Late Stan Lee and the other creators of Marvel have put together a long list of superheroes who are loved and celebrated all over the world. But there has always been a special place for Spider-Man in the hearts of fans. We now have the animated spin-off Spider-Man: Into the Spider-verse, directed by Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey, and Rodney Rothman.

Remember Peter Parker, the intelligent employee from the Daily Bugle, who gets bit by a radioactive spider and inherits the abilities of spiders? Of course you do. But BUMMER - he's not the only Spider-Man!! This film follows Miles Morales, a highschool student who acquires Spidey-powers. Better yet, he's in a world that has more than just one Spider-(man/woman/animal)Person!

While Miles struggles to set himself in his new highschool, he gets the web-powers. Now of course, comes great responsibilities, right? (Hope you remember: "With great power comes great responsibilities"?). He now turns to Peter Parker of an alternate dimension, to learn how to be Spider-Man. But Peter is depressed and divorced and reluctant to be his teacher.

Enter: Spider-Gwen (Stacy), the Spider-Anime girl Peni Parker, a noir Spider-Man, and Peter Porker, the Spider-Ham. (Note: All from different dimensions.) Miles, along with all our friendly neighbors and help from Aunt May, learns the tricks to survive as Spider-Man alone, and in the Spider-verse.

This is definitely one of the best representations of Spider-Man, with umpteen Spidey moments, just the way we want to see them. The film tosses the proverb 'Too Many cooks spoil the broth' and makes us yearn for more Spider-people. We have the best all of kinds being stirred in one pot, and served on a luscious platter and presented exquisitely.

The film is created in a Comic Motion Picture format and that works wonders. It is exciting to see the animated flick presented in the form of a comic. The little gimmicks add plenty of value to the fun-quotient. The computer-generated graphics and the sketches are simply superb and the editor deserves praise for putting them together magnificently.

The film runs for almost two hours and the screenplay is pacy and well packed with punches landing every few minutes (Literally and figuratively). The dialgoues are on point, and the comedy works big! An enjoyable moment would arrive right before you unsettle yourself from the previous one. Many hilarious ideas have been incorporated within the screenplay and it is done so intricately that it doesn't feel like an OD at any point.

The voice-over artists have done a fantastic job, as they bring the animated characters to life. There are quite a few surprises that pop up at regular intervals and keep you engrossed.

Conceptually, this had an equal chance to spiral right down to the dust. But choosing this dare and making the most out of it is the most commendable part as it has turned out to be a sure-shot winner.

Watch out for the late Stan Lee's animated cameo as it is sure to fill your hearts with warmth.

Verdict: Don't miss this largely entertaining Spider-world that keeps surprising you!
