The best thing about Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is that it’s an irreverent love letter that dares to challenge and satirize the Webslinger’s mythology. By introducing Miles Morales (Shameik Moore) into the cinematic universe, not only did we see the Spidey persona in a whole new way, but we also got to see the social impact of representation. Now Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse puts a twist on the themes explored in the first while diving into the complex themes of individuality.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse was unlike any other Spider-Man film we’ve seen before. It was a highly dynamic cinematic experience that used a variety of animation styles and techniques to deliver something wildly psychedelic and separated itself from the rest of its animation studio rivals.
In the age where almost every studio has its exclusive streaming service, it’s almost hard to keep up which studio has the right to which content. Sometimes, the only way to have at-home marathons is to have the physical or digital copy on your own. But for those who don’t have that option, streaming is the way to go.
As if Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse didn’t already show us how expansive the multiverse is by introducing not one, but five other Spider-Man heroes helping Miles Morales (Shameik Moore) save his universe from certain doom. But now, its sequel proves that the predecessor was only the tip of the iceberg. And the latest trailer for Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse takes expanding the Spider-Verse to a whole new level.
There’s a running joke that we will never run out of superhero sequels; I, myself an Xennial elder, have lived through nine Spider-Man movie releases thus far. I’ve watched almost all nine in theaters, not even counting Spider-Man’s appearances in the Avengers films and am happily surprised to find Spider-Man treading new ground.
Listeners beware! Lots of things are getting spoiled for Spider-Man: No Way Home and Hawkeye in this episode of Hard NOC Life!

“PART ONE?!” is essentially what social media exclaimed into the ether when the official Twitter page for Into the Spider-Verse (which has since changed its username and banner) dropped a surprise clip for the upcoming sequel film Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse. The animation opens with the same ending sequence from the 2018 Oscar-winning masterpiece, with an older looking Miles Morales (Shameik Moore) and Gwen Stacy (Hailee Steinfeld) catching up after some time apart.
Keith are back Dominicon Hard NOC Life with Britney to break down the latest Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer and speculate about whether the Sinister Sixth villain in the Marvel/Sony blockbuster somehow wronged Taylor Swift. They also wonder if Andrew Garfield’s tick…tick…BOOM! press tour couldn’t have come at a worse time.
Seems like Spider-Man is going to be running into some (very familiar) visitors… from every universe. Directed by Jon Watts, Spider-Man: No Way Home stars Tom Holland, Zendaya, Benedict Cumberbatch, Jon Favreau, Jacob Batalon, and Marisa Tomei. Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal serve as producers. Tickets for the film will go on sale starting November 29, so mark your calendars!
What’s better than a new poster? A new poster AND a premiere date of the official second trailer for the highly anticipated Spider-Man: No Way Home! After sharing the new poster, it was revealed that a new trailer will be released tomorrow. The first trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home broke both the 24-hour global record for the most watched and talked about trailer ever.
Happy Disney+ Day everyone! Now I know there’s been a TON of fun news dropped today (I mean who else is excited for Sneakerella, amiright? Anyone? Okay.) But amid all the dozens of announcements the streaming platform has made today, I think it’s safe to say the ones that were the most anticipated were the Marvel Studios announcements that were made.
Ever since the first teaser trailer was released for Spider-Man: No Way Home, fans have been ready for more. Tonight, we were treated to the film’s official poster! Don’t forget— you’re definitely going to want to zoom in to catch ALL the details. The movie stars Tom Holland, Zendaya, Benedict Cumberbatch, Jon Favreau, Jacob Batalon, and Marisa Tomei.
So Venom happened. Back in 2018, the movie came out. And it was fun. Dumb, for sure. But fun enough. It was a movie that benefitted off Tom Hardy’s charisma and greater understanding of what this movie franchise really should be — a ‘00s era tongue-in-cheek, Army of Darkness-toned camp fest released in 2018. And for the most part it was a success with audiences. But for comic book movies in a post-Dark Knight, post-MCU era, I can honestly say it doesn’t register high among my list of greatest superhero films. It frankly doesn’t register at all. While I had fun with the film, to me, that first film set a relatively low bar for its own franchise. So imagine my surprise and disappointment to see that Venom: Let There Be Carnage barely even attempts to clear that bar.
Spider-Man has had some truly iconic moments in his comic book history. From Peter Parker’s initial debut as the wall-crawling webhead in Amazing Fantasy #15 in 1962, to the introduction of the vast Spider-Verse in 2014. Arguably one of his most controversial moments was during the “Clone Saga.”
In the Marvel comics, Spider-Man’s final-boss-level foe is the Sinister Six. Not the Fatal Five, not the Frightful Four, not the Seven Samurai, although those are also all things. In the Internet-breaking first trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home, there are distinct teases and reveals for at least five villains: Electro, Sandman, Lizard, Green Goblin, Doctor Octopus. Who will be the sixth adversary in the much-anticipated Spider-Man film, to be released this December from Marvel and Sony Pictures?
