Green Goblin Concept Art Shared For SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE
I am super stoked about Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. I think I'm a lot more pumped up about than most people, but I think it seriously looks like it's going to be an incredible Spider-Man movie. I love that Miles Morales is getting his big screen debut and that it's going to play with lots of different versions of Spider-Man in the Spider-Verse. We know that Spider-Gwen will be involved and that she'll be voiced by Hailee Steinfeld, and then there's Nicolas Cage who will be providing the voice of Spider-Man Noir. That's going to be so cool!
Anyway, thanks to EW, we have a fun piece of concept art from the film to share with you featuring Spider-Man punching a giant Green Goblin in the back of his head. When talking about the film and his character, voice actor, Shameik Moore, who plays Miles Morales says:
This power is kind of handed to [Miles] when he’s not really looking for more responsibility. That phrase — ‘with great power comes great responsibility’ — it means the same thing, but it comes from a different place with this Spider-Man.
"Everybody has a purpose and a reason and a place. I think that’s what [Miles’s] conflict is — finding his place. He’s like, 'If there’s Peter, then how do I be Spider-Man? Can you teach me? How do I do this?'"
One of the things that I love most about the movie is the unique and wild visual style. It's so different from any other animated film out there. That's all thanks to the creative mind of Phil Lord and Chris Miller. Miller says, "The idea was: Let’s make a movie that feels like you’re walking into an immersive comic book." And that's so rad! It looks like it's going to work so well! it definitely gives the character a fresh twist on the character and his story. I really like the text bubbles and the texture of the halftone dots that I've seen in the trailers.
"We were just really intrigued with the possibility of making an animated movie in a completely different way with a completely different set of characters that didn’t have to abide by the normal rules. A big franchise can either back you into safe choices or it can give you the opportunity to take huge risks. And that risk version was what was intriguing to us."
I think those risks are going to pay off in a big way. Hopefully, more and more people get excited about this movie the closer we get to it being released.
The film follows Miles as he tries to learn how to put his new powers to use — with a little guidance from Peter Parker himself. And although the two may share web-slinging abilities, they’re still radically different: Miles grew up in Brooklyn, not Queens, and he’s only 13 years old. “And he’s got both his parents alive,” Miller quips. “Which doesn’t sound like much, but that’s very unique to Spider-People.”
The older middle-aged Peter Parker in the movie will be voiced by New Girl star Jake Johnson, Liev Schreiber is playing the larger-than-life crime lord Kingpin; Hailee Steinfeld will play spunky, free-spirited Spider-Gwen; Mahershala Ali will provide the voice for Miles’ uncle Aaron; Atlanta star Brian Tyree Henry will voice Miles’ father Jefferson. Rounding out the cast is Luna Lauren Velez as Miles’ mother Rio, and Lily Tomlin will be Aunt May.
The film will be released on December 14th.
