Looks like the Sony animated Spider-man outing is a Miles Morales story after all …

December 31st, 2016 by Marc Comments


With Sony moving ahead with its own animated Spider-man movie which will not be related to the MCU, we’ve suspected for a while that it would focus on Miles Morales (here) since Peter Parker is doing his thing with The Avengers.

And now it looks like that’s exactly what’s happening.

A casting call has emerged for a movie codenamed Cabin Fever that “chronicles the adventures of two unlikely friends, Terrence and Pete,” and everyone reckons it’s actually Sony’s Spider-man animated movie.

For Terrence, the studio is looking for a male between 13 – 15 who is described as “a young African-American/Puerto Rican teen from Brooklyn; he is new to this suburban school and now feeling out of place, overwhelmed, pressured with new responsibilities, and dealing with puberty; while trying to fit in he must do his best to stay out of trouble; along the way in developing his identity he’s losing old friends but now making a new one, Pete.”

We can certainly see why everyone reckons this is indeed Miles Morales. However, Pete is unlikely to be Peter Parker as he is described at being aged 13-16 and is “a young, slightly geeky, Asian-American teen; he’s smart, sweet, and encouraging; although very unlike any of the friends Terrence had in his old Brooklyn neighborhood, Pete proves to be a good fit for Terrence making good decisions.”

Now it’s hardly confirmation at this point but it looks like we now know it’s a Mile Morales movie we’re getting… and we hope that Sony can put together a good outing because Morales deserves a proper big screen outing.

What do you all think? Let us know in the usual ways, guys…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
