Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 star Yuri Lowenthal has spoken about how the relationship between Miles and Peter is similar to that of the actors behind them.
While speaking with PlayStation LifeStyle, Lowenthal spoke about working with Nadji Jeter, who plays Miles Morales in the Insomniac Games sequel. Lowenthal had plenty of praise for Jeter and noted that the dynamic between the two of them was similar to the one between the two Spider-Men, with Lowenthal being an older experienced actor and Jeter being a younger with less experience.
“It’s been great working with Nadji, and, I’ll tell you what, we didn’t really have to work at that,” Lowenthal explained. “It was just something that sort of happened naturally and came together naturally in that I was an older actor with more experience, he was a younger actor with less experience, which is sort of the “older superhero with more experience and younger superhero with less experience.” [Laughs]. So it actually tracked very organically, in a way. Our relationship off-camera and on-camera. So we got lucky in that respect that we got along and we had sort of a similar relationship. I don’t know if that was Bryan Intihar’s mastermind plan when he cast us. I don’t think it was, as smart and as forward-thinking as he is. [Laughs]. We lucked out in that respect.”
