Back in 2018, we met a new Spider-Man on the big screen: Miles Morales, a 13 year old biracial, super hero. He broke a lot of barriers, and some of the major barriers was that he was the first animated Spider-Man to be made into a feature film, the Spider-Man to feature multiple versions of other Spider-Man, and the first Spider-Man of color.
This was a big deal for the comic book world being that Miles was a very new Spider-Man and they already were giving him a BIG screen movie. The movie was also a tribute to the memories of the creators of Spider-Man, Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, who both died in 2018.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse was theatrically released in the United States on December 14. The film grossed $375.5 million worldwide against a $90 million budget. It received widespread praise from critics, for its animation, characters, story, and voice acting.
The film won Best Animated Feature at the 91st Academy Awards, being the first non-Disney/Pixar film to win the award since Rango (2011), as well as the first non-Disney/Pixar film since Happy Feet (2006) to win when a Disney and Pixar film was also in contention and was just as successful at the 76th Golden Globe Awards, and the 46th Annie Awards. Now, Marvel has released a new trailer today for SPIDER-MAN: ACROSS THE SPIDER-VERSE.
The movie is to release June 2nd, 2023.
