Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse review: “Has enough wit, imagination and thrills to fill several worlds”

When Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse swung into cinemas in 2018, it proved one thing startlingly apparent, however stubbornly unchangeable until that second: not each main studio animation must appear like Toy Story to achieve success. This epiphany has been widespread and keenly felt since, however COVID-19-delayed sequel Across the Spider-Verse proves that this trendsetting collection stays Miles forward of the copycat competitors. 

A supremely assured, ravishingly rendered follow-up, Across the Spider-Verse dazzles out of the gate with a bravura 25-minute pre-title sequence that includes multiverse-hopping Spider-folk from the longer term, a Da Vinci-world Vulture constructed from parchment, and a formative tragedy for Gwen Stacy. It solely raises the stakes from there.
