Casting Call For Sony's Animated SPIDER-MAN Movie Pretty Much Confirms The Lead Character

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!

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

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.
