ComicBook.com's latest Quarantine Watch Party kicked off tonight with a jump in to the animated realm with a unified viewing of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse around the world. We were joined during the event by co-directors Peter Ramsey, Bob Persichetti, and Rodney Rothman, producers Chris Miller and Phil Lord, and star Shameik Moore who live-tweeted the entire film with us revealing new details about the production, hidden secrets within the movie itself, teases for what is to come in the future, and rules they had for crafting the film. We've collected the best reveals from the creative team behind the movie for your viewing below!
The past month has been loaded with special guests for Quarantine Watch Party events. The casts and directors of films including Avengers: Infinity War, Avengers: Endgame (both of which came with epic MCU reveals), Guardians of the Galaxy, Guardians Vol. 2, Doctor Strange, Bloodshot, Birds of Prey, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Deadpool, and more have participated, showing off awesome behind-the-scenes looks (especially in the case of Shazam!) and offering plenty of exclusive filmmaker details (like the insights from the brilliant mind of Derrickson). Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy came with now only some fun reveals about the 2014 movie, along with its sequel, while offering up teases of Guardians Vol. 3 but also created a worldwide Twitter trend.
Leopardon is coming....
Shameik Moore for live-action Miles?
This would be a dream come true, but I’ll probably be to old for this by the time they are ready https://t.co/8eGmAt0Pea— Shameik Moore (@shameikmoore) May 7, 2020
If it was later on in his life I’d 100 percent do it justice https://t.co/UMith3hHol— Shameik Moore (@shameikmoore) May 7, 2020
Coffee shop names
Just checked the first pitches -- some were Hygge, Crema Slow Brew, Fikka Slow Brew, Prétentieux, Accogliente, Crème De la Crème Coffee, L'intégrité ... we couldn't use many cause they ALREADY EXISTED. We got the right one. #QuarantineWatchParty #SpiderVerse https://t.co/W4yRdUKnkS— rodneyrothman (@rodneyrothman) May 7, 2020

The unseen post-credit scene
True story: My 4-year-old was really upset Peter B. Parker never got to eat a bagel and he made me storyboard a post-credits scene where he got to eat one at home, it's in my sons room and it really should'vee been in the damn movie #SpiderVerse #QuarantineWatchParty— rodneyrothman (@rodneyrothman) May 7, 2020

Post-credits are sneaky
post credit sequences are a sneaky way to make people watch the credits and pay tribute to all these people who spend their lives making this incredible work which we too often take for granted. These folks are world class at what they do. #SpiderVerse #QuarantineWatchParty— Phil Lord is staying home (@philiplord) May 7, 2020
