WGTC: “Tom Holland has reiterated that he hopes to one day see a gay Spider-Man up on the big screen, saying it'd be a progressive way to create a new character.”
"it'd be a progressive way to create a new character.”
Its not creating a new character its hijacking a current one.
Tom Holland is a delightful ballet dancer, here he can be seen with his male dance partner as they discuss their shared love of dance.
Fuck that. Just write a new gay character! Stop hijacking established characters. Holy crap am I glad this dude is no longer Spider-Man.
No longer? What happened?
Tom Holland is still Spider-Man, tons of people keep misspeaking and aren't informed.
he is still spiderman... he just isnt in the mcu. now his spiderman is in the spiderU with Venom.
You can ask for any type of character, once you no longer play that character. As long as you respect the character you are given. After that, the fans will respect you for asking for anything. Example: a non-English speaking, 68 year old spiderman... if that is what you want.
What does someones sexual orientation have to do with being a superhero?
Exactly. It doesn't. In my opinion, no one needs to know any character's sexual orientation unless it's part of the plot.
So, Nobody needs to know about Clark's Lois? Or Spider-Man's MJ? Or Hulk's Betty? Or Reed Richard's wife Susan?
Fact is, when you write characters, they're going to be in relationships, when they're not beating bad guys, when in their personal, private life. That's always been there in the comics.
I don't believe Tom Holland is saying Peter Parker should suddenly be made gay, but with the whole multiverse thing, or with the story about Miles and other characters becoming 'Spider-Man', you could easily write a new character in who's gay, and who gains Spider-powers. No big deal.
You can't see a character struggling with having powers AND (possibly) struggling with their sexuality while possibly saving the world?
This shit is so sad...
Anyone know if there's any openings left back in regularville? I need to move back.
oh god please put the hell that sh@#%t away from out favorite Marvel characters, just stop with this nonsense. :/
“I think that would be a very progressive way to kind of create a new character,” Holland said. “So, yeah, I think there should be one day, and I hope that I get to share the screen with that person.”
Tom's clearly uncomfortable with this question he keeps getting because publications gotta either milk progressive points or "expose" an actor. It's like watching talk show hosts who keep questioning Andrew Garfield about being Spider-Man when he'd rather not talk about it and move on. This shows more problems with these interviewers than anything else.The fact they asked this question twice to him is evidence to them trying to get a more straight answer so they can parade it around and act like harbingers of justice. These people aren't truly satisfied with anything less than "This character NEEDS to be gay RIGHT NOW" and Tom's not giving it to them.
Is he trying to get out of the role or something?
These people have no concept of real people.
Make your "gay spiderman" but I won't be watching him anymore.
Instead of MJ BJ?
