With Spiderman-Noir, Spider Gwen, Spider Ham and Penny Parker appear forming a multiverse, “I always find a way to come back”, exclaims Peter Parker – which ignites the recycling spirit of Marvel. Miles Morales becomes the Spider-Man of his reality and crosses paths with his counterparts from other dimensions to stop a threat to all reality. What sets apart Spiderman Into The Spider-Verse from other Spiderman or Marvel films is the rambling interconnectivity of comic book universes. Marvel Superheroes are sketched on the path of courage and determination by identifying black-and-white, it now assembles in a meta-form. With striking and bold storytelling, the comic-book animation boasts the visual narrative in more depth – terms like funky, cool and crazy constantly pop out in amusing manner. And the multiverse gives headstrong opportunity to present a power play of computer-graphics blended like hand-drawn animation.
Spiderman’s ‘friendly neighbourhood’ is enriched by high emotional and visual investment due to stylistic visualisation and avalanche dialogues. Stripped directly from comic-books, it sets an immersive mood for the a comic caper ride. The roots of a Superhero from comic-book bring a nostalgic value and an immediate impression. Spiderman Into The Spider-Verse notches above Spiderman: Homecoming (2017), which revived nature and mood of Spiderman-film. This is an effective framework, which comes from marvellous minds where every frame exudes in fan service. Directors Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey and Rodney Rothman challenge the responsibility with joyous spirit – although more of an experiment, but works strikingly. Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, the creative minds behind The Lego Movie (2014) and 21 Jump Street (2012), bring their unique talents to a fresh vision. Daniel Pemberton’s soundtrack is loaded with pulpy attitude matching the vast nerdy scale.
Spiderman Into The Spider-Verse is a refreshing attempt being a comic caper, visually stunning and engaging with right amount of emotions, humour and action. “With great power comes great responsibility”, the quote reflects the (responsible) masterful catering to Spiderman-verse.
