Doctor Strange Was Almost In Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

Doctor Strange Was Almost In Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse originally included a cameo by none other than Doctor Strange. The animated Spider-Man movie is set to arrive in theaters this weekend and the buzz , thus far, has been extremely positive. It should, at the very least, be enough to tide Marvel fans over until Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home arrive next year. While this is mostly a Spidey standalone (featuring several different versions of the character), it turns out, the universe was originally going to expand.

Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the duo behind The Lego Movie, are on board as producers on Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. Lord helped pen the screenplay alongside Rodney Rothman and, like most major projects in Hollywood, it went through several revisions before reaching its final form. As Lord reveals, the initial draft ended with the Sorcerer Supreme making an appearance. Here's what he had to say about it.

Review: 'Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse' is the Best Superhero Movie of 2018

Based on characters created by writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Sara Pichelli, the new Sony Pictures Animation movie, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, offers an entirely different take on Marvel's beloved web-slinging superhero, which was first introduced by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko in 1962. Produced by the filmmaking team of Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the story centers on African-American/Puerto Rican teenager Miles Morales (voiced by Shameik Moore of Dope and Netflix's "The Get Down") as he tries to fit in at the prestigious Brooklyn Visions Academy. Miles' father, Jefferson (Brian Tyree Henry of Widows and If Beale Street Could Talk), is a straight-laced police officer and his mother (Luna Lauren Velez) is a hard-working nurse — both loving parents who are proud of their son's achievements, and really want to see him succeed studying at the school for gifted students. Adjusting to a new school proves to

‘Spider-Man’ Producers Phil Lord & Christopher Miller Bring Miles Morales To Big Screen In Spectacular Style

‘Spider-Man’ Producers Phil Lord & Christopher Miller Bring Miles Morales To Big Screen In Spectacular Style
With Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, their latest animated outing, producers Phil Lord and Chris Miller took a big swing, experimenting with bold formal choices to meet great power with great responsibility. The big screen debut of Miles Morales—an Afro-Latino teenager who dons the spidey suit, within a Marvel multiverse—Spider-Man would feature an unprecedented visual presentation befitting a truly groundbreaking character. Created in 2011 by writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Sara Pichelli—and soon amassing a major fan following—Morales comes into his own in the fast-paced origin story, swinging through poignant family moments, rampant meta comedy, and various dimensions, coming face to face with a number of Spider-Men and Women, while combatting a dire threat to humanity.

An endlessly innovative duo, Lord and Miller have always sought to raise the creative bar, demonstrating that there are few limitations to what is possible, when imagination is in no short supply.

‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’ Directors on Hidden Stan Lee Cameos & Miles Morales’ “Radioactive Puberty”

If you think the world already has enough Spider-Men, you might not be ready for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. Part coming-of-age tale, part psychedelic acid trip, and all a love letter to the comic book medium, Sony's animated Marvel movie—written by Phil Lord and directed by Bob Persichetti, Rodney Rothman, and Peter Ramsey—follows Miles Morales (Shameik Moore), a Brooklynite on the cusp of a bite from the same radioactive arachnid that turned Peter Parker into Spider-Man. As Miles still juggles newfound powers with the trials of being an awkward teen, Wilson …

Review: Spider-man: Into The Spider-verse is The Best Spider-Man Film That Has Been Made

This weekend I managed to catch an early screening of Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse. This is a film that I’ve been extremely excited about seeing. I’m a huge Spider-Man fan and have been since I was a kid. I had super high expectations for this movie because everything that I’ve seen in the trailer has been incredible.

Well, I’m here to tell you that the hype is real. This movie does not disappoint. In fact, it exceeded my expectations! Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse is easily one of the best films of the year. Not only that, but in my opinion it’s the best Spider-Man film that has been made!

‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’ Is the Only Comic-Book Movie You’ll Ever Need

‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’ Is the Only Comic-Book Movie You’ll Ever Need
Anyone who’s ever cut their teeth on superhero comic-books — whether as a casual prepubescent collector or someone whose reader alter-ego skews a little closer to this — has almost assuredly gone through a Spider-Man phase. Maybe you prefer the Ditko-to-Romitas (Sr. and Jr.) era, or when he changed his suit to all black (long story); it’s possible that you pine for the days of Todd McFarlane’s Amazing run or skew toward the Ultimate reboots. You may even own several mint-condition copies of Web of Spider-Man No. 1, safely tucked away in their mylar bags.

Tobey Maguire was considered for Peter Parker role in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse co-director Rodney Rothman has revealed that Tobey Maguire – the star of Sam Raimi’s blockbuster Spider-Man trilogy – was considered for the role of the mid-life Peter Parker in Sony’s acclaimed animated feature.

“There were many thoughts about where we could put Tobey Maguire and others,” said Rothman. “I think after this film, those thoughts might have a little more traction. But before this movie, and introducing the idea of the Spider-Verse to the audience, I think everybody was afraid that it would just really confuse people. But wow, it would have been fun.”

The role of Peter Parker ultimately went to Jake Johnson for Into the Spider-Verse, but with the multiverse concept now established and a sequel to the movie in the works, it certainly wouldn’t be a surprise if the follow-up featured cameo appearances from former Spideys such as Maguire or even Andrew Garfield
