If you’re excited for “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” then you will want to keep an eye on New York Comic-Con this year. Sony Pictures will give audiences an inside look at the limitless possibilities of the Spider-Verse at this year’s big event in New York City.
The big panel is expected to take place on Saturday, October 6th at 11:30 a.m., the film will be presented in association with Marvel. Earlier this summer, Sony Pictures released a teaser-trailer for the animated-film, which is expected to hit theaters later this winter. Directed by Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey, and Rodney Rothman, the animated-comedy will feature the voice-talents of Shameik Moore, Hailee Steinfeld, Mahershala Ali, Jake Johnson, Liev Schreiber, Brian Tyree Henry, Luna Lauren Velez, and Lily Tomlin.
“Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” introduces Brooklyn teen Miles Morales, and the limitless possibilities of the Spider-Verse, where more than one hero can wear the mask and protect the citizens of New York City. Sony will debut “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” against Universal Pictures’ sci-fi epic “Mortal Engines,” a film that also released a trailer this week. Those two films will have to defend their box-office winnings against “Alita: Battle Angel,” “Aquaman,” “Bumblebee,” and “Holmes & Watson” the following weekend.
It will be interesting to see how the animated-adventures of Spider-Man stack up against the live-action version of the hero at the box-office. Sony’s “Spider-Man: Homecoming” debuted in 2017 with a $117M weekend before going on to make over $334M domestically. The film, which was Sony’s first Spider-Man installment since lending the iconic hero to Marvel for “Captain America: Civil War,” made over $880M worldwide.
Sony is still planning on making two more films following the “Spider-Man: Homecoming” story line; but we will have to wait a few more weeks before the casting of those films are finalized. You still have the “Venom” movie to look forward to in the meantime.
