Venom is now in theaters, and since this is a Marvel Comics movie we’re talking about, you know to stay for the credits just in case there are one or two scenes teasing whatever is coming next. In this case, we get two credits scenes, and they couldn’t be more different.
Of course, in order to dive into what these credits scenes are about and who is in them, we need to talk about spoilers for the ending of Venom. So if you haven’t seen Venom yet, don’t read any further. Read More »

Even if Venom turns out to be a disappointment, we still have Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse to look forward to.

The latest Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse trailer just swung its way online, and it continues to hint at a potentially great film. Watch the trailer below.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse has shot to the top of my must-see list this winter. The film, which follows Miles Morales (Shameik Moore) as he becomes acclimated to his new spider powers and is mentored by the forever-broke Peter Parker (Jake Johnson), looks like it’ll be charming, heartfelt, and poignant, especially with the smattering of father-son dynamics the film provides (with Brian Tyree Henry playing Miles’ police officer father, Jefferson Davis). Also, it looks fantastic. In fact, I’d say it’s the best animation has ever looked in the 21st century.
To be more laser-focused, my gripe lies squarely with the tastemakers who believe that 3D is now the only way to tell a story just because the technology is still considered “new,” even though it’s been in use over 20 years at this point, even before Toy Story came along (let’s not forget Reboot, the first 3D-generated TV show ever, and a show that was rich in story as well). There’s also the idea that there’s only one way 3D characters can look and act in order for it to be deemed as “lucrative.” For me, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, a film combining both 2D and 3D animation techniques, not only allows audiences to rediscover the power of a 2D-animated film, but it also broadens what 3D animation can do.

Nicolas Cage is playing one of several Spider-Men (and women, and robots, and pigs) in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. When it came to approaching the role of Spider-Man Noir, Cage drew on some surprising inspirations: Humphrey Bogart, James Cagney and Edward G. Robinson. In other words, get ready to hear Nicolas Cage doing a old-fashioned gangster voice, everyone.

The only Spider-Man we’ve seen on the big screen is Peter Parker, but that’s about to change this fall when Miles Morales takes the lead in the animated Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. However, he’s far from the only superhero we’ll see with spider-like super powers. The animated movie will see many more characters from the Spider-Verse come to the big screen for the first time, and a new photo from the movie shows us that we’ll also see some Spider-Man suits we’ve never seen in the movies before.

We’ve had three big screen versions of Spider-Man over the past couple decades, but we’ve never had a wallcrawler like the one we’ll see in this fall’s animated comic book movie Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.
This time, it’s young Miles Morales (Shameik Moore of Dope) taking the mantle of Spider-Man, but he’s not the only one with spider-like super powers. There’s still an older Peter Parker bumming around (voiced by Jake Johnson), and there’s also Spider-Gwen (Hailee Steinfeld). Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is taking us deeper into the comic book world of Spider-Man than any movie has before, and the movie’s Hall H panel provided even more insight into what we can expect from this vibrant, stylish approach to Spidey and his universe.

Jake Johnson (New Girl, Jurassic World) is your new Peter Parker.

Instead, it tells the story of Miles Morales, Marvel’s half-black half-Hispanic character who is bitten by a radioactive spider and takes on the superhero mantle. Read More »
