‘Spider-Verse’ Producer Explains How 240 Characters Fit Into The Film
Sequels are bound to increase in scope, scale, and spectacle, but it still came as a surprise when it was revealed at Sony’s recent CinemaCon panel that Spider-Man: Through the Spider-Verse and follow-up Beyond the Spider-Verse would consist of no less than 240 individual characters.
The opener roped in a tiny bunch of web-slingers by comparison, which inevitably led to questions about how the creative team would find the time and space to cram so many versions of the favorite iconic comic into the space of a two-part superhero extravaganza.
Ultimately, we should temper our expectations of how important these 240 numbers will be in the history of On the other side and Beyond the Spider-Verseproducer Christopher Miller taking to Twitter to clarify the method behind the ambitious madness.
So while we shouldn’t be banking on 240 individual lines of dialogue to emanate from the vast roster set to feature as supporting players, background cameos, or easter eggs in Miles Morales’ latest journey through across the vast Marvel Multiverse, animators always have a tough job on their hands.
It has already been confirmed that Through the Spider-Verse and Beyond the Spider-Verse will have the biggest team ever assembled for an animated feature, and with more information starting to leak in regarding the sequels that were recently delayed yet again, we totally understand why.
Unfortunately, the next chapter won’t hit theaters until June 2023, but that means the hype has more than enough time to build to deafening levels before it returns to Sony’s Spider-Verse.
