Who doesn’t love a good Spider-Man film? Peter Parker is your every day man who dons a suit to fight crime and protect his neighborhood and the city of New York. People love the story so much, Hollywood featured Peter as Spider-Man in countless tv shows, animated series, and movies. We’ve never had an animated film about Spider-Man, or one about Miles Morales – Ultimate Spider-Man.
For those of you not familiar, Miles Morales’ takes place in Marvel’s Ultimate Universe / comic book line. On that alternate Earth, Peter has been Spider-Man for a while until the Green Goblin kills him. Around this time, teenager Miles Morales is bitten by another radioactive spider. As I recall, the film touches on much of the origin story. In this film, the producers and writers have merged his origin story with this somewhat recent development about the Spider-Verse, a strange connection between all of the different Spider-People in different parallel universes.
The film is animated uniquely with much harkening back to the character’s comic book roots. The story of Miles will be unique and original and fresh to many people overly familiar with Peter’s Spider-Man. The music is also pretty good.
You should go see this movie. And stay for the one post credits scene.
