We know that Marvel Studios and Sony are collaborating on launching a new Spiderman franchise after Andrew Garfield starrer Amazing Spiderman series couldn’t yield rich dividends to Sony. In the new franchise, the popular actor Tom Holland has been cast as Peter Parker/Spiderman, the audience is very excited about him now as he totally nailed it in Captain America Civil War and pulled off a surprisingly good performance. The studio has finalized on making first Spiderman movie based on “Spiderman Homecoming” storyline with Vulture possibly as the big villain.
There were rumors earlier about the prospect that the new Spiderman in the Marvel cinematic universe may not be the Peter Parker version, as it’s been explored many times in great detail by multiple film-makers. But, we did get another Peter Parker in Tom Holland despite calls by fans to diversify and trying something new onscreen. Well, now it seems that the wishes of fans may have been granted at least partly.
Heroic’s Hollywood’s Umberto “El Mayimbe” Gonzalez is reporting that Miles Morales will feature in the upcoming animated film that is set to hit theaters in 2018. Moreover, a quote from Sony Pictures chairman Tom Rothman from last year’s CinemaCon seems to substantiate claims that the animated movie might introduce Miles Morales version of a web-slinger instead of Peter Parker.
He said, “The film will exist independently of the projects in the live-action Spider-Man universe, all of which are continuing.”
The animation movie is written and produced by Phil Lord and Chris Miller (LEGO movie). It makes great sense for Sony to differentiate its animated version of Spiderman from Marvel’s portrayal of the character, Miles Morales perfectly fits the bill. He donned the mantle in Marvel comics after Peter Parker died in 2011.
