In the process of saying things that we already knew would happen (Tom Hardy is going to make another Venom movie*; Sony wouldn’t mind a Venom / Spider-Man crossover, if only they can figure out how to do it), producer Amy Pascal said this:
Fans of Miles Morales will also be happy to learn that the character’s inclusion in this animated universe does not necessarily mean we can’t ever get a live-action version of him, too. “No, I don’t think you should exclude [Miles from a live-action movie],” Pascal said. “I think you should assume there is nothing to exclude.”
(Via Coming Soon.) No quarrel with that, but: which actor do you get for the role? Shameik Moore (Miles in the movie) is the better-known voice; Nadji Jeter (Miles in the PS4 game) looks more like a teenager. And I don’t know whether it’d be jarring if they went for somebody else for the live-action.
I know, it’s currently academic, but it’s an interesting question, hey? And I am happily pleased to realize that I can maybe expect entertaining Spider-Man movies from Sony again. It’s refreshing, really.
*Venom brought in an absolutely unexpected 855 million on a 100 million dollar production budget. They’re going to bring back Tom Hardy for the sequel, even if his agent is making the universal sign for “more money, please.”
