It’s no shock that I love Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. You may have noticed that I never stop talking about Spider-Man, or the tattoo of his mask on my wrist. So, news that a Spider-Verse sequel is underway delights me to no end. What’s interesting now is that Christopher Miller tweeted out that the artistic techniques being used for the visuals in the followup film make the first movie look “quaint.”

So … what does that mean? If you remember, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse was one of the most visually stunning films of all time. In fact, it won the Oscar for Best Animated Picture. So, whatever they have in store for me, I’m ready for it. I can’t wait to cry over another movie about Spider-Man because, as the first one pointed out, anyone can wear the mask.
