Review: I saw Into The Spider-Verse recently and I really enjoyed it. It definitely deserved the ratings that it got. Every detail, like the little dots on the screen, was a throw back to the old comic books. Also, in some of the scenes, there are these text bubbles to really express what the character was feeling. This movie focused on telling the story of all the Spider people but putting a comedic twist on it. Wilson Fisk is the main villain and I can definitely see what his goals and motivations are. He wants to open a portal between different dimensions to bring back his dead wife and son. That’s how the different Spider people came to one dimension.
Miles Morales is the main character and the Spider-Man the movie focuses on. Other Spider people were Peter Parker Spider-Man (the original), Spider-Man Noir, Spider-Gwen, Peni Parker who is an anime character, and Spider-Ham. This movie is definitely the best Spider-Man movie to ever be made. The ending scene had one of my favorite Spider-Men ever, Spider-Man 2099. We would give this movie a 9.5/10.
