And once again, I'm trying to figure out why Spiderman's skin color is so important to his character. The costumed superhero is more iconic than the actual person IMO.
Jesse McCartney looks way more like the cartoon character than Dev Patel, so good luck with the closet conspiracy theories.
And because Peter Parker is every bit as, if not MORE (due to the relentless development of his character's early life, development) iconic than the costumed superhero. I'm even mad that they made the web fluid one of his powers, when originally it was something he built and developed (hence the two fingers clenched when he shot the web fluid because it pressed a button on his wrist mechanism).
There's plenty of room for a black kid/guy/even girl to get bit by a radio active spider. Just leave Peter Parker alone.
