Why the Spanish Dialogue in 'Spider-Verse' Doesn't Have Subtitles
"While watching the new animated feature Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse – featuring Miles Morales’ big screen debut as the arachnid superhero – it’s reassuring to notice the subtle, yet transcendent details through which the creators ensured both parts of his cultural identity are present.

Miles (voiced by Shameik Moore), an Afro-Latino teen who lives in Brooklyn and first appeared in Marvel’s comics back in 2011, is the son of a Puerto Rican mother and an African-American father. The protagonist’s significance – when it comes to representation – cannot be overstated, making the fact that he and his mother (Rio Morales who’s voiced by Nuyorican actress Luna Lauren Velez) speak Spanish throughout the action-packed narrative truly momentous.

Although brief, the Spanish phrases and words we hear connote the genuine colloquialisms that arise in bilingual homes as opposed to the artificiality that sometimes peppers US-produced movies and feels like the result of lines being fed through Google Translate. It might come as a surprise for some that Phil Lord, known for writing and directing The Lego Movie and 21 Jump Street with his close collaborator Christopher Miller, was not only one of the main scribes and a producer on Spider-Verse, but also the person in charge of the Spanish-language dialogue.

“I grew up in a bilingual household in the bilingual city of Miami where you hear Spanish all over the place, and it’s not particularly remarkable,” he told Remezcla at the film’s premiere in Los Angeles. Lord’s mother is from Cuba and his father is from the States. As part of a Cuban-American family, the filmmaker empathized with Miles’ duality: “I certainly understand what it’s like to feel like you’re half one thing and half something else,” he noted.


Despite the massive success of Pixar’s Coco, including Spanish-language dialogue in a major studio’s animated release is still rare – doing so without adding subtitles, even for some of the longer lines, is outright daring. “It was important for us to hear Spanish and not necessarily have it subtitled,” said Lord. “It’s just part of the fabric of Miles’ community and family life.”

For Luna Lauren Velez, whose character speaks mostly in Spanish to Miles, Lord and the directors’ decision to not translate her text in any way helped validate the Latino experience on screen. “That was really bold, because if you use subtitles all of a sudden we are outside, and we are not part of this world anymore. It was brilliant that they just allowed for it to exist,” she told Remezcla. Her role as Rio Morales also benefited from the production’s adherence to specificity in the source material, she is not portrayed as just generically Latina but as a Puerto Rican woman from Brooklyn.

With the help of a dialect coach, Velez and Lord were also partially responsible for getting Shameik Moore (who has roots in Jamaica) to learn the handful of Spanish-language expressions Miles uses during the opening sequence were he walks around his neighborhood. “[Luna] has been getting on me! I need to go to Puerto Rico, and really learn Spanish for real,” Moore candidly told Remezcla on the red carpet.

Aside from Rio and Miles, the only other Spanish-speaking character is a villain named Scorpion. The insect-like bad guy who speaks only in Spanish is voiced by famed Mexican performer Joaquín Cosio. “He is an actor from Mexico City who was using slang that we had to look up because we didn’t understand it! I had never heard some of the words he used,” explained Lord.

For Lord, having different Spanish accents represented is one of the parts of Into the Spider-Verse he’s the most proud of. He wanted to make sure Miles and Rio didn’t sound alike to indicate how language changes through different generations. Being himself the child of a Cuban immigrant, the parallels were very direct. “Miles is second-generation, so he speaks different than his mother.”

Velez, who like Miles is born in New York, identifies with what it’s like to communicate in both tongues. “Growing my parents spoke to us in Spanish and we responded in English. Now this happens with my nieces and nephews,” she said. “You want to make sure kids remember their culture and where they come from.” In playing Rio, she thought of her mother who instilled in her not only the language but appreciation for her Latinidad.

Clearly, casting Velez was essential to upholding the diversity and authenticity embedded into Miles Morales’ heroic adventure since not doing so would have been a disservice to an iteration of an iconic figure that is so meaningful for many. “If Spider-Man’s Puerto Rican mom had been played by somebody who isn’t Latino I’d have a problem with that,” Velez stated emphatically."

No Dating Here! by lamujerarana
Johnny has no idea what Reed, Ben, and Sue keep going on about. He doesn't have feelings for Spidey at all. He doesn't even know what the guy looks like. And he definitely would never date him.

Or, what starts off as everyone wrongly thinking Johnny's dating Spidey eventually leads to Johnny actually dating Spidey but pretending he isn't because he doesn't want to give his family the satisfaction of knowing they were right.


“You really aren’t going to admit that you’re dating him, are you?” Sue says incredulously. She taps her finger against that very incriminating photo in the tabloid. “You’re kissing him, baby brother, right here.”

“Kissing? Spidey? Me? I would never,” Johnny scoffs, right as he finishes making a date to meet Spidey later that night. “Not in a million years. I am way out of his league. I’m so far above him he can’t even see me.”

Spidey’s going to see plenty of Johnny later tonight, but Sue doesn’t need to know anything about that.

Spidey of the Nine-Nine by ciaconnaa
“So theoretically,” Peter’s eyes flicker over to their waitress. Miss Indigo with the green hair. “You could cuff our waitress.”

