Shameik Moore, who plays Miles Morales, and Jake Johnson, who plays Peter Parker, together filmed an acceptance speech when they received their Certified Fresh trophies, thanking God, the entire Spider-Man team and, of course, Spidey’s co-creator Stan Lee, who died just weeks ago.
Take a look below:
Moore and Johnson have previously discussed the relationship and differences between their two Spider-Men.
“I would introduce Miles as the Brooklyn Spider-Man,” Moore said. “I would say there’s a camaraderie between Peter and Miles in this movie that’s a little different. He finds himself and he’s learning how to be Spider-Man. I mean every Spider-Man has to learn how to be Spider-Man, but he’s lucky. He has Peter, but it's a little different than we expected. Miles is a special kid. ‘With great power comes great responsibility’ means something a little different with Miles. It’s the same phrase, but this is really forced upon him.”
“I think Peter’s a little bit older,” Johnson said. “I think his back hurts a little bit more, and I don’t think he’s positive he wants to be Spider-Man anymore. And then he meets a young guy who’s got a new spin on Spider-Man and might need his help, but he’s not a teacher...He’s just not sure he wants to do any of this. He doesn’t know if he wants to be Spider-Man or teach someone how to do all these tricks.”
“They both see something special in the other that they don’t necessarily have,” Johnson explains. “So that there's something about each of them that they’re both Spider-Man but there’s a uniqueness to Peter and a uniqueness to Miles that the other one likes so that they don’t necessarily want to need each other, but then, in the end, they kind of need each other.”
Here's the official synopsis for the film:
"Bitten by a radioactive spider, teenager Miles Morales suddenly develops mysterious powers that transform him into Spider-Man. He must now use his newfound skills to battle the Kingpin, a hulking madman who can open portals to other dimensions."
