Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (called Spider-Man: New Generation in France) is a 2018 CG superhero movie released by Sony Pictures Entertainment.
Miles Morales, a teenager who admires Spider-Man, struggles to adjust to his new elite boarding school and live up to the expectations of his parents, Rio Morales and Jefferson Davis, who views Spider-Man as a menace. After becoming attracted to his class mate "Gwanda", Miles seeks advice from his uncle Aaron Davis. Aaron encourages Miles to pursue his passion for graffiti and leads him to a subway station where he can draw. While there, Miles is bitten by a radioactive spider and develops spider-like abilities.
Unable to contact Aaron, he returns to the station and finds a secret laboratory where Wilson Fisk has built a particle accelerator to access parallel universes and reconnect with alternate versions of his wife, Vanessa, and his son, Richard, who died in a car accident. Spider-Man arrives to disable the accelerator and fights Green Goblin and Prowler. During the melee, Spider-Man meets Miles and senses they are alike but is then gravely wounded when the accelerator malfunctions. Spider-Man gives Miles a USB drive to disable the accelerator and informs him that the machine could destroy the city if turned on again. Shortly afterward, Fisk kills Spider-Man as Miles escapes.
Inspired by Spider-Man's sacrifice, Miles attempts to master his new abilities but inadvertently damages the drive. Miles is later approached by Peter B. Parker, an older and jaded Spider-Man from another dimension who has separated from his ex-wife Mary Jane Watson and recently lost his Aunt May. Peter has been brought into Miles' world by the accelerator and needs to return home, so he begrudgingly agrees to train Miles in exchange for help in stealing data about how to repair the drive from Fisk's facility. While breaking into the building, Miles displays the unique abilities of invisibility and an electric "venom blast" that can disable enemies by touch. They are confronted by Fisk's assistant Olivia Octavius, who reveals that Peter will eventually deteriorate and die the longer he stays on their Earth. Miles and Peter are then rescued by "Gwanda", revealed to be another dimension-displaced heroine whose real name is Gwen Stacy. Gwen leads Peter and Miles to May Parker, who is sheltering Spider-Man Noir, Spider-Ham, and Peni Parker and SP//dr. They are revealed to also be deteriorating, so Miles proposes disbanding the accelerator himself to send the other Spider-People home.
While Peni repairs the drive, Peter unsuccessfully attempts to teach Miles how to control his powers. Pressure from the group causes an overwhelmed Miles to retreat to Aaron's apartment, where he discovers that Aaron is Prowler. Miles returns to May's house but is followed and the group is soon located by Fisk, Aaron, Octavius, Scorpion and Tombstone, leading to a brawl. Aaron corners Miles on a roof and pulls off his mask, realizing that he was hunting his nephew. When Aaron refuses to kill Miles, Fisk shoots Aaron. Miles gets himself and Aaron to safety, but Aaron dies from his injuries, Jefferson discovers Miles over Aaron's body and mistakenly informs the police that Spider-Man is the killer.
Peter restrains Miles and leaves him behind in his dorm for his own safety. Jefferson arrives outside Miles' door to tell him about Aaron's death and, assuming Miles does not want to speak to him, apologizes for his mistakes and reassures Miles. Uplifted, Miles escapes and visits May's house, where he spray-paints one of Peter's old Spider-Man costumes for himself. After testing his powers and learning to use them on command, he joins the others and helps them defeat Octavius, Scorpion, and Tombstone. Miles activates the drive and sends the Spider-People back home just before Fisk arrives. The two fight throughout the accelerator, attracting Jefferson's attention. Jefferson realizes that Spider-Man is not the enemy and encourages him, giving Miles the motivation to withstand Fisk's attacks and knock him out with his venom blast, which also destroys the accelerator. As the authorities arrest Fisk and his enforcers, Jefferson recognizes Spider-Man as a hero and Miles embraces the responsibilities of his new life, Peter brings flowers to Mary Jane, the other Spider-people resume their lives, and Gwen finds a way to contact Miles across dimensions.
In a post-credits scene, Miguel O'Hara learns about the crisis and develops his own dimension-hopping drive. O'Hara decides to return to "the beginning" on Earth-67, but ends up getting into an argument with that universe's Spider-Man in a scene that mirrors the "Double Identity" episode.