“If she were to come over and hit me over the head with that scalding coffee pot then yes, absolutely.” Jake pauses, clearly thinking over the scenario. “Kinda wish she would. Bet it would be worth it.” He pauses again, shaking his head. “No, no. That’ll hurt.” Another pause. Then a wide grin. “Nah, it’d be worth it!”


Spider-Man joins in on the Nine-Nine's game of Cluedo Catch while simultaneously trying not to give away his identity to Michelle's Uncle Jake. The whole thing is absolutely stressing her out.

My father's son by SparrowFlight246
When a mission goes wrong, Tony donates blood to Peter, because he can spare a pint and the stabbed kid quite obviously needs it more than he does.

It turns out they have more in common than just type A positive blood. Tony finds himself desperately trying to remember where he was, what he was doing, (who he was doing) sixteen, seventeen years ago.

Suddenly, he knows why Peter has always looked so familiar to him.

we leave through the fire by justanotherblond
They called the soldier into a training room where he saw his son hanging upside down on the ceiling.

“Hi Papa!” He cheered, waving with a big smile even though the soldier never gave one back.

“Look, Soldat, your son is a miracle,” an agent cackled, yellow teeth shining in the fluorescent lights, “crawling the walls like a little spider!”


The soldier doesn’t remember his son’s birth or how he came to be. He doesn’t remember bedding a woman and watching her belly swell, but they said the boy was his. He does know that he will protect and teach the boy within the confines of their cell walls. Even when the handlers berate him. Even when the good guys take him away

Gwen snorted. “You and Miles would get along-” A smile appeared on her face, growing wider. “You wanna go on a trip?”

“A multi-dimensional trip.”

“The only fun kind,” she agreed. Gwen turned to him, her smile large and coaxing. “It’ll be great. I’ll get you back here as soon as you want – but it could be fun! Meet Miles, maybe another Peter if we have time.”

Peter really wanted to go to another universe, let’s be clear. But he a) had homework, b) didn’t need his brain to melt out of his ears, and c) had a dinner to get to in three hours.

He totally ended up going to another universe.

When In Doubt, Blame Spider-Man by ambivalentlangst
Hi! Sorry about the toaster—Spidey emergency. Pinky promise I’ll get you a new one. On that note, how much pull do you have in New York’s group homes? Asking for a friend.

In the way of a signature, the kid had put a smiley face with poorly sketched webbing covering it. Tony thought about calling to ask, but frankly, he’d been up for the better part of forty-eight hours. He cared more about sleep than what the hell Peter had been up to that required the thieving of kitchen appliances.

Marvel Releases Official MCU Timeline
After waiting nearly a decade for an official timeline of sorts, it appears fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe are getting their wish — an official timeline from Marvel Studios is on the way.
The soon-to-be-released Marvel: The First Ten Years sourcebook details the year each of the Marvel Cinematic Universe films takes place. The reported timeline does clear up some confusion and, in fact, does confirm the controversial title card in Spider-Man: Homecoming was inaccurate.
The current MCU movies, and the years in which they take place, are as follows:
1943-1945: Captain America: The First Avenger
2010: Iron Man
2011: Iron Man 2, The Incredible Hulk, Thor
2012: The Avengers: Iron Man 3
2013: Thor: The Dark World
2014: Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
2015: Avengers: Age of Ultron, Ant-Man
2016: Captain America: Civil War, Spider-Man: Homecoming
2016-2017: Doctor Strange
2017: Black Panther, Thor Ragnarok, Avengers: Infinity War
The first thing fans will notice is the complete absence of any Marvel Cinematic Universe shows from the timeline, even when shows like Agents of SHIELD reference the events of Avengers: Infinity War in the closing episode of season five.

MCU Timeline: Watch every Marvel movie and show in the perfect order - CNET
Every MCU property currently airing or announced -- and the absolute ideal order for watching them -- so you can catch up before 2019's big changes.
You've probably seen most of Marvel's films, but what about the TV shows? 
If you're like me, that is to say a continuity junkie, timelines are very important to you -- but timelines in the world of comics and movies can be more than a little confusing. 
Editors' note, Nov. 19, 2018: This week, Marvel has unveiled its own "official" timeline of MCU films. It's interesting, but mostly we think it just proves what we started almost 5 years ago. (Keep in mind we also slot in the TV shows, hence why ours is a beast.)
We've created a newsletter based around all things Marvel for which you can sign-up at this link!
As we get closer to "Captain Marvel" and "Avengers 4," we'll update the timeline once again in 2019 so stay tuned for that. And if you're looking to stream some MCU movies, we can help. Think you've found a mistake? Let us know in the comments!
So to either help you fill in the gaps before "Avengers: Infinity War," to (or after that Avengers post-credit scene) just watch all the shows for fun, or even merely try to impress your friends, we've created a timeline of Marvel's Phase 1, 2, 3, 4 (and maybe beyond tbh) properties in the perfect viewing order.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe, as it's called, also sometimes includes connected properties such as movie tie-in comics or shorts. Here we've left out smaller properties and stuck to the big two: films in red, shows in black.
