The movie seems to be even making a previously upopular character, Peter Porker, the Spectacular Spider-Ham into a hit. From the trailer, it looks like the movie will have a lot of good humor throughout it as well. It's one of the few for the holidays that I'm actually looking forward to seeing and making an effort to catch in the theater.
It's also much, much different then what any of the movie studios are doing with their live action superheroes, which I think only benefits the movie since there's actually something unique here.

I hope it's really successful at the box office, because i'd love to see more of the world they build. It really is a great movie.

I would expect that many more people know who Miles Morales or Spider Gwen are than Peter Porker.

So not well-known. But not necessarily unpopular (in terms of not being liked).

For some reason despite the positive reviews for this Iím not terribly excited about it. Iím planning to see it with some friends and itíll probably be enjoyable but I dunno. I do like a lot of the Spider-Verse characters too like Spider-Gwen and Miles Morales Spidey. I guess weíll see if my mind is changed upon seeing it.

Exactly. No unpopular at all just not as known among the regular people outside of comic book collecting.

He had a series in the 80ís? My first and only intro to Porker was in the Spiderverse storyline from several years ago. I assumed the sheer absurdity of the character would have made him popular with fans, kinda like Howard the Duck.

The tv ads sell it almost like a sketch comedy more so than a spider-man movie. It's an interesting angel but I'm not sure it's connecting with a ton of people.

The initial advertising that focused on Miles was more effective.

I think for me itís that it feels way too meta for Spider-Man. I get that itís going to be that way when you have a bunch of alternate Spider characters interacting with each other, but I donít know if I feel like that really suits the character(s). That only really works well with Deadpool if you ask me, and even with that character I get sick of it after a while. Also Iím not crazy about the animation style personally.

Don't know if he had his own series, but he would normally have the last few pages of the regular the Spider-Man comics dedicated to him. I always looked forward to that.

3 1/2 stars from one of the reviewers on rogerebert.com. I was mildly interested in this, but I think I'll have to check out a matinee.

Seeing this tonight. I noticed that I was initially going to be sitting in a small theater and when I went back to check the chart they switched it to large auditorium, so that's pretty cool.

I'm going to continue to advocate for the movie since I really want to to perform well, but I would say within the context of the movie all the different characters make a lot of sense and work extremely well together. And you see the contrast between the character you know in Peter Parker and the other Spider-Men, so I think the movie itself is self aware of you and the audiences concerns about that aspect.

It's a good mix of comic book action and storytelling while not taking the material so seriously, which I think is a nice change of pace compared to the live action movies.

He had his own series, and then was frequently in the ďWhat The...?Ē series. His funniest story to me was a parody of Kravenís Last Hunt.

His origin is... interesting... as well. But I still think he's got more visibility than SP//DR and Noir.

Spoiler:
He's not really an anthropomorphic pig, he's a spider bit by an irradiated anthropomorphic pig and transformed


My kids are really excited to see this; releasing this right after the PS4 game was brilliant in that respect. If DC ever got their act together, I'd look forward to a Captain Carrot and the Zoo Crew cartoon.

This is weird: http://www.darkhorizons.com/sony-to-...er-verse-look/

Sony Animation’s “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” is getting rave reviews for pretty much everything about it, including its unique visual look.

Now, Deadline reports that the studio has filed with the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office to get patent protection for the project’s unique animation process. A half-dozen specific animation techniques and technologies are specified and Sony may have to wait anywhere from 3-5 years to hear if the patents are granted.

The film used a process that is a blend of computer animation with hand-drawn touch-ups that’s so complicated and complex that every second in the film took a week to render.

“Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” opens in cinemas worldwide tomorrow and is currently scoring a 98% (8.9/10) on Rotten Tomatoes and a 86/100 on Metacritic.
Seems weird you can patent something like this.

A way to make sure the competition can't use similar techniques/technology, especially if specific software/shader/patch was created for it.

He first appeared in a one shot called Marvel Tails. Then two years later had a short lived series called Peter Porker, the Spectacular Spider-Ham as part of Marvel's Star Comics line.

Depends on how you want to define the term I suppose. His series didn't sell or last very long and he only made sporadic appearance over the next 30 years. So not something people were clamoring for. But this movie may change that and put him in the spotlight.

Just saw it. I generally wouldn’t be interested in something like this but it was awesome. If you’re a fan of Spider-Man I don’t know how you wouldn’t like this.

Stay through the end credits.

Was this in response to Captain Carrot?

holy god is this movie amazing. the heart, the humor, the homages to live-action films, the voice acting, the incredible writing. so smart and well-written. just enthralling! Probably one of best animated theatrical or home video release I’ve seen in longtime. The others, the Pixar’s are great and enjoyable, but of course little kid centric. This was as well, but so smartly written that it felt so much more grown up. Just great.
