CB: At the German premiere of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in Berlin, co-producer Matt Tolmach hinted at another potential member of the movie version of the Sinister Six, and also hinted at a potential gender swap for the character.
Not too worried about this one. He really isn't that much of an in-depth character and at this point they are not showing all that much respect in terms of following comics anymore anyways.
He might not be the most important character of the spiderman mythos , but so far every attempt to remove Toomes or makes younger , the old vulture , failed massively . He does have a decent load of backstories , and there is no need to make every spiderman ennemy someone with a deeply personal grudge , we do need just a few semi competent greed and power driven plain criminals , and Vulture and Shocker provide that . I'm not especially worried , they know there are people up in arms at any change , and they know their previous attempts at more than an updated costume failed and generated even less interest (especially Ultimate Vulture) than the plain old Adrian Toomes . It's just bored bloggers/jounalists trying to create stuff out of nothingness . They are proposing just an idea , and some producter is just saying "ok why not , but i'm not committed to that"
I will simply repeat what I wrote on an older post: Soon we will see an Asian Batman, A white Black Panther, A gay Spider-man, and a zombie Superman. Now the change of genders? ** **** **********!
Sorry, they make a storyline about Spider-Man being gay and I'm done with my monthly comic subscriptions. Nothing against gay people, just leave my superhero's alone!
I fully agree with you, 100 %
Surely it would be better to just replace him altogether with a female villian full stop....
