With the future of Spider-Man uncertain following the breakdown between Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios, actor Tom Holland still has one thing on his wishlist: a team-up with Miles Morales.
In a new video, Holland sits down with GQ to answer fan questions across social media. One fan on YouTube asked if Peter Parker would have to die to introduce Miles Morales or if the two characters could co-exist in the same universe. When answering the question, Holland stated, “Well I hope that doesn’t happen because I would love to share the screen with Miles, I think that’d be really cool. Um, and I don’t want to die, because I really love playing Peter Parker, so that would kind of be a bit of a bummer.” Holland shared a similar reaction to the idea of Miles Morales being introduced back when Spider-Man: Homecoming was released in 2017.
Miles Morales made his debut in 2011’s Ultimate Comics Fallout #4, by Brian Michael Bendis and Sara Pichelli, soon taking over the role of the famous web-slinger following the death of Peter Parker. However, recent pieces of Spidey media have indicated that the two can live side by side; both Parker and Morales have appeared in the Ultimate Spider-Man animated series, the recently-released Marvel’s Spider-Man video game and the Oscar-winning film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, not to mention the comics.
With Holland’s enthusiasm for introducing the character, it seems like including Miles Morales in future Spider-Man movies could be a real possibility at some point.
