Since the mid-2000s, when Christopher Nolan directed the Batman trilogy and kicked off the Marvel Cinematic Universe, superheroes took on a new role in cinema and we have been living in a golden age of the genre. However, so far no film had dethroned The Dark Knight (2008) as the best superhero movie… until now.

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse has just been released and it has achieved all kinds of records. The sequel to Into the Spider-Verse has reached number 1 on platforms such as IMDb and Letterbox, where it has risen as the film with the best rating in history. And, of course, it has surpassed The Dark Knight as the best superhero film.

Across the Spider-Verse has broken all records

With an average score of 4.7 out of 5 in its premiere on Letterbox, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse has even managed to beat out Massacre: Come and See, the Russian film that was the highest-rated film on the platform so far. And on IMDb, meanwhile, it currently has a 9.1, just shy of catching up to The Godfather (9.2) and Lifetime (9.3), which stand as the best ever.

Finally, on platforms such as Filmaffinity, somewhat more critical, it has managed to reach 8.3, which places it in the top 40 and surpasses The Dark Knight, which has an 8.1. There is no doubt that the film, all in all, is achieving incredible support from audiences, and despite being a sequel to an already successful film, it has managed to beat all the records it achieved previously.
