Miles Morales moves through the Spider-Man Universe where he encounters various versions of Spider-Man who all want to protect the very existence of the multi-verse. Morales must redefine himself as a person and as a hero in the face of the new threat.

While attempting to escape the multi-verse of Spiderman (or Spider-Man?), Miles battles through and thus realizes that he will likely need to go against the grain to be the superhero that needs to be.
Everyone keeps telling me how my story is supposed to go. Nah. I'm-a do my own thing.
I'm not going to lie, I would have never - EVER - watched this movie if my son hadn't been super excited to watch it. He's a huge Spiderman fan (mainly, superheroes in general) and loves the Spidey and Friends cartoon as well - which includes the story of Miles Morales. I am SOOO glad his interest hooked me in.
Miles is new to me. He's a new superhero who came about during a time when my interest in the comic book world faded away to nostalgia and the occasional Marvel blockbuster. Everything about this film was absolutely awesome. From the backstory, the movement through the universes, the dialogue which was funny for adults and kids, and overall, a film that keeps you hooked.
On top of that is simply how beautiful it is visually. The animation is gorgeous and includes moments of flashbacks that render various forms of content, footage, and material into the film seamlessly.
There are ALOT of Superhero films out there, and many of them now have become formulaic and cliche in their own right. This one feels different, looks different, and overall, follows a new story and character that is linked to a historic one.
I'm all in on Miles Morales. I very much can't wait for the next film.
Again, this was absolutely, awesome.
