Marvel Studios Spider-Man, My Way.

On a Budget of $140 Million, "Iron Man" released in summer of 2008. It began the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it's final Total in the Domestic Market was: $318,412,101. It's Foreign Market raked in: $266,762,121. Together it grossed a worldwide amount of: $585,174,222.

A trend continued with the film's sequel, "Iron Man 2", this time on a $200 Million budget Iron Man saw the success of a Domestic Total of $312,433,331. It's Foreign box office had accumulated $311,500,000. Combined together for a worldwide total of $623,933,331.

The Later Release of {Universal Studios and} Marvel Studio's "Incredible Hulk" also saw similar success. Budgeted for $150 Million It garnered: $134,806,913 In the Domestic Box Office, combined with a foreign box office total of: $128,620,638 for a world wide total of $263,427,551. Despite being low numbers it was profit, profit that Marvel has enjoyed.

Marvel's "Thor" changed things up a bit being the first of the Marvel Films to have a higher foreign Box Office than Domestic, respectively seeing the Foreign market at: $268,295,994. The Domestic Market was: $181,030,624 with a worldwide total of: $449,326,618.

Marvel's First Son, Captain America soared high on Both Markets, working on a budget of $140 Million, "Captain America The First Avenger" saw Nearly Equal success on both  Foreign and Domestic Markets. The Foreign market fairing slightly better with: $193,915,269. Domestic Box Office pulled in a very enjoyable: $176,654,505. A relatively small window of roughly $18 Million. Together Garnering the world wide total of: $370,569,774.

On a $220 Million budget, Marvel Studios produced and released the Box Office Juggernaut that is "The Avengers" becoming one of the Highest grossing films of all time, with a world wide total of $1.5 Billion, Scaled from the surprisingly high domestic total of $623,357,910 on top of a $895,237,000 Foreign Total.

These numbers are daunting. But they are also evidence of something very important, the Marvel style of comic book movies are not only profitable, they are practically unstoppable. Marvel's name has Proven to be a industrial juggernaut.

This brings me to the Sony/Marvel Deal. It's a hard deal to go through, both Studios obviously want to be top dog. Profit is the name of the Game, and that's what both studios are wanting. Sony wants to be the top dog cause they own Spider-Man, plain and simple. Marvel wants Spidey back because he is the prodigal son.

What they need is a fair deal, something that plays to both sides of the coin. A new Spider-Man Movie is inevitable, and at this point we all want Spider-Man in the loving arms of Marvel. We want to See Spidey fight Iron Man in a battle of witty comments.

Here is the Deal I've structured on the off set chance Either companies' lawyers one a whim happen upon this page:

Spider-Man is a lucrative property. People love him, he's also a cash flow juggernaut the like of Iron Man. Sony has the rights and that's fair. This deal is reaching a bargaining agreement. Sony Gets the Domestic Box Office Total of each Spider-Man in exchange they only front half the Money on a mutually agreed budget, set by the producers. Marvel Studios get's the Foreign Box Office, with Marvel and Sony sharing Logo's on each side to show a testament of good faith. So say we have a $180 Million Budget, each company throws in $90 Million from their producers. While Sony has creative control over the  Direction, Marvel Gets choice of Crew in terms of Screenwriters and Directors. This allows proper management so that Sony can continue the direction, and Marvel is able to have someone working on the movies they trust to produce a good Quality Script. Obviously Kevin Feige would have to approve the script.

With Them Co-Financing, this also makes the Idea of a Spider-Man in the Avengers, same actor, Just Marvel would have to pay Sony a Sizable rental fee for the use of the Character (something like $1-$3 Million because anymore is way too ridiculous to even consider).

In that, the only way the Avengers would really even get involved in Spider-Man's World, would be in an Avengers Movie, for the most Part Spider-Man, except for a "Hint Hint, Nudge Nudge" references, would be solo. But seeing Marvel being the way it is, it needs some tangibility in it's use of Spider-Man, it need's a character to connect it's Cinematic Universe to that way we can know where it's set and keep the relationship together.

So I propose they go in together and do a T.V. Series, this one not about Peter Parker but the Rising Star in Marvel... Miles Morales. Allowing him to be in a fully functional T.V. Series about him as Spider-Man in the MCU allows for some joint operating on both sides. Miles is the heavy Marvel part. Sony and Marvel would again put up half the Cash, Each would get an Executive Producer to be the show runner, In The Domestic setting, the series would air on ABC Family, same night or same time slot on a different day as Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.  In Foreign markets it can run on a Sony Owned Network, just because Sony has more foreign markets available than they do American.

As Far as Merchandise go, Since Sony is giving up some Spider-Man Movie Money, Marvel would have to give Sony the Full some of any Merchandise produced from any Spider-Man Solo film or the T.V. Show. Marvel keeps their money from Ultimate Spider-Man and Spider-Man Comic Book Related Games, but as far as the Movie, or the T.V. Show are concerned that would be owed to Sony.

It's a fair Deal between the two parties, Each stand to gain just as much as the other without losing face. Fans would surely benefit from this as they get the best of Both worlds in this entire venture.

Production Designer: a production designer or P.D is the person responsible for the overall look of a filmed event such as films, TV programs, video games, music videos or adverts. Production designers have one of the key creative roles in the creation of motion pictures and television. Working directly with the director and producer, they must select the settings and style to visually tell the story.

    Scott Chambliss [Notable Works: Star Trek, Salt, Alias]: Scott is a fantastic Designer, his work is very big and very dynamic. He's got the talent, the edge, and the overall vision to really give us a wonderful looking Spider-Man Universe.

Costume Designer: A costume designer is a person who designs costumes for a film or stage production. The role of the costume designer is to create the characters and balance the scenes with texture and color, etc. The costume designer works alongside the director, scenic, lighting designer, sound designer, and other creative personnel. The costume designer may also collaborate with hair stylist, wig master, or makeup artist. In European theatre, the role is different, as the theatre designer usually designs both costume and scenic elements.

    Sammy Sheldon Differ [Notable Works: V For Vendetta, X-Men First Class, Kick-Ass]: She gave the X-Men the 60's Uniform. She was able to lift some of the outfits from the Kick-Ass Comics into the Films. Her work has been consistently stellar, taking the original comic book uniforms of the X-Men and transitioning them into neat, well together and very subliminally individual in tone. There's no doubt in my mind that she could perfectly design the Characters of the Spider-Man Universe, let alone the perfect Spider-Man Uniform.

Director of Photography: A cinematographer (usually credited with the title director of photography, or DP) is the chief over the camera and lighting crews working on a film and responsible for achieving artistic and technical decisions related to the image. The study and practice of this field is referred to as cinematography.

    Trent Opaloch [Notable Works: Captain America The Winter Soldier, District 9, Elysium]: Trent is spectacular as a D.P. His work on Captain America has a wonderful sense of tone in it. He's got the right type of view for a hero, he could certainly do well with Spider-Man.

