The afro-latin super-hero, created in 2011 by Brian Michael Bendis and Sara Pichelli for the Ultimate Marvel universe, joins the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.
The project will be the first MCU animated production being distributed in movie theatres and the production is by Sony Pictures Animation.
The Californian studio, famous for gathering some of the top talent in the industry, like the director Genndy Tartakovsky, has been, nonetheless, broadly criticised for its irregular results and lacking a proper voice.
The new trailer of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse can shake that fame with its bold aesthetics and a clear emphasis in action and not comedy, an atypical formula in the US’s big animation productions panorama.
This option brands the new production as a belonging part, not a sidelines spin-off, of the MCU spirit. Animation fans that may feel tired of aesthetics currently ruling over the American animation mainstream (even more realistic hair?) will find in the new trailer reasons to check out this adventure, with its graphic approach having strong 2D elements.
The executive production is by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, with Lord as the screenwriter. The duo, acclaimed for its work in The Lego Movie was associated to Solo: a Star Wars Story until last Summer.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse was announced last January by Sony and its release date is December, the 14th, 2018
