Miles Morales, the black-hispanic version of Spiderman, is set to get his own solo movie. Reports have it that as part of Sony Pictures Animation’s media presentation last January 18, producers of the standalone animated Spider-Man movie shared the awesome news that their storyline will indeed feature Miles.
I think the timing is awesome specially nowadays with the issue of racism affecting US, at least the minorities get to be represented.
The storyline has yet to be announced though, but expect “a lot of heart, a lot of action, and a lot of laughs” as per Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, directors of Sony and Marvel’s untitled animated movie.
As of now, it looks like the Miles-centric movie won’t connect with the live-action Marvel Cinematic Universe – in which Tom Holland plays the Peter Parker version of Spidey.
So let’s watch out for that!
