Marvel announces new Miles Morales-led comic book titled Spider-man

06.22.2015

Well, the Marvel Universe is about to get a little confusing. Marvel recently concluded their Secret Wars event that ended their Ultimate comic series and introduced an all-new, streamlined and unified comics universe that they promise is permanent going forward (yeah, right). With many changes to the comics out there, some ending and some starting, one big change is that the new Marvel will feature not one, but two Spider-men.

Marvel.com revealed today that later this year, Miles Morales will headline the new Spider-man series. That's right, not Amazing or Spectacular, just Spider-man. Starting with issue #1, the new series will follow the events of Secret Wars and place Miles in a unique situation.

In this new universe, Miles Morales is "THE" Spider-man and a member of The Avengers. But, where in the Ultimate comic Peter Parker was dead, this new combined universe will feature a living Peter who serves as a mentor to Miles. The teaser image above also showcases both versions of Spider-man co-existing, which means we will see a world where there are two webslingers!

Marvel Studios has been desperately trying to find a new lead for SPIDER-MAN with Kevin Feige proclaiming over and over that it will be Peter Parker. Miles Morales has been a very popular character since his introduction and has long been rumored as a potential big screen character. Depending on how well this new combined universe is received, could we be far off from seeing two Spider-men on the big screen at the same time?

SPIDER-MAN hits theaters on July 28, 2017.

And the general public says eh? Comics are just an after thought for Marvel now. If they didn't need them to pull content from I guarantee you they would stop making them. They just need to go ahead and admit that every 2 years they will completely reinvent everything, as trying to keep a continuous story running for 30 or more years restricts their movie content. And the movies are what they are about now.

90 percent of the movie audience has no clue what happened back in issue 12 of

90 percent of the movie audience has no clue what happened back in issue 12 of series 7 or the new universe, back to the cross over phase war series, and the studios know this and make the movies accordingly.

I really only buy Batman comics so this won't really affect me but if I did buy Spiderman comics, I'd definitely pass on this. Just like how Wayne is the only true Batman, Peter Parker is the only Spiderman for me

Spider-man Inc! Worked for Batman comics. I hope Marvel does a better job at fixing their continuity issues than DC did. I much prefer DC but man every time they try to fix their continuity (and it has been many times in the last 10 years) they only make it worse.

Don't care for Miles. Hopefully it will be Peter Parker for Civil War.

This is why i cant get into comic books

there are too many universes, story lines, and alternate narratives. This is what i like about the Marvel Cinematic Universe, one central timeline. Ant Man takes place after Age of Ultron, this episode of Agents of Shield happens before these episodes of Daredevil. A singular timeline to connect all these different franchises. The comic books have so many different universes and different time periods, i have no idea where to start.

I was really hoping DC would clean everything up with

I was really hoping DC would clean everything up with their new 52 but nope, still multiple different universes within the new 52. i would try to get into them if they were just a single shared universe, instead of having to sort out which is amazing Spiderman, which is Spectacular Spiderman, ultimate, 2099, Next Generation, Antispiderman, zombie Spiderman, and Spiderpig.

Yeah, i do the graphic novels occasionally, i treat them like movies, each in its own universe with its own rules (unless i find direct sequels like kickass 2). I also read the civil war story line, but only the comics directly involved, none of the surrounding story arcs

Part of DC's appeal is the whole multiverse thing, but if you're not into that you can still read around it. If you find a title you like and stick with it the greater complexities of the comic universes don't have to matter that much.

Thats more like it....

See this is what I'm talking about here. Why change the race of an established character when anyone with half a brain can create a unique character that comes with their own back story that falls in line with the rest of the created universe. Miles Morales is popular because he IS NOT Peter Parker. I think most people would welcome seeing him and Parker together on screen, it could add a whole new dynamic to the Spidey mythology.

Let''s hope for more! And perhaps some heroes that are completely new ( I'm down but he's of course not entirely original for obvious reasons).

" Miles Morales is popular because he IS NOT Peter Parker."

Maybe, but he's also popular because he uses Peter Parker's alias and wears a similar costume. To me, two Spider-men is one too many and I don't see how Marvel can get away from this dead-end, considering we're pretty much talking about the most irreplaceable character in their line-up.

Of course, this is also the same company who canceled Fantastic Four, so what do I know?
