A new casting call for the upcoming Sony Animated Pictures Spider-Man movie has emerged. With this casting call, it seems that we may finally know who will be starring in the film. The casting call lists the project as Cabin Fever, with the studio looking to cast two characters, Terrence and Pete. These seem to be code names for the Spider-Man film.
For Terrence, they are looking for a male between the ages of 13 to 15. Terrence is described as “a young African-American/Puerto Rican teen from Brooklyn; he is new to this suburban school and now feeling out of place, overwhelmed, pressured with new responsibilities, and dealing with puberty; while trying to fit in he must do his best to stay out of trouble; along the way in developing his identity he’s losing old friends but now making a new one, Pete.” Pete is described as “a young, slightly geeky, Asian-American teen; he’s smart, sweet, and encouraging; although very unlike any of the friends Terrence had in his old Brooklyn neighborhood, Pete proves to be a good fit for Terrence making good decisions.” Both sound pretty familiar right?
From these descriptions, it definitely seems like this film will be starring the Ultimate Spider-Man, Miles Morales, and his best friend Ganke Lee. This logically makes sense, as Sony would want to have a different Spider-Man other than Peter Parker featured in order to not confuse the casual audiences, or conflict with the new Spider-Man live action films.
