With the latest Spider-Man film just a mere two weeks away and with the recent news that star Tom Holland would love to have his character, Peter Parker, to mentor Miles Morales at some point in the Spidey franchise, it’s been confirmed that Morales is indeed part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Marvel Studios President, Kevin Feige, recently confirmed in an interview with Screen Crush that Morales is part of the MCU.
**Spoiler Warning Below**
For those who don’t already know, Donald Glover is playing a character named Aaron Davis (the same character that Mahershala Ali will be voicing in the upcoming animated Spider-Man film), who just happens to be the uncle of Miles Morales.
When questioned about the intent behind having Glover playing the role of Davis and if the “nephew” he refers to in the movie was Miles, Feige said, ‘yes’ and referred to “Anything that’s happened in the books.”
Feige also said, “In the meantime, I think Miles is a big part of the animated movie that Sony’s making. But where we go… we definitely want you to go ‘[Miles] is there. He’s there somewhere.”
Morales made his first appearance for Marvel Comics back in August 2011 and has been a fan favorite ever since.

Spider-Man: Homecoming is in theaters on July 7 and Sony’s animated Spider-Man film which will feature Miles Morales as the title character is expected to hit theaters December 21, 2018.
