Fil-Ams among animators behind dazzling ‘Spider-Verse’

LOS ANGELES, December 6 ------ “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” is this year’s dazzling cinematic surprise—it’s the best “Spider-Man” movie in a long while. This animated superhero movie is a mind-bending, thrilling mix of 2D and 3D wizardry. I will let you discover and enjoy how different Spider-“Men” from parallel dimensions get thrown together in the gritty, richly diverse world of this “Spider-Man.”

Just get ready to enjoy the ride with the main Spidey, Afro-Latino high school student Miles Morales (Shameik Moore) from Brooklyn. Along the exciting way, meet these other alternate-reality Spider-“Men”: Spider-Woman/Gwen Stacy (Fil-Am Hailee Steinfeld), anime Spider-Girl/Peni Parker (Kimiko Glenn), Spider-Man Noir (Nicolas Cage) and Spider-Ham named Peter Porker (John Mulaney).

The brilliant cast of voice talents also includes: Zoe Kravitz, Chris Pine, Mahershala Ali, Kathryn Hahn, Liev Schreiber, Oscar Isaac and Lily Tomlin. This highly inventive “Spider-Verse” comes from three directors—Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey and Rodney Rothman. The latter also wrote the screenplay with Phil Lord. Among the Filipino-American animators who lent their creative artistry to “Spider-Verse” are Louie del Carmen, Ryan Rubi and John Butiu.
