Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse was praised for its diverse casting, particularly for creating the first black Spider-Man; the story revolves around nerdy New York teen Miles Morales, who finds that he is one of many Spider-Mans in multiple universes.
The Get Down‘s Shameik Moore voiced Miles, Jake Johnson starred as Peter B. Parker and Hailee Steinfeld played Gwen Stacy.
“I saw a cartoon a few years where Miles Morales made an appearance, and I was like, he looks just like me, and I was very surprised that he was black,” Moore told Entertainment Tonight.
“My co-star on Dope had given me a journal, and we were trying to will our success into existence. So, I was like, ‘I need to write this down.’ And I wrote, ‘I am Miles Morales. I am Spider-Man,'” Moore told the outlet.
The film is also nominated for a Critic’s Choice Award.
The 76th Golden Globe Awards, hosted by Killing Eve‘s Sandra Oh and Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s Andy Samberg, is airing on NBC.