Film Editor: Film editing is part of the creative post-production process of filmmaking. The term film editing is derived from the traditional process of working with film, but now it increasingly involves the use of digital technology.

    Eddie Hamilton [Notable Works: Kick Ass, X-Men First Class, Kingsmen: Secret Service]: Eddie is wonderful at taking fast pace action and teen drama and mix them together.  His work on X-Men First Class is absolutely astonishing in pacing and in design.

Composer: A film score (also sometimes called film music, background music, or incidental music) is original music written specifically to accompany a film. The score forms part of the film's soundtrack, which also usually includes dialogue and sound effects, and comprises a number of orchestral, instrumental or choral pieces called cues which are timed to begin and end at specific points during the film in order to enhance the dramatic narrative and the emotional impact of the scene in question.

    Henry Jackman [Notable Works: Kick Ass, X-Men First Class, Captain America The Winter Soldier]:  His music is fantastic. It's uplifting, personal, and very characterized. Kick-Ass' score felt like a Spider-Man Score. Henry is a wonderful composer. He could definitely harness the sound of Spider-Man. Working with other Marvel Movies, it helps enhance the amount of sensation and wonder he could inject from the Marvel Cinematic Universe into a Spider-Man Film.

Screenplay: A screenplay or script is a written work by screenwriters for a film, video game or television program. These screenplays can be original works or adaptations from existing pieces of writing. In them, the movement, actions, expression, and dialogues of the characters are also narrated. A play for television is also known as a teleplay.

    Zack Stenz & Ashley Miller [Notable Works {As a Team}: Terminator The Sarah Conner Chronicles, Fringe, Thor]: They are great writers, they certainly have wonderful characterization and they get the characters they're writing. They have a sense about them that is just wonderful comic book-y yet not cartoonish or inhuman. They are certainly the right guys for Spider-Man.

Director: Directors are responsible for overseeing creative aspects of a film under the overall control of the film producer. They often develop the vision for a film and carry out the vision, deciding how the film should look, in other words they make their vision come to life. They are responsible for turning the script into a sequence of shots. They also direct what tone it should have and what an audience should gain from the cinematic experience. Film directors are responsible for deciding camera angles, lens effects and lighting with the help of the cinematographer and set design with the production designer. They will often take part in hiring the cast and key crew members. They coordinate the actors' moves, or blocking and also may be involved in the writing, financing and editing of a film.

    David Yates [Notable Works: Harry Potter {Franchise}, Tarzan, Tyrant]: I actually really like David's work. He did wonderful with Harry Potter, it shows he can handle the heavy Effects movies, while also being able to hold a film that evolves it's characters and it's story. He would certainly be perfect job for a College age Spider-Man Movie.

Aunt May [Height: 5' 5", Age: 60's]: May and Ben Parker took in their nephew Peter after the death of his parents and raised him. Ben immediately took to the role of the boy's father but May was at first reluctant. She still remembered her parents blaming her own birth for the destruction of their marriage, and she was afraid that Peter might signal the end of her own marriage.. After Ben's death, life became a struggle with money problems and Peter did his best to help.

    Sissy Spacek [Height: 5' 2", Age: 65, Notable Works: Carrie, Coal Miner's Daughter, The Help]: She is a wonderful actress. She has had such a strange and unique career. She's grown and Evolved herself. She has the talent and the spirit of a loving mother. She would be a perfect Aunt May.

Uncle Ben [Height: 5' 9", Age: 60's]: Ben Parker was born in Brooklyn, New York. He trained to be a military police officer. He spent time as a singer in a band. He had known his future wife May Reilly since their high school days, but she in turn was naively interested in a boy who was involved in criminal activities. When he came to her one night and proposed to her on the spot, Ben was there to expose him as a murderer, and to comfort the heart-broken May when the boy was arrested. Their relationship evolved into love, and they enjoyed a happily married life. When Ben's younger brother Richard Parker and his wife Mary were killed in a plane crash, Ben and May took in their orphaned son Peter and raised him as their own.

    William H Macy [Height: 5' 9", Age: 64, Notable Works: Fargo, Shameless, Wild Hogs]: William is best known as the nicest guy in Hollywood. He's played such uplifting and good people, that he is certainly a person who could carry a role like Uncle Ben with a sense geniune affection. He would be an absolutely wonderful Ben.

Peter Parker/Spider-Man [Height: 5' 10", Age: 20's]: A Spider-Man who's been active for roughly 5-10 years having possibly started at age 15 {As in the Original Stan Lee/Steve Ditko Run} now in his 20's, either in college and working for the Bugle, or Working as a high school science teacher and as freelancer at the Bugle.

Daniel Radcliffe [Height: 5' 5", Age: 25, Notable Works:  Harry Potter {Franchise}, Horns, What If {Released Internationally as "The F Word"}]: Daniel is a pretty damn good actor. He's risen to fame via Harry Potter and has since chosen roles that has been of artistic nature. But He can play a hero, he can give a strong performance, and he's a perfect age to play a College aged or 20 year old "adult" Spider-Man. He's given a great deal of quality performances, and his name is a good Box Office Draw, the Novelty alone of "Harry Potter is Spider-Man!" Would draw in a huge crowd and garner a lot of media attention. If his accent is a problem to you, check out this clip of his performance in Horns, showcasing a flawless American Accent:…

Mary Jane Watson [Height: 5' 8", Age: 20's]: After her mother Madeline left Philip, the Watson women stayed with various relatives. One such relative that MJ was particularly fond of was her Aunt Anna, living in Queens, New York. On the night of Ben Parker's murder, MJ spotted a frantic Peter running into his house with Spider-Man emerging from an upstairs windows only moments later. At this she deduced that Peter Parker and Spider-Man were one and the same. Confused by the emotions set off by the discovery, she chose to keep this information to herself. Dreaming of a career in either Broadway or film, MJ starred in high school productions such as Juliet in Romeo and Juliet, as Blanche DuBois in A Streetcar Named Desire and in other various plays and productions.

Rachel Hurd-Wood [Height: 5' 7", Age: 23, Notable Works: Peter Pan, Solomon Kane, Dorian Gray]: She's by far one of the most beautiful actresses I've ever seen. She's beautiful, and she's actually talented and strong when it comes to performing. She's a great actress who could really put the emotional depth and heart into Mary Jane. She could take the character to the heights everyone wanted to see out for Dunst.

Gwen Stacy [Height: 5' 7", Age: 20's]: Peter Parker met Gwen while they were undergraduates at Empire State University. Initially, Peter's problems as Spider-Man made him ignore her advances, and in return, she felt insulted by his aloofness. Gradually, however, a romance developed. Gwen, a science major, seemed to appreciate Peter's intellectual personality, different from that of jocks like Flash Thompson and preppies like Harry Osborn. She was Peter Parker's first true love.

    Eliza Taylor [Height 5' 5", Age: 25, Notable Works: The November Man, The 100, Patrick]: She is a wonderful actress. She's got talent and it's shining, she has a real sense about her that makes her a wonderful choice for the role of Gwen. She has a wonderful look about her that gives her the look of the character.

