Will there be a live-action version of Miles Morales’ Spider-Man?
Yes, there will be a live-action version of Miles Morales’ Spider-Man. Amy Pascal, a producer at Sony Pictures, confirmed that a live-action film centered around Miles Morales is in the works. This announcement came after the character’s successful appearances in animated films, video games, and the extremely popular Marvel comics.
However, what universe Miles Morales will inhabit is still shrouded in mystery. There’s speculation about whether he’ll be integrated into Sony Pictures’ Spider-Verse, alongside characters like Venom, Morbius, Kraven, and Madame Web, or if he’ll swing into the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) beside Tom Holland’s Peter Parker. There is also the possibility that he might jump between the two universes, as some characters have done in recent times.
While the live-action Miles Morales’s entry into the MCU hasn’t been officially announced by Marvel, it seems like an inevitable event, especially considering the wealth of talented, emerging actors capable of embodying this iconic role
For instance, Caleb McLaughlin, known for his role as Lucas in Stranger Things, has been a popular choice among fans to play Miles Morales in live-action. Despite the confirmation of a live-action Miles Morales movie, his presence within the MCU remains pending. Delays in updates might have been influenced by the recent WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes.
