With it’s very recent Golden Globes win for Best Animated Motion Picture of 2019, the film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse has garnered wide public attention as the newest addition to the long list of Marvel films. This time, the Spiderman mythos has braved the odds of bringing an animated Marvel superhero to the big screen.
The story is about Miles Morales, your typical teenager who – surprise, surprise – got bitten by a radioactive spider and started developing some unworldly abilities. Struggling to live up to his parents’ expectations, gets bullied in school – typical teen fiasco. A throng of villains on his wake, sophisticated technology and machinery that is too advanced for his age – typical Spider-Man cliché. Then there was Gwen Stacy and the other Spider People from other universes.
It’s a perfect mix of ‘this is interesting’ and ‘haven’t we seen this before’. Fans have mixed reactions on this new Marvel installation and say it has a feeble plot for both Miles Morales and the villains that grace us in this film.
So are we up for another Spider-Man? Hmm. We’re good. Watch this cool clip from Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse here:
