It turns out Peter Parker will be a part of the upcoming animated “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” feature, but not in the way you might think.
Writers and producers Phil Lord and Chris Miller appeared at the Comic-Con Experience 2017 in Sao Paulo, Brazil this past weekend where they revealed new details about the project which is confirmed to have NO connections to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (so no Tom Holland voice cameo).
We also know the film focuses on the Miles Morales (voiced by Shameik Moore) incarnation of the character and it will be an inter-dimensional adventure film so the idea of other Spider-Mans will be included.
The surprise reveal though is that the character of Peter Parker DOES show up in the inter-dimensional adventure film albeit as a middle-aged man. This Parker will serve as a mentor to the youngster and the film will revolve around him ‘passing the baton’.
No word as to whom will voice the role, though one person who has put his hand up is “Hannibal” and “Rogue One” star Mads Mikkelsen who tells IGN this week that if he could play one superhero he “would love to play, that would be an older version of Spider-Man…So if at any time they can live with my funny accent and an older Spider-Man, I’ll do it. Peter Parker is a fun character.”
“Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” opens December next year.
