Atlanta ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Background Extra is Going Viral

Project Casting

Spider-Man: Homecoming filmed in Atlanta, Georgia and the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War movie is now filming in the ATL. Earlier this week, a photo from the latest Spider-Man movie has gone viral. In the photo, a background actor who was featured in a school bus scene with Tom Holland has many people questioning whether this extra is Miles Morales, who is a fictional superhero who appears in comic books published by Marvel Comics, as one of the characters who goes by the identity of Spider-Man.

While this is only speculation, many Marvel fans took to social media to comment on the viral photo. “Yay I can’t wait I like him so much better than the new kid playing Spiderman the black Spidey kid is awesome in the comic,” one Facebook user wrote.

While other Marvel fans called out the photo as only a rumor and a hoax. “Marvel would not be foolish to include that shot in the trailer if Miles will really be in the MCU. If it is then they will show him with big neon signs pointing at him saying “This is Miles.,” one user wrote.
