It has been a few months since we've heard anything new regarding Sony's animated Spider-Man movie. Now, Backstage has released a casting call for a project titled Cabin Fever, which is actually the code name for the upcoming animated feature. This casting call confirms a past report that Miles Morales will be the lead character in the film.
The role, for a character named Terrence, is described as follows...
A young African-American/Puerto Rican teen from Brooklyn; he is new to this suburban school and now feeling out of place, overwhelmed, pressured with new responsibilities, and dealing with puberty; while trying to fit in he must do his best to stay out of trouble; along the way in developing his identity he’s losing old friends but now making a new one, Pete.
This description is remarkably to similar to the Marvel Comics character of Miles Morales.
Oh, and the character description for Pete definitely indicates this friend isn't Peter Parker.
A young, slighgtly geeky, Asian-American teen; he’s smart, sweet, and encouraging; although very unlike any of the friends Terrence had in his old Brooklyn neighborhood, Pete proves to be a good fit for Terrence making good decisions.
The upcoming Spider-Man animated movie, written and produced by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, swings into theatres on December 21, 2018.
