List Rules Upvote your favorite casting choices for a Miles Morales: The Ultimate Spider-Man movie!

With The Amazing Spider-Man 2 not being the be all end all Marvel Studios film success Sony needed it to be, there have been talks of restarting the film franchise‚Ķ again. But this time with an all new Spider-Man altogether. So who should follow in Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield's footsteps as a fellow Spidey? Why not do a Miles Morales Ultimate Spider-Man movie? It opens up a whole world of great actors who could join the Spider-Verse in upcoming movies. But who should play Miles in a Miles Morales Spider-Man adaptation? Help us decide!

When The Amazing Spider-Man reboot began, Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy wasn't even five years old. In fact, a fourth Raimi Spider-Man film was actively into pre-production, with Anne Hathaway as Black Cat, when Sony decided to reboot the Spider-Man film franchise instead of carrying on. So, another take on the character would not be out of the question.

In the pages of Marvel Comics, the Ultimate Spider-Man comic book follows a completely new storyline: one where Peter Parker, the Spider-Man we know and love has tragically passed away while saving the city. A new kid, Miles Morales (Donald Glover had a hand in his creation), also bitten by a genetically altered spider from the same facility, getting his very own spider powers, has taken up the Spider-Man mantle. Many of the supporting cast members like Mary Jane, Aunt May, Gwen Stacy, and J. Jonah Jameson are still alive and well, so it would be a great route to take the franchise in its own new way. That may even be the best way to get a Spider-Man, any Spider-Man, involved in the Civil War film that's coming (the ultimate dream).

Only time will tell, but first, let's cast a Miles Morales movie including his supporting cast! Vote up all the actors you think would be perfect for a role in an Ultimate Spider-Man film!

As: Ganke 

This kid (one of the stars of Modern Family) is Ganke! There's no other choice. Cast him!
Would this be a great fit?

As: Gwen Stacy 

Another small, but integral part in Miles's journey to become Spider-Man is played by Gwen Stacy. You would need someone gorgeous, smart, and, most of all, beyond strong willed and spunky. The Wolf of Wall Street star (who was cast in the role of Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad) is all those things, and also surprisingly the right age for the role (she was born in 1990).