Eugene "Flash" Thompson/Agent Venom [Height: 6' 2", Age: 20's]: He is a star high school football player who mercilessly bullies classmate Peter Parker but greatly admires Spider-Man, an irony in which the superhero takes some gratification. After graduation, he joins the United States Army and is haunted by his combat experiences, leading to alcoholism. After losing both of his legs in the war, he was bound to the Venom Symbiote and became Agent Venom, an anti-hero and the first to control the organism.

    Liam Hemsworth [Height: 6' 3", Age: 24, Notable Works: The Hunger Games {Franchise}, Paranoia, The Last Song]: Liam is a wonderful actor. Both RoadDogg and I had come to him independently and both saw wonderful qualities that make him perfect for Agent Venom. He has the look, the voice and the demeanor of Flash Thompson.

Felicia Hardy/Black Cat [Height: 5' 10", Age: 20's]: Felicia Hardy was trained by her father (a world-renowned cat burglar) to become a great athlete. After a traumatic experience as a college freshman, Felicia trained herself to become highly skilled and an expert of martial arts and acrobatics. When her father was imprisoned, she decided to follow in his footsteps and use her abilities to become The Black Cat. In the first night of her costumed identity she encountered the lone hero Spider-Man. She felt as if she could trust him and changed sides so he could trust her too. They developed a relationship where Black Cat and Spider-man mutually loved one another. After they broke up, they remain as lovers from time to time. Black Cat was an ally of the arachnid hero and helped him whenever needed. Formerly a heroine, she used to get stolen rewards from the good actions she makes.

    Evan Rachel Wood [Height: 5' 6", Age: 27, Notable Works: The Wrestler, Ides of March, Thirteen]: With a Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do, and a long career of strong performance both of Fun Movies and Dramatic oscar worthy roles, She has shown a lot of talent at a young age. She has a strong sense about her and would certainly be a perfect for the role of Black Cat.

Liz Allen [Height: 5' 9", Age: 20's]: Initially, Peter liked Liz. However, she was Flash Thompson's girlfriend and initially considered Peter Parker something of a loser, even taking part in the general ridicule that Pete endured on a daily basis. She was flighty and rather thoughtless - not outright cruel, but lacking the empathy necessary to detect Peter's good points. At one point, paradoxically, she developed a crush on Spider-Man, blowing off both Flash Thompson and Peter Parker because she believed the costumed hero would call her. Liz dated and later married Harry Osborn, whom she met at Betty Brant's wedding to Ned Leeds, becoming Liz Allan Osborn. The couple had a son, Normie Osborn. Their family history turned tragic, however, after Harry Osborn followed in his father's footsteps becoming the Green Goblin and later died.

    Emily Kinney [Height: 5' 5", Age: 29, Notable Works: It's Complicated, The Walking Dead, Concussion]: A wonderful actress she has given strong and consistent performances over her career. Her character's leaving in the Walking Dead was not favored by fans, as her performances was considered the bright spot of the series. She has the talent and heart to really play this character as she should be.

Harry Osborn/Green  Goblin II [Height: 5' 10", Age: 20's]: Harold "Harry" Osborn was the son of wealthy industrialist Norman Osborn. He went to the same college as Peter Parker. They were roommates for a time, during which Harry encountered occasional problems with drugs. When his father died, Harry found the body and removed the costume. During this time, he dated Mary Jane Watson, but she broke off the relationship after Harry became more and more unstable due to his father's death. After learning that Peter was Spider-Man, he donned his father's costume and proclaimed himself the Green Goblin. He destroyed their apartment, and kidnapped their friends Mary Jane, Eugene "Flash" Thompson and May Parker. When he was defeated by Spider-Man, he told everyone that Peter was really Spider-Man before being taken away, but this was dismissed as the ravings of a madman. He was taken to a medical institution and was released, suffering from amnesia, forgetting Spider-Man's identity and both his and his father's roles as the Green Goblin.

    Steven R McQueen [Height: 6' 0", Age: 26, Notable Works: The Vampire Diaries, Minutemen, Pirahana 3D]: Steven is a strong actor, he's got a sense of fun and humor to him that really makes him an odd but fitting choice for a more physical version of Harry. I think his work on Vampire Diaries shows he capable of going deep and have fun doing it. He might not be able to play the Goblin but he could certainly play Harry.

J. Jonah Jameson [Height: 5' 11", Age: 50's]: Eventually Jameson purchased then financially floundering Daily Bugle, with money obtained from his personal assets and large inheritance. Hence, the Bugle was now owned by Jameson's own company, Jameson Publications. Jameson served as the newspaper's publisher and editor in chief, and revitalized the photograph-dominated tabloid format. In 1968 Jameson's company purchased the Goodman Building on 39th Street and Second Avenue in Manhattan and moved its entire editorial and publishing facilities there. The building became known as the Daily Bugle Building. Jameson's wife Joan died at some point under unrevealed circumstances. She and her husband had only one child, John, who became an astronaut for NASA.

    Jon Hamm [Height: 6' 2", Age: 43, Notable Works: Mad Men, The Day The Earth Stood Still, 30 Rock]: Jon is a great actor, and he is cast to death. He's perfectly happy not being a Superhero. He's a great actor and he has done humor and serious drama. He's got proper comical aspects and he has a good voice that could make him a wonderful Jameson.

Joseph "Robbie" Robertson [Height: 6' 1", Age: 50's]: Joseph "Robbie" Robertson worked the Daily Bugle years before Peter Parker's employment, and is seen often arguing with J. Jonah Jameson (as Ben Urich sides with Robbie). He argues with  Jameson over Spider-Man, often claiming the vigilante as a hero.

    Lennie James [Height: 5' 9", Age: 49, Notable Works: Jericho, Columbiana, Lockout]: Lennie is an awesome actor. I love is work, it's fun, it's deep, it's pretty much what the performance needs of him. He's got a great set of skills as an actor to play Robbie.

Betty Brant [Height: 5' 7", Age: 30's]: Betty Brant is the secretary of J. Jonah Jameson at the Daily Bugle. Initially she worked herself up into a rage while trying to build the Bugle's website. Fortunately Peter Parker took over from her and got his job at the Bugle as a webdesigner. She eventually graduated to the role of an investigative reporter.

    Alexis Bledel [Height: 5' 7", Age: 33, Notable Works: Sin City, Gilmore Girls, Violet & Daisy]: Alexis has grown as an actress. She's done strong in her performances both in indie films, big budget movies, and in basic t.v. series. She has a bright future as an actress and would certainly take this role with a sense of ernesty and maturity that it deserves.

Gloria Grant [Height: 5' 8", Age: 30's]: Gloria Grant was seen for the first time when she met Peter Parker and Flash Thompson. Parker had moved into a new apartment, and she was living down the hall. On seeing his camera she told him that fate had brought them together as she was a model and he a photographer. Soon after she met Mary Jane Watson, who had just returned from Hospital, and invited Peter to a Party at her apartment.

