You know there is a lot of speculation surrounding the upcoming movie Captain America: Civil war. One of the many questions fans like you and I have wondered is who exactly will be playing the new Spider man. Many at first speculated that we could see the webslinger being portrayed by the Ultimate Spider man's Miles Morales. We now know that it is still going to be Peter Parker for the role, but I want to clarify somethings for the reader's out there. Now for those of you who just stick to the movie's and haven't really gotten in to the books it is understandable, and I will elaborate and explain the beginnings of the two (Peter Parker and Miles Morales.)
First of we have the O.G. and my personal Favorite Peter Parker
As we all know Peter was orphaned at a young age and moved to live with his Aunt May and Uncle Ben (No not the rice brand). From a young age it was shown that Peter was very bright and was an Honor Roll student at his local high school. Unfortunately like most kids his quiet studious behavior got him into a few altercations with school bullies. Then one day on a school field trip Peter's life was turned upside down as he was bitten by a radioactive spider thus transforming him into the Amazing Spider man!
Know to shed the light on Mr. Morales!
Miles Morales a kid from Brooklyn was a Normal everyday kid that wanted nothing more than to just be, well normal. One day against his parents will he went to visit his criminal uncle Aaron Davis while there a radioactive spider in Aaron's bag (in there because his uncle robbed oscorp) was bitten turning him into a superhero! Miles though was not thrilled and once discussing it with his best friend he had decided to leave the web slinging to Spiderman. But once the Peter Parker from his world was killed he decided to take up the mantle of Spiderman!
Now I do not want to confuse the reader's out there by saying that Peter is dead. In the Marvel Comic Verse there are quiet a few different earth's for example Earth-616 is Peter's earth and every other superhero that has had a movie thus far that includes the original Avengers, Fantastic Four, X-men, and so much more are apart of the same earth. Miles though comes from Earth-1610 and the worlds are pretty much the same except that Peter dies in battle to the death with the sinister six thus propelling Miles into becoming your friendly neighborhood Spiderman!
