Tuesday, February 19th, 2019 at 3:00 pm
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse brought in a variety of animation styles into one film. The traditional CG animation, a purely black and white noir character, and an anime character. But if there was one that truly brought some personality to the film, it’s the wacky Looney Tunes take on the webslinger called Spider-Ham. And he’s exactly as you would picture him: a bipedal pig with the same powers as Spider-Man, with all of his action reminiscent of Looney Tunes.
Now with the film arriving on home video, we are getting a sneak preview of the bonus features that will be available on the Blu-ray, 4K, and digital releases. Check out what kind of bonus features you will be able to see, plus preview videos for the “Caught In A Ham” special animated short and “Embracing Imperfection” below.
Grossing over $350 million worldwide, and collecting quite a few awards including an Oscar nomination for Best Animated Feature, the Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse home video release will be chock full of bonus features that celebrate everything we’ve come to know and love about the webslinger. Including the more looney side of him.
Spider-Ham (voiced by John Mulaney) will have his own special feature that sees him run one of his nemesis, Crayfin the Bunter – a play on Kraven the Hunter. In this preview, Spider-Ham justifies his love of eating hot dogs – a food that is made of pork or beef trimmings. Though he says it’s made out of beef, he gives a wink and a nod to tell us that he is lying and that nothing will stop him from consuming his favorite meal. That is, until he swings right into a villains lair, where Crayfin has strapped him down to a James Bond-esque trap with a laser about to cut through him. Will he survive to eat his hot dog? that remains to be seen.
