First off, this is Sony’s “Spider-Man” and has nothing to do with Marvel and the Cinematic Universe. But Disney owns the merchandising rights and that is how they are connected to this movie.
What’s cool about this animated movie is that this is the first movie to introduce a new Spider-Man. But not only that, this is the first movie to show an adult Peter Parker mentoring a young Miles Morales to be his own version of Spider-Man. Also, Chris Lord and Phil Miller, who were fired by Lucasfilm as the directors of “Solo: A Star Wars Story“, are behind this one. So let’s see if this does better than “Solo”.
Official Trailer for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse
This art style for “Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse” is pretty funky. Seems like it combines CGI with hand drawn animation and also a comic book style of storytelling.
What I love about this is we are finally seeing an adult Peter Parker as Spider-Man and playing the role of Mr. Miyagi to Miles’ Daniel-son. My favorite Spider-Man has always been one that has had years of experience and is much older than the 15 year old, well teenage, versions we normally see in the movies.
This is a different universe than the one that has Peter Parker as the only Spider-Man. And Miles Morales is such a great character and a fun twist on the Spider-Man mythos. Miles’ story is different from Peter’s, he has different powers than Peter, and his final costume looks amazing! Like Peter tells Miles in this trailer, “Don’t do it like me. Do it like you”.
Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse introduces Brooklyn teen Miles Morales, and the limitless possibilities of the Spider-Verse, where more than one can wear the mask.
Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, the creative minds behind The Lego Movie and 21 Jump Street, bring their unique talents to a fresh vision of a different Spider-Man Universe, with a groundbreaking visual style that’s the first of its kind.
Sony’s “Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse” opens December 14.
