There’s a lot going on with the Spider-Man franchise. Andrew Garfield has replaced Tobey Maguire as Peter Parker for The Amazing Spider-Man movie. Marvel also replaced director Sam Raimi with Marc Webb.
Now in the comic book world, Peter Parker has been replaced by Miles Morales, a half-black, half-Latino teenager. He takes over as the masked hero after Peter Parker is “killed”. Miles Morales appears in Ultimate Spider-Man, an alternate universe from the Marvel comic book series, which actually means the original Peter Parker is actually still alive.
Miles Morales has already been getting mixed reactions over the web. Some welcome the change, hailing Marvel for coming up with something that expresses equality. Some however disliked the idea, saying that there’s only one Spider-Man, and it’s Peter Parker.
