Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse AKA: Best Spider-Man Movie Ever · 3:25am Jul 2nd, 2019

So... Into The Spider-Verse. Was it as good as everyone said? Did it live up to all the hype for me? Did they do justice to Miles Morales, AKA my second favorite Spider-Man?

The answer to all those questions is HELL! F:yay:ING! YES!

Yeah, I know. I honestly thought nothing would ever top Spider-Man: Homecoming. Except possibly Far From Home but I haven't seen it yet and probably won't until it comes out on Blu-Ray. Fortunately I managed to snag the last Blu-Ray of Into The Spider-Verse from Wal-Mart.

This movie is Amazing! It's Spectacular! It is without a doubt the Ultimate Spider-Man movie of all time (at least until it gets a sequel. PLEASE!)

Sorry, I need to curb in my fanboying. Deep breathes.

Okay, I'm good.

Into The Spider-Verse is essentially a love letter to every Spider-Man fan ranging from those who are just getting introduced to the web-slinging wonder, to those of us who first saw his debut in Amazing Fantasy #15. It's also a loving tribute to Stan Lee & Steve Ditko, his original creators. They even working in a Stan Lee cameo and have one of his quotes after the end credits.

"That person who helps others simply because it should or must be done, and because it is the right thing to do, is indeed without a doubt, a real SUPERHERO."
-Stan Lee

That is word for word the quote that's at the end of the movie. And I love it. Stan Lee would be proud.

This movie manages to not only tell the origin story for one Miles Morales, but also introduces to the big screen Spider-Gwen (Best Lady Spider), Spider-Noir (expertly voiced by Nicolas Cage), Spider-Ham (taking the title for Weirdest Spider Ever) Peni Parker and her spider-mech (and I am just waiting for her to get her own anime.) and last but not least Peter B. Parker (who is arguably the most... adult Peter Parker I've ever seen, if that makes any sense.) All of the performances are great, none of the characters overstay their welcome or come off as poorly written. My only complaint in that department, honestly, is that Miguel O'Hara, Spider-Man 2099, only shows up at post credits scene. I just think with him coming from a possible alternate future timeline it would've been funny or cool to see him try and struggle with beta tech like toasters and microwaves. But hey, the post-credit scene was pretty funny too, and it opens the door for potential spin-offs and sequels, so I'm cool with that.

That being said, the villains were a little... lacking. Honestly the only three that worked for me were the female version of Doctor Octopus (which I may or may not include in my EQGMU, though she will more than likely be portrayed by the human version of an MLP character.) Aaron Davis AKA the Prowler (who is Miles Morales's Uncle. That's gonna make Thanksgiving dinners awkward.) and Kingpin. Really, they're the only three who get good personalities and some good moments. Tombstone and Scorpion on the other hand, not so much. But they were still serviceable.

This movie is honestly a must-see for any Spider-Man fan. If for some reason you haven't seen it yet, get a copy of it on Blu-Ray or DVD and watch it. You will not be disappointed.

And yes folks, this has given me ideas for future Spider-Man fics. Just wait and see. :)

Amen dude. Like I said, Stan Lee and Steve Ditko would be proud.

I love this movie. So many iconic moments and shout outs to Spider-Man mythology. I won't lie, I always tear up a bit at Prowler's death scene when he says his final words to Miles, and the scene after wards where Spider-Ham, the comic relief character, says you can't always save everyone gets to me a bit too. Though the "Leap of Faith" scene is without a doubt the biggest highlight of the movie, and it is easy to see why the film won an Oscar.

Let's hope they make a sequel for it that's just as good, if not better.
