People Are Pissed About Tom Holland Being Cast As The New Spider-Man
The new man to play Spider-Man has been selected by Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios.
It is a young British actor by the name of Tom Holland.
Holland is 19 years old, and he has been in films such as "The Impossible" and the upcoming "In the Heart of the Sea."
Holland will first play the part of Spider-Man in "Captain America: Civil War" in 2016. He will take on the character again in a new movie coming out in 2017.
But some people aren't too happy Spider-Man is, once again, a young white male.
The character keeps getting rebooted, yet nothing much changes. And some fans are not too happy. Check out some of the fans' reactions to see what I mean:
Some people weren't happy about his race.
