Sony concluded its E3 press conference with more action packed gameplay from Insomniac’s Spider-Man, but that's not when Miles was unveiled. It was only after Sony finished wrapping things up that a bonus cutscene was reeled to the masses.
Insomniac and Marvel ended their demo by abruptly cutting away from Peter Parker confronting Martin Li, back down to a gathering of idle New Yorkers watching from street view level. One of the onlookers, a teenager, is among the crowd and if you listen carefully you can hear another teen refer to him as Miles.
This is an electrifying moment for Spider-Man fans and blerds alike. Morales has featured in a number of video games such as Marvel Super Hero Squad Online, Spider-Man: Unlimited, Marvel Future Fight and a couple others, but the trailer suggests that Morales's role could be prominent in Spider-Man.
According to Insomniac's Community Director James Stevenson, this teaser footage was suppose to be a homage to the after-credits scenes that have graced every Marvel Studios film up to now.
Even with Miles' brief cameo appearance, we still have no idea what kind of role he'll play in this game. Whether or not Morales will be given a big role is still in question, but Insomniac has confirmed that Spider-Man would focus on "an experienced Peter Parker who’s more masterful at fighting big crime."
Is it a possibility that Peter will have a mentor-like relationship with Miles like he does in the comics? As of now it's hard to know for sure, especially with only snippets of gameplay and information.
Though entirely based on his look here, Morales doesn't seem to have superpowers just yet, despite looking somewhat older than his comic book debut appearance.
So for now, it appears that Miles is another reason for Spider-Man fans everywhere to get excited about what Marvel and Insomniac Games have planned for Spider-Man PS4. Spider-Man will be released exclusively for the PlayStation 4 in 2018.
