‘Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse’ Star Shameik Moore Casts Doubt On Live-Action Role

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse star Shameik Moore thinks he’ll be too old to play Miles Morales in live-action by the time the hero is introduced on the big screen.

While Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse finally delivered a version of Miles Morales on the big screen, voice actor Shameik Moore thinks he’d be too old to play the young Web-Slinger by the time the character arrives in live action. The star joined in with ComicBook.com’s Quarantine Watch Party as the director and producers of the film revealed new Easter eggs, deleted scenes and other things that didn’t make it into the theatrical cut.

When ComicBook.com’s Brandon Davis suggested voice actor Shameik Moore could easily play Miles Morales in live-action, the star explained that although the role would be a “dream come true,” he’d likely be too old by the time the character is introduced in either the MCU or the Sony-Verse. So far, Miles has only been alluded to in Spider-Man: Homecoming when The Prowler, played by Donald Glover, referred to his nephew in a scene. Take a look at the star discussing the role on Twitter below.
