No More Peter Parker For Spider-Man Movies?

So there has been a lot of talk lately on the future of Spider-Man both for Marvel and Sony. The latest rumors (I try not to deal in rumors too much) is that Sony is looking to bring a different Spider-Man to the big screen. Unconfirmed reports are saying that Sony wants to give us Miles Morales as our new Spider-Man rather than Peter Parker. I definitely have mixed feelings about this…

From MovieWeb; The Wraps Jeff Sneider said , “This is not set in stone, guys, but I’m telling you right now: Spider-Man’s not going to be white. I’m 95% sure. Spider-Man’s going to be most likely black. But there’s a chance he could also be latino. 95% sure: not white. I don’t think it’s going to be Peter Parker.”

I thought the comics were very compelling and he’s a great contrast to the Peter Parker storyline that we all know so well. However, I believe that this should be a separate series/franchise to the Spider-Man that will appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.  There is plenty of room for both Spider-Man characters to be in theaters and in fact, this could help launch a whole new set of films set in the Marvel Ultimate Universe.

Now with that being said I don’t think that completely replacing Peter Parker with Miles Morales is a good idea at all. In fact this sounds like the kind of stupid shit from Sony that Killed two Spider-Man franchises in the first place. This is a move of desperation to prove that they deserve to hold onto the rights to Spider-Man and join the progressive movie making band wagon. We as fans want to see Spider-Man (Peter Parker) done right and I believe that Marvel can deliver. Peter Parker played too big of a part in the Civil War story line for them to just change it over to Miles. Not to mention Miles really only works if there already exists an established Peter Parker. Otherwise his becoming Spider-Man really loses most of it’s impact.

As always I want to know what you think Nerd Nation. Which Spider-Man do you think should be the one to move forward in the next movies and why? I’d really love to hear your thoughts on this one Nerd Nation so leave me a comment below, on the Facebook page or hit me up on Twitter.
