SPIDER-MAN Animated Movie Finds Its Miles Morales In Shameik Moore; Liev Schrieber Will Voice The Villain

Sony's upcoming animated Spider-Man movie has found its Miles Morales in the form of Dope star Shameik Moore. Plus, former Sabertooth actor Liev Schreiber will voice the mysterious baddie...

THR reports that Sony Pictures has settled on an actor to voice the web-swinging hero of their upcoming animated Spider-Man movie.

Shameik Moore, who made his name starring in indie flick Dope and Netflix's The Get Down, will play Miles Morales in the film, while Liev Schrieber (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Ray Donovan) will provide the voice of the villain - though his character's identity is being kept under wraps for the time being.

Bob Persichetti is set to helm the picture, with Peter Ramsey (Rise of the Guardians) on board to co-direct. It's been confirmed that this will be a standalone project, and won't be set in the same continuity as the main MCU films.

Written by Phil Lord and executive produced by Lord and Chris Miller, the animated Spider-Man movie is due to open December 21, 2018.
