In the midst of racist accusations, a Spider-Man: Lotus fan film was swept up ...

Spider-Man remains as popular as ever thanks to the character''s largest solo film, Spider-Man: No Way Home, which is already scheduled for a re-release at the end of this summer. However, the web-slinger is also at the center of some huge backlash over controversy stemming from the highly-discussed fan film, Spider-Man: Lotus.

Spider-Man: Lotus, which isn''t directly associated with Marvel Studios or Sony Pictures, focuses on a story in which Peter Parker deals with the loss of Gwen Stacy, the effects of which fans saw for a moment in Spider-Man: No Way Home. The first trailer for the film, which launched on October 20, 2018, garnered an impressive 1.6 million views, but the upcoming release is now under serious scrutiny owing to the recently-revealed controversy.

In the past couple of weeks, Wayne Warden and Gavin Konop, the film''s leading actor and director, have had a lot of backlash from fans because to a series of abusive comments from their social media accounts.

Fans are sharing their memories of what''s going on, which is a particularly worrying moment with the world''s climate as it currently exists.

The rest of this article includes news about extreme racism, including the NSFW terminology.

After news about the controversy surrounding the leading actor and director of Spider-Man: Lotus emerged, the independentfan film is currently on Twitter.

After Watts acknowledged the film''s existence, direct messages from leading actor Wayne Warden and director Gavin Konop were revealed, which included extreme racist rhetoric. The string of messages were believed to include an insult toward the director of Spider-Man: No Way Home, although this particular example appears to be asphotoshopped.

Both Warden and Konop have each posted statements on their Twitter page, with Warden attributing the language to his parents'' school, and Konop taking a break altogether. However, fans are now sharing their opinions about the situation, noting how regretful and depressing it is.

"Tbh Spider-Man Lotus had significant red flags raised as soon as the director got all high and powerful over refusing to pay for storyboard artists after fundraising all of the proceeds for the film."

"I feel sorry for Jon Watts," says the author of Spider-Man Lotus, and Gavin had the skill to immediately talk shit towards him while denigrating the people who are working on his own project. Watts was an excessive class act for this.

"Imagine andrew is logging into his burner account for the day and deciding to see why Spider-Man Lotus is trending."

Spider-Man: Lotus is changing once more for reasons nobody could''ve known. Me included. During my time on Lotus, I only interacted with a few crew members, but I never felt any racism in the past or present. I wish I had been more grateful for my time on Lotus, because I realized that this is because I got through some of my more technically proficient abilities. It''s a shame for it to be attached to a project with this type of legacy right now.

Lotus Crew Facing Consequences of Accusations

The film industry as a whole has increasingly attempted to get to a better place in the last few years, although there is still a lot of controversy in the spotlight.

Because of Ezra Miller''s off-screen drama and the Johnny Depp vs. Amber Heard civil case, Warner Bros. has dealt with its own uncomfortable situations, but this one from the Marvel team is a little different.

Spider-Man: Lotus will be released to the public, but this news about Wayne Warden and Gavin Konop has unveiled its legacy, particularly with how much hype it had built. It will be something that fans can make certain that standards and maturity are met in any movie-making endeavor.
