Many did not miss the opportunity to take pictures and socialise with their favorite "Spider-Man" superhero characters from different universes.

Directed by Joaquim Dos Santos, Kemp Powers and Justin K. Thompson, most of audience members shared their positive feedbacks after watching the movie.
The first Spider-Verse was considered to be more 'relaxed', whereas this sequel presents more action, sacrifices, family and friendship stories and a darker storyline, but not overshadowed by comedy that keeps the audience entertained.
The 'multiverse' concept is seen as much more interesting because it offers more versions of the "Spider-Man" characters with their own personal stories.
