SPIDER-MAN Franchise Producer Amy Pascal Shares Huge Update On Plans For Live-Action Miles Morales

Longtime Spider-Man franchise producer Amy Pascal has shared a big update on future plans for Miles Morales in live-action, and it sounds like he could be heading to the big screen sooner than expected.

There have been rumblings about plans for Miles Morales in live-action for a good couple of years now. The character's popularity continues to rise thanks to his roles in critically acclaimed movies like Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, not to mention Insomniac's Spider-Man video games.

It's now been over three years since Spider-Man: No Way Home was released and, while Spider-Man 4 is in the works, there likely won't be time to get a fifth and sixth movie into theaters before Avengers: Secret Wars reboots the MCU. 

Tom Holland is expected to play a lead role in both upcoming Avengers movies and those could be a perfect place for him to step away from the role of Peter Parker. 

Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures' Spider-Man deal is tenuous at best and we're sure the studio is keen to get back to keeping all those box office profits to itself. Regardless of whether one or both studios are involved, though, it sounds like Miles Morales is on the horizon!

According to franchise producer Amy Pascal, a live-action Miles won't be seen on screen "until we make two more movies." She'd add, "Someday. Someday. We're very happy doing [the animated Spider-Verse movies]."

Interestingly, Spider-Verse producer and writer Chris Miller later took to X to clarify, "When she said 'not until we make two more movies,' she meant Beyond the Spider-Verse and the live-action Tom Holland film."

Considering the fact he's overseeing the likes of Silk and Spider-Man Noir, we'd say he has some inside intel on what's in store for Miles. That may be another TV series or a movie, but it seems the younger Spider-Man will remain off-limits until both of these upcoming projects swing into theaters. 

Talking last year, Holland shared his thoughts on potentially sharing the screen with Miles. "I would be honored to bring Miles Morales into the live action world," the actor enthused. "How we do that, I don't know, but given the opportunity, I would jump at it."

Check out Pascal's comments, and Miller's response, in the X posts below.

God I hope Sony has Marvel take control like Holland's trilogy. Either that or the people involved writing/making/directing/producing the 2 animated Spider-verse movies.

Miles confirmed for Spider-Man 5
Apophis71 - 2/13/2024, 7:16 AM
@FireandBlood - Wouldn't call that confirmed as could only be talking about, and possibly more likely, their own live action Miles film outside of the MCU. That said could be both and SM 5 won't be in the main MCU timeline either and cross paths with Venom in his corner of the multiverse instead.
ObserverIO - 2/13/2024, 7:07 AM
Maybe a live action version of Spider-verse Miles for Avengers 5?
HammerLegFoot - 2/13/2024, 7:08 AM
Anybody here playing Hell Divers 2?
Matchesz - 2/13/2024, 7:13 AM
Spiderman 2 game was popular so now we gonna get Tom Holland and sidekick Miles Morales in the MCU
DocSpock - 2/13/2024, 7:44 AM

This is a bad idea, but for obvious reasons, we know they will do it.

Diluting the Tom Holland Spider-Man character is a very bad move and will be the erosion of the MCU's best character.

Stick Miles Morales in the VillainVerse.

bkmeijer1 - 2/13/2024, 8:33 AM
@marvel72 - wouldn't mind seeing a Miles alongside Garfield's Spider-Man, who I think they should stick in the villainverse first.

But they will eventually introduce Miles in the MCU, so might as well just skip the villainverse. If they want another Spider-Man, they can always introduce Ben Reilly.

Imagine being a straight white male and putting your CV in the mix to direct or write

@SomeoneYouLove - So like applying at any corporation that pushes DEI?

@mountainman - well they were doing it well before dei

trying to rush Miles into live action/MCU before Tom's Peter gets his full time to shine/complete his arc is not the right direction to go in:

bkmeijer1 - 2/13/2024, 8:30 AM
@MotherGooseUPus - I'm kinda on the fence about it. I think the way their handling Spider-Man works really well for the MCU, but I do wanna see him soloing Spider-Man for a bit as well
MotherGooseUPus - 2/13/2024, 8:36 AM
@bkmeijer1 - i wouldnt mind Peter mentoring Miles like in the Spiderverse movies... the problem is our Peter is still a kid and can't mentor anyone....hell... he can't even make smart decision just yet
bkmeijer1 - 2/13/2024, 8:45 AM
@MotherGooseUPus - that's pretty much the reason I wanna see him go solo for a bit first. He's gotta learn to work without a mentor-like figure first, and I doubt he's gonna go without one in Spider-Man 4 because Daredevil is probably gonna be right next to him
HulkisHoly - 2/13/2024, 1:46 PM
@MotherGooseUPus -

Yeah I’d like to see mentor Peter and Miles share the screen but we de need street level Spider-Man 4 first.
Personally, I think Miles fits better in Macguire or Amazing universe since those Spider-Men are older and have more experience.

