'How many Spider people are there?'
MILES MORALES – The all-new Spider-Man
Miles Morales is a young teenager and a Brooklyn native. He’s a bright kid who’s been thrust into a new school and is having a hard time adjusting to a more rigorous academic environment. But he’s having an even harder time adjusting to his entirely new and unexpected life as a Spider-Man. With the help of some surprising new friends, Miles learns to unlock the hero inside himself.
PETER B. PARKER – Miles’ reluctant mentor
He may look like Peter Parker, but he is older and the years of superhero life have taken a toll on his body. His experiences have left him world-weary and cynical. Peter never wanted to be a mentor, but training Miles Morales to be Spider-Man helps him to regain his original enthusiasm for that identity and reclaim the spirit of selflessness for which Spider-Man stands.
SPIDER-GWEN – A super-cool Spider-Woman
An intelligent and quick-witted teenager, Spider-Gwen is the Spider-Woman of her world, an excellent fighter who can swing and flip with the grace of a trained dancer. Although tough and brave when she’s fighting the bad guys, Gwen has suffered a loss in her universe that’s made her afraid to get close to people, even to an open-hearted kid like Miles. Once she learns there are others like her, she has the opportunity to let down her guard and become part of a team who have overcome their own tragedies to become the protectors of their worlds.
'How many Spider people are there?'
PENI PARKER and SP//dr – A half-Asian school girl from the future
Peni Parker is a classic anime character, a school girl from an alternative universe with a psychic link to a spider. She’s an emotional, expressive vigilante who doesn’t wear the typical Spider-Man suit – instead, she has a mechanical, robotic Spidey suit that only responds to her DNA.
SPIDER-MAN NOIR – The Spider-Man of 1933
Spider-Man Noir, a Peter Parker from another century as well as another universe, is a more hardened version of Spider-Man who fought crime during the Great Depression in 1933. Unlike most Spider-People, Spider-Man Noir is only seen in black and white and has the 1930s perspective to match, which makes it harder for him to adjust to Miles’ modern (and colourful) world.
SPIDER-HAM – The comic relief
Meet Spider-Ham, aka Peter Porker… a cartoon pig! Spider-Ham is always the first one to crack a joke, but despite behaving like the ultimate ham, he takes his job as a Spider-Hero very seriously and fights alongside the others with own his special kind of cartoon fury.

Into The Spider-Verse is something very different and very special. From the opening credits to the visual style I knew I would love this film. It moves along at a brisk pace with plenty of action but its never overwhelming or hyperactive.
All the characters are well rounded and this film has loads of heart which I wasn't expecting. Its an absolute joy from start to finish no matter what age you are. I'm 32 and cannot wait to see it again. Throw is a fresh and brilliant soundtrack and you have one of 2018s best films. I hope to see these characters again.
The film opens with a brief introduction to Peter Parker. “You all know my origin story”, he says nonchalantly as we’re shown key moments from previous films leading up to this moment. Including that particular scene in Spider-Man 3. It’s a respectful tribute to what’s come before while looking ahead at a more comic-book orientated origin story. Only, this isn’t Peter Parker’s story, its teenager Miles Morales’. After seeing this teen try to adjust to life at his new school, Miles is bitten by a radioactive spider and becomes entangled in the biggest threat Spider-Man has ever faced.
After splitting apart the fabric of time and space, multiple Spider Men from other dimensions come together to stop Kingpin and his band of villains before they destroy the universe. While this all sounds very familiar, the main crux of the story sees Miles become the hero he was always destined to be while learning the greatest lesson of all. With great power…well, you know the rest. From here, Miles learns to harness his powers and becomes the new Spider-Man, filling those large boots left by Peter Parker.
While the story itself isn’t wholly original, where Spider-Man: Into The Spiderverse excels is its execution and flair. Foreshadowing, comic book references, consistent characterisation and more easter eggs than you could ever dream of are all here in one of the best comic book movies ever made. While this may sound like a bold statement given what we’ve seen before, Spiderverse feels like a true comic book story brought to life.
Some of this is thanks to the general aesthetic of the film that’s unlike anything else out there. A mixture of hand-drawn animation, CGI and comic book frames combine to show some of the most impressive animation produced this year. Bursts of neon blend perfectly into the quirky, comic book style. Dizzying camera spins and compositional tricks help sell the effect you’re on a ride. All the while throwing little nods, references and comic book framing into the fold to help give the film a real comic book feel.
This style spills over to the other Spider Men too who, along with unique personalities, are painted with their own visual style. The noir Spider-Man is your classic black and white hero; Spider Pig uses tricks from the old school Looney Tunes animations; there’s even an anime-inspired Spider-Man for good measure. These blends of style could so easily have become a convoluted mess but it’s pulled off surprisingly well.
While there are a few inconsistencies with villains and the story is incredibly cliched, this really feels like the perfect love letter to the comics. There’s so much to like about this film that it’s hard to look at this one with too much of a critical eye. It’s not perfect but the nostalgia and visual style alone should be enough to help you look past any issues with the supporting cast who don’t have a whole lot to do beyond pushing Miles into becoming a hero.
Spider-Man: Into The Spiderverse is a surprisingly compelling and competently made animation. While the supporting characters don’t quite have enough screen time to flesh out their character arcs, Miles Morales’ story is very impressive indeed. The visual style is breathtaking and some of the action feels like its been ripped right out of a comic book. This nostalgic feel to the visual design helps carry the film through some of its flaws and there’s some very cleverly placed jokes here that really help lighten the mood. It’s not perfect but when it comes to Spider-Man, Into The Spiderverse is about as close as you could come to achieving that goal.
Then the ambitious amount of character development that is spread between Miles, Peter and Gwen (the other three are utilised mainly for comedy) allows warmth and humanity to be at the core of the story. You see the natural progression of Miles as he experiences tragedy, you witness Peter wanting to repair broken bonds with MJ. The familiar yet unfamiliar environment and the newly obtained powers allows them to interact with each other, becoming better superheroes and people. It doesn't stop there though. The family life of Miles is then tested as he rapidly becomes distant from them, establishing a delicate relationship with his father and uncle. Kingpin's motives into creating a dimensional collider, although thinly developed, adds a layer of sympathy towards him. And so much more! What I'm trying to get at, is that the screenplay balances everything. It's a perfectly toned story that nails absolutely every aspect. A rare achievement for the majority of family-friendly blockbusters, whilst still catering to hardcore Marvel fans. The pop art animation is sensational. Various shots of Miles swinging between skyscrapers were breathtaking. The excessive use of vivid colours enables the comic book style to seep through the screen, almost crafting a visual comic strip. Subtitled onomatopoeia and dialogue further aids the comic aesthetic. The voice acting was decent. Whilst there were no standouts, all the actors were consistently good and gave life to the animation. Was a nice surprise hearing Cage as noir Spider-Man. My only critique, and it comes down to personal taste, is the overuse of pop music. A trend all too popular in modern animations, it may feel current now but in years to come will become exhaustingly outdated. An all original score would've been more beneficial. Suffice to say, Sony finally delivered the film that Spider-Man fans deserve. A gorgeous web of entertainment that will appeal to everyone.
