Although computer-animated movies have been an accessory in theaters for decades, Sony Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse updating the status quo last December, presenting the fans with a visual spectacle never before seen. Led by producers Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the animated film is one of the best-reviewed superhero films of all time and was one of the first superhero films to win an Oscar at this year's Academy Awards.
Suffice it to say that the visual effects artist from around the world has nothing but good things to say about the film. In the last episode of Corridor Crews "VFX Artists React …" of the series, a team of visual effects artists breaks down some of the most important moments of the film, including a Marvel technician who probably did not notice.

Although largely unnoticed by the uninitiated, it does provide Miles a little annoying as he works to discover who he is. Then, as the new Spider-Man continues through the film, his animation slowly coincides with that of Peter Parker by Jake Johnson when Miles begins to settle into his new role.
