Spider-Man: Into The SpideyVerse is steadily procuring a nice bit of buzz for itself. As the first vehicle after the unprecedented Marvel-Sony deal there's a lot riding on this one. If you're like me, you have reservations about a Sony produced Spidey flick especially in consideration of their last two duds. (The Amazing Spider-Man 1 and 2 ) and Marvel's homerun in last year's Spider-Man: Homecoming.

But even I am willing to concede that everything from the cast and crew to the latest trailer dropped by Sony looks more than promising. As it turns out I'm not alone in my anticipation. Liev Schreiber recently sat down with Collider to discuss the project, with an intense enthusiasm. Here's what the actor had to say:

"It was actually the animation team. The guys who are working on it, I saw their work and said, 'Wow! These guys are special.' And it is. It's going to be pretty special, from what I've seen so far. And I haven't seen much, but it's pretty special. They're super-talented," he said int he interview. "And just working with them in the brief time that we did on my stuff, I've been in a bunch of these different situations, and these guys have their ducks in a row. And they're collaborative. They know what they want and they're clear, they've got all their sequences and their animatics, but you come up at them with a creative idea and they shift, they do it nimbly and with great expectation."

I can stomach two seperate Spiderman continuities if they continue to make a point to not to get in each other's way. While the MCU is tackling the traditional, Earth 616 Spider-Man, Sony should cling to the either the Ultimate Universe or the tertiary characters from either canon. Rumour has it Tom Holland is set to reprise is role in the upcoming Venom standalone film, which will only do well to disturb the rigid world building established by Feige and crew.

It's a inspired bunch of guys helming Into The Spiderverse to be certain. Miles Morales is also a hard character to flub. He boasts one of the best origins in comic book history. The animation is gorgeous and at ease with Miller and Lord's frenetic tone.

Spider-Man: Into The Spiderverse hits theatres this December.
