Katy Perry is a best-selling, award-winning singer-songwriter with a couple of Guinness World Records -- and now, she's a Spider-Man fan. The current American Idol judge posted on Twitter that Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse has awoken her inner Spider-fan.
Perry complimented the film for its mix of animation, jokes that appealed to both kids and adults and moments of honest sincerity and heartfelt emotion. The singer’s quote about making the leap is a reference to the advice Jake Johnson’s Peter Parker gave Miles Morales (Shameik Moore) regarding how he would know he was ready to be Spider-Man in the movie. The quote echoes through a montage of voices in the teenager's mind as Miles prepares to take that leap of faith dressed in his own distinctive spider-suit.
Tbh haven’t been a spider man fan until seeing Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse tonight. It was hands down the best mixed animation, jokes for all ages and chocked-full of non cheese heart. Glad I took the leap @SpiderVerse 🕸 #notanad #justanopinion #seeforyourself #bye— KATY PERRY (@katyperry) January 4, 2019
Recently, Perry recorded the song "Immortal Flame" for the mobile role-playing game Final Fantasy Brave Exvius, which debuted on December 12th last year. She also lent her likeness for several playable characters which would be available in future in-game events.
