‘Spiderman: Across The Spiderverse’.


With all the DC news popping off recently, us comic book fans can’t can’t ever deny that Marvel always seems to have one in the chamber.  While the constant speculation over “No Way Home” has been at a fever pitch since the first look at the first bits of the first trailer LEAKED on someone’s cell phone… (yes, people have been throwing theories like frisbees since then.) we now have something different look forward to.  One of the best reviewed Spiderman films since 2006’s ‘Spiderman 2’, “Into The Spiderverse” put us in an entirely different pair of shoes when it came to the much loved protagonist.  Instead of following Peter Parker, “Into The Spiderverse” features the newer Miles Morales version of Spiderman (among a few others).  While Morales was hinted at in ‘Spiderman: Homecoming’, he was in full force in his own film, which not has an official release window, and titles.  No one knew that the next Spiderman news to rock the internet would have NOTHING to do with the 2023 sequel “Across The Spiderverse” but we’re happy that it is. For those of you were are oblivious to the WONDER that was “Into The Spiderverse”, take a look at what ‘WIRED’ dug up on how the original was created.

A Very Spidey Christmas Everyone =)


 

In addition to the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack and Daniel Pemberton’s Original Score, Sony Classical and Sony Pictures Animation are releasing a very special Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Christmas album, appropriately titled A Very Spidey Christmas.

The album, which is now available everywhere, features original tracks from a few of your favorite Spiders from the critically-acclaimed animated feature, including Shameik Moore (Miles Morales/Spider-Man), Jake Johnson (Peter B. Parker/Spider-Man), Chris Pine (Peter Parker/Spider-Man), and Jorma Taccone (Spider-Man 1967).  Listen to all five tracks below:

Up on the House Top – Chris Pine (1:45)
5. The Night Before Christmas 1967 (Spoken Word) – Jorma Taccone (2:45)

 

Into The Spider-Controversey…


It’s amazing how quickly the internet can be set aflame by something small, or in this case something people should who feel the need to voice their opinion should already know.  The new Spider-Man is half black, half Dominican.  It’s not a big deal.  In Spiderman: Homecoming, when Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino mentions his “nephew that lives here” at the 2:23 mark, and that is a direct reference to Miles Morales, (who has a criminal uncle that he’s reluctantly forced to combat in the books).

 

The new Sony helmed, animated Spider-Man movie is much in the vein of the TMNT movie from the same animation studio, but promises to pass the torch to Miles Morales in a way that also introduces the “Spider-verse”, (a universe where Peter Parker is still alive, and all manner of amazing things still happen).  Many people don’t know about this change that happened in 2011, but have been quite vocal about the new Spider-Man being of a different race.  (To them I say, if you haven’t read a book since 2011, maybe get with the times… and literacy)  To the writing staff personally, if you’re skinny, and black, and can do incredible things to help other people in need, who’s to complain?  I enjoy it.  Lets see what Sony can do with this.

Donald Glover Is The New Spiderman?


Community - Season 4

This is how the story started…

Back when Sony was planning on rebooting Spider-Man, actor and comedian Donald Glover started a grassroots campaign online to get cast in the role. Though the part eventually went to Andrew Garfield, many titans of comics and film put their support behind Glover and the movement eventually led to the creation of Miles Morales, the new Ultimate Spider-Man. Now, Glover finally gets his wish and will provide the voice of Morales in an upcoming episode of Disney XD’s “Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors.”

“That’s the great part about the Spider-Man costume: He can be anybody.  Spider-Man could be a girl. Spider-Man could be an old man. You don’t know. So I just tried to be as me as possible, because you’re always just going to bring it back to yourself when you watch the show…Spider-Man is the best because you just don’t know who he is, and he’s funny and he’s poor. I understand Spider-Man a lot on that level. He’s just trying to make it.”

The new season of “Ultimate Spider-Man” premieres this Sunday on Disney XD, but Glover’s stint as Morales won’t air until next year. Also, lest you think that Glover is content with settling his “campaign” by providing this voice, he still has hopes to put on the tights some day.

“I still have hopes to do something like that one day. I don’t look at this as second place. Spider-Man, he’s such an icon — you have to do something with him.”
