      I would if she played the part well. I like to see a Black woman get the part. But in the end to me it's how well did the actor did the part. I'll give a couple examples In the fantastic four movies The white guy to played the part better than the Black actor. However in the Wild Wild West movie Will Smith did a way better job than Robert Conrad and I thought it would of impossible for any actor to top Robert Conrad's version of James West.

  • This shit is getting bad.

    I don't understand why they don't create a new hero with new physical features. Spiderman was drawn as a basic white dude. It's the way it is.

      ^^ This. That's the way he was written, just as Blade was written as a black guy. Unless we're talking about Miles Morales, Peter Parker AND Mary Jane have always been white.

      Sorry for ranting, but it does pisses me off.

  • These days the media is trying to be politically correct or "progressive" and casting black or female actors in an attempt to fill some arbitrary quota, not because it fits the movie or because they're good actors.

    The new Ghostbusters and upcoming star wars are two recent examples. Movies\stories rewritten with females to push a political agenda, not because the movie woukd be good. Rogue One is also CLEARLY a Dark Forces movie, yet they pushed out Kyle Katran as the lead simply because they want to be "progressive" and have a female lead.

    So sure, if he was a good actor in a movie with a compelling plot then I don't care about his skin color. If its a crappy movie with crap actor, but he's black because the movie studio has some agenda to push, then no I won't be seeing it.

  • Let's start replacing black characters with white actors in movies and see how non biased blacks are when that happens.

    Spider Man is a white character. Made by two white guys for a white audience. Anyone who wants more black comic book characters should try inventing some instead of just culturally appropriating white characters like assholes.

  • No... Would you watch Django unchained if Django was played by John travolta?
    It's not true to the original story. Or the original character.

    Instead of changing the identity of heros, create new ones. That's what needs to be done.

      It is bullshit - just like "Hamilton" on Broadway...

  • No, I would not watch it.
    If the Hollyweird Jews want to have a black superhero, let them create a new one. Do not take a white character and turn him black.

  • Remaking old characters with different races and genders just makes think they have no original story to tell. You have to assume it sucks before it's even finished being made.

      When you actually have something original, you don't need to ride on old coat tails... Pitch Black came out in 2000. From it an entire universe onto itself was created filled with fuereons, necromonger, merc bounty hunters, various settlement factions, prison planets, etc. Do that, don't try to fuck up an old story.

  • Well no becuase the character Peter Parker in the comics is white... not black. It's going against the narrative but then again Hollywood nowadays likes to mix things up and find new ways to make profits as usual.

    Would you be happy if the new Luke Skywalker was black for instance?

      No this is what you do if Hollywood has any common sence which would please everyone mostly. What I would do is write up a new superhero screenplay feature from scratch and this time the protagonist will be African American, simple.

  • super hero movies are shit. in fact, most movies these days are utter crap, shit out by hollywood in order to milk big names.

    I can't remember the last time i went to the cinema, id rather spend my money on something else. however, i couldnt careless what ethnicity the actors are as long as they do their job well.

  • I'm black, and I'd watch it only if John Boyega played Spidy. Other than that I probably wouldn't care. For me I don't need to see black men play roles that have commonly been by white guys. Though a black James Bond could be done if they pick the right person. Again, John Boyega would fit that bill pretty well, but in about another 10 years, he's too young right now.

      @Waffles731 If they wanna make a different Spider Man with a difference character and a different race/ethnicity, go ahead, I don't see anything wrong.
      But the question is if you would care if they changed Peter Parker's race. That's just a big no. You can't just change an iconic (even if it was regular) character's race just because some people would be happier (while getting many more angry).

  • Why not just use Miles Morales who is black/Latino spiderman? He's wicked awesome.

  • Absolutely not. I would never watch a Spiderman movie with a black Peter Parker. I WOULD however watch a Spiderman movie with Miles Morales, a half-black half-lation kid, being Spiderman. That's who you have pictured by the way just in caseyou didn't know

  • My only reason for saying no is that Peter Parker, comic book wise, shares nothing with the black experience and being African-American I feel like if they were to changehim to being black you have to change his Dynamic his backstory and his emotional life to the point where it wouldn't feel like Peter Parker anymore. And that is where Miles Morales Succeeds. Miles Morales is a completely new story that has the black Dynamic and fits the role because it was created to do so

  • I don't like the Spiderman movies so I wouldn't watch regardless. But here's a good rule: a character should only be a of a certain ethinicity or skin tone if necessary.
    For example: Ip Man should be Chinese or at least look relatively Chinese and inhabit the culture. It'd be ironic of he was Japanese or Mongolian or something.
    Django should be black because of the context of slavery.
    Peter Parker however (as far as I know) has no ties to a race, culture, or ethnic background
