Retro Look At SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE With Shameik Moore And Cast & Crew

In an excerpt from an exclusive piece at Toonado, we take a retrospective look at the making of Sony's animated Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse with Miles Morales star Shameik Moore and others...

One of the great success stories in Sony’s Spider-Man franchise was 2018’s animated Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, which introduced moviegoers to Miles Morales from the Ultimate Spider-Man comic book by Brian Michael Bendis.

Embracing the idea of the Multiverse, it focuses on the origin and transformation of the teenaged Miles into Spider-Man as he encounters different versions of Spidey from parallel worlds and is actually mentored by Peter Parker.

“Something that makes Miles different, other than the fact he’s Afro-Latino, is the fact that he’s coming into being Spider-Man in the shadow of another Spider-Man, explains actor/singer/dancer/rapper Shameik Moore, who voices the character, in an exclusive interview.

“He’s coming into being Spider-Man with way more responsibility. When Peter became Spider-Man, he was the only one. For him, there was nobody that set a precedent for what Spider-Man needs to be in the world, or in this city, or what his duties are. And Miles is forced into something and basically overnight has something to live up to. This is basically his coming of age story. It’s like we’re introducing the world to who Miles is in the Spider-Verse. Look, the story of Spider-Man is always going to be the story of Spider-Man: You get bitten by a radioactive spider, you wear the mask and you save innocent people. This story lives up to that, but there are a lot of things — because of who Miles is — that makes it unique.

“Miles still has his parents,” he adds, “and I think that’s a big thing. Peter doesn’t have his parents, and he lost his uncle. Miles’ mom and dad love him very much and they want the best for him. So I think his perspective as a kid growing up is a little different. He still feels safe going home and knows that there’s people that love him. He’s not missing parts of his life.”
