While Sony and Marvel left some fans disappointed when they chose to stick with Peter Parker for the MCU version of the wall-crawler, an alleged casting call has surfaced online which suggests that Miles Morales will be making his big screen debut at Sony after all, albeit as part of the animated Spider-Man movie.
Backstage has posting a casting call for ‘Cabin Fever’, an upcoming Sony animation project that “chronicles the adventures of two unlikely friends, Terrence and Pete” and is thought to be a codename for the animated Spidey feature.
The casting call for the lead, the 13-15 year-old ‘Terrence’, reads: “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.”
‘Pete’ is also described as a 13-16 year-old male, and “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.”
The animated Spider-Man movie is set for release on December 21st, 2018, with Bob Persichetti set to direct and Phil Lord and Chris Miller writing and producing.
