Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse Has Screened, Here’s What People Are Saying

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse isn't part of any big cinematic universe, but that doesn't mean fans aren't excited for it. And if, for some reason, you're not excited for Into the Spider-Verse, you should probably start getting excited because the first reactions to the new movie are here and they couldn't be more glowing. Erik Davis from Fandango says that if you thought you've enjoyed Spider-Man films before, you ain't seen nothing yet.

Not only is Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse a great Spider-Man movie, but I think it's the BEST Spider-Man movie. A super inventive & visually stunning action-adventure about a kid learning to be a hero from a man who forgot how to be one. It is outstanding!

While not every Spider-Man movie that's come before has been great, there have been some that have been, well, amazing, spectacular even, so to say that Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is the best of them is high praise indeed. Not to be outdone, Slashfilm's Peter Sciretta says that the animated Spider-Man adventure succeeds in being both the best animated movie of the year and the best superhero movie of the year.

Spider-man: Into The Spider-Verse is not only the best animated feature and best comic book movie this year, but one of the best movies of 2018 period. I don't think another movie does a better job of bringing a comic book to life on the big screen.

That puts Into the Spider-Verse ahead of some very well regarded films, everything from Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War to Ralph Breaks the Internet and Incredibles 2, which is also a movie that qualifies as both an animated and a superhero movie.

And the praise just keeps coming. Dani Fernandez is one of several people who seems to have come out of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse with a passion bordering on obsession. It seems that whatever you might want out of your comic book movies, this one has it.

I'm obsessed. It didnt feel like anything else. All the animation styles coming together was insane. Miles is EVERYTHING. Humor. Heart. Vulnerability. Courage. The hero we need.

Into the Spider-Verse seems to be putting a cap on what has been a solid year for animation. Both Disney and Pixar saw major releases this year, and both were well regarded, but it seems that Sony has somehow found a way to top them both, according to Mark Pacisat Nerd Reactor.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is hilarious, emotional and just so damn entertaining. Who knew that in a year when both Disney and Pixar release quality films that Spider-Verse would top them to become the best animated film of the year. It's that good.

Normally, this is the part of the roundup where I say, "while most people love this movie, there are a few people who don't agree." However, when it comes to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, I can't currently say that. As of this writing, the film is sitting at 100% on review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes and searching social media I'm not finding a single response that's even lukewarm on the movie, nevermind negative. It seems that this is a film that is being universally adored by literally everybody.

With a response like this, it's understandable why the embargo would break on the film a full two weeks before it hits theaters. However, it does make it frustrating that we now have to wait two whole weeks to see this apparently stunning product. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, which is apparently one of the best movies of the year, will be out December 14.
