Spider-Man: Into the Spider Verse

This film would probably be a real delight for folks who like in-jokes and intertextuality.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider Verse (2018)

It’s also nice – after 60-odd years – to see the character expanding as other folks don the suit and save the world!

Into the Spider Verse might feel like wall-to-wall awesome action sequences but there’s enough time for character development for Miles and even Spider-Gwen, along with a few classic super-hero twists that you’ll probably see coming if you’re fairly familiar with the genre.

Aside from those moments (which I still found effective) there is a new depth, and opportunities for humour, due to the multi-verse structure. I won’t offer spoilers here, in case you’re like me and it takes you a while to see things that make a big splash upon release (I’m roughly 3 years late :D).

Although, there is a fun voice acting choice for a supporting character that I wasn’t expecting – a perfect fit, really. I want to spoil it now but really, that’s no fun at all.

Highly recommended if you like top-notch animation (on many, many levels here) and want to see a different take on Spiderman.

5 Stars
