The introduction of Miles Morales in the vast landscapes of MCU has been a subject of various speculations for a long time. Even though there were some lite rumors that Spider-Man: No Way Home might introduce the character, they all proved to be vague and nothing else. While there are still various theories and rumors going on to bring the character into MCU, a new theory claims that Avengers: Secret Wars will do the needful. According to a recent emerging theory, Secret Wars will do something which will bring Miles Morales and Peter Parker into the same universe.
Is Miles Morales to debut in Secret Wars?
Miles Morales is the Spider-Man of the Ultimate Universe, Earth-1610. He is also bitten by a genetically modified spider and becomes the Spider-Man of this alternate universe after the original spider-man aka Peter Parker’s death. Now according to a new theory by IGN, this new spidey can be finally coming to MCU in Avengers: Secret Wars.
This new theory explains that after the mind-boggling events of Secret Wars, the Marvel Cinematic Universe will go through some shocking changes one of which will be Miles Morales and Peter Parker in the same universe. We know that Secret Wars will follow the storyline from the comics of the same name and will feature a collision of universes. This already sets up a wide range of characters appearing from different universes and the appearance of Morales may also occur similarly.
Now it will be very exciting if Miles Morales appears along with the loads of other characters that are set to appear in the movie.
Miles Morales already exists in MCU?
It is a very notable fact that we already have our Miles Morales in MCU. In Spider-Man: Homecoming we were shown Miles’ uncle Aaron Davis who mentioned his nephew and in the deleted scene he even mentions the name Miles.
These easter-eggs didn’t stop as in No Way Home, between a conversation between Spider-Man and Electro, they mentioned that maybe somewhere there exists a Black Spider-Man in any universe. So it is very interesting how MCU has already planted some seeds of Miles Morales from before only in the MCU.
Morales even exists as the protagonist of Sony’s animated Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse but it doesn’t seem that he can make it to the MCU as the universes are way too different.
Adding more to the speculations, some time back even Tom Holland said that he doesn’t want to play Spider-Man in his 30s and wanted to pass the baton to Miles Morales or somebody else:
“What I basically was trying to say is that if I am 30, still playing Spider-Man, and I haven’t passed on the baton to a Miles Morales or a Spider-Woman or something more diverse, then I will have done something wrong in the sense of the duties I have to the character. Not, like, ‘If I’m playing Spider-Man in my 30s, I’m some washed-up has-been.’”
But with another trilogy starring Holland being reportedly under development, there is doubt if he will really pass the baton. While on the other hand, as this theory suggests, it may be a possibility for Miles Morales to co-exist with Peter Parker post-Secret Wars.
Avengers: Secret Wars is set to release on November 7, 2025
