Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse came out on Dec. 14, earning a 97 percent score on Rotten Tomatoes and $35 million during its opening weekend.

The movie focuses around young Miles Morales, voice acted by Shameik Moore, developing his mysterious powers that lead him to meet the one and only Spider-Man. However, it takes a turn when one of Spider-Man’s foes, Kingpin, opens a portal and pulls several universes into their own.

Into the Spider-Verse goes on to introduce the other “spider-people”, first introducing Spider-Man, then Spider-Woman, Spider-Man Noir, Spider-Ham, and Peni Parker. The movie makes the retelling of each of their backstories humorous rather than seeming annoyingly repetitive.

While there are many different Spider-Man universes, they did a good job limiting themselves and selecting ones that are unique compared to each other in the film. For instance, Miles Morales finally being brought to the screen has made many fans, such as myself, very happy. He is another teen, much like Peter was, and yet again makes a connection to young fans.

The character development in the movie is something to be mentioned. Morales is thrust into a new school at the beginning of the film. He feels out of place and with his new powers kicking in, Miles is very anxiety driven. By going through the difficult tasks at hand throughout the film, we see him become a confident young hero. The alternate universe Spider-Man also has a good character development of going from scared and lazy, to level-headed and strong.

Into the Spider-Verse also has a unique animation style. The style sets it apart from other animations and makes it appear more fun.

A Marvel hero movie wouldn’t be complete without a Stan Lee cameo. With that said, make sure to keep an eye out for our fallen writer of heroes.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is a great movie to take time to see. You can go see it at AMC Showplace 16 in Rockford.

Overall, I rate the movie 10 out of 10 stars.
