Casting Call For Sony's Animated SPIDER-MAN Movie Pretty Much Confirms The Lead Character
It's been a while since we've heard anything about Sony's animated Spider-Man movie, but it's looking like reports of it revolving around Miles Morales were correct. Backstage has a casting call up for an upcoming Sony Animations project codenamed, "Cabin Fever." A synopsis says only that it "chronicles the adventures of two unlikely friends, Terrence and Pete," but it's thought this is actually Spider-Man.
An apparent casting call for the animated Spider-Man movie has surfaced, and it reveals the identity of the movie's lead. As expected, it won't be Peter Parker, but another young hero instead!
For Terrence, the studio is looking for a male between 13 - 15 who is described as "a young African-American/Puerto Rican teen from Brooklyn; he is new to this suburban school and now feeling out of place, overwhelmed, pressured with new responsibilities, and dealing with puberty; while trying to fit in he must do his best to stay out of trouble; along the way in developing his identity he's losing old friends but now making a new one, Pete." That definitely sounds an awful lot like Miles Morales!
Before you go assuming that "Pete" is Peter Parker, a description for that character (aged 13 - 16) points to that not being the case. Instead, he's going to be "a young, slighgtly geeky, Asian-American teen; he's smart, sweet, and encouraging; although very unlike any of the friends Terrence had in his old Brooklyn neighborhood, Pete proves to be a good fit for Terrence making good decisions."
With any luck, we'll get some more details on this Spider-Man movie next year. It looks like Sony are going to cast real teenagers anyway, but chances are some bigger name stars will end up joining them.
