Miles Morales Could Join the Spider-Verse Through Spider-Man 4
Fans first saw Miles Morales’ Spider-Man in action in the 2018 Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. Followed by the film, fans have been expecting to see the live-action version of his Spider-Man. Although his appearance has been teased several times in the MCU, fans never saw him on-screen.
The 2017 Spider-Man: Homecoming includes a sequence where Spider-Man comes across Aaron Davis. Davis says that he does not want any weapons to hit the neighborhood as his nephew lives there. Kevin Feige revealed in an interview that the line referred to Miles Morales, confirming his presence in the MCU.
According to recent rumors, fans will finally see Morales on screen side by side with Peter Parker. The rumors claim that the studio has decided to star Miles Morales as a roommate for Peter Parker and this could happen in the next Spider-Man movie.
Some fan theories even suggest that Miles Morales will have Spider-Man powers and Parker may turn out to be his mentor as Tony Stark did for him.

Way too soon for Miles in the MCU I think. His relationship with Peter being his mentor is kinda huge for them, and Peter literally JUST became his own hero. Not sure I like twisting that.

I don’t think Mike’s will be the same age as Peter Parker he will most likely be played by someone a little younger

How Would Marvel Introduce Miles Morales?
As the rumors started about Miles Morales being Peter Parker’s roommate in Spider-Man 4, there have been multiple questions regarding this. So far, the character had not appeared on screen and with previous mentions, Miles Morales sounded way too young to be Parker’s roommate in the next film.
However, fans have some theories regarding how he would manage to befriend Spider-Man. Fans believe that he would be living in the same building in which Tom Holland’s Spider-Man moved in No Way Home.
Some fans even suggested that the studio is planning to blame the blip for the age issue between Peter Parker and Miles Morales. The theory claims that Morales did not get blipped after Thanos’ snap and this would make him of similar age to Parker. They might even go to the same college in the upcoming film.
Producer Amy Pascal has also said that Miles Morales will be introduced to live-action films once the story creates an opening for him. With the studio planning to release Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, there could be a possibility that Miles Morales’ adventures in the sequel lead him to Earth 616.
Spider-Man 4 is rumored to release on July 12, 2024.
