Rumor: Miles Morales to Star in the New Animated Spider-Man Movie
As much as we loved Tom Holland in Civil War, we were very disappointed to find out that Marvel was going with yet another Peter Parker for their upcoming Spider-Man reboot. Not only have we seen enough Peter Parkers to last a lifetime, but Miles Morales would have added some much-needed diversity to the MCU and superhero movies in general. But now, according to a new rumor, we might get to see an Ultimate Spider-Man after all, as Miles Morales is the star of Sony's new animated Spider-Man movie.

According to the report from Heroic Hollywood, industry sources have confirmed Miles Morales will be Spider-Man in Phil Lord and Chris Miller's animated Spider-Man movie. Heroic Hollywood's Umberto Gonzalez also floated a couple of rumored working titles, which are fairly intuitive: "Miles Morales: The Ultimate Spider-Man" and "The Ultimate Spider-Man: Miles Morales."

As always, this report needs to be taken with a grain of salt, since Gonzalez doesn't specify where his information is coming from beyond "sources." But regardless, we would guess that this is true. Sony went out of their way to clarify that the animated movie is completely separate from the new Spider-Man in the MCU, and the easiest way to distinguish themselves from Marvel is to choose an entirely different Spider-Man. We wish that Morales was chosen to be Spider-Man for a more high-profile live-action movie (played by Donald Glover, of course), but this is a start.

Phil Lord and Chris Miller's animated Spider-Man movie is set to be released on July 20, 2018.
