It’s been specualted and rumored for some time, but now we have official word that Miles Morales, the very popular, racially diverse Spider-Man will be the headlining character in Sony’s animated movie.
But who will voice him? THR is reporting now that Shameik Moore (Netflix’s The Get Down) has landed that important task, and Liev Schrieber will be voicing the film’s villain, who has yet to be revealed.
The project comes, of course, by the writing/producing team of Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the guys who did the Lego Movie and have become a Hollywood hot commodity. Directing duties are being handled by Bob Persichetti (The Little Prince) and Peter Ramsey (Rise of the Guardians).
