Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018) 97% The world has seen a few different iterations of Peter Parker since 2002 s Spider-Man, including a franchise reboot in 2012 and Tom Holland s introduction as an MCU character in 2016 s Captain America: Civil War. But we ve never seen any version of Miles Morales on the big screen, and that all changes with Sony s animated film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. Shameik Moore provides the voice of Miles, a regular teen living in an alternate universe Brooklyn who is, yes, bitten by a radioactive spider and develops powers initially out of his control. Thanks to the shenanigans of local mobster Kingpin, however, Miles comes into contact with spider-people including a middle-aged Peter Parker (Jake Johnson) from parallel universes who team up with him to save the day. Critics say Into the Spider-Verse benefits from a fresh, well-told story and an impressive voice cast that includes Bryan Tyree Henry, Hailee Steinfeld, Mahershala Ali, Nicolas Cage, Lily Tomlin, and a few surprise guests. It s not only a feast for the eyes, but a fun, kinetic, heartfelt, and highly engaging treat for the whole family.
