Sony has confirmed that their upcoming animated Spider-man movie will indeed feature Miles Morales rather than Peter Parker who is currently in the MCU as Tom Holland.
The company have decided to separate their movie front he MCU and introduce the hero for the first time on the big screen and, we’re guessing, hoping it will lead to a new Spidey universe on screen.
We’ve suspected it would be Miles for a while now.
Could be a bit confusing for the casual viewer? May, maybe not.
The official press realise reads:
UNTITLED ANIMATED SPIDER-MAN (December 21, 2018 release)
