‘Miles Morales: Spider-Man’ Comic Has MCU Captain America Easter Egg

Miles Morales Captain America MCU

Admittedly, Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe isn’t the first person to say “I can do this all day,” but it’s become a signature phrase of his since he first uttered it in The First Avenger. So naturally, as is often the case with comic books, the comics will borrow or homage moments that have been made famous by their big budget and big screen counterparts. Case in point, the most recent issue of “Miles Morales: Spider-Man.”

While the world at large and general audiences are being introduced to Miles Morales via Into the Spider-Verse, the comic side of things has Miles combatting a familiar face from Spider-Man’s rogues gallery. In “Miles Morales: Spider-Man #1,” Miles has a run-in with the Rhino and after Miles manages to stun him, and exerting a lot of energy in the process, he tells the Rhino that he can do this all day.

Again, Cap in the films may not be the first person to ever say this, but it’s certainly become more popularized because it’s been used in the films, as most recently as Captain America: Civil War. Though in this instance, Miles Morales isn’t being bullied by Rhino. In fact, Rhino wasn’t even looking for a fight in the first place. But hey, it wouldn’t be Spider-Man if there wasn’t an opportunity to throw a quick quip in there for extra measure.

And given how “I can do this all day” is more well-known because of its context in the MCU, it’s natural that the comics may be homaging that very line from Cap. What do you think, though? Is this an homage to Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe or just a coincidence, given how common the line actually is? Let us know in the comments below.

“Miles Morales: Spider-Man #1” is available at comic book shops now.

What We Learned About ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ At CCXP

Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios shared some brand new information on their highly-anticipated sequel, Spider-Man: Far From Home. The film, which is the follow-up to 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming marks the return of Tom Holland as Peter Parker following the release of Avengers: Endgame and will also feature the cinematic debut of Mysterio, who is portrayed by Academy Award-nominee Jake Gyllenhaal.

Here are some of the things we have learned about Spider-Man: Far From Home following its presentation at the 2018 Comic Con Experience (CCXP) in Brazil. Click “Next” to find out.

1. Peter Parker & Michelle Will Be Involved Romantically

In Spider-Man: Homecoming, we saw Peter crushing on Liz Allan (Laura Harrier), who has since moved away from Queens, New York with her mother following the fallout of her father Adrian Toomes’ (Michael Keaton) crimes as the Vulture. With Liz now out of the picture, we have Michelle Jones (Zendaya) also known as “MJ” that Peter has his eyes on. In Homecoming, Michelle seemed to tow the line between cold and friendly to Peter, with hints that she was romantically interested in him the whole time.

Now, it looks like Peter and Michelle have since grown closer with one another following the events of Homecoming. Perhaps their romantic connection will play a significant role in Peter’s motivations in Far From Home. 

2. Aunt May Supports Her Nephew As Spider-Man In Far From Home

Aunt May (Marisa Tomei) found out about her beloved nephew Peter’s secret at the end of Homecoming. Now that she’s aware that he continues his hero work as our Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man, she is also fully-supportive of him despite the fact that he continues to put himself in danger.

3. Happy Hogan & Aunt May Share A Romantic AffairSpider-Man Far From Home Happy Hogan Aunt May

This one comes as a bit of a surprise. Based off of information from CCXP, it appears that Aunt May is romantically involved with none other than Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau). This certainly won’t be awkward for Peter.

4. Spider-Man & Mysterio Start Are Brought Together By Nick Fury

The narrative for Far From Home will begin with Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) bringing Spider-Man and Quentin Blake/Mysterio together for a mission in which they must hunt down the Elementals. Mysterio has some knowledge about the Elementals and wants to defeat them to make the world safer.

The unlikely duo has been described to have a “brothers in arms” dynamic. What could possibly go wrong?

5. Spider-Man & Mysterio’s Relationship Is The Central Focus

During the presentation at CCXP, Gyllenhaal revealed that Far From Home will be a unique Spider-Man film due to the relationship between the beloved hero and Mysterio:

“The central point of the film is the relationship of Peter with Mysterio, which is a completely new dynamic. Tom Holland is the best Spider-Man. There’s no one more professional than him.”

Seeing Holland and Gyllenhaal acting alongside eachother will certainly be a highlight.
