New Spider-verse short debuts next month… more Miles Morales is always welcome UPDATED

April 3rd, 2023 by Marc Comments

Looks like we’ll be getting some more of Miles Morales’ Spider-man as Across the Spider-verse hits our screens this June… sadly, we’re not sure where we little folk can see it.

The short, called The Spider Within, will be shown in France at the Annecy International Animation Film Festival this June and so far, we’re not sure where it’ll appear for those of us who can’t get there. Although we’d bet on it hitting on the home release.

The official synopsis for the short reads: Miles Morales struggles to balance his responsibilities as a teenager, friend and student while acting as Brooklyn’s friendly neighborhood superhero. After a particularly challenging day living with these pressures, Miles experiences a panic attack that forces him to confront the manifestations of his anxiety and learn that reaching out for help can be just as brave an act as protecting his city from evil.

Tom Holland reveals he has been approached about appearing in Spider-verse sequel

That sounds like the most Spider-man story ever to Spider-man.

The Spider Within is part of Sony Pictures Animation and Sony Pictures Imageworks’ new mentorship program LENS (Leading and Empowering New Storytellers). Launched internally last year, the new program aims to provide high-potential candidates from underrepresented groups an opportunity to gain valuable leadership experience.

As part of the LENS program, four candidates will be picked from both inside and outside of their existing studios will be given creative leadership positions such as director, writer, VFX supervisor and animation supervisor. Under the guidance of program creators and producers Michelle Raimo Kouyate (“Puss In Boots,” “Silver Linings Playbook”) and David Schulenburg (“Spider-Ham: Caught in a Ham”), they will work together to produce a short animated film.

Spider-verse sequels delayed, new release dates for Sony’s Spider-man slate and, yes! an El Muerto movie is coming

It’s a good cause and we’re all for it… but can we all get that Miles Morales goodness, please?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
