Five years after the successful “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse,” film that won the Oscar in the animation category in 2019, Sony Pictures lavishes itself with this installment that maintains a vindictive aspect and adds even greater depth on the aesthetic level.
So much so that the specialized press has already dubbed it the best animated film so far this year and does not rule out its candidacy for the next edition of the Academy Awards in Hollywood.
They are not the only ones convinced of their potential because Tom Holland himself, one of the Spider-Man interpreters who has most captivated the general public, He has also publicly defined it as the “best version” of Spider-Man ever created.
For many, the great added value of the film lies in its treatment of inclusion and diversity without the need to add forced stereotypes, which makes a plot practically detached from old nostalgia for superhero movies even more credible.
Likewise, another of the great concerns of the directors of this film -Joaquim dos Santos, Kemp Powers and Justin K. Thompson- was to take maximum care of the technical invoice of the work, combining a story never seen before with surprising animation.
The story once again focuses on the Afro-Latino spider-man Miles Morales (voiced by Shameik Moore) after meeting Gwen Stacy (Hailee Steinfeld) and being catapulted into the versatility of the multiverse.
There, the hero who grew up in Brooklyn will have to manage a new threat together with a team of spider-like people who dismantle the profile of the savior character.
“It is an honor to continue playing the role of an Afro-Latino Spider-Man, I have experienced it firsthand and I know the influence these films have on boys who come from humble neighborhoods like mine,” Moore explained in a previous interview with EFE. at launch.
For her part, the American actress Lauren Vélez, who plays Rio -the mother Miles Morales-, emphasized the “importance” to add diversity to the saga, but stressed that “besides all that, it is a powerful story with many possibilities” that encourages the narrative arc not to decay.
This work also counts the participation, among others, of Brian Tyree Henry, Issa Rae, Jake Johnson and Óscar Isaac.
The Guatemalan star gives life to Miguel O’Hara, the darkest and most serious version of the superhero, who will have to fight with Miles to change the course of his destiny.
De O’Hara, he revealed to EFE, was struck by the mystery that surrounded the character of Mexican and Irish roots, as well as the “exciting transformation” he goes through in the film.
“When we see Miguel for the first time is dark, serious and contained, but by the end of the film he is like an animal, a bit like a vampire. It was very interesting to see how the character was changing and losing control“, he explained.
Based on the comics of the Marvel franchise, the writers of “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse” were Phil Lord (“Cocaine Bear”), Christopher Miller (“The Mitchells vs The Machines”) and David Callaham (“The Expendables”).
Estimates predict that “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse” will pocket 80 million dollars this first weekend, a figure much higher than that of its predecessor film, which opened its journey in movie theaters with little more of 35 million dollars.
