But as things are surely buzzing over at the Marvel camp, it seems there is a huge chance Spider-Man will not be Peter Parker, or white for that matter.

The Wrap’s reporter Jeff Sneider recently talked on the podcast about the possibility of who Spider-Man would be in the coming Marvel film:

This is not set in stone guys, but I’m telling you right now: Spider-Man is not going to be white… Spider-Man is not going to be white. I am 95% sure. Spider-Man is going to be most likely black. But there is a chance he could also be Latino. 95% sure not white. I don’t think it’s going to be Peter Parker. Sony has an opportunity to beat Marvel and DC to the punch with sort of a major black comic book character. Like I said last week, the e-mails that leaked were perceived to be racist in some quarters. I really think that is going to play into things.

And seeing the long roster of recent Marvel films take most of their film cues from the Ultimate Universe, it would only make sense that Marvel’s Spider-Man would be Morales. How certain “fanboys” will take it, considering how warmly Johnny Storm was welcomed is yet to be seen.

It’s rumoured Spider-Man will make his Marvel Cinematic debut in Captain America: Civil War, which is out May 2016, and a standalone Spider-Man film is scheduled for July 28th 2017.
