What’s being dubbed as 2018’s best animated film is swinging into cinemas tomorrow, 14 December, and with it, audiences will receive advice from the late Stan Lee—Marvel Comics’ legend known to offer entertaining and inspiring cameos in its film adaptations.
Warning, there are spoilers ahead for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.
After the death of original ‘Spider-Man Peter Parker’, Afro-Latino teenager ‘Miles Morales’ takes up the mantle and searches for an outfit to don as the new ‘Spidey’. ‘Morales’ ends up purchasing a cheap replica of the original red-and-blue ‘Spider-Man’ suit at a costume store.
When he asks if it will fit, the storeowner, voiced by Lee, responds, “It always fits, eventually.”
Even though this warm message follows with ta lighthearted moment that zooms in on a “no refunds” sign, the cameo contributes to the journey in which ‘Morales’ eventually becomes the web-spinning superhero.
For those catching the movie when it debuts on 14 December, remember to stay behind for the post-credits scene.
In related news, Sony has filed patent to shield the novel animation technology used in the film, where each frame fuses CGI with hand-drawn illustrations to form a never-before-seen visual language for the big screen.[via CNET, main image via Featureflash Photo Agency / Shutterstock.com]
