Spider-Man: Into the Spider-verse Trailer. This is What Happens When You Can’t Stop Printing Money
The trailer for Marvel’s animated Miles Morales film showcases the kind of confidence that only money can buy.
The new trailer for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is out, and the film showcases a kind of confidence that only comes with success. The trailer shows an incredibly unique art style, a new take on a Spider-Man story, along with a total lack of hand-holding.
It’s one of the bravest trailers this author has ever seen. This is not the kind of movie that would normally be released, but Marvel’s unrelenting success has allowed for this new creation to be born.
After Ant-Man and the Wasp hits in a month or so, there’ll be about 8 months before the next MCU movie, Captain Marvel, and this animated film is releasing at an interesting time, December. With a few weeks of rest from Wreck-It Ralph 2, and no Star Wars film releasing that month, Spider-Verse is going to smash the kids film market, that is, until Mary Poppins comes out a few weeks later. DC’s Aquaman is aimed at a slightly older audience, as is Bumblebee. It’s a month that’s crowded with films, but Marvel must consider themselves confident that they can dominate.
Building a brand is tough work, but with over a decade of critically-acclaimed productions under their belt. The confidence to green-light this unique film showcases just how confident the head-honchos are. If only showed such uniqueness with their live-action films, looking at you Venom.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse may well be crap, but it doesn’t look it. The film’s mere existence is a stunning sign of confidence from the studio and from Marvel itself.
Consider this film well and truly bumped up on this writer’s most anticipated list.
