Spider-Man: Into the Spider-verse Now Streaming On Netflix. Marvel fans will now have an answer to “What do you want to watch on Netflix?”
Time to pop the popcorn, turn down the lights, and cuddle up on the couch! The Oscar winning film for Best Animated Feature Film by Marvel and Sony Pictures Animation, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-verse, is now available for viewing via Netflix.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-verse meant the world to fans who felt the films story resonate with their own lives. Both with the representation of Shameik Moore’s performance as Miles Morales, and from countless stories from fans around the world. Director, Bob Perisichetti, shared a heartwarming story he received from a fan via a direct message on social media.
“We were working so hard, we were very late in delivering the film so we didn’t really have a moment of pause before the reactions started pouring in,” Perisichetti said. “So it was kind of shocking to immediately go from the mix stage to a premiere and a release, but the positivity has been so incredible. There’s one really good story that Rodney has, but I’ve got one that I shared with you from a father of a really good friend of my son who saw this movie and sent a really incredible DM to me about how he grew up in Brooklyn, how he was this sort of really nerdy somewhat cool kid who loved Peter Parker and saw this film with his son and was just talking about how if he had this when he was a kid how much this would’ve meant to him. And he was so happy to share it with his son. So for me, it’s those moments that just make you go, ‘Oh, this is wonderful.'”
Into the Spider-verse features 7 different Spider-Man lead characters from the comics: Peter Parker, Peter B. Parker, Peter Parker (Spider-Man Nior), Gwen Stacy (Spider-Woman), Peter Porker (Spider-Ham), Peni Parker, and the featured character, Miles Morales.
After a series of unexpected events, these Spider-Men and Spider-Women team up to fight evil and work together to get back to their respective dimensions. Without spoiling the film, it is an excellent story filled with drama, comedy, action, told through a unique animation style that closely resembles the art style called “Ben Day dots” most commonly used in comics books.
With the film performing better than the studios could have hoped for and the excellent response from fans, Marvel and Sony Picture Animation are working towards releasing another animated featured film in the near future. In the meantime, those with a Netflix membership can enjoy watching Spider-Man: Into the Spider-verse!
