Miles Morales is the next main Spider-Man in Marvel's Cinematic Universe

By Dalmy AlvesPublished 3 years ago 3 min read

Miles already exists in the Marvel Universe of the cinemas, but it looks like the character could be making his faces known soon.

Yes, and as it seems, he won't come from another land in Marvel's multiverse, he already exists in the same land as Tom Holland's Peter and we can get an idea and certainty of this because of the first Tom Holland's Peter movie, where Donald Glover plays Miles' uncle, Aaron Davis.


And who is Miles' uncle? He is Prowler one of the Miles' biggest villains in the comics, and in the first Peter movie we saw that he is someone who does like to steal so he is confirmed as Miles Morales' villain, this is something that Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales Spider-Man game for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 and the easter eggs in the first Spider-Man movie confirmed.

In Marvel's contract with Tom Holland, this is Tom's last film to make way for a new Spider-Man, because it is known that in this No Way Home film a spider man will die and if this spiderman is Tom Holland? Because Miles Morales is part of the same earth so just link one thing with the other.

Miles Morales' Spider-Man has similar powers to Peter Parker's which were granted to them by the bite of a genetically modified spider at Oscorp labs, however, he had an update of powers such as invisibility, he can also control the natural electricity generated by his body and has learned to use the power to create attacks. The most famous of these is the so-called Venom Blast, in which he can electrocute his enemies and even destroy electrical circuits.

And all of this we wait to see how it will be adapted in Marvel's Cinematic Universe, some even say they already have an actor to play Miles Morales, the hype and expectation for these moments are high and that's what moves cinema, that's what makes cinema a great business.

But why a black Spider-Man?

The concept of a black Spider-Man was first discussed a few months before the November 2008 election of Barack Obama as president of the United States. Marvel Comics' then editor-in-chief Axel Alonso describes the catalyst: "When we were planning Ultimatum, we realised we were on the verge of electing the first African-American president and we recognised that it might be time to take a good look at one of our icons."

I loved how the whole team thought of bringing in such an important hero taking inspiration from Barack Obama's election as president, I believe Barack Obama is aware that he was the inspiration for this hero who brought representation for black people, and him as president was a landmark because he represented so much too, black people started to believe more than they can get as far as Obama got.

Miles Morales is a character that will be very promising in the movies and will bring with him a new phase in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with incredible villains and still have to deal with the villains of Peter Parker, but in the comics, we know that death is a matter of time, because after a while Miles discovers that Peter is alive and gains a friend and a mentor, will we see the same Marvel Cinematic Universe?

Kevin Feige can adapt without often follow exactly as it is in the comics, some fans like it and others do not, I even don't always like it because I get the expectation of seeing something from the comics on film and not always happens the same way.
