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.

Very cool. Haven't seen Dope or The Get Down yet, but heard he is great in it. And you can never go wrong with Liev, he definitely has a very evil sounding voice that will work great with a villain.

Oh man.



When Rick Famiwuya was set to direct The Flash, I wanted Shameik to be Wallly West.


Sadly, that didn't happen

@NoMeaning45 - Honestly, I'm confused why Ezra in Justice League isn't Wally. I mean, his personality has more in common with Wally, and that would be a great way to differentiate from the show. Plus, this is a character that many of us grew up associating with as the Flash with the animated universe.

@Origame - we've only seen glimpses of his flash, so we can't fully say whether he's thing or the other until we see the film
