The second brush "Spider-Man" walks! Tons of Easter eggs help you find it all
Time Contributor | Gummies bears
Don't walk gently into that good night.
Box office and word of mouth are bursting!
"Spider-Man: Across the Universe" collected $120 million over the weekend of North American week, making it the second-highest movie to open in North America this year. With a Rotten Tomatoes score of 95%, the annual animated hit was born.
The bold setting of a hundred spiders in the same frame, the gorgeous and dazzling visual impact, and the deconstruction of the traditional heart-warming core once again prove to the audience that without setting limits for imagination, classic IPs can also be rejuvenated again and again.
So, how many unexpected details and Easter eggs are buried in this film with both feelings and novelty?
Today, Time Jun will take you to see through the "careful machine" of the production team.
"Spider-Man: Across the Universe"
(Spoiler alert: this article contains spoilers)
A hundred spiders in the same frame
Audiences who have seen the movie should be impressed by the huge Spider-Man League.
According to the official statement, the number of Spider-Men appearing in this work exceeds 240!
In contrast, Marvel's live-action version of "Three Spiders in the Same Frame" and the previous work's "Six Spiders in the Same Frame" are somewhat inadequate.
However, it is certainly impossible to see so many Spider-Men in the theater one by one, so let's introduce a few main characters first.
The male protagonist of this film is still the little black spider Miles Morales. After the finale of the previous game, he became the only Spider-Man in New York.
When the teacher mentioned that Miles' Spanish grades were only B's, his parents had a hard time accepting that because they were from Puerto Rican immigrant families, Spanish was Miles' mother tongue.
Compared to other Spider-Man, Little Black Spider has special abilities of stealth and discharge, and both skills play a key role in the film.
Today, he has learned to apply talcum powder to tights to ensure joint flexibility, and is already a spokesperson for baby powder.
The heroine is still Spider-Woman Gwen Stacy.
This game recreates her heartbreaking past of fighting Peter Parker, who became a lizardman, and finally lost her friend.
It was because of Peter's death that Gwen broke with her father, joined the Spider-Man Alliance, and traveled to other universes, leading to a series of subsequent events.
Spider-Man 2099 of Universe 928, the founder of the Spider Alliance, whose real name is Miguel O'Hara, is an Irish-Mexican geneticist from New York in 2099.
In an accident, half of the genetic code in his body was rewritten into spider genes, and he has since become the Spider-Man of the universe.
Miguel doesn't have the ability to sense and attach to objects, but the claws on his hands and feet help him climb and move on walls. In addition, he has fangs that can temporarily paralyze enemies.
Spider-Man 2099's right-hand man, but also the object of Gwen's vision - Spider-Woman, whose black image is derived from Valerie, the first black Spider-woman in history, and the experience is the same as that of white Spider-Woman Jessica Drew.
When Jessica was in her mother's belly, she was irradiated by mutated lasers containing different spider DNA characteristics, and she had the ability to mutate after birth.
She was a former agent of Hydra before abandoning the secret to join S.H.I.E.L.D. and became a member of the Avengers.
The popular punk Spider-Man Hobby Brown, from Universe 138, was originally a homeless boy selling art.
After being bitten by a radioactive spider from toxic waste, Hobby transforms into Spider-Man and smashes the Green Goblin Osborne with the electric guitar in his hand.
Indian Spider-Man Pavita Palahak, who lives in universe 50101, is a boy from a remote rural area in India.
He obtains mysterious powers from ancient shamans and awakens to become Spider-Man after witnessing his uncle being killed for his bravery.
Today, Pavita is studying in Mumbat and is one of the more optimistic of all Spider-Man.
In the previous game, he served as Miles' teacher, the Buddhist lying flat spider-man Peter B. Parker, there are also many scenes in the film.
Coming from the 616B universe, he has almost the same experience as the real history of Spider-Man, but he was blessed by divorce after a midlife crisis.
Peter later reconciled with MJ and had a daughter, Medey Parker.
The daughter inherits Peter's spider abilities, and in some universes of the comics, she inherits Peter's mantle to become Spider Girl.
The rest of the more impressive Spider-Man, including-
Byte Spider-Man, from universe 22919. She lives in a world similar to Ready Player One, often spending her spare time in games as "Byte Spider-Man" to stop cybercrimes.
Scarlet Spider-Man is the perfect clone of Spider-Man Peter Parker in the main universe of 616, and even thought he was Peter for a while.
In this work, he follows Spider-Man 2099 to the 1610 universe to capture Miles.
Spider-Man 2211, from the 9500 universe. His high-tech suit has four robotic arms that can be manipulated by his mind and looks a bit like Dr. Octopus.
Spider Cat, from Universe 999. A pest was released in the world's Manhattan, and many ordinary people gained spider abilities, including a cat.
