Miles Morales was first introduced on the big screen back in 2018’s Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse. Since then the rise in popularity of the character has not slowed down. Miles even got his own Playstation game in 2020 with Marvel’s Spider-man: Miles Morales. The meteoric rise of the character has meant that it’s only a matter of time before Marvel adapt the first black Spider-man into live-action.

Fast forward to the present day and Jaden Smith’s A-list father, Will Smith, has hinted that the rumour could be true.

Miles Morales certainly fits the description that Will Smith has outlined in his comments. Make history? Check. The saga of a movie that many already know and ask for? Check.
