First, I lived through all 3 releases of the Spiderman franchise in the 21st century. If anything can be said, its that the third reboot within a decade is going to be met with scrutiny if nothing else. This one did it right. If you have a problem with a white male protagonist in the 21st century you might just be a bigoted prejudice asshat--but at least you're not 'racist' or 'sexist' right? (whatever) This one is very politically correct. Several if not all the female characters are featured as being strong leaders, from MJ (who is suppose to be an Irish redhead as she was written, but is indeed politically cast) to May and further reflection of PCifying the characters: Flash (who was suppose to be another white male, but it's nice to see an example of just real white males being the target of bullying is in highschool today) and "Ned" aka the guy in the chair; this casting and writing was done spot on. It might not be a feminist wet dream like every other politically cliché franchise out there right now but you know what? There are more views in the world today than the 'feminist frame' and if feminism was about EQUALITY then there wouldn't be a problem with challenging it once in awhile to be a little more inclusive, like this franchise appears to be doing a wonderful job of handling. It's a brave new world, and nobody (not even cis het white males) deserves to be a victim in it--so if you feel powerful by becoming the example of everything your idealism stands against--then you might just be rebooting a cycle of hate, instead of practicing equality.
