Re: Race & Spider-Man: Sony Confirms a Glass Ceiling for Miles Morales
I can *almost* see the logic in this in a, "the unfamiliar public only knows Peter Parker as Spider-man" sort of way. But I don't see why that need completely rule Miles Morales out. They could introduce him as a secondary character/side-kick in a movie, have Peter die or retire in the same movie (or next one) and let Miles then carry the torch.
Introduce him slowly enough and over the course of maybe a couple of movies and you could get the audience familiar with the character.
For me, and for many of us, the future is now in the past.
