Okay, conceptually and visually, I'm sold. Really dig the jagged, dropped frames animation. Whatever you call that style.

gotta be a holdover from lord and miller’s work on the lego movie, right? looks fantastic here though, super-distinctive

also i wonder if they’re introducing the spider-verse here so they can keep their options open for introducing a live-action miles to the mcu further down the line

I kept looking for this to open but just realized it's not until Dec. 2018, dang.

I don't want to start a new thread every time Sony comes up with a dumb new Spider-spinoff, so...hey, guys! They're making a Silk movie! And if you find yourself asking 'who the hell is Silk?', well, just wait until the general public gets wind of this announcement!

This is seriously one of the dumbest of the dumb ideas. I like the character fine but she's been around for all of like three years and I don't know if she's that well-known or popular. Oh, and her series was cancelled last year, so...

Who could forget that! (I had forgotten that.)

I'm looking forward to the inevitable Rocket Racer & Leap-Frog buddy comedy.

Sony’s “Spider-Man universe but without Spider-Man” is dumb as hell

Why does my phone auto hyphenate Spider-Man?

I dunno, but it's a real pain every time I'm trying to correspond with my good friend Murray Spiderman.

not sure all the humour's going to hit but this really does look incredible

There are multiple Spider-Men in different dimensions that are kind of colliding together. My character's Spider-Man Noir. He's really Peter Parker from the '30s. I tried to channel those noir films with (Humphrey) Bogart, and have those kinds of sounds that he might make with (James) Cagney, or Edward G. Robinson, that kind of way of talking. I tried to give the character that. It was a lot of fun. I think it should be quite funny. The movie definitely has a sense of humor, and that's a good thing because it's good for the whole family.

This looks fun and probably miles better than the Bendis comics

I guess the one upside of superhero movie saturation is that audiences don't need to be told the same origin story over and again now, and they can do more... comic-booky stories, I guess?

NB I'm pretending Venom doesn't exist for the sake of that argument

Early reviews of this thing seem to be almost uniformly stellar.

I don't go to the cinema because of my tinnitus but I might make an exception for this. Will bring space helmet.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse
Because we should probably have a thread about the best-looking film I've seen this year.

I loved this.
Just like The Lego Movie, even if it weren't an effective and sweet heart-warming funny film, just on a visual level it's an incredible work.

Was coming around to seeing it soon, now I'm completely sold thanks to this:

Friend who's seen it specifically agreed with this sentence:

This movie is what would happen if you took all the action and complex plots from the live-action Marvel movies, added the heart, humor and relatability of a Pixar film, with all of the dialogue by the staff writers of Atlanta.

Also interesting:

Seen some promo thing about Peter Parker forgetting how awesome it is to be Spiderman. Having a girlfriend killed, being tortured, buried alive, having an eye plucked out, briefly becoming a villain+murderer, your identity and lifespan in doubt, becoming a wife beater and Joe Quezada trying to destroy your marriage will do that to a guy.

This was terrific. Now that almost any superhero concept can be done live-action, it was great to see a smart film that really had to be an animated film.

WmC, Sunday, 16 December 2018 04:25 (yesterday) Permalink

Really liked this - and I have no previous interest in Spider-Man. The animation was spectacular and the colours often very beautiful, and the humour was fast and effective. Definitely worth seeing at the cinema.

Luna Schlosser, Sunday, 16 December 2018 06:22 (yesterday) Permalink

Yep, excellent film. Takes full advantage of the medium and truly feels like a comic book on the screen. I saw Aquaman the night before which was such an inept mess comparatively

Vinnie, Sunday, 16 December 2018 07:17 (yesterday) Permalink

Enjoyed this. Great fun.
Liked the end graphics too. Very trippy.

& it does have an end of credits scene which I didn't quite get the context of.

BUt great fun, is it going to get sequels do you think?

A whole Marvel Noir film, & what else came out around the same time that series first did? Was it just the Mayflower one too?
Could see some mileage in the first, less in the latter.

But Miles is set up now.
Everybody else there had a previous incarnation in comics i think. Not sure about Spider girl or was that in a What If?
Not come across the Sp//dr and Peni Parker thing before though.

Stevolende, Sunday, 16 December 2018 09:55 (yesterday) Permalink

All of them come from the comics.

GDPR vs GAPDY (DJP), Sunday, 16 December 2018 15:54 (yesterday) Permalink

I was confused about something (spoilers?) .....

So Miles lives in a world where there already is a Spider-man, but then he gets bit by a *different* radioactive spider that's been wandering around? Where did the other spider come from? Nbd, I loved this, just was a bit confused.

Josh in Chicago, Sunday, 16 December 2018 17:03 (yesterday) Permalink

For those who might not be aware, Spider-Verse was an event in the comics a couple years back which mashed together literally every incarnation of Spider-Man that ever existed, including all of the variations from the comics as well as, for instance, the one from the '67 Bakshi cartoon and the one from the Electric Company and the one from the Japanese show where he piloted a giant robot. It was kinda nuts and surprisingly more fun than disastrous.

Home Despot (Old Lunch), Sunday, 16 December 2018 17:09 (yesterday) Permalink

(I can't speak to the movie I haven't seen yet, but in the Ultimate comics there was a Peter Parker Spider-Man who died and then, yes, Miles was later bitten by a different spider and became Spider-Man Mk II.)

Home Despot (Old Lunch), Sunday, 16 December 2018 17:12 (yesterday) Permalink

This was fantastic - visually stunning, funny, sweet and practically bursting with ideas.

I watched this followed right after by Aquaman, which was such a letdown in comparison.

re the post credits scene: it (and pretty much the whole movie tbh) is a riff on this classic internet meme.

Roz, Sunday, 16 December 2018 17:31 (yesterday) Permalink

xpost Which is sort of what happens here. But where did the other spider come from, years after Peter Parker was first bitten? I thought the first spider was a one-off.

Josh in Chicago, Sunday, 16 December 2018 17:32 (yesterday) Permalink

I thought all of the ending credits were tons of fun.

Josh in Chicago, Sunday, 16 December 2018 17:33 (yesterday) Permalink

In the comics, some scientist was trying to reverse engineer Spidey's powers after his death and Miles was bitten by one of those experimental spiders. Guessing they probably didn't want to delve too deeply into the whole 'harvesting hero corpses for their superhuman abilities' thing in this film and just left it at 'hey look, another spider'.

Home Despot (Old Lunch), Sunday, 16 December 2018 17:48 (yesterday) Permalink

I think I was wondering more about the bit leading up to that photo. In the internet meme like.