    Kerry Washington [Height: 5' 4", Age: 37, Notable Works:  Django Unchained, Fantastic Four, Ray]: Kerry has really impressed me with her performances. She's grown as an actress and can really show that she is deserving of an Oscar. Her work in Django was amazing, and she could really spice this series up as Gloria Grant with a little more fun for her to have.

John Jameson [Height: 6' 2", Age: 20's-30's]: Colonel John Jameson, son of newspaper mogul J. Jonah Jameson, was one of the youngest applicants to ever be accepted into NASA's astronaut program. During his first mission, in which he was to orbit Earth, the Forward Guidance Package on Jameson's capsule broke off in space, which caused the craft to spin out of control and plummet back down toward earth. The fledgling adventurer, Spider-Man, who had just begun his career weeks earlier, managed to rescue Jameson by getting a replacement guidance module and attaching it to the falling capsule. John was then able to land the craft safely. This incident, which Jameson's father construed as a publicity stunt to upstage his son's accomplishment, provoked the one of elder Jameson's first editorial denouncements of Spider-Man.

    Kellen Lutz [Height: 6' 1", Age: 29, Notable Works: The Expendables III, The Comeback, A Nightmare on Elm Street]: Kellen is an actor who has universally panned due to his part in Twilight. Performances in consistantly bad movies aren't helping. He's alright as an actor he's not leading man material but he has some talent that needs to be harnessed. I think he could be, but need a stepping stone, and John Jameson is a good stepping stone for him.

Dr. Ashley Kafka [Height: 5' 6", Age: 40's]: Ashley Kafka founded the Ravencroft Institute. While there she treated many criminally insane supervilains, including Electro, Vulture, Carnage, and Doctor Octopus.

    Rachel Weiz [Height: 5' 7", Age: 44, Notable Works: The Bourne Legacy, The Mummy,  The Mummy Returns]: She's a great actress.  A lovely woman who can certainly play a wonderful Doctor. She would be perfect for it.

Eddie Brock/Toxin [Height: 6' 3", Age: 30's]: Brock is a journalist who exposes the identity of a serial killer only for the real killer to be caught by Spider-Man, Brock having accused the wrong man. Disgraced and suicidal, Brock comes into contact with an alien Symbiote, rejected by Peter Parker. The Symbiote bonds with Brock becoming Venom and together they seek out revenge against their mutual enemy. Though Brock repeatedly comes into conflict with Spider-Man, he also attempts to operate as a hero, albeit a violent one, seeking to save those he deems "innocent". In 2008, after being separated from the Venom Symbiote, Brock gains a new Symbiote and becomes the anti-hero Anti-Venom. However, that symbiote is sacrificed to help cure the "Spider-Island" epidemic during the 2011 storyline. In 2012 he is bonded to the Toxin symbiote. Though Brock is a human with no powers, the Symbiote suit bestows upon him a range of abilities including many of the powers belonging to Spider-Man, the Symbiote's original host.

    Luke Evans [Height: 6' 0", Age: 35, Notable Works: Dracula Untold, Fast 7, The Hobbit The Battle of Five Armies]: Luke is a strong actor. He's a true leading man. Hes got a strong sense about him that makes him a key actor to go into this universe. I could have cast him as Morbius but that seemed like Type-casting. He works well in both Heroic and Villainous roles and I think that's a good reason to give him a role like Eddie Brock, He could certainly play this role perfectly.

Captain George Stacy [Height: 6' 1", Age: 70's]: Captain George Stacy was once a prominent member of the New York Police Department, who lived in Queens New York City, New York with his wife Helen Stacy and daughter Gwendolyn Stacy

    Scott Bakula [Height: 6' 0", Age: 60, Notable Works: Quantum Leap, Star Trek Enterprise, Looking]: Scott is so awesome as an actor. I am such a huge fan of his work with Quantum Leap and I thought he would be a perfect actor to play Captain Stacy. He would have such fun with it that it would be memorable.

Detective Jean DeWolff [Height: 5' 8", Age: 30's-40's]: The daughter of New York City police inspector Phillip DeWolff and his wife Celia, Jean DeWolff became a police detective herself, following in her father's footsteps. She worked her way up the ranks to become a captain, and became known for her love of 1930s-style clothing and cars. She met Spider-Man and they became allies. Jean felt an attraction towards Spider-Man, although she didn't tell him how she felt. Mentally insane, Jean's brother, Brian, became the costumed criminal known as the Wraith after the manipulations of his own father. The Wraith was eventually stopped by Spider-Man. Although Jean and Brian were close, this did not affect Jean's relationship with Spider-Man.

    Cote De Pablo [Height: 5' 6", Age: 35, Notable Works: NCIS, The Jury, The Last Rites of Ransom Pride]: Cote is a fun actress. She's been looking for something new, and while DeWolff is familiar ground it gives her a wider road to take the character and she would absolutely rock the role!

Silver Sablinova/Silver Sable [Height: 5' 5", Age: 40's]: Silver's father was a Nazi hunter, considered to be the best in Europe, even working alongside James Howlett, simply known as the Canadian at the time. His wife was murdered when the home he shared with his wife and daughter was bombed. Silver begged her father to train her, so she could avenge her mother's murder, and though he tried his best to discourage her, he soon realized her potential, and she soon began joining him on hunts. After his death, she assumed command of the Wildpack, and became founder and owner of Silver Sable International.

    Milla Jovovich [Height: 5' 9", Age: 39, Notable Works: The Fifth Element, Resident Evil {Franchise}, Zoolander]: I love Milla, what can I say, she does wonderful work whenever she performs and even if the movies are bad, she's good, or at least so bad she's good. She would be fantastic in a role like Silver Sable.

Dr. Curt Conners/The  Lizard [Height: 5' 11", Age: 50's]: Having lost his arm in an explosion while helping G.I.s, Curt Connors decided to create a formula to regrow his arm. He used the limb regrowth of reptiles as a model. However, the serum transformed him into the Lizard. After being stopped from sending his army of reptiles to conquer the world by Spider-Man he was tricked into drinking an antidote changing him back into Connors.

    John Cusack [Height: 6' 2", Age: 48, Notable Works: Gross Point Blank, The Factory, Lee Daniels The Butler]: John is wonderful, He's so much fun as an actor and he really needs to do a comic book movie. He's so much fun and I think the experience would be enriching for him. It would really show the public a new side of John Cusack.

Dennis Carradine/The Burglar [Height: 5' 9", Age: 40's]: the Burglar became the cellmate of elderly gangster Dutch Mallone. The Burglar learned from Dutch, who talked in his sleep, about a large possession of money the aged gangster had hidden in a suburban home, which the Burglar planned and schemed to get (ironically, the possession had since been devoured by silverfish). Wanting to find out the location of the home where Mallone's possession was, the Burglar successfully robs a television station for information. Peter Parker, who has become a minor celebrity as Spider-Man, did not bother to stop him despite having the opportunity to do so. Learning that the house where Mallone's money had been hidden was the Parker house, the Burglar breaks into it searching for the money, killing Ben Parker (Peter's uncle) when he tries to interfere. Fleeing the scene, the Burglar is chased by police to a warehouse where Spider-Man, wanting to avenge the death of his Uncle Ben, attacks and knocks out the Burglar. It is then that Spider-Man realizes that the man is the thief he had encountered earlier at the television station. The Burglar was later left to be captured by the authorities by Spider-Man, who, realizing he could have prevented Ben's death by simple humanitarian behavior in the earlier encounter, decided to use his powers more responsibly, never again ignoring a crime if he could help it.

