Through Spider-Verse Producers On The Movie’s Villain – GameSpot

Sony is leaving no stone unturned to tease fans about Miles Morales’ new adventure in Spider-Man: Through the Spider-Verse. With a slew of promotional material, the studio is making sure everyone knows about the highly anticipated sequel to its Oscar-winning feature film. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, the writers-producers Phil Lord and Chris Miller teased Miles’ way forward and gave us a fresh look at the character.

The new image is from the movie antagonist The Spot’s (Jason Schwartzmann) as you can see the outline of his dalmatian spotted costume. Looks like Miles (Shameik Moore) confronts him in a grocery store, as a lot of things are spread out on the floor, while Miles watches him while eating a chocolate bar. Real Spider-Man stuff! The image features a classic dotted animation finished with a blur effect. The image is just a preview of the six animation styles used in the upcoming feature.

The recently released trailer for the film shows Miles’ mother begging him to take care of her “little boy” no matter where he goes. Elaborating on Spider-Man’s main dilemma, Miller explained, “Growing up, he’s trying to figure out how he can go out and see the world, and spread his wings and leave the nest.” Adding: “But he also feels rooted in his home and his family. It’s this back and forth of your teenage life, where you’re like, How can I become my own person, but also not lose where I came from?” In the film’s first teaser, we saw Spider-Gwen return to Miles and ask him to embark on a new adventure. It seems that in this multiversal rift, Miles’ family and his freedom will both be at stake.

In line with its predecessor, Through the Spider-Verse will also feature a large number of Spider-People. The studio has already given us a look at Mayday Parker, Spider-Punk, Spider-Man India, and Jessica Drew. Speaking of Issa Rae‘s Drew, who is a pregnant superhero on a motorcycle, Lord revealed that a lot of work had been done to “make this character look great”. Another iteration of web-slinger that we are going to see is Oscar Isaac‘s Spider-Man 2099. Miller teases, “He’s not the villain of the movie, but he’s sort of an antagonist to Miles because they both think what they’re doing is the right thing.

As for the feature film’s main antagonist The Spot, the duo feel his trippy powers make him “a perfect character for animation.” Lord explained, “I like villains best when they reflect the hero’s journeys – a sort of dark mirror of the protagonist.” Adding: “And I think Spot is no different. He wants to be considered legitimate. He’s a character who has a silly costume and isn’t always considered Spider-Man’s greatest enemy, but like all of us, he wants to be taken seriously.”

Spider-Man: Through the Spider-Verse will debut on June 2, 2023.
