The directors declared, ““We had thought back to the things that excited us about him as a character when we were younger, and one of the most important components of that was that he’s a high schooler burdened with incredible powers and responsibility.
That really differentiates him from every other character in the Marvel universe as opposed to other superheroes. For us, it was extremely important that we cast somebody very close to the age of a high school student.”
In other news, US and Cuba are currently working their political relationship and Marvel thought that the time was ripe to introduce Spiderman in la llave del Caribe, as shown in the latest issue of Amazing Spiderman. In this story, Peter Parker travels to the communist nation in a private jet and he is in search of more than just a tropical vacation.
Sadly, this issue met with a rough start. The comic-book’s first panel shows Spiderman looking out into a city, crouched on the top of a building. The Puerto Rican flag is seen waving in the wind.
The caption even reads “This is not Havana. This is the town of Remedios, Cuba.” Sadly, the colors on the flag were incorrect and reversed. Jose Molina, the Puerto-Rican born author of this issue later apologized for this mistake.
Stay tuned for more updates on Spiderman!