    Kirk Acevado [Height: 5' 10", Age: 43, Notable Works: The Walking Dead, Oz, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes]: Kirk has played such a$$holes in film, that this role felt perfectly fine for him. He's not an oscar winner, but he seemes like the perfect person to murder Ben Parker, and it would be fun to bring that character back.

Ezekial Sims [Height: 6' 0", Age: 57]: Ezekiel apparently underwent some form of ritual which granted him the powers of a Spider-Totem. Upon being granted these powers, similar to Spider-Man's powers, he set about amassing a fortune. He soon learnt that, being totemic in nature, he would be beset by those of orders higher up the totemic hierarchy.

    Donald Sutherland [Height: 6' 4", Age: 79, Notable Works: The Hunger Games {Franchise}, M.A.S.H., Don't Look Now]: Donald is a legend. He's been in the business for decades. When it came to Ezekial Sims there was no doubt that Donald was the only person who could play this role perfectly. He's got the right tone as an actor to play Sims.

Dr. Spencer Smythe [Height: 5' 10", Age: 60's]: Spencer Smythe was an inventor of the original Spider-Slayer. He managed to convince J. Jonah Jameson to use it in his campaign against Spider-Man. He also worked with Mark Raxton on creating a liquid metallic alloy for the Spider-Slayers, which eventually turned Raxton into the Molten Man. He next constructed the Spider-Slayer Mark II. As he was dying of radiation poisoning, he wanted to take revenge on J. Jonah Jameson and kidnapped his son John and controlled him to attack the senior Jameson. After this failed and John disappeared, Smythe shackled Jameson and Spider-Man together to a bomb. He set the timer to go off after twenty-four hours because he wanted to see them die, but ultimately he died before this happened. Spider-Man was able to freeze the locking mechanism, allowing the shackle to come loose, which he quickly discarded seconds before it exploded.

    Jonathan Pryce [Height: 6' 0", Age: 67, Notable Works: Tomorrow Never Dies, G.I. Joe Retaliation, Game of Thrones]: Jon Pryce is a ridiculously fun actor, his work  is dynamic and fun. He's got such and edge to him and such scene chewing fun that he felt like a perfect choice for the Elder Smythe, he would absolutely be perfect in the role.

Dr. Alistair Smythe/Spyder-Slayer [Height: 6' 0", Age: 30's]: Alistair Smythe was the son of Spencer Smythe, inventor of the Spider-Slayers - a series of robots designed to destroy Spider-Man. The initial generation of Spider-Slayers were created by Alistair's father and commissioned by J. Jonah Jameson. After Spencer failed to kill Spider-Man - and ended up getting destroyed as a result - Alistair inherited the legacy from his father and gained a new-found hatred toward Spider-Man. He initially worked for the Kingpin but left in disagreement over how to deal with Spider-Man and went solo.

    Joe Anderson [Height: 5' 11", Age: 32, Notable Works: Horns, The Grey, The Crazies]: He's displayed strong performances in so much that it's surprising. He's got a great sense of talent and I think a role like Smythe gives him a chance to to play villain the likes of an evil genius, and he would rock it.

Dr. Adrian Toomes/The Vulture [Height: 5' 11", Age: 60's]: Adrian used his intelligence to become an electrical engineer and inventor, which led him to co-found the small firm of Bestman and Toomes Electronics. His business partner, Gregory Bestman, saw to all administrative affairs. Toomes devoted the bulk of his time to his pet project: an electromagnetic harness that would enable its wearer to fly like a bird. However, this inattention to detail proved disastrous when it came to light that Bestman had been stealing Toomes' share of the company. Physically confronting Bestman, Toomes discovered that exposure to his electromagnetic harness had granted him superhuman strength. Still, he was unable to intimidate his opponent, and Bestman assumed full control of the company in the wake of his partner's threats. Toomes found himself without legal recourse: On paper, at least, Bestman was the firm's sole proprietor. Already an old man, Toomes retired to a farm in Staten Island on his meager savings. There, he continued to develop his flying harness. Realizing the potential for revenge afforded by his groundbreaking invention and new-found strength, Toomes created the costumed identity of the Vulture. He ransacked Bestman's office, hoping to uncover incriminating evidence, then vandalized and robbed the plant after his search proved unsuccessful. Attracted by the easy rewards and thrill of thievery, the Vulture subsequently embarked on a career as a costumed criminal. Only the incessant intervention of the wisecracking, web-slinging super hero known as Spider-Man prevented the stealthy super-villain from achieving his lofty objectives.

    William Fichtner [Height: 6' 0", Age: 58, Notable Works: The Lone Ranger, Drive Angry,  Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles]: Fichtner is hands down one of the most interesting and fun actors to ever watch. His work is just phenomenal, it's fun and it's worth watching. He's a but older and it really gives off an unsettling vibe that makes him perfect for Adrian Toomes. He's got all the right pieces to play the Vulture perfectly.

Cletus Kasady/Carnage [Height: 6' 2", Age: 30's]: Cletus Kasady had a troubled childhood. He killed his grandmother by pushing her down a flight of stairs, and tortured his mother's dog. Afterward, his father apparently killed his mother, and received no defense from Kasady during his trial. As an orphan, Kasady was sent to the St. Estes Home for Boys, where his antisocial behavior made him the target of abuse from both the other orphans and the staff. Kasady gained revenge by murdering the disciplinarian administration, pushing a girl who refused a date with him in front of a bus and burning down the orphanage. Homicidal maniac Cletus Kasady was serving eleven consecutive prison terms when an opportunity for early parole presented itself in the form of his new cell mate: Eddie Brock, human host to a symbiotic costume once worn by Peter Parker. Monster and man had merged to become the villainous Edward Brock Venom, but Brock was separated from the alien during a battle with the web-slinger. While Brock waited for the symbiote to spring him from prison, Kasady entertained him with his homicidal philosophy on life: Even the average person can commit murder, if only he has the courage. As anticipated, the Venom symbiote attempted to free Brock by inciting a destructive jailbreak. Unknown to its human host, the alien was pregnant. It gave birth during the disastrous rescue. Left behind in the midst of the riot that ensued, the symbiote's spawn bonded with Kasady. Empowered far beyond the levels of Spider-Man and Venom, he made good his escape - intent on using his new-found power to disseminate his lethal doctrine and as Carnage, his first victim Gunther Stein was chosen from a Telephone book.

