As a huge Spiderman fan, I was extremely excited for this movie to happen and I genuinely believe that I was not disappointed! Oh I’m back as well!! My apologies for being quiet, but I am back and hopefully banging out some more reviews. So lets get started with this Spiderman: Into the Spiderverse review.
This was an animated movie, produced by Sony and Marvel, featuring the origin story of Miles Morales, a teenage boy who gets his very own Spider powers but its also coincides with Wilson Fisk’s plan selfish plan which not only brings other Spidermen to Miles’ universe but also threatens to complete destroy the reality all together. This animated movie was absolutely amazing!!!!!! I am a huge fan of Morales’ Spiderman and I’m also a big fan of the Spiderverse comic and this movie is able to handle and balance both this story archs really well. Considering the fact that the spiderverse aspect of the movie was shrunk down to fit within Morales’ story, it doesn’t feel rushed and ham fisted in any way! It was also brilliant to see other versions of Spiderman, including 2 Spidermen, Spider Ham, Spider Gwen, Penni Parker and Spiderman Noir. Each character had their own parts and they all felt like that they had a good amount of screen time that didn’t leave you thinking that One had more than the other.
The voice acting for this was brilliant, and I won’t spoil it by saying who voiced who but all the performances worked brilliantly. There were alot of moments that stood out. quite a few emotional beats that hit hard, but a lot of belly laughing moments that are stupendous! The best thing about this movie is that the animation for each character is brilliant and the way that it molds together, especially during the fight scenes is brilliant (I’ve said brilliant quite alot). There was a worry for Sony to mess up another Spiderman movie but I’m so glad that this movie has hit a high note and I firmly believe you need to go and see this movie!
One of the main themes that come from this movie is the idea of “Anyone can wear the mask” which was actually refreshing from the Spiderman franchise. It was also a nice reminder to me regarding the cosplay community that anyone can not only wear the mask, but anyone can be any character, any size, any age, it was brilliant to have this message in the movie, that mirrors our community that tells us, hey, you wanna be Spiderman, do it! You wanna be Wonder Woman, do the thing!
I love seeing people do the cosplays that they want to do and feel comfortable in what they want to do! As long as it does not offend, you get those costumes on and have yourself a hell of a good time! Just for the love of god, if you are gonna do a Spiderman, or a Deadpool, or cosplay where you are wearing a zentai suit…..WEAR…..A SODDING…..CUP!!!!!!! Don’t be that guy!!!!!!!!!