Im a weird way, Holland is just getting started as Spider-MAN. He was pretty much iron boy in homecoming, IW, EG, and Far From Home.

I think Spider-Man 6 would be the perfect place for Miles to show up and help Peter defeat the sinister 6.
Spike101 - 2/13/2024, 8:27 AM
Say anything to draw attention away from the shit show they have just released 🤦‍♂️
bkmeijer1 - 2/13/2024, 8:29 AM
If they really mean Miles isn't introduced until after Spider-Man 4, I'm good with that. Spider-Man 4 should in my opinion just focus on Spider-Man and Daredevil.

Think 5 would be a good place to introduce Miles though. Have him be bitten in that movie, and then have him suit up alongside Peter Parker to take on a Sinister Six in Spider-Man 6.
Timerider - 2/13/2024, 12:57 PM
@bkmeijer1 - I think he should be introduced in the next movie, and to make it interesting, Peter starts the chain of events that end up inadvertently killing Miles’ father.

The end of 4 and the post credit scene sets up Miles in part 5. In part 5, we have them interacting and training as the ending leads into the Avengers film.
HulkisHoly - 2/13/2024, 1:48 PM
@bkmeijer1 -

Great minds think alike
bkmeijer1 - 2/13/2024, 2:33 PM
@Timerider - I could see that be the case. Maybe Davis works together with Spider-Man on taking on Kingpin, but is killed in the crossfire? A mention of Miles is enough though.

Could also be an interesting dynamic. Maybe they're neighbours, and Miles knows Spider-Man got his dad killed but doesn't know his next door friendly neighbor is Spider-Man
Spoken - 2/13/2024, 9:48 AM
Might as well fast-track it at this point.
JustAWaffle - 2/13/2024, 10:05 AM
I was hoping for that approach. Give Peter a proper finish before sending Miles into the mix.

The next movie should be street level stuff to build back up to something special later.
SheepishOne - 2/13/2024, 11:25 AM
If you're going to introduce Miles with Holland's Spidey, you should save it for Spider-Man 6.

Spidey 4 sounds like a street level film with Kingpin as the villain and Daredevil as a mentor. Hopefully, this also establishes some of the more iconic Spider-Man lore, like Peter's day job at the Bugle.

Spidey 5 follows Peter in college. Maybe introduce Doc Connors and have some dramatic irony with Peter getting close to him to prevent him from becoming the Lizard, only to make him a more monstrous Lizard or something. Instead of having a mentor like Iron Man, Strange, or Daredevil...give him a peer. Maybe Johnny Storm? And introduce the symbiote suit. Show the change in dynamic with Peter and Johnny before and after the suit (plus, the suit being weak against fire would make for a good pairing with Johnny).

Then in Spidey 6, you either do a Venom and Carnage thing (MCU versions), or an MCU Sinister Six. And introduce FEAST and Miles, but don't give Miles Spidey powers until either the end of the film or in the post-credits.

Then you're all set for a live action Miles Spidey movie.
Order66 - 2/13/2024, 11:55 AM
Spider-Man 4 - Daredevil, Echo, Kingpin, Maggia, Hammerhead and Tombstone. Miles is his neighbor. Post credit scene the symbiote attaches itself to Peter.

Avengers 5 and Secret Wars - Black suit Spider-Man helps the Avengers.

Spider-Man 5 - Symbiote comes off Peter and it grows into Venom. We finally get Spider-Man vs Venom. Miles gets his powers. Post credit scene Miles reveals to Peter he has powers.

Spider-Man 6 - Peter trains Miles and they both fight Alistair Smythe and his Sinister Six (Scorpion, Rhino, Chameleon, Hydro Man, Shocker, Vulture). Peter loses his powers and Miles takes over as the new Spider-Man in the MCU.

Based on Madame Web's reviews, Sony should not be allowed to make anything ever related to Spider-Man again.