    Zane Holtz [Height: 6' 1", Age: 27, Notable Works: From Dusk Till Dawn, 7 Minutes, Holes]: Zane is an actor that has seriously impressed me with  From Dusk Till Dawn, His work as Richie, taking over for Tarantino, was Amazing, He gave the performance of the series and has shown a serious amount of talent. He would be perfect for a role Like Carnage, it would give him an opportunity to play such an insane character that it could transform his work as an actor.

Dmitri Smerdyakov/Chameleon [Height: N/A, Age: N/A]: Born a Russian citizen named Dmitri Smerdyakov (Russian: Дмитрий Смердяков), Chameleon was the half-brother of Sergei Kravinoff. His parents were Sergei's father and Sonya Smerdyakov, a servant girl. He was taught to hate himself from his arrival in the Kravinoff family. His father hated the sight of his face and his mother considered him a humiliation. The only member in his family who barely tolerated him was the legitimate son Sergei, who was also abusive towards him. In order to impress Sergei, he entertained him by using his impersonation skills on his neighbors and friends. Dmitri was so deeply scarred that he repressed his very identity and came to believe he had been friends with Sergei. However, his own family never knew his true face, which was told by the Black Widow. His ability to impersonate eventually brought him to the attention of the Communist countries, who trained him as a spy. The Chameleon relied on his skills and a mixture of costumes and make-up to conceal his identity. He wore a multi-pocket disguise vest in which he kept the materials he would need to mask himself at short notice.

    Toby Stephens [Height: 5' 11", Age: 45, Notable Works: Die Another Day, Black Sails, The Machine]: Toby is an awesome actor. He's a former Bond Villain and is making some spectacular waves in the show Black Sails. He's got a fun sense of villainy and charm to him that makes him the ultimate candidate as Chameleon.

Lonnie Lincoln/Tombstone [Height: 6' 7", Age: 50's]: Lonnie Lincoln was born an albino in Harlem. He was mocked for his affliction by all but one boy, Joe "Robbie" Robertson, whom he bullied in a twisted vision of "friendship". What Lonnie thought was friendship was actually extorting Robertson, although he considered himself loyal to this "friend". However, Robertson revealed these extortion in the school paper. After High School, Lincoln (who never really finished his studies) and Robertson separated. Lincoln filed his teeth to points and became a street fighter known as Tombstone, while Robertson was working for a local paper. Lincoln became a professional thug for a Philadelphia organized crime mob and executed Ozzy Montana, a local crime boss. One of Robertson's informers called Robertson with the location as it was happening but, when Robertson arrived, Tombstone had killed the informer and Robertson was terrified at the idea of facing Tombstone.   For twenty years, Robertson could not find the courage to testify against Tombstone. Tombstone himself was arrested a number of times but the witnesses always disappeared or changed their minds before testifying. Tombstone had such a reputation that he was hired by the Arranger and went to New York City to work for him. Tombstone recruited mutant Roland Rayburn, later known as Persuader. Eventually, Robertson found the courage to confront Tombstone and saved a tape about his knowledge of Tombstone's past. Robertson agreed to meet Tombstone at Battery Park, where Robertson tried to convince Tombstone to acquiesce to a citizen's arrest. However, Tombstone physically overcame Robertson and broke his back. He would have killed Robertson but his twisted sense of friendship towards him forbade that action. Robertson's tape ended in the hands of Peter Parker, a photographer working for Robertson. Tombstone threatened Parker's wife, Mary Jane Watson, trying to recover the tape. Parker, who was really the costumed crime-fighter Spider-Man, then fought Tombstone in Atlanta. Although Tombstone was stronger than Parker first had thought, Parker managed to defeat him. With Robertson's taped confession, Tombstone was sent to prison.

    Terry Crews [Height: 6' 3", Age: 46, Notable Works: The Expendables {Franchise}, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Gamer]: Terry is a seriously intense actor. Both in a comedic and serious fashion, Hes got a wonderful sense of talent. He's got the strength and talent to play such a villain as Tombstone. He would own the Tombstone role perfectly.

Maxwell Dillon/Electro [Height: 5' 9", Age: 30's-40's]: As a result of experimentation by Justin Hammer, Max Dillon was given the power to control and create electricity. He was sold by Hammer to the Kingpin in exchange for a real-estate development contract. Spider-Man defeated him. Electro later escaped from federal custody, murdering several people in the process. The superhero team the Ultimates re-apprehend him and placed him in S.H.I.E.L.D. custody, along with the Sandman, Kraven the Hunter, Doctor Octopus and the Green Goblin.

    Michael Pitt [Height: 5' 11", Age: 33, Notable Works: I Origins, Boardwalk Empire, NBC's Hannibal]: Michael is a fantastic Actor, commonly used in Spider-Man Casts as Carnage {which works}, Surprising he hasn't popped up as Harry Osborn {Which Would Also Work}, but a role I felt he would be extraordinary in is that of Electro. It's a role that would let Michael show something new about him.

Dr. Mendall Stromm [Height: 5' 10", Age: 60's-70's]: As a child, the only thing that could keep Mendel from dying due to his various sicknesses was his obsession with robots and their parts, and once he became an adult, his obsession became a passion. Norman Osborn, with his eye for talent, took Mendel on as a partner early on in Osborn Industries' history. This partnership soon soured when Mendel was caught with his hand in the cookie jar embezzling from the company. After a brief 10 years in jail, Mendel was ripe with revenge against Osborn. From then on, he dedicated his life to building robots to destroy Osborn Industries. In one twist of fate, Spider-Man, while attempting to stop his robots, kept Osborn from shooting Mendel. The shock associated with his near-death experience caused him to experience it much more closely. Suffering a heart-attack while so close to destroying Osborn was devastating for Mendel, and he built a robot-duplicate of himself (into which he transferred his memories) to take up his cause. The Robot-Master, as the robot was referred to, did not last long, and Spider-Man was ultimately responsible for its destruction. Mendel was the scientist who developed the original Green Goblin serum, and had tested it on himself. This became apparent when Norman had his body exhumed on a hunch some years after his death. To everyone's surprise, Stromm was still barely alive because of the serum. As he became exposed to fresh air again for the first time, Mendel was offered life again by Norman. In exchange for new life, Mendel would have to destroy Spider-Man. Taking up the name "Gaunt", Mendel used Osborn's vast resources in several attempts to ruin Spider-Man, then Ben Reilly. Among the people used were Cell-12, Arcade, Hobgoblin and Regenerator. All the while, Mendel was embezzling once again, this time using it to rebuild new Robot-Master armor, so he could kill Spider-Man himself. Again he was defeated.

    John Noble [Height: 6' 1", Age: 66, Notable Works: Sleepy Hollow, Fringe, The Mule]: John is an awesome actor. A voice of a strong villain and with a sense of fun.  He would be a wonderful in a role like Stromm. It would let him have a villainous voice that hasn't been explored as wide as it could be. John as all the right moves for a role like Stromm.

