Report: Sony Considering Making Spider-Man Bisexual, Giving Him Boyfriend for New Movie

Friday February 14, 2020

The entertainment website We Got This Covered is reporting that Sony is interested in making a live-action version of the popular animated film "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse" that would reunite a number of actors who played Spider-Man, including Andrew Garfield — and producers want Garfield's version of the hero to be bisexual and have a boyfriend.

In "Spider-Verse," it's shown that there are several different realities and dimensions in which Spider-Man exists with different people (and animals) in the superhero role. According to the website's report, the live-action version of the animated film would bring together actors Tom Holland, Tobey Maguire and Garfield, who have all played Spider-Man over the last 20 years.

Sony has not commented nor confirmed the report.

Back in 2013, when Garfield was playing Peter Parker, he questioned at the time whether or not Spider-Man could be not straight.

"I was like, 'What if [Peter Parker's love interest Mary Jane] is a dude?' Why can't we discover that Peter is exploring his sexuality? It's hardly even groundbreaking!... So why can't he be gay? Why can't he be into boys?" Garfield told Entertainment Weekly at the time.

Then in 2015, he echoed similar comments when speaking with Mic asking when is culture going to reach a point "where we can have a pansexual Spider-Man."
