Title: Poll: Who should play Spider-Man?
Post by: PORG on March 20, 2015, 08:00:00 pm
Because of the large number of options, I will allow for two votes here.

Nicolas Cage should've been Superman.

I went with Cage and Glover, but Tobey was my third choice.

Agreed. Best movie ever right there.

Ugh, I hate, hate, hate this whole Miles Morales thing.  Listen, do I think Morales has a place amongst the Avengers?  Sure.  But omitting Peter Parker or making Parker black would only worsen the problem because every time someone talks about black Parker or Morales, they'll just refer to them as the inferior version to Maguire or Garfield.  They should just make Parker white and wait a few movies to then pass the mantle to Morales.  How jarring would it be to have some un established character as Morales pop up as Spiderman and not a familiar face like Parker?  I can understand why comic book fans would hate it because it's basically taking a **** on the source material.  Instead of trying to make white characters black, **** introduce great black characters like Static Shock, Cyborg, and Black Panther (the latter two are finally getting friction).  Seriously...

That's what I think they're gonna do. Parker will be essential for the first few (just for continuity), and after a while they're switch him out for Morales. They're currently doing something similar with Captain America (Bucky Barnes ftw).

Voted Teller and Garfield. Garfield and Stone were impeccably cast, and helped their movies. But, if they don't rehire Garfield, they should get Teller because he deserves work, and they could bring back J. K. Simmons as J. Jonah Jameson, and the movie would be just as intense during quiet moments as it would be during action sequences.

Warner Bros. is launching a live-action Static Shock program from Reginald Hudlin as part of the company's new Blue Ribbon Content digital division.

Andrew Garfield having more votes than Tobey Maguire makes me weep for humanity.

Yeah I really can't stand Andrew Garfield...

I still think he's a good choice for the role.

I was fine with Tobey in the role since he makes for a good Peter Parker, but isn't he too old nowadays? An almost forty-year old playing a teenager is like if an acclaimed Oscar winner played a puppet boy...oh, wait...

I know you're joking, but Tobey is quite old for the role now (Garfield is too, but not as much).

Garfield at least sort of looks the age still. I also don't want Tobey to have his career be defined by just that one role.

If Nicolas Cage doesn't win this I will call shenanigans....

I think Dayo Okeniyi would be a good Miles Morales. For those who don't know, he's the black kid from The Spectacular Now (and he's playing Miles Dyson's son in Terminator Genisys).

For a second, I thought you were intentionally misspelling David Oyelowo, which made me laugh.
