In the past few years, Sony Pictures Entertainment has partnered with Marvel Studios and brought the marvelous world of The Amazing Spider-Man into the already developed Marvel Cinematic Universe. This collaboration marked the first time that the web-slinging hero would be portrayed on the big screen along the likes of Marvel greats such as Thor, Iron Man, and Captain America.
This led to a serious issue within Sony Pictures. With the rights to Peter Parker’s Spider-Man in Marvel’s hands, where were they going to go with their planned future for the character? Out of this confusion came the idea for an animated film focused on the new iteration of the superhero, Miles Morales.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse marks the first time that Miles Morales has been portrayed on the big screen and it has been well worth the wait. According to the official Marvel website, Morales is from the alternate reality Earth-1610. He was bitten by a genetically enhanced spider and was forced to take up the mantle of Spider-Man. You’ll have to see the film to find out the rest here.
