Tom Holland (The Impossible) may be the current occupant of the suit in Sony Pictures and Marvel's current live action Spider-Man films, but Miles Morales is getting his shot in the untitled animated movie headed our way.
Sony Pictures announced recently that the character – who already appears in animated form, voiced by Donald Glover (Community) in a Disney XD series – will be graduating to cinemas via the movie from writers Phil Lord and Chris Miller (The Lego Movie). "What inspired us the most is that anyone can where the mask. You can be any race creed or colour," the pair said via a video message at a presentation for Sony Pictures' planned slate, while promising plenty of both action and laughs.
Glover (who also has a role in Spider-Man: Homecoming) won't likely be the voice for Morales on the big screen (though we would be happy if he did), we do know that Bob Persichetti and Peter Ramsey (Rise Of The Guardians) are sharing the director's chair and that it has a planned US and UK release of 21 December 2018. There will be more information to come. As for Spider-Man: Homecoming, that swings on to our screens on 7 July.
