First Look At Mitch Morales’ Spider-Man

Steve Porter / December 21, 2017

There hasn’t been a shortage of Peter Parkers gracing the big screen over the years – Tobey Maguire was the Spider-Man of choice in the Sam Raimi movies starting in 2002, it was rebooted with Andrew Garfield in 2014, and then replaced with Tom Holland for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

 

Now, in the latest Spider-Man film to hit the big screen, we get to see a Brooklyn teen named Miles Morales don the spider suit in this animated flick. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is vastly different from what we’re used to seeing over the past 15 years. It’s no Peter Parker origin story, but from the trailer we know it’s animated, and when it comes to action, there’s always scenes that can be beautifully visualized which distinguishes itself from its live-action counterparts. It’s almost as if the comic books have come to life.

 

 

Voicing Morales will be Shameik Moore (Dope, The Get Down) and we’ll also get the voice of Oscar-winning actor, Mahershala Ali, and Liev Schreiber (Ray Donovan) who’s going to voice an undetermined villain. Not only are the voice acting talent getting nods, their talent behind-the-scenes are worth mentioning as well.

 

If you loved movies like 21 Jump Street and The Lego Movie, you might have heard of the names of Christopher Mill and Phil Lord. Hopefully their creative talents are enough to bring their vision of a new Spider-Man Universe to the forefront and while utilizing a breathtaking new visual style that hasn’t been seen before.

 

If you’re interested, the film doesn’t actually hit theaters until sometime in late 2018.
