“Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” was released Dec. 14, 2018 and has since made $338.1 million in the box office. It’s a movie with new animation that captures the style of old-time comics, a great storyline, and an ending with a meaningful lesson.

In the movie, we follow a boy named Miles Morales, who has been in several Marvel comics since 2011, who lives in Brooklyn, New York. Miles is bitten by a radioactive spider and becomes a spiderman. Meanwhile, Wilson Fisk, otherwise known as Kingpin, has created a particle accelerator to access parallel universes and dimensions. Miles, along with spidermen and women have to join together to fight a huge battle against Kingpin.

Here at Bedford, we are a truly diverse community, just like the different types of spider-people. We all work together through clubs, class projects, and other activities and show Bedford and Coleytown students to be full of citizenship and kindness.

The movie carries this kind of message and it’s one popular with kids.
The movie is set to look exactly like a comic book, which both surprised and intrigued me. The thought bubbles, text, and lots of color all over the screen at various times really made it feel like reading a comic book.

Stan Lee, creator of Marvel, has recently passed and this movie is one of his last cameos. He poses as a salesman selling Spider-man merchandise in a store.
The “Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse’s” DVD is available March 19.
It has done great in the box office and I thoroughly encourage middle schoolers to watch it.
