‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’ has been in theaters for a few months, and just took home the Best Animated Feature Oscar at this past weekend’s Academy Awards! So basically, if you haven’t seen it, what are you doing with your life?
‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse,’ is now available to own on Digital HD. For those of you waiting for the Blu-ray/DVD, never fear! Sony just released the first nine minutes of the film online for free as an extended preview.
Those who have seen the film know that the storyline features several different Spider-Men and-Women throughout the multiverse. However, the main focus of the film is Miles Morales and his journey to understand his newfound powers.
In an interview about the film, producers Phil Lord and Chris Miller explained their decision to have the film focus on Miles, saying:
“At that time, Miles was easily the most exciting character in the Marvel Universe. Oddly enough, around the same time, I went to the Jeff Koons retrospective in New York City — and love it or hate it — all his art is about other people’s work. It made me like, ‘We could perhaps create a post-modern Spider-Man.’ So, we leaned into this idea of a post-modern Spider-Man in this environment that has multiple spider-people from all of the comics.”
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is available right now on Digital HD, and it swings onto the Blu-ray and DVD format on March 19, 2019. Check out the first nine minutes below!
