedly set to dump him for another Spider-Man alter ego.
According to Hollywood writer Jeff Sneider, the next Spider-Man will be “most likely black”
“This is not set in stone guys, but I’m telling you right now: Spider-Man’s not going to be white,” he revealed.
While sources were not disclosed, Sneider claimed a high degree of certainty. “Spider-Man’s going to be most likely black. There’s a chance he could also be Latino,” he said, “I’m 95% sure: not white.”
This wouldn’t require much, as Marvel already have such a character, Miles Morales, a teenage Brooklynite who also gained arachnid superpowers from a spider bite.
A decision is expected to be made soon, as which ever character is chosen is expected to appear in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War.
