Sony allegedly wants a bisexual Spiderman in an upcoming Spiderman film. Former Spiderman, Andrew Garfield, said “What if MJ 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?” Even just last year, Tom Holland mentioned that it would “be a very progressive way to kind of create a new character.”
It has been rumored since the live-action film of Spiderverse (2018), the movie would bring together Tom Holland with his forerunners Andrew Garfield and Tobey McGuire. Sony wants Garfield’s reprise to be bisexual and have a boyfriend.
Garfield continues to express his excitement for a bisexual character and even suggested Michael B. Jordan to play the role. He said the actor seemed very “charismatic” and “talented.” And that not only would he be bi but it would be a bi-interacial relationship. The more representation the better.
It could all just be rumors, of course, but with Garfield’s enthusiasm and exclaim for more gay characters, it's not such a hard thing to believe.
“You’re gonna see even more new faces. From all different backgrounds, all ages, all ethnicities, LGBTQ... It’s a priority to have authenticity, to increase representation, to give greater representation to actors who have not traditionally been represented in mainstream movies on the big screen,” said Sarah Halley Finn, the casting director for every Marvel film since Iron Man (2008).
