“Anyone can wear the mask,” Miles Morales says in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. But there was a time when that didn’t always seem entirely true. For decades, Spider-Man has been Peter Parker. Sure, there have been alternate versions, daughters from the future, and those born of Marvel’s questions of "what if," but at the end of the day, we knew that Peter Parker was Spider-Man. But when Miles Morales swung onto the scene in 2011, he changed things. This Afro-Latino boy who would become Spider-Man was a sign of our times, a reminder of the past, and a means of hope for the future. Sony’s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, which lands in theaters this weekend, is a celebration of that sentiment. Under the tutelage of Spider-Men and Spider-Women from alternate realities, Miles Morales learns to become his own Spider-Man. But that means more than just putting on a costume. Into the Spider-Verse isn’t just the next great leap in superhero movies … [Read more...] about ‘Into the Spider-Verse’ and the Importance of a Biracial Spider-Man

x The first major feature-length Marvel Comics adaptation to include the late Stan Lee was 2000’s X-Men, so by the time 2002’s Spider-Man went into production, these cameos had yet to be solidified as an established tradition, and apparently director Sam Raimi wasn’t too happy with the idea. Speaking to THR, the filmmaker recalled how producer Avi Arad pushed him into giving Lee some screen time in Peter Parker’s first cinematic outing: “I got the job for Spider-Man in 1999. And [Marvel head] Avi Arad said, ‘I want you to put Stan in the movie.’ And I was like, ‘No. I know Stan, and he can’t act.’ And Avi was, ‘I want him in the movie. We did it for X-Men, we’re doing it here.’ Now imagine you’re a minor director in England doing Macbeth and you’re told, ‘Put the writer in the play.’ It sounds absurd. ‘Fine, you want Shakespeare in the play, I’ll put Shakespeare in … [Read more...] about Spider-Man Director Didn’t Want Stan Lee To Have A Cameo In The Film

x The filmmakers of the Marvel Cinematic Universe have usually stayed away from specific dates in order to avoid potential continuity issues – it’s hard to keep track of all the different movies in the franchise, after all. Last year’s Spider-Man: Homecoming massively dropped the ball on this, however, by claiming that the wall-crawler’s solo outing took place eight years after the events of The Avengers. This drove fans crazy as it ripped a hole through the MCU’s timeline. Assuming that The Avengers is set in the year of its release, 2012, that means Homecoming takes place in 2020. Seeing as it was set just a few months after Captain America: Civil War though, that means it also had to be placed in the same year. And obviously, that can’t be possible since Civil War was said to be set eight years after the events of 2008’s Iron Man – so in 2016. In short, it just … [Read more...] about Avengers: Infinity War Director Says Spider-Man: Homecoming Time Jump Was Incorrect
