Into the Spider-Verse, in my opinion, was probably one of the best cinematic experiences to ever exist. Not only was the animation a remarkable work of art, but the plot was one great adventure. And all this, plus a killer playlist.
The basis of Into the Spider-Verse, or for that matter, Marvel, is the fact that the existence of alternate and parallel universes is canon. One of the main factors that keeps the story going is the different portrayals of the same character; in this case, Spider Man…or Woman.
The main theme is that every detail of our universe is not the same as that of all the alternate universes. They could vary by something very miniscule – like how a certain phrase is spoken – or by something huge. I felt that this really brought out the changing nature of reality, its state of flux, through the means of alternate universes.
Okay, so, let’s do this one last time. (reference!)
We start off with this guy:
His name is Peter Parker (wow, surprise). FUN FACT: At the animation studio, to remember which character they were talking about, they called this one (SPOILER ALERT!) RIPeter, because, you know… he’s dead. Anyway, he was the original Spider-Man in this universe.
Due to certain things that may or may not involve a MASSIVE machine that opens up portals into other universes, we are introduced to our 6 Spider people.
Now, coming to the next, we have: Peter B. Parker. FUN FACT: During production, they called him Burrito Parker. He represents me. That’s it.
If those images are not proof, I don’t know what is.
Our third spider-MAN, is Spider-Noir.
He’s in black and white comic style. There seems to be wind in the basement, because his cape seems to keep flowing. Our favourite, black-and-white, comic-style, Nazi-fighting, detective-from-the-fifties, Spider Noir.
Our Fourth Spider Person, is: Gwen Stacy, AKA Spider-Woman.
