Hello, my name is Ta'Quan Jahmod "T.J." Platt, I'm 16 years of age, 5'8" tall, 145 lbs, an experienced soccer player and an Eagle Scout with a bronze palm. I'm from Pensacola, FL and I attend Pensacola Catholic High School. I would love to play the role of Miles Morales, the blatino Spiderman of Marvel Comics. It would be an honor to do so for Marvel Studios/The MCU, and for my hometown. When Miles Morales was introduced to Marvel Comics in 2011 I was shocked to have seen a black/African-American Spiderman be presented in place of the well-known, much-beloved Peter Parker in the Ultimate Fallout series. It demonstrated good judgement on behalf of the creators, seeing as how the character really struck such a note with so many different people regardless of his unconventional status in pop culture.
In the brilliant Spider-Man: Homecoming film of 2017, Donald Glover (an actor of whom I admire very much) indicated to the audience that he happened to have a "nephew," which could only of course be Miles Morales himself. The Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel is scheduled for July of next year, and if the character is set to be introduced in said film, I would LOVE to be the person that represents him. Though I unfortunately have no Latino ethnicity in my background, I still think I pose a pretty fairly fitting description. I'd even like to think that I look a lot like him in real life, which may be helpful to the appeal of the character.
While I have no agents or credentials in the great big world of acting or stunt performance, if there's even so much as the slightest of a chance that I may have the opportunity to play this character (if confirmed by Kevin Feige, Louis D'Esposito or another certified Marvel employee/official) then I'm willing to work with the studio or on my own time to pay for convenient classes that could help me achieve a status of acting worthy enough to portray my role for the film or films. I'll even work/play as the character for free with no compensation, as my only concern is getting the chance to act as Miles Morales and to portray him in the best way possible for the entire world to see, even if I'm not being payed a dime for it.
If any of you out there believe that I could very well become the face of Miles Morales for Marvel then please take the time to sign this petition and share it on any social media platform that you have with your friends, your family, your dog, your cat, just about anyone you can reach. And if anyone from Marvel is willing to accept or at least consider me, regardless of how early it may be as far as getting a film together, please refer to the contact information below.
Thank you for your time and consideration and have a wonderful day. Go Spiderman and go Marvel!
