OK, I see your broader point about the MCU  -- they have, indeed, been mixing Ultimate with mainstream from the get go. I think such behaviour is particularly ill-fitting for Spider-Man, though, because he (and his supporting cast) is so well known to the wider public.

This notwithstanding though, I think the point still stands that despite the mix-and-match approach to Marvel Studios when it comes to ultimate or mainstream, there is something illogical about arbitrarily trying to shoe-horn one specific character (in this case, Ganke Lee) into the guise of another. I just don't see the point.

I agree

I wouldn't mind seeing Miles in this movie. He could be another student at school. Give him a nod and move on.

I've seen people here and elsewhere suggest they should have brought in Miles Morales instead of Peter Parker.

My response to that is....NO! Just about everyone knows who Peter Parker is. Even if they don't read comics. Miles Morales, on the other hand, would elicit a blank stare if you asked the average person who that is. A movie featuring him would lead to a lot of people asking `Why is a black guy posing as Spider-Man and wearing a costume that looks nothing like his?'

The way to do Miles Morales is to bring him in is as a non-powered classmate of Peter's who gains his powers in the second or third movie he is in, and becoming a second Spider-Man, running around at the same time as Peter, not replacing him.
