Considering the amount of time comic book purists b****ed about who played MJ in the three films because she was neither hot enough or curvy enough you would have to think they would go nuclear if Zpiderman was black. Not because its a black man, but because the spiderman presented does not fit with canon. Same deal when M became a woman in the James Bond series. Its not canon, it bugs people. And its the comic nerds that would make the movie successful. They are the fools that go see it 3 or 4 times.
