The initial reviews for Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse are in and it is safe to say Sony and Marvel have hit another home run.

Into the Spider-Verse proved to be a huge hit both commercially and critically and remains one of the most highly-regarded comic book movies of all time. Its success meant a sequel was inevitable and Across the Spider-Verse was announced in November of 2019/

The official synopsis reads:

'Over a year after the events of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018), Miles Morales is unexpectedly approached by his love interest Gwen Stacy to complete a mission to save every universe of Spider-People from the Spot, who could cause a catastrophic disaster. Miles is up for the challenge, where he and Gwen journey through the Multiverse together and meet its protectors, a group of Spider-People known as the Spider-Society, led by Miguel O'Hara. However, Miles finds himself at odds with Miguel and the Spider-Society on how to handle the threat.'

It stars a large ensemble voice cast, including Shameik Moore, Hailee Steinfeld, Brian Tyree Henry, Jake Johnson, Jason Schwartzman, Luna Lauren Vélez, Issa Rae, Karan Soni, Daniel Kaluuya and Oscar Isaac.

A few lucky members of the movie community have had the opportunity to watch the movie, and the reviews have been overwhelmingly positive.

 "OK. Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse lives one step above Masterpiece. It's an actual work of art. Every frame deserves to be hung in a museum. The jokes and nods to Spidey lore are perfect. It's OUTSTANDING. The best Spider-Man movie. Might be my favourite movie ever. Cherish it." - Sean O'Connell (@Sean_OConnell) of Cinemablend.

"Across the #SpiderVerse is simply an incredible accomplishment. It’s stunning but also very much an unfinished story by its end. Visually, it’s such a stunning achievement. It’s everything a #SpiderMan fan could ask for and much more. So good, it’s hard to believe it exists." - Brandon Davis (@BrandonDavisBD) of ComicBook.com

"#SpiderManAcrossTheSpiderVerse is yet another resounding win for the Lord Miller-produced universe. Hailee Steinfeld really comes into her own as Gwen Stacy, and her scenes with Shea Whigham's Captain Stacy are truly special. It's darker and sadder than I expected, but necessary." - Brian Davids (@PickYourBrian) of The Hollywood Reporter.

"Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse raised the bar with its unique animation style & way of storytelling. Minds were blown when it was released & fans thought there was no way it could be topped. Think again. #SpiderManAcrossTheSpiderVerse raises its own bar which seemed impossible." - Tessa Smith (@MamasGeeky) of Rotten Tomatoes.

"SPIDER-MAN: ACROSS THE SPIDER-VERSE is not surprisingly terrific. It’s a bigger story, spread out over this movie and next, but it’s still about Miles just wanting to be accepted for who he is. (There are *a lot* of Spider-People in this movie.) I laughed out loud like 8 times." - Mike Ryan (@mikeryan) of Uproxx.

"#SpiderManAcrossTheSpiderVerse is a stunning achievement. Yes, it’s visually dazzling, with expansive, expressive new realms (Gwen’s world is my favourite). But the movie’s real superpower is its emotional depth and its beautiful, melancholic tone. I love this movie so, so much." - Drew Taylor (DrewTailored) of The Wrap.
