At this point, the reboot of Spider-Man should look transparently ridiculous to just about everyone (as if the fact that they’re rebooting a highly successful franchise within ten years of its release wasn’t enough). The production has reportedly hired C. Thomas Howell to swing with Spider-Man.

This reporter is simply speculating that Howell won’t do blackface for the role, but with Donald Glover unfairly out of the running, anything is possible.

In truth, Howell is an averagely talented actor who has been out of the spotlight long enough to make a Travolta-esque comeback (a reboot of his own), and a side role in a huge film might just be the first step in that process. If nothing else, it gives us all an excuse to watch The Outsiders again. Oddly enough, someone out there can probably start thinking of that movie for a reboot, too. Might as well.
