It’s raining, it’s pouring; don’t let your kids stop playing.
The Spider-Man film franchise has had its fair share of ups and downs. For all its multiple story angles and movie portrayals, the fandom has been fairly kind to our favorite web-slinger. His recent (dis)appearance in a recent superhero crossover has generally been reviewed as a must-see blockbuster film. If you have not watched it, we suggest you bring a box of tissues. Yes, it is that sad/good!
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse features ‘Miles Morales‘ (voiced by Jamaican American good guy Shameik Moore), a high school kid who plays as this version of the web-head. 30 seconds into the trailer, Morales explains, “In your universe, there’s only one Spider-Man, but there’s another universe. It looks and sounds like yours, but it’s not.” Another Spider-Man shows up, and we are formally introduced to the idea that there are numerous versions who bear the ‘Spider-Man’ mantle in this universe. At the end of the trailer, we see a glimpse of a female Spider-Man dressed in a black and white costume with a hood who turns out to be Gwen Stacy. After this bit, we asked ourselves: how many Spider-Men are there?
The film features visuals straight out of a living painting, with a unique hand-drawn style that promises to excite fans of all ages. Based on this first trailer, we’d say that there’s a bit of something for everyone. We have an older hero-mentor, an intriguing plot, and a good family-friendly action. If this movie can bring happiness to the world, then darn it, we believe it can!

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is scheduled to come out on December 14, 2018.
