Young Miles Morales is astonished when after a spider bite he has the same superpowers as Spider-Man. But does he have what it takes to be a superhero? The question he soon has to ask himself when Spider-Man is killed trying to destroy a dangerous machine of the villain Kingpin. The machine opens a door to other dimensions and transports different versions of Spider-Man into the world of Miles. An elderly, frustrated Peter Parker reluctantly becomes his mentor and together with Spider-Gwen, Spider-Man Noir, Spider-Ham and the anime version Peni Parker they want to put a stop to Kingpin. But can they all go back to their respective universes before the whole world is destroyed by Kingpin's machine?
Not a Spider-Man? Anyone who fears that "Spider-Man: A New Universe" will tell the Origin story of Peter Parker for the umpteenth time can be reassured. What was conjured up on the canvas here - it's hard to describe it any other way - is something completely new in the Marvel universe. Not only is this an animated film that is visually oriented on the style of old comic books. The makers around the great producer team Phil Lord and Christopher Miller ("The Lego Movie") have also managed to enrich an original story with wonderfully bizarre humour without losing the tension.
With this Spider-Man tears can be laughed at times - right at the beginning, for instance, when one of the most controversial scenes from Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man 3" is taken for a ride in a self-ironic way. But also Spider-Ham, a heck of a good superhero of a different kind, or the great Spider-Man Noir - originally spoken by Nicholas Cage - provide a lot of fun. "Spider-Man: A New Universe" works so well because it approaches the superhero universe in a completely different way than other comic-strip adaptations have done so far. This is refreshing and extremely entertaining.
Additionally, the visual style and the sometimes very fast cuts are sometimes a bit exhausting. There are scenes where the movie in 2D looks a bit like you would see the 3D version without glasses. You have to be able to get involved with that in order to enjoy the movie in all its glory. Then you also notice the many small details - such as advertisements, movie posters, etc., which look slightly different in every universe. Especially beautiful is also one of the last cameo appearances - here in animated form - of the recently deceased Stan Lee, who besides an amused smile also provides some melancholy.
"Spider-Man: A New Universe" is not only an unusual superhero movie, but also an animated film, which swims visually wonderfully against the mainstream stream. The perfect remedy against superhero fatigue and proof that the creative air is far from out of this genre. There's the best mark in every respect and a very clear one: Absolutely worth seeing - by the way, this also applies to the wonderfully weird post-credit scene, which pays tribute to the very old Spidy cartoons with a wink. Great!
Another tip: The movie is released from 6 years on, but for this age it is just too fast, too loud and sometimes too dark. Our recommendation is rather from 9 years!
