Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse review

A twist on the Spidey we’ve come to know

Spider-Man:  Into the Spider-Verse review

Thought we'd reached peak Spider-Man? Think again. After umpteen versions, here’s one that embraces the most out-there bits of Spidey lore and forges something totally fresh from them.

Inevitably, those giddy Hollywood mavericks Phil Lord and Chris Miller (The Lego Movie) are involved – as co-writer and co-producer.

This time, the spotlight falls on the Miles Morales version of Spider-Man: an Afro-Latino high-schooler (voiced by Shameik Moore).

Bitten by that radioactive spider, he’s reluctantly tutored by the more jaded Peter Parker version (Jake Johnson), who’s been dropped in from a parallel dimension.

Aside from the welcome sight of an ethnically diverse superhero, we’re treated to a clutter of other Spideys, including Spider-Man Noir, the anime Peni Parker and Spider-Gwen.

All have their own animation style, packing each frame with eye-popping visuals.
