For decades, Peter Parker has been the face of Spider-Man. Whether it is live-action, comic books, animation, or video games, the loveable Peter Parker is the OG when it comes to Spider-Man. However, there comes a point in time when Miles Morales eventually takes on the role of Spider-Man.

The recent release of Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse has just gone ahead and proven that the craze for Miles Morales has just begun. Surpassing the score of its predecessor by just a little, Across the Spider-Verse rightfully flaunts a 96% Rotten Tomatoes score with the critics going absolutely gaga over the film. Along with the thrilling script and brilliant execution, Shameik Moore, Hailee Steinfeld, and the rest of the team are being heavily praised for their performances.

This makes you wonder whether Miles could one day, surpass the popularity of Peter Parker, the OG Spider-Man himself. A thread on Twitter shines a light on this matter where they put it all into perspective. According to user FleurashDesign, there is a huge chance that in the next 30 years, Miles will be the first name to pop up in people’s minds when they hear Spider-Man, not Peter Parker.

While the idea seems rather odd, Miles’ growing popularity is something to take into consideration. As the thread points out, while Miles has only been Spider-Man for 12 years, he still has a trilogy to his name before one of the biggest superheroes of all time, Flash. The thread also stated that in the future, Spider-Verse will be to the new generation what Tobey Maguire’s films are to us. Not to mention the cultural impact the franchise is having on the world as it diversifies the superhero world.

Check out the complete thread below.

Do you think this could be possible sometime in the future? Can Miles Morales actually take over the following Peter Parker has spent so many years building? Or will Peter always be the first person who comes to mind whenever the superhero is mentioned?

Of course, no opinion on Twitter goes down without a fight or a hugely entertaining debate between two teams who have a difference of opinion. The same goes for the Peter vs. Miles debate, as well. Replying to the thread, many fans came forward to express their opinions. While some believe that this could be a possibility, other fans just don’t see how Miles can beat Peter in terms of popularity.

There is no way to tell what the future holds for Spider-Man at the moment. We just might have to wait a handful of decades to find out the answers to the question!
