The webslinger co-creator jokingly says, 'One sex is enough for anybody,' in response to the question of Spidey's sexuality.
It turns out that Andrew Garfield's idea of a gay Spider-Man has shocked the hero's co-creator Stan Lee. The British-born actor who began taking over the role of Peter Parker from Tobey Maguire ever since "The Amazing Spider-Man" has made headlines after suggesting that Parker should explore his sexuality.
At Fandomfest in Louisville, Kentucky, Lee gave his response to the suggestion. "He's becoming bisexual? Really? Who have you been talking to?" he drew laughs as shown in the Comic Book video. The man who also co-created Iron Man, Thor and the X-Men among others went on joking, "I don't know ... seriously, I don't know anything about that ... I figure one sex is enough for anybody."
Earlier this month, Garfield told Entertainment Weekly mag that he actually wanted a new take on the relationship between his character and Mary Jane Watson. " '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?" he said.
He even named Michael B. Jordan as the one he wished to be his gay lover. To VH1, the "Fruitvale Station" actor admitted he had heard of Garfield's wish. "No thoughts on that, but I am a fan of Andrew. He's a funny guy - he's got a sense of humor," Jordan said. "It was fun, I laughed at it."
