At this point the Spider-Man film franchise is feeling a bit like the Brady Bunch only instead of Marcia it”s “Peter, Peter, Peter!” By the time Marvel gets a crack at the webslinger in a stand-alone movie in 2017, Parker will have been rebooted three times in fifteen years. That”s an intense amount of turnover, even by superhero standards.
So much so that fans had suggested perhaps it was time for Peter to step aside and let Miles Morales take the reins. Morales was first introduced in the ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN universe back in 2011. While controversy raged at first over having a non-white Spider-Man (Miles is of Black Hispanic descent), the teen hero soon became a fan favorite. However, with the casting of Tom Holland as the MCU Spider-Man, it appeared an appearance by Morales was not in the cards.
Or is it?
Yahoo! Movies spoke to “Spider-Man” director Jon Watts about his upcoming film “Cop Car” but it didn”t take long for the conversation to turn to Marvel. When point blank asked if Miles could still be part of the MCU, Watts didn”t say no.
“I can”t talk about that, because, you know, that will reveal too much. We”re still writing the story…we haven”t finished all the way through the story yet, so who knows.”
Personally? I”d love it if somehow Peter Parker got ahold of the Reality Gem and – in all his infinite teenage genius wisdom – screwed up royally and teleported both Miles Morales and Spider-Gwen into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Hey, a girl can dream.
