I don't think Spider-man as a legacy can be limited to being heterosexual Ie: another person under the mask. Some of the best characters are gay. Midnighter being a prime example. However Peter Parker isn't gay. It would be like making Midnighter straight just for no reason.

Also, I think this is a stupid move on his part, but only because this joke brings negative attention to TASM2

Anyone who honestly thinks he's serious is dumber than a pile of rocks.

Uh, people want to see Mary Jane, not Manly Jane. If you want gay people in a movie or comic, then add a gay character. But don't make a character gay because you can. That's just stupid and takes away from an already established character.

Can everyone here explain to me the outrage? I don't get it...Like I honestly wouldn't care what Spider-Man's sexuality was because his story really isn't about that...So yeah...I'm just kinda confused to why everyone is so pissed off about this suggestion

kool, but I'd prefer if they finally got a male to play Spider-Man! ZINGO!

Couldn't resist.

but seriously folks, making him gay accomplishes nothing, because then he becomes a character who is gay, and is popular in spite of his sexual orientation, and it would not be the same as a gay character starting gay, and achieving a spider-man status on it's own. In other words bad.

And that's the reason why Andrew Garfield is the ACTOR and not the DIRECTOR or PRODUCER of the series.

Meh, I'd be okay with a gay Spider-man, but Mary Jane is one of my favorite female characters.

If he was gay, but they still had a female MJ and introduced a new character to be his love interest, I'd be all for it.

Though it would be nice to see Peter and MJ as a proper couple again.

I'll be fine either way.

I do support the LGBTQ community, but I have to say no to this.
To put it in a simple terms: Peter Parker is not gay.

Honestly, Peter Parker kind of seems like he could be gay. But don't make MJ male. Just match him with some cute twink who can be the film's new love interest.

Um,not like his sexuality really matters...but Peter Parker isn't homosexual. Not only that,but he was created during a time when homosexuals were still (highly) looked down upon...not that it's roses and flowers here,but.....

Anyway,if he was created Gay during his creation (although since the time,Idk if he would be AS popular....perhaps he would be),then it would be a bit different. But Spiderman simply wasn't created homosexual. He's not gay....

I don't exactly know if I'm expressing my point in a way easy for people to understand.

It's like saying "Why don't we make Spiderman a female?". I mean,given the time during his creation,it certainly would help the dearth of women in comics...perhaps he wouldn't be as popular,and perhaps he would.

Ultimately,it doesn't impact his character or anything,but he wasn't created as a female and that shouldn't change now being that it's not part of his character. If he was created so,I would be fine with it,but since he's not...no. It's basically pointless,while his race,sexual orientation,gender,religion,etc don't MAKE his character,they are all still part of his character. To change it now,he just wouldn't be Peter Parker,just someone else with his name....kinda ironic given the current situation lol.

I don't want to seem biased or anything,so I don't know if I am expressing my point in an understandable way....

He was?

Ok, so it is no secret that I am a liberal and 100% an advocate of gay rights, gay marriage, etc. That being said I am SO sick of the gay lifestyle being shoved on already established characters. This happens more in the comic book world (movies and books.) then ANY other medium. I don't have an issue with having gay characters in comics, I do however have a big problem with them continuously turning already well establish heterosexual characters gay. Why can't Spider-Man be gay? Easy answer...Spider-Man is NOT gay. Why not make a new character weather it be hero or villain and make said new character be gay.

what happened to my post???

what I said was @joygirl: I don't think they know what the word 'twink' means

also..

What if Micheal James was the boy next door who Peter used to play with when he was younger, and then one day Mary Jane shows up and the fall for each other, but.. uh-oh she's the same person

(you know, like MJ had to move away suddenly- and then she returns out of the blue having begun to transition genders)
