Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is ending up on many critics’ top ten lists for their favorites of the year – including my own. The film dazzles the screen with moving comic panels and comes alive with pop-up action blurbs. It’s unlike any other film you’ve seen before. It only gets better with a new web spin on the classic webhead. We don’t have to hear another retelling of Peter Parker’s story. Instead, Miles Morales swings in as the lead, breathing new life into the Spider-Man lore.
And now, you can read the script, written by co-producer Phil Lord and co-director Rodney Rothman, for yourself. It’s full of self-deprecating humor, hilarious gags, heartfelt moments, and heart-stopping action. Check it out below.
It’s amazing how much of an impact this film has had on a wide audience. It has meant so much to fans and moviegoers alike, Rothman and Lord were generous enough to release the script to the public. A very rare event.
Now, there was some improvisation in the film, so the script isn’t 100% accurate. But it is damn near close. So for those who have seen it, click on the link to the script that was posted by Rothman himself on his official Twitter account.
Here’s the official plot synopsis:
