Adam Graham Detroit News Film Critic Published 11:37 PM EST Dec 13, 2018 After six movies and two complete series overhauls since 2002, the last thing we need right now is another riff on the "Spider-Man" tale. So it comes as a shocker that "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse" is one of the year's most vital pieces of entertainment, a fresh, funny, eye-popping new spin on the Spider-Man tale.

He can be a middle-aged dude with a paunch. He can even be a cartoon pig. It’s hard to underestimate what this means. “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” does what comics and graphic novels have long experimented with: It opens up a universe of possibilities. “Anyone can wear the mask. You can wear the mask,” we are told. The result is a film that’s fantastically fresh, both … [Read more...] about Too much Spider-Man? Not in ‘The Spider-Verse’
