Based on Marvel’s Spider-Man Created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko

Main Title Sequence -- Opening on a battle splintered through the stylistic credits. A

battle to the death: Spider-Man vs The Hobgoblin. The Year is 2010. Hobgoblin

reveals an Incendiary Pumpkin Bomb, before he could throw Peter tackles him in a

tattered spider-man suit. The bomb rolls out of Hobgoblin’s hands vaporizing a Pillar.

The Building begins to collapse. Hobgoblin is Trapped under rubble, Peter is pinned

down by heavy machinery, blood pools and Peter reaches a pretty startling

realization… His leg is either crushed beyond repair or worse… Amputated. Peter

pulls himself out and sadly, his leg is gone. He crawls over to the Hobgoblin, pinned

down and screaming for help. Peter pushes himself up, sitting on his only knee. He

uses what strength he has left to pull the large wall pinning Hobgoblin down off of

him. Peter pulls a piece of Hobgoblin’s cape making a tourniquet. The title sequence

ends here…

Open: 2020. Brooklyn. “Who am I? Sure, you wanna know. Listen my story isn’t the

faint of heart story. If anyone told you I was normal, an average kid just not a care in

the world… He doesn’t know about Power or Responsibility.” CAMERA pushes in

on the outside of a Brooklyn Apartment, on the basketball court is a Kid, playing

basketball and listening to music - This kid is only 17, but he’s something special and

his name is Miles Morales. “That’s me.” the Alarm on his phone goes off ‘7:30A.M.’

His mom and dad are in the apartment above, His Mom, Sweet and strong: Rio, and

his Dad is a Gentle giant: Jefferson “Listen, this is a story worth telling cause it’s the

most important story there is.” Jefferson leans out the window to call out to Miles.

Jefferson: Miles come on. We gotta go sport.

“It’s about Family. And the responsibility behind them.”

Miles: Coming.

Miles grabs his stuff and gets into gear. In the midst of getting ready he gets a phone

call “Ganke Li” Ganke tells him the class is heading to Alchemax Labs. This breaks

into a MONTAGE: Miles parkour through the city, listening to Hip Hop music.

Cut to: Alchemax - Their Teacher (O.S.) Begins doing roll call, Miles arrives dunking

in through the crowd, Catches up to Ganke and Fist bumps. A Bully, Kenny Kong,

speaks up in the roll call --

Kong: C’mon dude. This is already boring!

The camera pans, Revealing the teacher: Peter Parker. Now in his 40’s brandishing a

Beard and a cane.

Peter: Well Mr. Kong, perhaps you’d find Summer School more exciting.

The class laughs and Peter ushers them into the Lab. As they enter a tour guide grabs

them presenting them through their Open Research. They have on display research

tapes and data cards of ‘Spider-Man.’ The Tour Guide begins to explain their

research, even making light that many photos on display were courtesy of Spider-

Man’s Unofficial Publicist, Peter. They explain the details of Spider-Man’s

transformation (or how they believed it occured) and their hopes to replicate such

The class seperates into Groups, Miles and Ganke step over. Ganke points out the ‘2nd

Largest Electron Microscope on the Easter Seaboard.’ and Miles Jokes how boring

that sentence was. Kong pushes through, almost throwing Miles, too look at it --

Kenny: Move it losers.

Kenny bens over and Miles looks back at Ganke, brandishing a cheap ink pen. Ganke

shakes his head ‘No.’ and Miles shakes his head ‘Yes.’ Miles sneaks behind Kong,

Dangles the Pen above Kong’s exposed butt crack. Miles gives a sly smile, drops the

Pen -- It lands and Kong jumps spinning around to see Miles. He grabs Miles and

pushes him into a Case where some of the Spiders are behind housed. Mile’s elbow

crashes through the glass. A Spider slides into his Shirt under the collar. Peter pulls

the two apart. He notices the cuts on Miles’ elbow. The Tour Guide escorts Miles to a

nurses station.

In the Nurses Station Miles sits, the Nurse is putting some light bandages on his

elbow, The spider trickles Down Miles’ arm while the nurse is turned away. Miles

stares at it, almost frozen by shock. It bites and he shakes his hand, It drops and

trickles away. The Nurse turns around and checks his temperature. Looks at it, and

tells him if he feels ill or odd to go to the ER.

Cut to: F.E.A.S.T. HQ - Martin Li, a pillar of the community and Ganke’s father. He

sits in his office going over paperwork. A loud crash is heard, a smaller guy enters

half way-in the door; tell’s Li there’s a disturbance. Li rises, exits the door. He gets in
between two Homeless people fighting each other. Li tells them they’re acting like

Children. They tell him what started it and He tells them to stand down. One of them

leans in and whispers something into his ear. Li backs up. Stares him down, tells him

to come to his office. They enter Li’s office, the Man tells Li he owes them Bodies. Li

tells them to meet later at the Docks. The Man exits the Office, Li is begins to glow,

the lights flicker. He rushes to his desk and pulls a syringe full of a glowing black

formula. He injects himself, the intensity dies out. He relaxes. Another knock at the

door, he composes himself and signals them to come in. He turns and is greeted by his

Wife: Gwen Stacy-Li. She asks what the issue was, Li waves it off as a training issue

between the two, tells her it’s nothing serious.

checks his watch ‘5:45pm’ He puts the papers away. Leaves.

