Sony Confirms Miles Morales For ‘Spider-Man’ Animated Film

Spider-Man Miles Morales MovieSony has officially confirmed that the Marvel character of Miles Morales a.k.a. Spider-Man will be coming to the big-screen in a new animated film that is set for December 21, 2018.

“.@PhilipLord and @ChrizMillr are bringing the Miles Morales story to the big screen in all-new animated stand-alone SPIDER-MAN feature. Experience the upcoming stand-alone animated SPIDER-MAN feature, directed by Bob Persichetti and Peter Ramsey, in theaters 12/21/18. ?️”

Heroic Hollywood’s own Umberto Gonzalez first broke the news back in 2016 that Morales would be getting his own animated feature.

During the Sony Animation Presentation, screenwriter Phil Lord and one of the producers, Chris Miller described the film as having “a lot of heart, a lot of action, and a lot of laughs.”

A few weeks ago, a casting call had gone out for the lead role which is described as follows:

“A young African-American/Puerto Rican teen from Brooklyn; he is new to this suburban school and now feeling out of place, overwhelmed, pressured with new responsibilities, and dealing with puberty; while trying to fit in he must do his best to stay out of trouble; along the way in developing his identity he’s losing old friends but now making a new one, Pete.”

Sony’s untitled Miles Morales/Spider-Man animated film, directed by Bob Persichetti and Peter Ramsey, comes out in theaters on December 21, 2018.

    But he’s boring, every one of his story lines goes “I don’t want to be a hero, but I must be a hero, oh hey, it’s Peter’s supporting cast here to prop me up because I have the personality of a wet towel”

    I wonder whether Sony will make it clear in their marketing that this animated feature is about a Spider-Man named Miles Morales? If they don’t, I’m sure a lot of people will go to this film thinking it is about Peter Parker, and that would be a bait and switch.

      This was my very thought as well.
