Holy shit. The Lord and Miller animated Spider-Man movie is going to star my Spider-Man, Miles Morales. Just when I thought I couldn’t get any more hype for a Lord and Miller project! Here we are.
Oh shit! Miles Morales! Spider-Man. Maybe not in the movies, but the web slinger is headlining a Spider-Title in the comics this Fall.
This is what we call one of them mitigated victories. Prior to the Emma Stone/Marc Webb/Andrew Garfield-powered Spider-Man reboot, Donald Glover lobbied (or didn’t really lobby depending on your interpretation) for the role of Peter Parker. People like me thought it would be dope. Other people short-circuited because gosh dang it that Glover folk’s skin pigment dun match Parker’s!
Glover didn’t get to play Parker, obviously. And boo! But now he’s sort of gotten the role of Spider-Man.
Miles Morales – my one and true Spider-Man – is somehow joining the All-New X-Men. Which answers the question, “What could finally get Caff-Pow to read All-New X-Men?” In truth, our own Johnny Hotsauce has finally shoved me onto the precipice of reading it anyways. But now, I’m diving off the ledge! I’m not particularly certain of the mechanics that’ll bring Morales to the proper Marvel Universe. I also don’t particularly care.
Crisis on Infinite Spider-Verse! In October, Marvel along with Dan Slott with Olivier Coipel will be dropping the thickest batch of Spider-Load you can imagine. All sorts of fucking Spider-Guys fighting stuff! In fact — all the goddamn Spider-Folk. So while I generally wouldn’t check out a Spidey event, the return of Parker combined with Coipel handling the artwork has me intrigued.
Fuck yeah! If the Ultimate universe lives, I’m glad this is the form its taking. Everyone and their dumb brother seems ruined by Galactus, leaving Miles Morales to pretty much run the fucking show. I love it. I love it!
Miles Morales was really neat because he was a half-Hispanic, half-African American who was the Spider-Man of the UMU. Well, now he’s coming to the regular Marvel U. And he’ll be just one Spider-Person among a deluge of clones, dumb asses, Doc Ock, and others. This has me significantly bummed.
Marvel wants you to know the villain that’ll have Miles Morales and Peter Parker joining together for one vicious Spider team. Or rather as I see it: the villain that Morales is going to have to save Parker’s dumb ass from. Mysterio! Boom!
Well, it’s happening. The Ultimate and 616 universes are somehow interacting, an event that Joe Quesada once said would only happen when Marvel was out of ideas. Which you know, makes it seem like perfect sense that its happening now.
Details and artwork after the jump.
Marvel’s announced uh, something, in the vein of Spider-Men #1 arriving this June. At least I was all “If those fucks get rid of Miles Morales I will literally cut them”, but then I noticed something…it isn’t the Ultimate universe.
Hit the jump for the promo and speculation.
