But fans also learned recently that the newest iteration of the web-slinger on the big screen will once again be Peter Parker, as British actor Tom Holland, the third white actor to play the character since 2002, was announced as the new Spidey.

Marvel’s Kevin Feige Says ‘Spider-Man’ Will Be Like a John Hughes Movie

A lot of Marvel fans were a little concerned about the age (both actual and perceived) of new Spider-Man actor Tom Holland. Let’s face it, he has a baby face, and with that came a lot of detractors who said, “it’s Spider-Man not Spider-Boy.” This logic is highly flawed (Spider-Man was 15-years-old when bitten by the radioactive spider, four years younger than Holland), but Marvel president Kevin Feige has explained the choice to go young with Spider-Man saying they were very much influenced by John Hughes’ films.

The New York Daily News revealed on Sunday that Brian Michael Bendis and Sara Pichelli will launch a new ongoing Marvel series starring Miles Morales in the wake of Secret Wars — with the twist that this will be the first series starring Miles to be set in the main Marvel Universe rather than the Ultimate Universe. (Two major universes entered Secret Wars; one will leave.)
