1. Hopefully, next time [Spider-Man] will be a half-Hispanic, half-African American actor.

    — 

      Andrew Garfield, at an Amazing Spider-Man promotional event, in reference to the new Ultimate Spider-Man, Miles Morales, thus making my heart grow three sizes.

    We need more superhero actors who are passionate about their roles in a more-than-cursory way, and certainly we need more white male (superhero) actors who support diversity where so many others don’t. For right now, Garfield isn’t the Spidey we need, but he may be the Spidey we deserve.

    Also, the new trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man looks pretty good.
