Is Miles Morales Confirmed as the New Animated Spider-Man?


It's already been taken down, but Backstage.com had a casting call for an upcoming Sony Animations project entitled "Cabin Fever" which ComicBookMovie.com speculates is the cover for the new animated "Spider-Man" movie. One of the characters they're looking to cast is "Terrence" and they're looking for a male between 13 to 15 who is described as "a young African-American / Puerta Rican teen from Brooklyn" who is "pressured with new responsibilities" and "must do his best to stay out of trouble." The rest of the description makes the character sound an awful lot like it could be Miles Morales. I don't know about you, but I think it would be a smart move to go a different route with the animated "Spider-Man" film, giving Peter Parker a rest and adding some spice to the Marvel Universe.
