Hot on the heels of Spider-man 2’s strong opening in theaters amidst mixed reviews comes Andrew Garfield’s sit done with Comic Book resources. The actor says a great many things but none nearly as mind blowing as the possibility that future sequels of the Amazing Spider-man movie franchise could introduce Miles Morales:
I have given that thought. I think one of the amazing things about Spider-Man is that you don’t see skin color when he’s in the suit. You don’t see any religious beliefs. You don’t see any denominations. … Miles Morales was a huge moment in this character’s comic book life. And I do believe that we can do that. It’s something I’m really interested in figuring out; an eloquent way of coexisting, or passing on the torch.”
Miles Morales you may recall was introduced as the Ultimate Comics Spider-man after Peter Parker was killed by the Green Goblin. Miles has enjoyed high popularity here on WOBH. He’s landed #1 on our Top 30 superheroes-Traffic Edition back in May 2013 and was #15 on the Top 30 Superheroes-Fan Edition. Miles is also set to star in his own eponymous title set to launch on May 7, 2014. Having Miles on film would be a triumph for black superheroes who have languished in “Sidekick heaven” thanks to Falcon played by Anthony Mackie and War Machine played by Don Cheadle. It’s been ages since Blade played by Wesley Snipes dominated the box office or a Black Superhero had the leading role in a superhero movie. Black Panther has been in movie limbo since forever so maybe Miles will be the first black superhero since Blade to star in his own movie.
What do you think of Miles Morales making his big debut sooner rather than later?
