Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro was recently interviewed by a reporter and cited Spider-Man and specifically the movie Spider-Man 3 as the cause of so much violence in his country. He is quoted as saying,
That’s the trouble, from the beginning until the end there are more and more dead. And that’s one of the series small children love most… because it’s attractive, it’s from comics that are attractive, the figure, the colors and movements… so much so that we finished watching it at four in the morning.
According to the report Venezuela is one of the most violent countries in South America. There were 16,000 murders in 2012. That dang wallcrawler and his lack of responsibility.
