Your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man is back… AGAIN! But this time, the “neighborhood” just got a lot more complicated. Swinging into New Braunfels' Stars and Stripes Drive-In, it’s Sony Animation’s Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse!
When several portals to alternate realities are opened, Miles Morales, a teen with newfound spider-like abilities must look to Peter Parker to show him the ropes… or webs… of being Spider-Man. However, Miles and Peter aren’t alone. Joining them are a host of other super-powered wall crawlers. First up is Spider-Gwen, a free-spirited heroine from a reality where Parker’s old flame Gwen Stacy is the one bitten by a radioactive spider. Next is Spider-Noir, a darker and grittier hero from the 1930’s who was, of course, also bitten by a radioactive spider. Then there’s Peni Parker, a young girl who pilots a robotic suit that is powered by… a radioactive spider, and finally the anthropomorphic Spider-Ham who is actually the result of a spider being bitten by a radioactive pig! That’s a lot of Spider-People!
Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse is the result of Sony Pictures’ long planned attempt to “rejuvenate” the Spider-Man franchise in an animated format and the filmmakers went all out for the occasion, developing a brand new style of animation that combines the proven techniques of 70-year-old comic art with modern CGI-animation.
Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse is definitely the film to see and if you’re in the New Braunfels-verse, the Stars and Stripes Drive-In is the place to see it! Thwip the link below and get your tickets today!