Norman Osborn/Green Goblin [Height: 5' 11", Age: 60's]: Norman Osborn was just a child when he first became obsessed with acquiring wealth and power. His father, a failed business inventor who claimed that he was swindled out of his inventions and personal fortune, took out his rage on Norman. Norman realized that he could not depend on his father for financial security, so he began working after school and saving every cent he earned. He would not allow himself to become a failure like his father. Norman studied chemistry and electrical engineering in college, and took a number of courses in business administration. One of his teachers, Professor Mendel Stromm, became good friends and later formed a business partnership with Norman. Since Norman put up the bulk of the financing, they called their company Osborn Chemical (or Oscorp). Norman married his college sweetheart and they had a son. Unfortunately, his wife became ill. After she died, Norman buried himself in his work and rarely had time for his son. As the brilliant co-owner of the chemical manufacturer Oscorp, Norman Osborn, loving wealth and power, decided to take control and had his partner Stromm arrested when he found he was committing embezzlement, granting him complete control over the company and making Norman the official CEO of Oscorp. While going through Stromm's notes, he found a secret formula that would make him superhumanly powerful. However, his son Harry, tired of always being ignored and rejected by his father, switched the chemicals in the serum, which turned it green and caused it to explode in his face. Later, at the hospital, Norman found himself thinking more clearly than ever before, not knowing that he would slowly become insane. Attempting to achieve power beyond his wildest dreams, Norman planned to become the most powerful gang-lord of all by uniting all the independent gangs under his leadership in an attempt to gain control over all of New York's crime. To prove his power and establish his reputation, he decided to choose Spider-Man as his victim of choice, and sent two criminals, the Headsman and Scorcher, after Spider-Man. The two were soundly defeated, and then Norman decided to take matters into his own hands. Remembering a giant green goblin monster from childhood nightmares, he created a costume that reflected that monster, and he became the original Green Goblin.

    Michael Keaton [Height: 5' 9", Age: 63, Notable Works: Robocop, Beetlejuice, Batman]: As a character actor you don't get much better then Michael Keaton, now while he doesn't go through magnificent transformations {like Gary Oldman} Keaton is one of the most captivating actors ever to meet the silver screen. He's done some work playing insane {beetlejuice} masked {batman} dangerous {desperate measures} psychotic killer {literally all 3 of those movies} So casting him as the Green Goblin is insanely original and ingenious. I have no doubt that Michael would be perfect as an experienced Green Goblin with a serious grudge.

When Otto discovered his mother dating behind his back, he blew up in rage at her. During the argument, Mary died of a heart attack, leaving Otto without a mother and with bitter feelings. Consumed with guilt, Otto couldn't fully focus during work, and volatile liquids exploded - bombarding the scientist with radiation. The substances left him capable of mentally controlling the arms, but the accident also caused irreversible brain damage - transforming the respected scientist into a megalomaniacal superhuman criminal.

As the Hobgoblin, Roderick went on a blackmail binge meaning to cripple his major competitors. Feeling deficient in lacking the physical power to protect himself, Roderick sought out Norman Osborn's original Green Goblin formula. Modified in hopes of avoiding the insanity-inducing side effects, Kingsley found the formula gave him strength nearly equal that of Spider-Man's

    Sharlto Copley [Height: 6' 0", Age: 40, Notable Works: District 9, Elysium, A-Team]: Like anybody else would really be able to play this type of psycopath any better?

After Gwen was killed by the original Green Goblin, Warren turned his attention towards methods of cloning, inspired by the creation of a full-grown frog to attempt to clone humans.

Kraven's associate (later revealed to be his half-brother) proposed to Kraven he hunt Spider-Man, and thus gave Kraven new purpose in life. Kraven gained power by drinking rare and exotic jungle elixirs given to him by his voodoo priestess lover -- Calypso.

However, he lacked the looks and talent to be a star and the patience to be a director, and saw his career in special-effects to be a dead-end job. When a friend of his jokingly suggested that the quickest way to become famous was to take out a costumed hero, Beck realized that his expertise in illusions could make him an effective super-villain.

In part, this was to support his family. Aleksei's powerful armor, permanently bonded to his form, was modeled after the hide of a rhinoceros.

Randy Couture [Height: 6' 1", Age: 50, Notable Works: The Expendables, The Expendables 2, Big Stan]: This one was a pretty tough choice, I was gonna go with a more Urban oriented actor like Terry Crews but when I thought about it, I felt someone who is more of a meathead would fit this role.

Ann Foley [Notable Works: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Terminator Salvation, Star Trek Into Darkness]: Her work for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Has been a draw for fans of the series, her Deathlok made big waves and her work as a very tactical feel. While the movie itself wasn't stellar, the look of the characters in Terminator 4 were very well conceived. I enjoyed her very toned and fitting work of the future with Star Trek Into Darkness and I feel she would have the right feel to give us a reasonable T.V. Spider-Man Suit that isn't too cheesy.

Series Composer: A film score (also sometimes called film music, background music, or incidental music) is original music written specifically to accompany a film. The score forms part of the film's soundtrack, which also usually includes dialogue and sound effects, and comprises a number of orchestral, instrumental or choral pieces called cues which are timed to begin and end at specific points during the film in order to enhance the dramatic narrative and the emotional impact of the scene in question.

    Bear McReary [Notable Works: The Walking Dead, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Outlander]: Bear has done wonderful work. His themes for each show are perfectly molded to the series they are attatched to. He can certainly take the tone of the series and build the perfect music around it.

Series Developer: the show's creator. They pick the crew and help cast the actors, approve and sometimes write series plots setting it up for a long television run.

    Jedd Whedon [Notable Works: Spartacus, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Dollhouse], Joss Whedon [Notable Works: The Avengers, Avengers Age of Ultron, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.]:, & Drew Goddard [Notable Works: Angel {Select Episodes}, Lost {Select Episodes}, Sinister Six]: Joss and His Brother, Jedd have displayed talent among the Marvel T.V. circuit. Together they had created Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. With Drew, serving together they could certainly build a Spider-Man T.V. Series that works perfectly into the MCU.

Showrunner: Showrunner is a term originating in the United States television industry referring to the person who is responsible for the day-to-day operation of a television series—although such persons are generally credited as an executive producer. The term is also occasionally applied to people in the television industries of other countries. The duties of a showrunner often combine those traditionally assigned to the writer, executive producer and script editor. Unlike films, where directors are typically in creative control of a production, in episodic television the showrunner usually outranks the director.

    Drew Goddard [Notable Works {As A Showrunner/Exec Producer}: Alias, Lost.]: He may not be a popular at the Marvel Offices, but he is a friend of  Wheddon and he's a guy Sony could trust. It would be nice to see him work on Spider-Man as he clearly displayed by taking the Sinister Six project. This might be a better gateway for him to go into Spider-Man's world.

