Kevin Feige Confirms Miles Morales Exists In The MCU

During a recent interview with, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige and Spider-Man: Homecoming director Jon Watts discussed the upcoming film, where Feige revealed that Miles Morales is part of the MCU. In the film, Donald Glover plays Aaron Davis, who is Miles’ uncle in the comics. Aaron mentions his “nephew” in the film but the name “Miles” is never said. Here are some highlights from that interview:

Watts on getting Donald Glover for the film: “I mean, I always wanted Donald [Glover] to be in this movie. That was one of my first ideas, just because I knew… I remember all the excitement surrounding him being Spider-Man, you know? And I was like, ‘If he’s going to be in this movie, who could he be?’ So, we’re not saying anything specifically, but Aaron Davis having a nephew in New York City… I wouldn’t say it’s a definite hint, but I think it definitely opens that door.”

Feige on the existance of Miles Morales: “He does have a nephew. He has a nephew.”

Holland on if Miles could get introduced to the MCU: “That would be something that I would be very up for doing, it’s something that I would really, really hope to happen. I think Miles Morales is a great character, I think it would be fantastic to have an actor of color playing a superhero on screen and I just think it’s going to be something very cool and something very exciting for this universe.”
