Things We Saw Today: Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Sequel Swings Into Production
In one piece of good news when it comes to upcoming films, the Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse sequel is officially getting production underway, as Nick Kondo, an animator on the project, recently tweeted, “First day on the job!”

Into the Spider-Verse has stuck with me since the moment I saw it, and while I’m super glad it will have a sequel, even if it didn’t, that movie was so visually perfect it could stand on its own. Most of the voice cast is expected to return (hopefully Shameik Moore will have opened a book by then), and I’m looking forward to getting more Miles onscreen in some way—at least until one of these two live-action studios decide to give us an Afro-Latino dark-skinned leading man for the role, as we deserve.
As we wait, let’s just revisit how beautiful this movie is:

Wizards of the Coast purports to be inclusive and diverse when in reality they have a long history of racially discriminatory behavior, avoiding accountability through a culture of secrecy and fear.

Many “influencers” have been sharing photos of themselves wearing blackface as an act of solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement.