Cut To: Peter, Mary Jane, and J. Jonah Jameson and his Wife eat dinner at a very nice

restaurant. Jameson sits, more docile and less vicious almost a shell of his former self.

always quick to assure him that He’s not to blame. What we see is a Friendship that

seems to defy logic. Peter and Jameson speak as old friends.

Cut to: Peter lays in bed. Restless next to Mary Jane, sleeping peacefully. He gets up,

sliding a prosthetic leg and steps over to his closet. He opens it looking at the Spider-

black ensemble. He zips up a hoody and pulls the hood over his head, He slides the

behind his apartment, stepping into the night.

wants. He refuses to just see their slaves sold back as lackluster soldiers. The Triad

Members tell him he doesn’t have a choice, mentioning that if he doesn’t like the way

things are going, they’ll have to ‘take care of him’. Li shakes his head telling them to

apologize. They laugh and pull guns on him. Li scoffs at them.

Li: You think you little men know power? I’ll show you power.

Li transforms (we don’t see), (From a distance) the Triad begins to unload their guns

on him. He smirks, His hand turns into a glowing waves of energy, He shoots out a

wave of energy!

onto the floor, Freaking out. The door opens and Miles presses himself against the

back. Miles asks his mom how she feels about Spider-Man, she tells him -

Rio: He was good for the neighborhood, but I keep thinking a man like that, he had to

have someone who loved him, and thinking of that person waiting every night to see

him come home… It’s as scary as it is with you’re father, and I don’t wish that on

away. Ganke pulls his phone out and begins recording Miles as he scales the building.

Miles eyes, widen moving almost in a panic. He makes it ontop of the building, his

back against the wall, he questions: “What’s happening to me?” His phone ‘Dings’

with a notification. A text from Ganke “DUDE!” and a video attatched: Miles

Ganke is in awe. Miles sighs and Ganke begins to question him. Of Ganke’s series of

questions the one that stands out being “Are you Spider-Man now?” Miles very
quickly dismisses the question. Ganke’s face drops. Ganke insists that Miles tells his

parents about the powers. Before Miles can answer Kenny Kong and three other

Midtown Bullies approach him. Miles warns Kenny not too. Miles leans over spitting

right into his lunch, mocking him:

Kong: Gonna eat that? Loser.

Miles stands. Hands up just tired.

Miles: Kenny can we not do this today? Please?

Ganke tells Kenny to leave him alone, one of Kenny’s goons grabs Ganke in an


Miles: Kenny. Stop.

Kenny: What? Got Hood Practice.

Miles: You’re going over the line man.

Kenny shoves Miles. Miles warns him to stop. Kenny does it again. And again. And

again. Miles lightly pushes Kenny back. He laughs at Miles for pushing “like a baby.”

(Extreme close-up Hairs on Mile’s fingers begin to “sharpen” pulsing with a blueish

venom) Miles puts some force into it, shoves Kenny who at the touch begins to

convulse like he’s being hit with a cattle prod, while the force from Miles sends

Kenny flying then sliding backwards across the cafeteria -- Everyone stares amazed.

welcomes him. Peter asks for the room and Davis respectfully exits, allowing Peter

and Miles to talk. Peter waste no time in addressing the incident with Kenny Kong.

Miles deflects saying he barely touched him. Peter smiles.

Peter: You know. Kenny probably deserved that, well he did. But you didn’t have the

right too.

Miles groans and Peter asks Miles to show him his wrist. Miles immediately deflects:

Miles: Mr. Parker, I’m not cutting myself or anything. I’m not depressed.

Peter: I know you’re not. Just let me see…

Miles closes his eyes as if to say a silent prayer. Peter unbuttons his shirt, twisting it

so Miles could see where the opening is for Peter’s web. Peter asks Miles to open his

eyes. Miles does and is shocked, shows Peter his wrist and it’s very similar. Miles

stands up.

Miles: You… You’re Spider-Man?

have a normal life… But now I resent it. I hate myself for not being that anymore. I

resent myself being Spider-Man anymore.

MJ: You can’t let that control you anymore. You spent years out there every night and

I spent every night for years worrying about you. You’ve done Uncle Ben proud but

you can’t let this keep haunting you.

Peter: Roderick how would he know anything about that. How would he know about

the Hobgoblin?

Miles: Let her go!

Li: No.

Miles: Why are you doing this? To my mom? To Ganke?

Li: There’s people out there that need protection. They have no one to go to Miles and

I provide the protection. They get to bypass these lousy cops and this broken system.

Miles: The system isn’t perfect but it’s the best we got. You want to circumvent that?

You want to be Judge, Jury, and Executioner. It’s wrong.

Li: Maybe you think so. Maybe you just haven’t suffered enough.

Miles: Stop please. Don’t take her. Take me. You want me to suffer? Don’t make it an

innocent person
