New photos are on the way! The suit will pull a lot from Sara Pichelli’s work and Olivier Coipel’s work on Spider-Verse with a slight cinematic approach. Marvel Entertainment announced that May’s hero of the month is Miles Morales so I’ll be posting pics in light of that. It’s been a labor of love but I will do my best not to disappoint! After these photos are finished, I’ll be upgrading it even further for NYCC! :) My suit was originally made by my friends Jesse Covington and Sasha Williams, I’m now taking the time to upgrade it and add more life to it. As always I’ll keep you informed.
Reports have just come in that studios, Marvel and Sony have narrowed their final list of possible Spider-Man directors to just six candidates.The names on this list are, Jonathan Levine (50/50), Ted Melfi (St. Vincent), Jason Moore (Pitch Perfect) John Fracis Daley & Jonathan M. Goldstein, and Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite). Although, this list doesn’t appear to be complete, meaning that it is possible that a few other directors could still remain in Marvel and Sony’s sights.
Peter Parker was the nerdy and awkward teen outcast who got to be a superhero. This was relatable to comic book readers (and later cartoon viewers) who self identified as outsiders and who didn’t see themselves in the other larger than life superheroes like Captain America. Parker might have worked in the 1960s and the decades that followed but in 2015, it’s hard to see a cisgendered, straight white guy as a visible outcast. Stories and characters need to evolve which is why we got an African-American Annie as opposed to the red-head we all know. The red-headed Annie no longer makes sense for the story that needed to be told TODAY, when a black girl is more likely to embody who Annie is in relation to the society that surrounds her.
“My name is Miles Morales… And I’M Spider-Man.”
In celebration of the animated release, here are some SPIDEY pics. Suit is being upgraded for the next NYCC and upcoming Secret Wars events! New photos coming soon!
