Miles Morales rumored to be the focus of Sony's animated Spider-Man film

Spider-Man Miles Morales

With Tom Holland's excellent turn as Peter Parker/Spider-Man in CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR, Marvel has successfully convinced fans that the character is finally in the right hands. With excitement steadily increasing for Tom Holland's solo SPIDER-MAN flick, you could be forgiven for forgetting that it's not the only Spidey film on the horizon. Phil Lord and Chris Miller have been developing an animated SPIDER-MAN film for Sony and according to Heroic Hollywood, it will aim to set itself apart from its live-action counterpart by using a completely different incarnation of the web-slinger.

The outlet reports that it won't be Peter Parker doing whatever a spider can this time around, but Miles Morales, a 13 year old boy from Brooklyn who took over the mantle of Spider-Man after he gained similar abilities. We'll have to take this with a grain of salt for now, but if true, it seems like a very smart move for Sony. We're likely to get several SPIDER-MAN films with Tom Holland in the role, so using Miles Morales in the animated feature will keep them from stepping on their own feet down the line. Plus, a different spin on the Spider-Man mythos is always appealing. The as-yet-untitled animated SPIDER-MAN film is due to hit theaters on December 21, 2018.

Sound off folks, what do you make of this rumour?

You know, you can make Peter Parker black. He's a fictional character, you can make his asian, hispanic, or middle eastern for all I care. Just so long as his race isn't the diving force of his character, which it never has been before. I care more about how he is written and what he does than how he looks

The magic words here are Phil Lord and Chris Miller

Their track record is enough to ensure that this version of Spider-Man will be worth watching, at least.

I don't think it would distract much from the mainline films though, since it's animated. I could be wrong though.

On the contrary, I think Tom Holland's Spider-man makes Miles Morales irrelevant. The most important difference between Peter Parker and Morales, more so than their race, is their age. Morales allowed writers to go back to writing teenage Spider-man stories again. Having 2 teenage Spider-men at the same time means that most stories will probably feel very similar.

You're not wrong, but the tone and origin for Morales is still a significant factor I think, since in his universe Spider-Man is dead. He's one of the people Peter inspired, I think that's an interesting angle for an animated flick. He's trying to live up to, what is in his mind, and ours, the real Spider-Man. Maybe I like this idea because I loved Batman Beyond so much though.

Well, Ultimate Spider-Man was already Marvel's attempt to return to the young, inexperienced Peter Parker. That particular version of the character died in the comics at an age only slightly older than Miles Morales, and (spoilers!) returned to life alongside Miles not long before the whole Ultimate line was merged by the most recent company-wide crossover event. So no, Tom Holland's Spider-Man does not necessarily make Miles Morales irrelevant because of age. Heck, they both coexist in their

I sometimes don't get the blind love fans have for Marvel. First off, isn't Spider-man technically in the same hands (Sony). Second, none of the MCU films yet have been as great as Spider-man 2, so I am in no way convinced that this second reboot is going to be the best yet. Yeah, he was fun to see in Civil War, but whether that translates in to a good solo film remains to be seen.

Didn't he voice the very same character in a recent Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon?

Yes he did.That guy is awesome. The thing I like about Morales as a character though is that he's not black Peter Parker. He's a guy trying his best to fill Peter's shoes after he died.