Spider cats often have nightmares and fight pigeons named "Venom" in their dreams.
As for why the orange cat... There is a side quest in the PS game "Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales" where Miles rescues an orange cat named Spider-Man, and after completion, he can take him to a backpack to fight together.
Given the limited space, more flashing Spider-Man, I won't go into too much here.
You can leave a message in the comment area and chat with Time Jun about your favorite characters!
At the beginning of the film, the Renaissance vulture travels to the universe where Gwen is.
If the audience pays attention, they will find that his modeling design refers to the sketches of the flying machine of Leonardo da Vinci, the master of travel at the time.
The two sides fought at the Guggenheim Museum, and the museum's glass dome is precisely in the shape of a cobweb.
Starting from this, it also indicates that every scene that the audience sees next is comparable to a work of art.
There are many Spider-Man appearances in the film, how should they reflect their different origins, experiences and hearts?
The advantages of animation are reflected here -
Each universe has its own unique visual style.
Needless to say, Miles' world is typical of industrial beauty comics, and you can still see a large number of outlets in the "comic book world", and bubbles that reflect the inner thoughts or onomatopoeia of the characters.
Gwen's inner world and behavior are primarily driven by intuition and emotion, and her external world also has a strong expressionist style.
Universe 65 has become the center of the cognitive world from color and light, externalizing the inner character through the continuous change of light source and the change of cold and warm tones.
The audience can intuitively feel the emotional transformation of the characters through vision.
Spider-Man 2099 lives in the future. His city, Newwayo, is awash with neo-futuristic buildings.
The color and composition of the dungeon is a complete tribute to the originator of cyberpunk, Blade Runner.
Miguel himself in this world is also the most serious and depressed of all Spider-Man.
Bombbatten, where the Indian Spider-Man is located, can be seen as an urban hybrid of Manhattan and Mumbai.
The main creator looks for style from Indian comics in the seventies, integrates diversified Indian local culture, and does not hesitate to use a lot of abstract media to outline the outline of the world, increase the contemporary sense of visual effects, and finally have the bustling city where classical architecture and skyscrapers coexist.
Pavita's distinctive spider mask is also designed in the painted style of the Indian Tayam face.
The punk Spider-Man's style is influenced by the London rock pop of the 70s.
His ever-changing collage colours and media embody his precarious wild rock ethos – yes, he is "street art".
Of course, the most outstanding thing about this film is that it is like being bitten by an artistic spider, injecting golden venom, and arbitrarily connecting the aesthetic styles of many different eras and different techniques on the big screen, allowing them to chase, collide and merge with each other.
The ever-flowing burst of colors and lines makes Spider-Man from different worlds compete on the same stage without showing discord, and the ceiling of animation production is raised again.
As a world-renowned superhero, Spider-Man has quite a few live-action film and television adaptations in the past.
The exclusive emotional Easter eggs of old fans in this film are of course indispensable.
The most exciting Easter egg is the appearance of Toby Worm and Garfield.
When Spider-Man 2099 reminded Miles that the death of an important person is the only way to become Spider-Man, the clip of Garfield's version of Spider-Man holding Gwen's father's corpse, and Toby's version of Spider-Man holding the body of Uncle Ben, is definitely the biggest tear point of the film.
Perhaps affected by copyright issues, the Dutch version of Spider-Man has only been complained about in the lines.
Because in "Spider-Man: Homeless", he asked Doctor Strange to help solve the identity exposure crisis, and accidentally opened the door to the multiverse.
As Miles tracks Gwen to Spot's apartment, he hangs upside down on the roof in a stealth state, opposite Gwen's eyes looking back.
The shot is undoubtedly a tribute to Toby Bug's classic upside-down kiss with MJ. A similar scene also appeared in the previous game.
The villain "Spot" messes into the universe of the movie version of "Venom" next door and meets the cashier Mrs. Chen in the store.
However, the shopkeeper, Mrs. Chen, had seen all kinds of winds and waves, and when the venom was eaten in front of her, everyone had seen it, so this time the reaction was calm and unimpressed.
Among the out-of-control villains captured by the Spider-Man League, Donald Glover can be seen.
He played Alan Davis, Miles' uncle, in the Dutch version of Spider-Man.
Already wearing a purple uniform, he may appear in subsequent live-action movies as a prowler in the future.
Miles was bitten by the radiation spider of Universe 42 and became Spider-Man.
42 is also a number that is repeatedly mentioned in the anime series.
In the previous game, the number that Miles dropped off the building was 42, and in this game, his jersey number is also 42.
In Douglas Adams' novel The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, the ultimate answer to life, the universe, and anything is 42.
This meme is widely circulated around the world, and this film is clearly paying tribute to the masterpiece.
