Ever since Spider-Man 3 announced that villains from previous Spider-Man franchises would be appearing in the latest installment, the internet has run rampant with rumors over who else might be appearing in Spider-Man 3. Many have theorized we could see the return of Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield, and even possibly Kristen Dunst and Emma Stone. But a new set photo has opened up a new rumor that Miles Morales might be soon appearing in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Spider-Man 3 is currently filming in Atlanta, where one fan caught the above photo of a truck covered in graffiti. The truck is labeled with a F.E.A.S.T. logo, which stands for Food, Emergency, Aid, Shelter and Training. In Spider-Man: Far From Home, we saw Aunt May had an interest in helping the less fortunate, and in Marvel’s Spider-Man video game, May works for F.E.A.S.T., which is run by Martin Li/Spider-Man villain, Mister Negative. In the recent Spider-Man: Miles Morales video game, F.E.A.S.T. is also featured heavily, leaving many to think that this could mean the introduction of Miles into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe did hint at Miles Morales previously in 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming. Peter Parker meets Aaron Davis – played by Donald Glover – who mentions his nephew. For those who have seen Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Davis is Miles’ nephew, while Davis is also the thief known as the Prowler. Slyly mentioning Miles Morales in Spider-Man: Homecoming was likely more than just a cute nod, but it’s still unclear if we will see our first glimpse of Miles Morales in Spider-Man 3.

While F.E.A.S.T. does factor into the Miles Morales video game, F.E.A.S.T. isn’t exactly tied directly to Miles. It’s entirely possible the F.E.A.S.T. truck is a reference to the comics and video game, or it could simply be a truck for the place where Aunt May works in the third film. But considering Miles Morales does like to experiment with graffiti, the tagged bottom half of that truck could be referencing Miles’ existence. Whether or not that means we will see Miles or the Prowler – or even Mister Negative – in Spiderman 3 is yet to be seen.

But considering the talk about Spider-Man 3 heavily revolving around multiverses, it does seem like Marvel is taking a cue from the critical and commercial success of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. It looks as though Marvel wants to try and connect the various forms of Spider-Man we already know from decades of films and throw them into one big Marvel Cinematic Universe melting pot. Considering how beloved Miles Morales has become in his own animated movie and in the video games, it only seems like a matter of time before Miles is swinging alongside Peter Parker.

We will likely have to wait until the end of the year to see what this ominous truck means, as Spider-Man 3, or whatever it will be called by then, is scheduled for release on December 17, 2021.
