Spider-Man No Way Home: Will Miles Morales Be Peter Parker (Tom Holland) Successor?

This week, Spider-Man fans were able to check out the latest trailer for No Way Home with Tom Holland. The Multiverse promises to play a big role in this new adaptation made by Jon Watts. Indeed, several villains will land in the long awaited blockbuster. Many followers of the superhero are hoping that the latter will benefit from the help of other iterations of the Spider-Man. Nevertheless, Andrew Garfield as well as Tom Holland have already denied on several occasions, the reunion of the three Spider-Man in the film.

If it will be necessary to wait for the release of the feature film on December 15, 2021 to know if the three versions of Spider-Man will be reunited, No Way Home could in any case film the arrival of Miles Morales. The latter could indeed lend a hand to the superhero, especially since the existence of the character discovered in the animated film Spider-Man : New Generation has also been made canon in the MCU and the Sonyverse thanks to the presence of her uncle, Aaron Davis (Donald Glover) or her mother, who is rumored to be played by Paula Newsome.

To this can be added the recent words of Tom Holland. In an interview with GQ, the British actor explained that, despite producer Amy Pascal’s attempts to persuade him, he doesn’t want to make Spider-Man movies forever. “Maybe it’s time for me to move on. Maybe what’s best about Spider-Man is that they make a movie about Miles Morales. I also have to take Peter Parker into account because he is an important part of my life. But I tell myself if I’m still playing Spider-Man at 30, something’s wrong. ” As you will have understood, the next generation is already found for Tom Holland! The two characters share many similarities both with regard to the evolution of their maturity, their candor but also with regard to their sense of justice and duty.

Offering a live-action film to Miles Morales would make sense for Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures, while ensuring continuity with the universe. Maybe the outcome of Spider-Man : No Way Home could also tease the future arrival of the young boy in the costume. This would offer a new take on the superhero while capitalizing on the success of the Oscar-winning animated film in 2019. It remains to be seen who of the MCU’s Miles Morales – if it were to be introduced – or the one that appeared in Spider-Man : New Generation will be the next Spider-Man. Hopefully the output of No Way Home in less than a month offers us an answer!
