It’s so far a pretty mundane Wednesday despite it being New Comic Book Day for the fans of the medium and that makes the freshly released full trailer for Sony Animations “Spider-Man: Into The Spiderverse” a welcome thing. Let’s take a look.
Though the excitement about films is pretty much relegated to the Friday opening of “Star Wars: The Last Jedi”, it was cool to see the Official Teaser Trailer for the 2018 animated film “Spider-Man: Into The Spiderverse” which comes care of Sony Pictures animation division. Check out yon teaser below and then I’ll add in some editorial thoughts.
The Premise: In the “classic Spider-Man mold”, Miles Morales must juggle his high school life with his status as a Superhero.
Shameik Moore as Miles Morales/Spider-Man
Mahershala Ali as Aaron Davis/Prowler
Brian Tyree Henry as Jefferson Davis
PiercingMetal Thoughts: Based on the characters popularity, its nice to see Miles Morales making his way to the big screen even if its first being done as an animated feature. One has to think that by doing it in this fashion that Sony Pictures will also deliver the mega-popular Spider-Gwen and perhaps even the futuristic Spider-Man 2099. The opportunities are endless with the Spider-verse despite is not being connected to Disney’s Marvel Cinematic Universe. I am okay with that as long as we can keep on using the traditional Peter Parker Spider-Man. Since I don’t say much about teaser trailers, I will close out with that this looks promising and that is because the animation can be so spot on nowadays based on the technology. Let’s just hope for a solid story. I’ll add more on this when a longer full trailer comes to light and to leave you with some material, below are some links to Miles Morales Spider-Man items. Let me know if you liked the teaser down in the comments below.
As already noted over on “The Chronicles Of PiercingKen”, I was once again exploring The Book Expo (which was previously known as Book Expo America) as a member of the press. I’m an avid reader and I love exploring this event to see what is coming out based on bands and comic book characters that I enjoy. This year, I learned of a Marvel Comics panel that was happening so I sat down and listened to what some amazing authors had to say.
The assembled scribes included legendary “Goosebumps” creator R.L. Stine, Margaret Stohl, Jason Reynolds and Rainbow Rowell (pictured from left to right). Each of them was working on or had just finished titles featuring Man-Thing, Captain Marvel, Miles Morales: Spider-Man and the Runaways.
Hey my comic book loving friends. It seems that there is a new superhero team coming by way of the all-new “Champions” and the fine folks at Marvel Comics have begun to unveil these Character Posters that feature the team. What I am going to do with this notice is add any of the new images to this single post as the hectic nature of the site right now I cannot devote a single post for each of them. Let’s start with the first one and then I’ll add them in accordingly. Once done I will order them by name for ease of perusal. Enjoy.
Alright, I want to start this month’s first offering with the exclamation that I am so glad that January is over because it was a rough month for music fans. Now with February here I am pretty stoked to be discussing the new comics that are coming out with these first go rounds from Marvel Comics. Some good stuff for sure and a couple of them will get you prepared for some television and big screen presentations. There will be some variant covers to these titles with the continuing “Hip Hop” cover and some will even have a 50th Anniversary Black Panther cover variant but I didn’t have access to those for the purposes of this presentation. Let’s have a look shall we.
SPIDER-MAN #1: Miles Morales has been doing the super hero thing for a while, now, but after SECRET WARS, he’ll be a full-fledged member of the Marvel Universe. Swinging next to The Invincible Iron Man, The Mighty Thor and the All-New Captain America as a card-carrying member of the Avengers is an adventure, but it’s not all fun and games for New York City’s main Spider-MAN! What happened in the eight month gap? It all starts in SPIDER-MAN #1!
