Spider-Man is arguably Marvel’s most prominent and recognized character in the comic world. Before I ever knew about Batman or Superman or Wonder Woman, etc, I knew who Spider Man was through this cartoon I used to watch all of the time as a child. It used to be one of my favorite pastimes as I watched Peter Parker fighting bad guys like the Green Goblin and Doctor Octopus (he’s my favorite Spider-Man villain) and saving his girlfriend, Mary Jane, from the vile clutches of the villains. Since then, however, I haven’t really been a huge Spider-Man fan simply because the movies weren’t that great. I wasn’t old enough to watch the first major Spider-Man movies starring Toby Macguire. I saw The Amazing Spider-Man 2 starring Andrew Garfield at a movie theaters. Didn’t like it. It took until 2016’s Captain America: Civil War to make me a Spider-Man fan again as Tom Holland’s perfect rendition of the character was brought to life. Since then I have become super interested in the teenage superhero again and now, with Sony providing us a look at another Spider-Man phenom who goes by the name of Miles Morales, I was super interested in seeing the trailer for this new movie. Here it is.
First off, I LOVE this animation. When I heard Sony was making another Spider-Man movie I didn’t know whether to be excited or confused. Wasn’t there already a story involving Spider-Man being told through the MCU? After seeing this trailer I am now beyond intrigued about this film for several reasons. One, like I said before, is because of the animation. When I think of an animated film I usually imagine something on par with Pixar’s design of animated movies or something a little more cartoony like Scooby-Doo but the animation for this film is 100% rad. It feels like the movie is catering to adults and children at the same time, for the animation feels like something I could see on Adult Swim, and yet the content of the film is of course very family friendly.
