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.

Tuned in, immediately get to watch cringey Ubisoft talking head offering her deepest sympathies to the families impacted by the Orlando shooting while flanked by a man in a giraffe suit and some sort of "horrifically garish neon costumes through the ages" exhibit or something.  We need to stop this fucking planet right now and sort some shit out. -Kail

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.
