The new hit animated film “Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse” has finally made its debut, and it has quickly become a sensation from both critics and audiences everywhere, even earning award accolades and nominations all around the entertainment realm. While the film is filled with your typical action and super hero adventure perfect for children and adults of all ages, it has also been brought to the attention of audiences everywhere that there is the most subtle of nods to a well known X-man — Wolverine. Although some who have seen the film may not have caught the nod toward the X-man, we are here to give the inside scoop on what exactly it was that you may have missed, as well as other details that you can see when you watch the new animated movie for yourself. With that’s said, let’s get started on our closer look at the “Spider-man: Into The Spider-Verse“ film, and all of the Marvel splendor that may be involved as well.
1. The Subtle Nod
Now, we know some of you may be thinking “I didn’t catch any sort of ‘nod’ about Wolverine while watching the movie”, and that is no surprise. Typically speaking, Easter eggs that are spread throughout many movies can be difficult to catch the first couple of times that the movies are watched, and this was no different. The Marvel mention, in this case, was super subtle, and actually came in the form of of a sound effect, if you will. It takes place around the midway point of the film, during the scene in which Prowler is in the middle of a chase in the deep depths of the subway tunnels lying beneath Brooklyn. During this chase, Prowler reveals the claws that are in his suit, and at that same moment, the sound effect called “SNIKT” is also shown on the screen for just a matter of seconds. For those that aren’t seeing the connection, the “SNIKT” sound effect is the same sound effect word that is used whenever Wolverine reveals his own claws within each of the X-men and other Marvel comic books where he is referenced. Although it is probably unlikely that any other Marvel characters will make a debut in future animated features like this one, however, we do think that adding the sound effect nod to Wolverine was a nice touch to the film itself, and even brings back a sense of nostalgia to the characters themselves.
2. Other Movie Details
While the Wolverine mention is definitely a reference that you could miss with the blink of an eye, we like how the new Spider-man animated feature has turned out overall, as does the majority of audiences everywhere. It was a production that was created and produced by Sony Productions, and it is going to be released onto home video fairly soon for your entertainment enjoyment. In fact, it has also been spilled that there is going to be a bonus feature on the home video editions in which the filmmakers themselves challenge the audience watching to find any or all of the potential Easter eggs that were sprinkled throughout the movie itself. These will, of course, consist of other subtle Marvel references, and are more than likely similar to the small mention that was the sound effect for Wolverine. Whatever the case, it sure makes for a good reason to watch the movie over and over again!
The award winning “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” has definitely made a name for itself in more ways than one, and is continuing to grab the attention of fans both young and old. This new take on the Marvel superhero is awe inspiring, and will definitely be a film that stands the test of time. The fact that it also plays with the Marvel universe inside the one story also makes it unique, and something that is fun for everyone to watch. You will be able to get this movie on dvd, Blu-Ray, 4K, and digital when it comes to all of these home video options on March 19th of this year. Are you ready to take on the challenge of finding all the Marvel Easter eggs in the film?
