There have been many adaptations of Spiderman in television and film throughout the lifetime of Marvel, a publisher of American comic books and related media. Many of which share very similar stories of various Peter Parker. This time Sony Animations pushed Spiderman to never before seen heights.

Sony’s blockbuster film, Spiderman: Into the Spider-Verse, begins with Miles Morales, a middle schooler who is unhappy with his new school and new life. Miles then sneaks out of his new boarding school to go see with his uncle. While doing so, he gets bit by a radioactive spider, thus giving him spider-like abilities. He then witnesses the death of his universe’s Peter Parker, and the merging of multiple universes filled with their own “spider-people”. The movie then goes on to introduce five new spider-people, who go on a journey to balance the space-time continuum and stop Kingpin from destroying the multiverse.

This movie incredibly well-made with over-top-animation. Sony Animation Studios merged both 3D animation and comic book styling into a zany thrill ride like nothing seen before. Wall Street Journal gave the film 100/100 on Metacritic,and called it, “animation better than life”. Rolling Stones review called it, “The greatest spidey movie of all time,” and gave it a 90/100.

Overall, Spiderman: Into the Spider-Verse was fast-paced, funny, stunning, and an all around good time that many fans of the franchise will enjoy.
