Rapper/actor Ice Cube is reportedly being eyed for the role of Jefferson Davis, Miles Morales’ father in the upcoming animated “Spider-Man” movie at Sony Pictures.
The rumor was mentioned during the latest episode of Meet The Movie Press by co-host Jeff Sneider, but he didn’t offer any further information.
In the comics, Davis is a former NYPD officer with a shady past involving his criminal brother Aaron. This leads to a complicated relationship with his son who will be this film’s version of Spider-Man.
Written by Phil Lord and executive produced by Lord and Chris Miller, the animated film is due to open December 21st 2018.
