If you own it, watch the alternate universe version. It adds about a half hour of material, most of it storyboard but some fully rendered and with a lot of the dialogue recorded. It flashes out the narrative and adds a few twists.

I finally watched this On Demand last night. It was excellent. Spider Gwen was easily my favorite part of the movie and was the only reveal I guessed long before it happened. I've heard she is a great character and if she is like that in the comics I can see why. I'm not buying her and Miles as a romance but only because he looks a lot younger than her due to the animation style I think. Like she looks 18 and he looks 14 to my eyes.

In the comics, she's 21 and he's 16-17, so it's kinda weird.

They brought their ages closer together for the movie though and they could probably hand wave a lot of it away by coming up with some "time moves differently in the alternate universes", or some such time-wimey jiggery-pokery.

They don't really give ages in the movie but I honestly thought he was in middle school when the movie started. I think it's just my misreading of his age that made it odd for me in the movie. They're probably intended to be within a year or two of each other in the movie.

This movie did make me consider hunting down graphic novels that collected some of the Spider Gwen comics to see if she is as fun in comic form as she was in the movie.

Gwen specifically mentions being 15 months older than Miles right before she heads back to her dimension.

The Spider-Gwen comics are generally pretty good, if you dig the art style - it's highly stylized.

A woman I know just posted some pics on Facebook of her daughter requesting Spider Gwen's haircut and it's adorable.

I was surprised to see this pop up on Netflix and immediately watched half of it...despite it being 2am when I noticed it.

Phenomenal comics movie, they just nailed it.

Yeah, the animation and art direction on this was super impressive.  The way they blended the different art styles and the random use of comic thought bubbles/boxes though out....  Just a lot of fun to watch.

Haven't been able to confirm it, but a co-worker mentioned that apparently they played even more subtle tricks with the visual effects than most people think.   Supposedly for the first half or so of the move, Miles is actually animated at a slightly slower frame rate than everyone/thing around him, and he is eventually "sped up" to a matching framerate with the rest of the cast to highlight his development as a person / fully coming into his role as the new spiderperson of his universe.

He is indeed animated on 2's immediately from the point he gets his super powers to the point he makes his leap of faith
