Over the last couple of weeks, we’ve heard some pretty interesting things come to light about Spider-Man 3 prior to the start of filming. We learned that Jamie Foxx would return as Electro, and Benedict Cumberbatch will be appearing as Doctor Strange. There are also a lot of other crazy rumors flying around out there, but today is one that is really cool if it turns out to be true.
MCU Cosmic is reporting the possibility that Sony and Marvel Studios have already found their live-action Miles Morales. No word as to who it could be, or even if it’s for Spider-Man 3, but that would seem to make the most sense for his debut.
The timing also seems perfect. Miles has already had a hugely successful animated film, but now he’s the star of Sony’s flagship PlayStation 5 launch title in Spider-Man: Miles Morales. The time is right for Miles to make his live-action debut, and with him being referenced in Homecoming, showing up in the third movie does make a lot of sense.
