I Met Miles Morales!

Well, I met the voice of Miles Morales. Nadji Jeter, who voices Miles in both Marvel’s Spider-Man and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, was at the Game On Expo in Phoenix this past weekend.

He’s also done Miles in the 2017 Spider-Man show, a few other games (including Ultimate Alliance 3) and will voice him once more in the upcoming and highly anticipated Marvel’s Spider-Man 2! And I got to meet him!

That’s me, with him. He’s obviously the one that actually looks cool. I told him that I’ve been watching him since back in the 2017 show and that he’s the voice I hear when I read Miles comics. I mean, no disrespect to Shamiek Moore, but Nadji’s been on Miles longer and more often, so I’ve had more exposure to his version of the character. He seemed very appreciative of my praise!

That’s not all though, Marvelites! I had him sign the front of my copy of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales! The art side, because that looks cooler. And then, unprovoked, he said “Lemme see your phone!” And signed my phone case too! I mean, I can never use it again because I have to preserve it now, but I needed a new case anyways!

After that he had a panel at the expo with Daisuke Tsuji, the voice of Jin from Ghosts of Tsushima. I let them know I did voice acting on my channel and asked how to improve (because I’m always looking for ways to make the vids better for you guys!) I explained that I sometimes struggle with consistency, and I’ll have a perfect take and then another that’s trash.

Daisuke told me that voice acting is just a form of acting, so to improve my base acting skills will also improve my VO skills. Nadji said he was gonna blow my mind, then told me that sometimes the trash takes are the ticket! He said there were takes he did that he thought sucked but everyone outside of the booth loved. He said not to be so hard on myself and to keep going!

There were a lot of interesting facts revealed on the panel. The first scans for Miles were done in Serbia!? Nadji is currently listening to the same thing I am, Metro Boomin’s Spider-Verse soundtrack. He kept saying they got something real good coming for us on October 20th (the release date for Marvel’s Spider-Man 2). He’s really excited about that. His favorite character to voice is Miles. His favorite character in his game was Phin. His favorite scene from the first game was when Spider-Man taught Miles how to fight. And the hardest scene for him to do was after Jefferson Davis died in the first game, because he had to act out being sad about the death of his father, but unfortunately Nadji never had that father figure. So instead he thought about his (thankfully still alive) uncle.

I had so much fun, and I’m so glad I got to meet him, get his autograph (twice) and hear about stories from his voice acting adventures as Miles Morales! I can’t wait to see what he’s so excited about in the next game! Can it be October yet!? That’s it for now, Face Front True Believers, and I’ll see you in the Multiverse!
