News has been scarce lately on the animated Spider-Man film that is to be coming out on December 21st, 2018. However, some casting calls have surfaced and seem to be pointing towards Miles Morales being the focus of the film.
“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.”
This character is code-named Terrence but the description is almost identical to that of Miles. As for the character Pete, his description does not match up with that of Peter Parker who many may initially believe this to be talking about.
“A young, slighgtly geeky, Asian-American teen; he’s smart, sweet, and encouraging; although very unlike any of the friends Terrence had in his old Brooklyn neighborhood, Pete proves to be a good fit for Terrence making good decisions.”
This sounds like it could very well be Ganke Lee, Miles’ best friend in his current comic series. Neither of these characters have been confirmed by their actual names, but it seems pretty safe to assume (for Miles at least) that these are in fact their character descriptions. Be sure to stay tuned for updates on the project!
