Lately, Marvel has been doing things “out of character.” These changes are for the better. First, Ava DuVernay was appointed as the first African American and woman to direct a Marvel film. The name of that movie will be called ‘Black Panther.’
Recently, Marvel revealed the new and improved Spider-Man. I guess we can say goodbye to Peter because Miles Morales has the mask now. Miles Morales is characterized as African-American and Puerto Rican.
“Many kids of color who when they were playing superheroes with their friends, their friends wouldn’t let them be Batman or Superman because they don’t look like those heroes but they could be Spider-Man because anyone could be under that mask,” said writer and co-creator Brian Bendis to the Daily News. “But now it’s true. It’s meant a great deal to a great many people.”
The relaunch of the Comic book aficionados is expected to hit shelves this Fall.
