Casting Call Suggests Miles Morales Is Involved In Sony Animation’s Spider-Man Film
Speculation was sparked when Backstage published a call for a Sony production titled Cabin Fever, which is widely believed to be a codename for their animated Spider-Man project. According to the listing, the studio is looking to cast a character who sounds remarkably like Morales:
For Terrence, the studio is looking for a male between 13 – 15 who is described as “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.” That definitely sounds an awful lot like Miles Morales!
Before you go assuming that “Pete” is Peter Parker, a description for that character (aged 13 – 16) points to that not being the case. Instead, he’s going to be “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.”
