Across the Spider-Verse will have new art styles
Among the many highlights of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, his artistic styles were among them. While Miles Morales (Shameik Moore), Peter B. Parker (Jake Johnson), and Gwen Stacy (Hailee Steinfeld) were traditional 3D, the other spiders had their own distinct visual styles. Peni Parker (Kimiko Glenn) was made in an anime-like art style, Spider-Man Noir (Nicholas Cage) was black and white, you get the idea. With Miles and Gwen now traveling across the multiverse for the arrival Through the Spider-Verse, it’s no surprise to hear that the sequel will expand its visual horizons.
Talk with Collider, producers Phil Lord and Chris Miller explained how each universe visited in the film will be an artistic treat in its own right. “The idea that we would go to different dimensions really opened up an artistic opportunity for each world to have its own unique art style,” Miller said. “and to give the impression that each dimension was drawn by the hand of a different artist.” You can see a bit of that in the trailer itself as Miles and Miguel O’Hara (Oscar Isaac) visual appearances change when projected from a colorful 2D world to a vibrant 3D sci-fi setting.
The first one spider worms The film was incredibly ambitious just by having six spiders of different art styles, and the sequel attempting to go further than that is what excites Lord and Miller about the industry. Quoting the two On the other side and the recent The Mitchells vs. the Machines as an example, Lord talked about how they want to “push the animation in directions it hasn’t gone yet”, echoing the duo’s previous statements that they wouldn’t simply rely on their laurels. In November, the pair teased that each universe would feel “radically different” from every other, and that it would “make the first movie quaint”.
Apart from O’Hara, the Spider-Man of 2099, the other Spider to be confirmed is that of Issa Rae spider woman. It will be interesting to see what other spiders show up for the sequel and what art styles they bring with them. Hope the japanese spider man happens to make an appearance at some point.
Spider-Man: Through the Spider-Verse – Part One will be released on October 7.
