Bringing this team together is sure to prove difficult, both practically and intellectually, but we hope Spider-Man 2099 has the patience for it.
The writers and producers, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, revealed how much animation ambitions they had to bring the Spider-Verse to life this time. “The first film had one animation style that dominated the film. This film has six,” Lord revealed. “So we’re taking those assets, adding everything we learned on The Mitchells Vs The Machines, and then scaling them up to meet the ambitions of the film. Which is to wow you every time you enter a new environment, and it’s for the style of the film to reflect the story, and for the images to be driven by feelings rather than some egg-headed art project. Which it is, by the way!”
“The two you saw in the teaser trailer are what we call Earth-50101, which we call ‘Mumbattan’ – it’s based on the look of an Indian comic book – and Nueva York from the world of Spider-Man 2099,” Miller added, before divulging more details. about how each universe will differ from the previous one. “It’s based on Syd Mead-style illustrations of what the future might look like. There’s also Gwen’s world, which is Earth-65. And it’s a watercolor-smudge style reminiscent of her comic book covers.”
