There have been more than a dozen Spider-Man movies made. With reboot after reboot, some Spider-Man movies are more favored than others. One of the Spider-Man movies that is still holding the attain of its audience is "Spider-Man: Into the Spider Verse."

“Spider-Man: Into the Spider-verse” was directed by Peter Ramsey, Rodney Rothman, And Bob Persichetti. The film is an animated Spider-Man movie that was released in 2018. Its sequel "Spider-Man: Across The Spider-verse " was released in 2023. Sequels are usually seen as good but not better than the first. Despite this the second movie surpassed its production budget that was $100 million, making $689 million. While the first movie was a flop at the box office and was one of the lowest-grossing Spider-Man movies by a long shot.

According to an article by New York Times writer Carlos Aguilar.....

One of the things that made both the Spider-Verse films stand out from the others was the art they used. The inspiration they used to create their film came directly from its beginning. The comic books. This made the new animation stand out for having modern-day issues and the art of the original idea behind Spider-Man. One of the ways they accomplished this was by having actual comic book artists join in the making of the film:

“Rick Leonardi, who designed the comic “Spider-Man 2099,” came on board to help devise 3-D animation tools that could emulate his line work. And Brian Stelfreeze, a seasoned artist for Marvel Comics, was instrumental in formulating the film’s take on Jessica Drew/Spider-Woman.”
