I think its just a shoutout but its too soon to say whether or not Miles might make a full blown appearance.
I dont really think Miles should get another on-going solo in the 616 because his ultmate tiltle suffice and there are other characters they could use a solo with.
I rather see spencer write spider woman, spider girl or madame web than another spider-dude title.
Unless miles is gonna take over for pete come issue 700 but that might be throwing the baby out with the bathwater.
Why did my posts get deleted? Binky Boy is a reference to Yu-Gi-Oh: The Abridged Series...

I couldn't see him getting his own solo book and I don't think there's any way Marvel would do that unless they wanted to totally destroy the relevance of the Ultimate line.. which I'm pretty sure they really love considering the writers and artists they're putting on Ultimate books.
I could see, and would probably enjoy, Miles becoming an important character, if not permanently, maybe just for a short arc. He could be a 15 year old kid who has always idolized Spider-Man and sets out to be like him and fails because of his lack of powers, and has to be rescued by Spidey again. Or maybe his childhood experience with being saved by Spidey leads him to try to be Spider-Man's sidekick. Him and Ganke could both be involved and maybe use social media to help Spider-Man solve a crime going on in their school. Anything beyond that would probably be very lame though.
With the Avengers film and the money its making-Black Fury is here to stay. What Marvel did is the same thing that is making it hard for DC to put together 85% of their films. You can't go back to the old Nick Fury (comic wise maybe) and not get a backlash like Green Lantern film did. Noncomic book reading fans grew up with John Stewart as GL and tuned out Hal's film before th first bad review could come out.
Beside what black hero could you put in that film? War Machine? Or Miles as Spidey?
As for Miles. All Marvel is doing is taking advantage of the free press they got when the whole Donald Glover as Spidey started. Despite the fact Miles was already in the works before that.
They are taking advantage of that empty market-the black male teen hero (Cyborg doesn't count). Since DC has ruined every single one to the point once Firestorm gets axed-not 1 book will feature one. Unlike Marvel-who have some around-they just don't have the media attention Miles got.
So what are you going to do? MILK IT! Now does this mean we are going to be seeing Miles swinging around in 616? I doubt it. Why take away from the other book.
Although there is NOTHING stopping Marvel from "revising" his origin in 616.
Peter signs up for Big Brothers & Sisters and Miles is his little brother.
Miles gets a She-Hulk moment with Peter (think about it).
Don't forget Miles's link to the Prowler.
Or the worst-yet funny idea-Miles and Peter are cousins via adoption.
But do we need to put miles in the 616 since he hasnt gotten the mainstream appeal that fury has gotten through the movies and pete still has mainstream appeal due to the movie and the cartoons?
Even if this is just an easter egg - a little shout out to the fans - in the end we all know that it only takes one guy, on one run on Spider-Man, to decide to use it as an excuse to introduce the character into the mainstream franchise properly. Hell, it could even be Bendis himself one day.
I'd consider it an inevitability that Miles Morales will feature within the mainstream Spider-Man books, and sooner rather than later, too.
Which, really, is kind of disappointing. It's seeming less and less like the Ultimate line is anything more than a test ground for its bigger brother. Are all these world shattering changes in the UU just experiments to see which is the most popular with fans so they can start adapting them elsewhere? Will The People be fighting the Avengers within a few years?
Whatever will they think of next? 616 Peter Parker in the UU?
