On paper, Jharrel Jerome has all the right intangibles to portray Miles Morales in the MCU/Sony Spider-Man Universe, and if Miles is set to arrive sooner rather than later, you figure Kevin Feige and co. should certainly look Jerome's way. 

Appearing on the red carpet at the Critic's Choice Awards recently, Jerome remarked that Miles is actually his dream role.

We know that Miles exists in the MCU thanks to Donald Glover's Aaron Davis mentioning his "nephew" in Spider-Man: Homecoming, so what are the chances the character actually shows up in Tom Holland's third Spidey film? With Peter Park framed for murder, perhaps Doctor Strange could send him to another reality, where that universe's Peter Parker has already died and Miles is operating as his replacement?

There are several ways the character could be introduced, and after the success of Into The Spider-Verse, it wouldn't be at all surprising if it's something that has been discussed.

Do you think Jerome would make a good Miles Morales? Let us know in the comments section.

I think Miles Morales will always stay a reference in the MCU. And the Sony side however, I can see Jerome in the role

The snap somehow made the age gap between him and Donald Glover believable so....

@OmegaDaGrodd - I didn't even think of that! That could work!

I've zero interest in a live action Miles Morales Spider-Man.

@Thing94 - It would be pretty cool but too early for that right now.

Dude can act and I’d like to see this. We still seem years way though sadly.
WakandanQueen - 1/14/2020, 5:08 AM
Brilliant actor but Shameik Moore is right there and he's a great fit!
KidfromBrooklyn - 1/14/2020, 5:14 AM
God no. We need someone younger-looking and more charming

Ashton Sanders is also a good option to play Miles.

Although this would require a deal of some kind - that would likely never happen:

In the third or fourth Spider-Man MCU film - let's do a redo of the black suit.
Perhaps at the end of Venom 2 - Brock and the symbiote split up for some kind of reason... eventually meeting Spider-Man and bonding with him.

This MCU Spider-Man movie might be able to explore Spider-Man having the symbiote for a chunk of time (maybe half the movie) and then rejecting it... forcing it to find Brock again, who is also wronged by Peter somehow.

Thus building the reasoning for the symbiote to begin hating Spider-Man and latching back onto Eddie Brock due to that mutual hatred.

... just kinda spit balling here.

Maybe the symbiote doesn't act as crazy because it's not trying to alarm Spidey about it's true nature - because it's so attracted to his power. But eventually it slips and says/does some weird things that Peter begins to become nervous about and eventually rejects it.

I dunno

Too old.

@Makiveli21 - I agree and we don't need to rush a live action Miles, because Tom has said he is willing to do 5-6 Spidey films, let the dude age up a bit so he can mentor the next Spidey.

@Makiveli21 -5 year "Snap" helps that a lot...
MisterTriffid - 1/14/2020, 7:42 AM
He's a bit old isn't he?

Why not just use his voice actor from Spiderverse? Boom perfection
Dojen - 1/14/2020, 9:55 AM
Too old. Miles is a KID, and there are any number of very talented kids who could play him.

He was my fan cast right after his Emmy win. I'm still for it!
