Sony's Animated Spider-Man Movie to Feature Miles Morales

Movie News

Remember that animated Spider-Man movie that Sony are working on? Well, now comes word that the film will actually feature Miles Morales under the Spidey mask rather than Peter Parker.

Sony Pictures Animation confirmed the news, and some brief footage was shown to the press that showcased a Spider-Man suit that’s more in line with the traditional Parker suit rather than the slightly different one associated with Morales. Also shown in the footage were Prowler and a huge Green Goblin stature. The film will be using a style that’s a mixture of classic comic book illustrations combined with CGI.

For those unfamiliar with Miles Morales, he was created by Brian Michael Bendis and Sara Pichelli for the “Ultimate” Marvel world. He took over the Spidey mantle following the tragic death of Peter Parker (seriously, we're still not sure we've recovered from that!). In more recent years, Morales has transitioned from just an “Ultimate” character and has been involved in the standard 616 comic book universe.

There’s yet to be any casting announcements for the film at this stage, and all we really know is that The LEGO Movie’s Phil Lord and Chris Miller are serving as writers and producers on the picture, which will be directed by The Little Prince’s Bob Persichetti and Rise of the Guardians’ Peter Ramsey. The current plan is for this still-to-be-titled animated affair to hit the big screen on December 21st, 2018.
