The JRE podcast host recently had comedians, Bert Kreischer and Tony Hinchcliffe, as his guest on the famous podcast show. During the episode, the trio discussed stuff surrounding Marvel movies.

And this is how Joe Rogan stumbled upon the Spiderman topic. At first, he criticized the franchise for changing its lead actors. Further on, he also condemned the repeated story the movie shows with new actors.

Rogan said, “If I was some gangster Hollywood executive type guy. And I was like listen as long as we can pay this Peter Parker 20 million bucks a film. We can pay this guy 100,000 and make him a star.”

“And at the end of that, we go, hey we got this new guy named Tom Holland. And we really think he is gonna be good at the role, and we gonna just start the f**king movie from the beginning,” Rogan added.

“They tell the whole story again, just slightly different. He gets bit by a spider becomes spiderman. How many f**king times are they gonna tell us the same story that we have seen over and over again? When they have done it already three of four times with different Peter Parkers,” Rogan concluded.

These views from him also triggered a question from his fans if Rogan has friends from Hollywood?
