Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Venom

Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse was released over the weekend and is already being regarded by many as one of the best comic-book movies of all time. With a 97% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, critics are even saying that it is the best Spider-Man film yet, which is a pretty bold thing to say when you consider the six films that came before it. Spidey isn’t the only web-slinger making waves in the news recently.

Last month, Venom reportedly brought in a whopping $822 million worldwide at the box office. It has now surpassed Wonder Woman and even Spider-Man: Homecoming, despite being panned by critics. Sadly, there are no current plans to have Spider-Man and his anti-hero counterpart cross paths anytime soon, but that hasn’t stop fans from dreaming.

Miles Morales voice actor Shameik Moore recently said in an interview that he would like to portray the character in the MCU, and he would also love to square off with Tom Hardy.

“I definitely want to be the live-action Miles Morales,” Moore said. “I understand that he’s a young kid, but hopefully, you know, they can play with time and put me in there. I would love to be fighting Venom as Miles, with Tom Hardy. You know what I mean? That would be great. I would love to play on screen with my favorite actor out right now.”

Venom and Miles are no strangers to each other since the two have tangled in the past. Even the Venom series that was released earlier this year had Mile Morales playing a major role in Venom’s comic book.

Moore believes that there is a possibility that the crossover could happen, considering that the there was an extended preview for Into The Spider-Verse in the end credits for Venom.

“At the end of the movie they show our clip, ‘Into the Spider-Verse,’ at the end of the Venom. I think that’s a seed. It just has to be. I look like Mile Morales. All I have to do is cut my hair so let’s make it happen.”

Would you like to see a live-action Mile Morales go toe to toe with Tom Hardy, or should Tom Holland be the one to get the first crack at him?

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse is the number one film at the box office this weekend, bringing in $35.4 million during its opening weekend. The film now has the title of highest opening for an animated feature in the month of December, beating out Illumination Studios’ Sing. Many are already calling the film the best Spider-Man movie and the best comic book film of all time.

Of course, none of this would be possible if it were not for the artists and writers who first brought these characters to life on the pages of a comic book. Recently, Miles Morales creator Brian Michael Bendis (can you spot his Easter egg in the film?) and Spider-Gwen co-creator Jason Latour talked about seeing their characters in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and the reaction it has received from fans.

Latour called watching the film in theaters an “out-of-body experience, very humbling” and is a highlight of his life. “Gwen is one of the closest [characters] to me personality-wise. I couldn’t help but filter her problems through my own life.”

“These guys (Phil Lord and Chris Miller) and everyone that worked with them were just the best,” Latour added. “I went up to Sony Animation in L.A. after Comic-Con this summer and screened the film before it was done. Even at about 60 percent finished — and what was there was so close to great already — it was hard to believe it could survive the concerns of Hollywood and come out even better. I gave them five or six actionable notes, mostly on Gwen’s character and her relationships, and a few dumb jokes and insights into Spider-Ham (who we all bonded pretty deeply over). And man, I was so thrilled and surprised to see my input was not only received but that a lot of it was actually incorporated into the movie. It’s just such a rare thing to be asked into the process— let alone listened to.”

Bendis recently tweeted out that he would like for everyone to stop messaging him about the “Jordan 1 “Origin-Story.”

“To my friends and family, I’m not turtle from entourage, I can’t get you shoes. Stop asking :)”

Aside from shoe request, Bendis has been pretty active on Twitter this week interacting and responding to fans feedback from the movie.

“So many of you have championed Miles Morales since the day we introduced him. You spread the word and lifted him, and us, up. and here we are! I hope each of you takes a moment to enjoy your part in this.

I love you all! Have fun. I’ll be sharing some thoughts at the end of the weekend. (brace yourselves, it’s going to get mushy.”

Jump Force has a new combatant joining the game, and his name is Asta from the Black Clover series. He is an orphan from the small town of Hage. In this world, magic rules everything, and the strength of a person’s magic with the help of a grimoire will dictate their place in the world. Astra is in a tough position since he is one of the few people who are devoid of any magic inside him. And because of this, he is seen as a lowly person. But that doesn’t stop him from aiming for the top and bringing fame to his small town, and maybe marrying the love of his life, Sister Lily.

Even with his lack of magic, Astra manages to get a grimoire and two weapons from it, Deamon Slaying sword and the Demon Sealing sword. Both weapons will be available for use along with his other form, Black Asta. Who do you think will join the fight next? We’re hoping to see some folks from Boku no Hero Academia (My Hero Academia).

“As girls, we were never brave enough to try skateboarding. We’re excited to work on a project that could potentially get other girls to feel inspired enough to face their fears, fight the patriarchy and start shredding. Women are changing the game across industries all over this country. Why not add skateboarding to that list?” said Arfin and Moselle.

Set several centuries in the future, the abandoned Alita (Rosa Salazar) is found in the scrapyard of Iron City by Ido (Christoph Waltz), a compassionate cyber-doctor who takes the unconscious cyborg Alita to his clinic. When Alita awakens she has no memory of who she is, nor does she have any recognition of the world she finds herself in.

Everything is new to Alita, every experience a first. As she learns to navigate her new life and the treacherous streets of Iron City, Ido tries to shield Alita from her mysterious past while her street-smart new friend, Hugo (Keean Johnson), offers instead to help trigger her memories. A growing affection develops between the two until deadly forces come after Alita and threaten her newfound relationships. It is then that Alita discovers she has extraordinary fighting abilities that could be used to save the friends and family she’s grown to love. Determined to uncover the truth behind her origin, Alita sets out on a journey that will lead her to take on the injustices of this dark, corrupt world, and discover that one young woman can change the world in which she lives.
