These days, we all can’t get enough of superheroes, but Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse went ahead and reinvented just how impactful a superhero story could be. The 2018 animated favorite follows teenager Miles Morales (Shameik Moore), who gets bitten by a radioactive spider on the subway in New York City. Suddenly, he’s granted the powers that take him from an average teenager and turn him into Spider-Man. When he meets Peter Parker (Jake Johnson), Miles discover there are more people out there who share his power in this touching superhero adventure.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse became a huge hit upon release in 2018, bringing in over $375 million worldwide against a budget of $90 million. The film holds a 97% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and won the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature, the first movie not hailing from Disney or Pixar to win the Oscar since 2011. Because of its success and critical acclaim, a sequel will be released in 2022, and a spin-off titled Spider-Women featuring Spider-Gwen is currently in development. Of all the animated films released in the past few years, none had received as much love an adoration as this hands-down must-watch.
