Tom Holland’s MCU Spider-Man flicks have already created the stage for Miles Morales to make his debut, with Spider-Man: No Way Home on the way.
No Way Home will be released in theatres on December 17th, and it will see Tom Holland’s Spider-Man confronting villains from all over the Multiverse after Doctor Strange’s (Benedict Cumberbatch) failed spell to erase Peter’s identity from the collective memory of the planet.
Doc Ock (Alfred Molina) and Green Goblin (Willem Dafoe) are among the villains expected to feature in No Way Home, as with numerous others such as Electro (Jamie Foxx), all of whom appear in previous Spider-Man films before the MCU.
No Way Home, on the other hand, maybe Holland’s Spidey farewell, with Holland himself nominating another well-known web-head to succeed him.

“It might be time for me to go on,” Holland said in a GQ interview, adding, “Perhaps what’s best for Spider-Man is that they do a Miles Morales picture.” While it may appear that the MCU would need to create a brand-new origin story and entry point for Miles, this isn’t the case.
In reality, Holland’s Spider-Man appearances have already done a lot of the heavy lifting in terms of easing Miles into the MCU.
Aaron Davis, played by Donald Glover, had an appearance in Spider-Man: Homecoming in 2017. Davis is the uncle of Miles Morales, and he is one of several persons who have assumed the name of Prowler. While this wouldn’t be considered official MCU canon, a deleted scene from Homecoming shows Davis addressing Miles in a phone call, and while this wouldn’t be considered official MCU canon, it’s another apparent opening for Miles.
While Miles was not seen operating as Spider-Man after Peter returned in Far From Home, he may have been a bit closer to Peter’s homecoming, leaving him with less time to create his own Spider-Man identity. Before No Way Home, the public may not have had enough time to really appreciate Miles’ Spider-Man.
