Chris Miller, co-writer of the animated Spider-Man movie starring the Miles Morales iteration of the character, is incredibly impressed with what the visuals are looking like as they come together.
Miller, who helped develop the two Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs movies alongside frequent collaborator Phil Lord, are no strangers to Sony Pictures Animation, and they’re among the key architects of the LEGO Movie universe in development at Warner Brothers. But he’s claiming that the new Spider-Man project that they’re working on is not only unlike anything they’ve ever done, it’s also completely different from other animated films:
Gotta say the visuals in the animated Miles Morales Spider-Man movie are totally groundbreaking. Gonna be unlike anything on screen before

Those who attended this year’s CinemaCon were apparently very impressed by what they saw at Sony’s presentation, with Forbes describing the visuals as looking “incredible stylized” and resembling “a cross between an Alex Ross image and a psychedelic cover image” – which sounds incredibly promising. If what’s been described is accurate to the finished product, then fans are in for a unique visual experience with this movie.
The currently-untitled animated Spider-Man movie will be released on December 14, 2018. Its cast includes Shameik Moore as Miles Morales (Spider-Man), Mahershala Ali as Aaron Davis, and Brian Tyree Henry as Jefferson Davis. Liev Schreiber has also been cast as the primary villain of the movie.
The Worst Comic Book Movie Villains Of All Time
There’s an incredibly vast range of superheroes in comics, and films have often done a spectacular job at bringing them to life. A lot of superhero films focus on the hero and those that do so often get it right. Even with changes in certain character traits, superhero films can still thrive and accurately reflect why people loved these people in the comics. While the heroes may be the stars of their respected works, villains play a major role in developing them and having their own character traits and arcs in said works is also very important.
A lot of films have made good efforts at bringing their villains to life, but many times these characters are often pushed to the side. The filmmakers sometimes change so much of the character that they don’t even feel like the ones we know from the comics. This has unfortunately happened a few too many times and it’s time to look at how poorly these characters were adapted so that these mistakes can hopefully be avoided in the future.
