DC writer Scott Snyder has heaped tons of praise on Sony's Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, calling it "a deeply inspiring movie" and a comic book film that "changes the game."
Snyder tweeted his love for the movie, highlighting how seamlessly it blends together multiple Spider-Men, despite the tough task of having to introduce the audience to all these new faces that aren't your typical Peter Parker. From a writing perspective, Snyder joins the chorus of fans and critics left astounded in the wake of Shameik Moore's Miles Morales taking up the mantle and leading a crusade to save the multiverse.
As a writer, #Spiderverse is a deeply inspiring movie. The challenge of that script - introducing a new spidey, a new universe, then 4 more new spideys, making it all feel true, exciting, heartbreaking... that math is next level hard and the movie was incredibly good— Scott Snyder (@Ssnyder1835) December 15, 2018
Also, taking risks on new characters in print is always worth it. For every 1 that doesn't hit, you might get a character like Miles who opens new worlds of story for creators and fans. #spiderverse is a testament to that & a total rebuke to those who fight risk-taking and change— Scott Snyder (@Ssnyder1835) December 15, 2018
Kids in the back all excited about who got Miles Morales, Gwen Stacy and spider ham in the trading cards the theater was giving out. This movie changes the game. Brilliance— Scott Snyder (@Ssnyder1835) December 15, 2018
Snyder, who has helped shape the DC Universe with his Batman and Justice League stories, also lauded Sony for taking a chance on the film and reiterated that the success of this ensemble flick proves why writers in the comic book medium need to keep creating new and diverse characters like Miles in print. Because, of course, they could be the next big thing as this young hero has proven to be.
