Animated SPIDER-MAN Movie Finds Miles Morales in DOPE Star

In Marvel’s multiverse, there are many Spider-Mans, but only one Miles Morales! Back in January, Sony confirmed the rumor that Miles Morales will headline the upcoming animated Spider-Man movie. Now, Miles’ voice has been found!

Shameik Moore

Heat Vision is reporting that The Get Down star Shameik Moore has been signed to play Morales in the animated Spider-Man. Nerdist has reached out to Sony for confirmation of this news, but we are still awaiting an official reply. Moore would actually be only the second actor to voice Miles, as Donald Glover originated the voice for the Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon.


It was actually Glover who helped inspire Brian Michael Bendis and Sara Pichelli to create Miles after there was a backlash against the rumors tying Glover to the part of Peter Parker on the big screen. In response, Bendis and Pichelli introduced a new Spider-Man who was biracial. Following the death of Parker in the Ultimate Marvel Universe, Miles Morales headlined his own Ultimate Spider-Man comic and he quickly proved to be popular among fans. So much so that Miles is now fully incorporated in the Marvel Universe as both Spider-Man and Peter Parker’s protégé. Miles has even joined the Avengers and co-founded the new iteration of the Champions.


The report from Heat Vision also suggests that former Sabretooth, Liev Schreiber, has been cast in the animated Spider-Man as the villain of the movie. There’s currently no word on who he might play, but we think that Schrieber would be a great Kraven the Hunter!

Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are producing Sony’s animated Spider-Man with a script by Lord that will be directed by Bob Persichetti and Peter Ramsey. It will be released on December 21, 2018.
