Insomniac Games’ “Ultimate” choice puts Miles Morales at the center of the Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 sequels: the protagonist is no longer Peter
And to think that it all began with Donald Glover’s audition for the role of Peter Parker in the Big Screen duology Amazing: The Birth of Miles Morales it started from there, and years later the good guys from Insomniac Games they intend to do it hero of the video game series after Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. In other words, in the sequels good old Pete will sit in the back seat, leaving the Afro-Latin Spidey the limelight. He told it Brittney Moms of Insomniac in a recent interview, defining the passing of the baton as “very natural”. “To me, it shows a lot of evolution for Miles; At the beginning of the game, he doesn’t know what to do with his life, and in the end he takes it upon himself to both save the city and help Pete get back on his feet when Pete couldn’t do it on his own.”
