    Thats not how the handoff from miles to peter went at all.

    Peter died in a way that wrapped up his story. A few real world months later Miles is revealed and his opening story lines are all people telling him trying to be spiderman post peter is fucked up

    Who were you responding to?

    I want to reiterate how dope Prowler's sound effects are, because, Jesus fuck, whoever is responsible for that needs to get PAID.

    I definitely did not expect coming out of a movie with Miles Morales, Nick Miller-Peter Parker, Spider-Gwen, a Nicholas Cage-Humphrey Bogart Spider-Man, and a cartoon pig for one of my main thoughts to be "Prowler tho"

    I love, love this movie and the it's easily my favorite Spidey movie and probably my favorite movie of the year and favorite superhero movie.

    Most of the amazing stuff was covered, but man, my favorite moment for sure was the "Suit up moment." The way the music and images merge is perfect and then it ties up Miles entire arc for that moment.
    Literally being a leap of faith, showing miles forcing himself off the side of the building he previously couldn't jump off, just pefect.

    I love this movie. I watched it once, then immediately watched it a second time.
    The Spiders comforting Miles after the battle at Parker house was sad, but what drove it home for me was, surprisingly, Spider-Ham's heartfelt, mournful, advice that they never will save everyone.

    the Stan Lee cameo and Peter's public funeral

    The Stan Lee cameo was perfect
    Having him be simultaneously inspirational and inspiring and also a greedy businessman was almost too meta

    Holy shit this movie

    Went to see it alone because this was going to be my last chance to see it before Christmas, and I am 100% going again with any friends that want to see it after the holiday. I want so much to talk to them about it but at the same time this is the easiest movie to not spoil because I want to see their reactions seeing it for real.

    After the Prowler reveal
    It’s sad to think about the possibility that Piner Parker may actually have survived if Miles had tried to help, if it would have led to Prowler backing off/changing sides

    oh dang, Tombstone was played by Marvin Jones III (aka Tobias Whale from Black Lightning)

    That's both good casting from a voice perspective, but also neat in general as Jones is an African-American with abinism, same as the character. That is some next-level representation.

    I can't exactly remember any line from Tombstone. I think he said something at
    aunt May's house? Before May took him out with a baseball bat.

    Speaking of the 4 way comic book layout split screen with aunt May witnessing the fight's destruction was one of the many fun visual jokes.

    not related to Tombstone, but anyway: I adore Nick Miller Spider-Man. One the one hand he could've used a bit more time focussing on his motivation/relationship mith MJ - that showed up a bit but wasn't really follwed up upn- on the other hand this is Miles's movie so adding more for Spider-Hobo would've probably distract from that.

    My least favourite part is probably the redesign they did for sp//dr and Peni. Jake Wyatt's NGE/Akira mashup world was visually more interesting I think.

    I feel like they were able to get by with minimal explanation of Schlubby-Pete's backstory by just assuming we know enough about Spider-Man to fill in the gaps. We've seen enough of how Peter Parker's life is a mess to understand how it'd finally become too much for him and he'd sort of give up

    I have a tale to tell from my theater experience
    During Gwen and Miles' goodbye, there was a little boy in the row behind me who was chanting "kiss, kiss, kiss, kiss, kiss"

    And it was actually refreshing that they didn't go that way and instead just had a young guy and young girl being friends

    but that little boy was disappointed

    It was clearly from some sort of research lab and seems like a decent hook for a future movie.

    It was from Alchemax, the lab building the accelerator
    I assume it got out and hitched a ride to the Brooklyn facility, or maybe they have a local lab for that kind of research

    Anyone notice a lot of 42 symbolism? The spider seemed to be specimen 42, when Miles beefs the jump and bounces off a cab he's framed by the 4 and the 2 from the roof... swear there was at least one other instance

    I mean, they were trespassing on Alchemax property and it had a number, so it was definitely an experiment subject

    I think we got all the explanation we need. Someone at Alchemax made it and it got out

    One thing I liked that they did not explicitly state,
    Why the uncle knew about the blank wall in the subway. Because it was on Alchemax property and he'd probably been there as Prowler.

    My actual thought on the matter is--the spider showed a glitchy effect a lot like the alt-universe spideys. I'm guessing it's from an early experiment with delving into the multiverse and 42 is the multiversal designation it was given (in a freeze-frame easter egg we could see that Alchemax uses the same numerical designation system Marvel themselves use for alternate universes)

    Spider-verse's music is also on point. Their songs are still stuck in my head, especially What's Up Danger.

    I really really love Miles' love of music as a part of his character. Because the way Spider-men move and fight carries a lot of rhythm and it's just such a natural fit for him to always be carrying a beat.

    Plus it's a good way to immediately set him apart from Peter Parker, who's too much of a dorky white kid to have good taste in music.

    It might be worth exploring, but I just assumed it was similar to the original Miles origin where it hitched a ride with his uncle Aaron. Or the area where Aaron took Miles to do his art is relatively close to the collider or something

    It's apparently a reference Bendis already did in the comic.

    According to this Vanity Fair article that was what happened in the script originaly, probably untilthey got a producer telling them to maybe not do that
    Spider-Gwen’s transformation from love interest to friend and hero first may have had something to do with another Gwen Stacy advocate, producer Christina Steinberg, joining the Spider team. “I will say that Christina kept us honest,” Lord admits. “As five boys making a movie, it was really good to have another filmmaker there going, ‘I don't think you guys want to do it like this.’”

    to be fair "explore" can also mean "flirt a bit and then decide that nah, they'd rather just be pals because not every boy/girl interaction needs to be kissing" Which, given how this film went down, I can definitely see as a route taken.
