Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse centres upon Brooklyn teenager Miles Morales (Shameik Moore) who possesses all the same powers as Spider-Man. Miles struggles with power and responsibility and is battling the pressures of keeping his secret identity from his parents, especially his dad who is a well-known police officer.
That’s until the original Spider-Man, Peter Parker (Jake Johnson) shows up to mentor Miles on how to become a successful web slinger. Peter is from an alternate universe known as the Spider-Verse that looks and sounds the same but is home to more than one person who wears the Spider-Man mask.
But trouble lies ahead. Miles and Peter must work together to try and defeat the Prowler (Mahershala Ali) and the Kingpin (Liev Schreiber) in order to save New York and the multiverse.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is masterminded by acclaimed writers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller who brought us The Lego Movie and 21 Jump Street. Boasting a bespoke visual style, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse has received huge praise for its filming technique which combines in-house computer animation with traditional hand-drawn comic book illustrations.
The film features a remarkable voice cast including Hailee Steinfeld (Pitch Perfect 2), Jake Johnson (Jurassic World), Liev Schreiber (X-Men Origins: Wolverine), and Mahershala Ali (Luke Cage).