Miles Morales/The Spider-Man [Height: 5' 8", Age: Teens]: After Norman Osborn was arrested by S.H.I.E.L.D, and publicly revealed as the Green Goblin, Osborn Industries was left abandoned. Nearly two months before Peter Parker's death, a thief broke into Osborn Industries. Unknown to the thief a spider genetically enhanced with the Oz formula crawled into his bag.  Miles Morales, a young kid from Brooklyn visited his uncle Aaron Davis against his parents' wishes, because of his criminal past, after being awarded the final spot in a charter school lottery. After being bitten by the Oz-enhanced spider, which emerged from Aaron's bag, Miles discovered he received super-human abilities like camouflage, increased agility, and some sort of stunning blast. After revealing his newly found powers to his best friend, Ganke Lee, both ended in the conclusion he had power similar to Spider-Man's, including wall-crawling. But Miles reacted negatively, as he just wanted to be normal, deciding to leave the heroism to the actual Spider-Man. Months later, Spider-Man died saving his family from Osborn. Miles arrived late to the scene. Struck with grief at not helping Peter Parker before his demise, Miles decided to follow Parker's philosophy -- with great power comes great responsibility -- and so continue Peter's legacy.

    Coy Stewart [Height: 5' 8 1/2", Age: 16, Notable Works: Are We There Yet, Bella and the Bulldog, The Electric Company]: Coy is a good actor for a young kid. He's certainly got the humor and comedic timing to get Miles attempt at whit, He has a strong sense about him and can certainly harness the strength and attitude of Miles. Another neat little addition is one of his first gigs was working on the Television revival of the Electric Company, the original of which featured the first live action incarnation of The Original Spider-Man.

Jefferson Davis [Height: N/A, Age: N/A]:  Jefferson had cut all ties with criminal activities, and despised Aaron for having remained in the old ways, even prohobiting his son Miles from interacting with his uncle. Jefferson was now a man with sensible morals who strived to teach Miles the differences between right and wrong, and lead him down the correct path in life. Jefferson and his wife Rio were present at the lottery drawing for Miles' chance to enter the prestigious Brooklyn Visions Academy, and they were pleased when they discovered their son had been accepted as one of its attendants. Later, while searching for Miles, he bursted into his brother Aaron's home, which resulted in a dispute between the two siblings. Jefferson told Miles about his and Aaron's shared past as a thieves, and how he had worked tirelessly to find a better life for himself. Jefferson has displayed an open dislike of mutants, especially in the wake of Magneto's attack.

    Shemar Moore [Height: 6' 1", Age: 44, Notable Works: Criminal Minds, Motives, The Brother]: A wonderful actor adept at playing cops. Shemar has grown a large fanbase and has been wanted for a comic book role for some time. I find this to be the perfect role for him, it certainly lets him tap into a new area of characterization and I think he would certainly play this role as written by Brian Michael Bendis.

Rio Morales [Height: N/A, Age: N/A]: Rio Morales was the mother of the second Spider-Man, Miles Morales. Unlike her husband, Jefferson, she was in favor of the new Spider-Man and super-heroes. Like her husband, Rio wanted the best for her son and hoped that his experience at Brooklyn Visions Academy would aid his future.

    Alana Del La Garza [Height: 5' 9", Age: 38, Notable Works: Law and Order, Forever, Do No Harm]: A wonderful actress who has time and time again shown a wonderful range of talent. She's a classy actress that has really shown her marks in shows like Law and Order. I find her to be a fitting choice for Rio, both having similar ancestry, and Alana having some talent she is perfect for the role.

Kate Bishop [Height: N/A, Age: Teens]: Kate Bishop was a student at the Brooklyn Visions Academy, and classmate of Miles Morales. One year after Miles' mother died, Kate and Miles began dating. She was unaware that Miles was the new Spider-Man, although he cared about her enough to contemplate telling her about his secret identity. She was shown to have survived the events of Cataclysm, seen kissing Miles in a stairway. Miles revealed to her that he was Spider Man. After realizing he was telling the truth, she ran away from them. After watching Spider-Man fight the Green Goblin on the news, Katie goes to bed, her parents wishing her goodnight before all three say "Hail Hydra."

    Stefanie Scott [Height: 5' 4", Age: 18, Notable Works: A.N.T. Farm, Frenemies, Wreck-It-Ralph]: She's a strong actor and has a great working relationship with Disney, She's got talent and this gives her a chance to not let it go to waste but still keeping inline with her Disney Contract. She is certainly perfect for the role.

Ganke Lee [Height: N/A, Age: N/A]: Ganke was the best friend of Miles Morales and the only person who Miles had shared his secret with. It was Ganke who figured out that Miles carried similar abilities to Spider-Man. He was first alerted of his friend's newfound powers when Miles came bursting into his room and explaining the events that transpired to give him such abilities. Thrilled at Miles's "cool" powers and making the initial assessment that he was a mutant, Ganke made suggestions that he should be a superhero and embrace his abilities; though Miles was much more reluctant to use his powers and wanted to ignore them in pursuit of a normal life. He later made the correct deduction that Miles's abilities were not a product of mutant DNA, but as a result of tampered genetics.

    Ryan Potter [Height: 5' 5", Age: 19, Notable Works: Big Hero 6, Supah Ninjas, Senior Project]: He was beloved as Hiro in Big Hero 6, maybe now it's time for him to join the real Marvel Universe. He's a talented actor, and the role of Ganke is actually perfect for him to be more fun and dramatic with decent material, it flexes his muscles and that's a big plus.

Aaron Davis/The Prowler [Height: N/A, Age: 40's]: Aaron Davis was a burglar and career criminal. His brother used to be his partner in crime. Whereas his brother reformed when he became a father, Aaron continued his criminal activities as the Prowler and became estranged from his brother. While stealing technology from Osborn Industries under orders from Roxxon, a spider genetically enhanced with the Oz formula crawled into his bag and later bit Miles Morales, granting his nephew powers and turning him into the new Spider-Man.

    Michael Jai White [Height: 6' 0",  Age: 47, Notable Works: Spawn, Arrow, Black Dynamite]: Michael has done roles like this before and has made his characters both compelling and nonredeemable. Michael certainly has the talent to make this character something bigger than he already is, and really delve deep to give us the essential take on this character.

Maximus Gargan/El  Scorpiono [Height: N/A, Age: 40's]: Maximus Gargan is on the FBI's Most Wanted list, having fled the country before a federal case could be brought up against him for accusations of murder, assault, and racketeering. Those who fear him call Maximus Gargan the Scorpion. In Mexico, Scorpion became a mob boss and worked with the Prowler. Seeking vengeance from Davis, who stole money from him, Scorpion traveled to New York in search of the Prowler. Upon arriving in New York City, he began to form a plot to become the city's new Kingpin of Crime. The Prowler discovered his nephew was the new Spider-Man and forced him to defeat the Scorpion in order not to tell his parents the truth.

    Amaury Nolasco [Height: 5' 10", Age: 44, Notable Works: Max Payne, Transformers, Prison Break]: Amaury is a strong actor, he's got a sense about him that makes him work perfectly suited for this role. The real performance that brings Amaury into the perfect mindset for Maximus was his work in Prison Break, it showed perfectly well what he was capable of as an actor. He's got range, I'd love to see him use it.
