The last Spiderman movie left us all in awe of young and talented Tom Holland. Even if older generations were already growing tired of yet another new actor taking on what is rightfully Tobey Maguire’s role, “Spiderman: Homecoming” was good. Its score on rotten tomatoes is even 92 percent with an audience’s score of 88 percent. That is pretty high for just another Spiderman movie.

The thing is: last month a new Spiderman movie hit theaters. This time was by far very different from the rest.

“Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” not only has more than one Spiderman related hero, but it also was animated. Yes, you read that right. No one replacing Tobey this time.

The movie starts with main character Miles Morales upset about his new school. Frustration leads him exploring with his Uncle Aaron where his life is forever changed and Miles is soon caught in a whirlwind of multiple Spidermans from different universes who are just trying to return home.

With cool details such as backgrounds having blue and red blurs to imitate or reference the ink smudges in real-life comic books and a necessary use of the classic line: “With great power comes great responsibility.”

Well, the line is sort of used. (If any of you intelligently choose to purchase a ticket or two for this movie, you’ll understand the “sort of.”)

Directed by Peter Ramsey, Robert Persichetti Jr. and Rodney Rothman, this movie scored 97 percent on rotten tomatoes. To put simply, all 116 minutes consist of high quality animation, great humor and an intriguing plot.

Speaking of the plot, classic villains and “Spiderman” and “Spiderman 2” references are made for those who just love the OG Tobey so dearly. The animated movie is for everyone.

The new take on the classic hero is legendary, iconic, Godly, you name it.
