Released in US theatres on December 14, 2019, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse was quickly described as one of the best comic book movies ever made.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse introduces Brooklyn teen Miles Morales, and the limitless possibilities of the Spider-Verse, where more than one can wear the iconic mask.
“One of the most rewarding experiences in recent months has been to hear that children are telling their parents that they see themselves in Miles, or that they want to grow up to be like Spider-Gwen, anyone can be a hero. That’s why we made this film, and we hope that feeling of empowerment is something that both audiences young and old can take away,” say Directors Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey, and Rodney Rothman.
The voice cast includes Shameik Moore as Miles Morales alongside Jake Johnson as Peter B. Parker, Hailee Steinfeld as Gwen Stacy/Spider-Gwen, Mahershala Ali as Miles’ Uncle Aaron, Brian Tyree Henry as Jefferson Davis, Lily Tomlin as Aunt May, Luna Lauren Velez as Rio Morales, Zoë Kravitz as Mary Jane, John Mulaney as Spider-Ham, with Nicholas Cage as Spider-Man Noir, Kathryn Hahn as Doc Ock and Liev Schreiber as the villain Kingpin.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse has been directed by Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey and Rodney Rothman, and screenplay by Phil Lord and Rodney Rothman from a story by Lord.
