Spider-Man, the iconic comic character who has featured in a series of blockbuster films, must not be portrayed on screen as a homosexual, or as belonging to any race other than white, according to an agreement between Marvel Comics and Sony Pictures, which was revealed in an email released as the result of a cyberattack on the film studio.
 
Portions of a 2011 licensing agreement between the two companies, published by Gawker, includes a list of “Mandatory Spider-Man character traits,” which requires that the character is male, does not use torture, does not use foul language, does not smoke, abuse alcohol or sell drugs and is not a homosexual.

The document also reveals a list of mandatory character traits for Spider-Man's alter-ego, Peter Parker, and stipulates that he too, must be a Caucasian heterosexual.
Interestingly, however, the document does include the caveat that the stipulation on sexuality only applies as long as Marvel has not portrayed the character as a homosexual in the comic book series.
