We have been anticipating Spider-man: Into the Spider-verse ever since the first trailer hit the internet. The comic book inspired animation along with the choice of having Miles Morales as the lead character was 2 great decisions.
Miles Morales has been a favorite of comic book readers since he was created by Brian Michael Bendis and Sarah Pichelli. His following outside the comic book pages has been small. Hopefully this movie will help to bring him into the public’s eye.
His origin story is roughly parallel to the Spider-men/Spider-women of other dimensions… They get bitten by a radioactive spider and gain powers. Their powers are mostly the same, except Miles also has the ability to camouflage himself in his environment and he has a venom strike that can paralyze most people with just a touch.
The villains in this movie aside from Kingpin don’t get mentioned much. They are used as stereotypical bad guys, but they are some of the bigger names in the Spider-man rogues gallery.
There are some great easter eggs hidden throughout the movie. Pay close attention to the names in Mile’s cell phone contact list. You’ll also want to stay around for the after credits to get a glimpse at another lesser known Spider-man variant, Spider-man 2099.
We really like Spider-man: Into the Spider-verse. The audience overwhelmingly agreed with us. Sony has finally made a Spider-man movie that rivals the Marvel movies. Sony may have found their niche in animation.
Let us know what you thought about the movie in the comments. What was your favorite alternate dimension Spider-man?
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is an animated superhero film based on the Marvel Comics character Miles Morales / Ultimate Spider-Man.
The premise is a scientific experiment gone wrong creates a rift between dimensions. This allows Spider characters from those dimensions to cross-over to the Miles Morales Ultimate Universe. It’s a good thing because it is gonna take all of them to fix the problem before it destroys all the multiverse.
The animation style used for Into the Spider-verse is a unique combination of the in-house computer animation of Sony Pictures Imageworks and traditional hand-drawn comic book techniques.
The trailer gives us a glimpse into what appears to be the Spider-man movie we deserve. We will see if it lives up to it’s promise when Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse hits the big screen on December 14, 2018.
Ultimate Spider-man was created by writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Sarah Pichelli. Miles Morales first appeared in Ultimate Fallout #4 following the death of Peter Parker. Miles is from the Ultimate Marvel continuity, which was separate from the mainstream Marvel Universe.
Marvel ended the Ultimate Universe in 2015 and Miles Morales is one of the characters that made the transition to the mainstream Marvel continuity.
Miles was bitten by a spider genetically engineered by Norman Osborn who was attempting to duplicate Spider-man’s abilities. Miles gained abilities similar to the original Spider-Man. His spider-sense is not as strong. It only warns him of immediate danger. Miles has two additional abilities; he is able to camouflage himself and he has a venom strike that paralyzes almost anyone with just a touch.
Into the Spider-verse sees Miles crossing into parallel dimensions to team up with the Spider-Men of those dimensions to stop a threat to all reality. The Spider-verse concept originated in the comic books. It has also been adapted into the third/fourth seasons of Ultimate Spider-Man (2012).
They want the movie to feel like you are inside a comic book. CGI was combined with comic book techniques to make it appear to be created by hand. Judging from the trailer, they succeeded.
We will be watching this in theaters on December 14th. Miles Morales is a great Marvel character and it’s about time he sees some of the limelight. Are you excited to see Into the Spider-verse? What alternate version of Spider-man are you hoping to see in the movie? Let us know in the comments.

Jack and Troy from ZiaComics.com geek out over the upcoming Spider-man story arc “Dead no More”.
A villain is collecting Spider-Man’s greatest foes for some nefarious and sinister purpose. That villain has the ability to return the dead to life in some capacity. So far these resurrections have only affected supporting characters. There are several big names that have been brought up recently though such as Rhino, Electro, Madame Web, Doctor Octopus, and Lizard.
The most obvious name is Otto Octavius who was revealed to still be alive in the body of The Living Brain at the end of Amazing Spider-Man #1. Doc Ock transplanted his mind into Peter Parker’s body in the Superior Spider-man series. He then proceeded to become what he believed to be a Superior Spider-man. During his short time in Peter Parker’s body he was able to finish Peter’s PHD, turn Peter’s company into a financial success, fix Aunt May’s legs, fix Flash Thompson’s legs, reduce crime in the city to a minimum, and put J. Jonah Jameson under his control.
One Spider-villain turned ally has been waiting to make a return as well. Ever since Silver Sable was killed by The Rhino in “Ends of the Earth” Peter has felt guilty about her death. He has obsessed over his inability to save her and what he would do to save everyone.
Someone with the ability to bring the dead back to life is plotting against Peter and collecting some of his greatest foes to help. “Dead No More” is bound to feature The Lizard, The Rhino, Doctor Octopus, and Silver Sable all in some capacity The only major question is who is behind all of this?
Miles Morales is a fictional superhero who appears in comic books published by Marvel Comics. He is one of the characters who goes by the identity of Spider-Man.
The character was created by writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Sara Pichelli. Bendis and Marvel editor-in-chief Axel Alonso drew inspiration from both U.S. President Barack Obama and American actor Donald Glover.
Miles Morales first appeared in Ultimate Fallout #4 (August 2011) following the death of Peter Parker. He is a teenager of Black Hispanic descent. Miles is the second Spider-Man to appear in Ultimate Marvel, an imprint with a separate continuity from the mainstream Marvel Universe.
Morales is featured in the Ultimate Comics Spider-Man comic book series. He is not the lead character in the Ultimate Spider-Man animated TV series that debuted in April 2012 on Disney XD. After Marvel ended the Ultimate imprint in 2015 Miles was made a character in the main Marvel Universe. His beginning in the main Marvel Universe was with stories under the All-New, All-Different Marvel brand published that same year.
Reaction to the character varied. Some, including Spider-Man’s creator, Stan Lee, approved the creation of a positive role model for non-white children. Others showed displeasure at the replacement of Peter Parker. Some even decried it as a publicity stunt motivated by political correctness, a charge Alonso denied. Alexandra Petri of The Washington Post called for the character to be judged on the quality of its stories, which have garnered positive reviews.
The character possesses powers similar to those of the original Spider-Man, which were derived from the bite of a spider genetically engineered by Spider-Man’s nemesis Norman Osborn in an attempt to duplicate those abilities.
