Over the last few days there have been rumors flying around that the Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe wouldn’t be white. For fans of Mile Morales, this could mean that the Ultimate Spider-Man could be headed to the big screen and with Miles becoming part of the 616 universe after Secret Wars…that would be fine by me.
Now The Wrap’s Jeff Snyder, who started all of these rumors, has dropped a tweet that could explain how this would work:
This actually echoes Miles’ origin in the comics. He didn’t pick up the mantle of Spider-Man until after Peter Parker was killed in the Ultimate Universe, and as the MCU does like to pull elements from that soon-defunct comic universe it fits with how they do things at Marvel Studios.
