Delving deep into Spider-Man lore, we give the sticky skinny on Into the Spider-Verse!” They end up reminiscing about past victories and tragedies in the Spider-Man ethos, calling out the finer points between the film and comic it’s based on. Give props where the production warrants, and call out the few and far-betweens where it doesn’t. If you’re a fan of the wall-crawler, you’ll wanna stick around for this one.
