Even before Marvel confirmed Peter Parker would be the Spider-Man in their reboot, there were rumors that Miles Morales could appear instead. The popularity of the character and the controversy of doing a Spider-Man movie without Peter Parker obviously fueled a lot of these rumors, but now there’s a hint that we could still see Miles in the movie.
Yahoo asked the director of Marvel’s Spider-Man movie, Jon Watts, if Miles could make an appearance and he said:
â€œI canâ€™t talk about that, because, you know, that will reveal too much,â€ he tells us. â€œWeâ€™re still writing the storyâ€¦we havenâ€™t finished all the way through the story yet, so who knows.â€
He could be cagey because he doesn’t want to reveal anything about the story, and Miles isn’t in it. Or Miles could be in it in a supporting role like Rhodey in Iron Man and they don’t want to reveal that yet. In the new post-Secret Wars Marvel Universe, Miles and Peter will both be Spider-Man in separate books so it wouldn’t be entirely shocking if they did something similar in the MCU.
