Into The Spider-Verse’ Has ‘Neighborhood’ Easter Egg
[Spoilers for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse below]
The incredibly enjoyable Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse has lots of easter eggs (spider eggs?) for comics fans, from the intro of Spider-Ham to the post-credits scene including the voice of a hunky Star Wars star. Among the very best comes early in the movie, when Miles Morales (voiced by Shameik Moore) goes to visit his Uncle Aaron (Mahershala Ali); as kept in mind by Comics Resource, “As the 2 joke around and expose the tight-knit bond in between them, a tv can be seen playing an episode of Neighborhood” It’s the episode from season 2, “Sociology 101,” which starts with Troy Barnes using Spider-Man pajamas, a recommendation to the then-ongoing fan project to get Donald Glover to play the friendly area web-slinger in The Fantastic Spider-Man
It didn’t work (most likely for the very best!), however Glover did appear in Spider-Man: Homecoming, and he voiced Miles Morales in Ultimate Spider-Man And now he remains in Into the Spider-Verse, sort of, which is perhaps the very best Spider-Man film yet. It’s likewise not the very first Neighborhood nod in a Marvel film: Danny Pudi (Abed) and Jim Rash (Dean Pelton) made Marvel Cinematic Universe cameos at the wish of directors Anthony and Joe Russo, and even Captain Marvel herself, Brie Larson (Rachel), was a Greendale Neighborhood University student.
Still waiting on that 2nd half of #SixSeasonsAndAMovie, btw.
