Sony Wants Patents For The Spider-Verse’s Unique Style

Sony has applied for patent protection for the animation process and technologies involved in the production of Spider-Verse.

Film critics have described the animation in Sony’s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse as unique, innovative and inventive. The thing is that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office will now discuss whether they agree with those ideas.

Deadline states that Sony has applied for patent protection for the animation process and technologies involved in the production of Spider-Verse. The film has been popular for its distinctive visual achievements, which represents vintage Marvel Comics by using Pop Art style similar to the works of Roy Lichtenstein.

You just have to admit that Spider-Verse is a state-of-the-art film with amazing bonuses like Ben-Day dots, thought balloons, panels, written sound effects and the illusion of alignment flaws in color separation.

Sony states that the innovations of the film “go beyond stylistic originality or envelope-pushing success and qualify as a distinctly new invention.”

“We had this mandate to basically challenge how animated movies are made and what they can be, from top to bottom,” one of the directors, Rodney Rothman, told Deadline. “There were large periods of time where we wondered if it would even work.”

The New York Film Critics Circle named Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse as 2018’s best-animated film. What is more, the movie won a Golden Globe nomination for the best animated feature film.
