Say 'What's up, danger' to Spider-Verse in LEGO form

Sony Pictures' animated epic Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse has captured the hearts and imaginations of Spider-Man fans the world over, telling the origin of Miles Morales (Shameik Moore) with about a half-dozen Spider-Men from across the multiverse.

You can count YouTuber Huxley Berg Studios among those fans. The channel, which specializes in LEGO-fied renditions of popular superhero trailers, has reworked the climactic "Leap of Faith" scene from Into the Spider-Verse.

In addition to the film's dialogue and Blackway and Black Caviar's "What's Up Danger" playing in the background, merging the unique look of Into the Spider-Verse with tried-and-true LEGO stop motion is seriously impressive. All the on-screen text and comic book sound effects are represented, often through bricked-up renditions of how they appeared in the film itself.

Even though it's only been in theaters for about a month, Into the Spider-Verse has had an enormous impact in that time. On top of its impressive box-office haul, the film has managed to beat some serious competition for Best Animated Feature at both The Golden Globes and The Critics' Choice Awards earlier this month. All of which is helping generate some serious Oscar buzz.

Sony is also planning a sequel (with a possible time jump), a Spider-Gwen spinoff, and maybe even an animated series featuring one of the other iterations of Spidey. Nothing's certain on that last one, but Spider-Ham seems like a no-brainer here.

It's worth noting that Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is still playing in theaters, just in case the video inspires you to make another run for your local multiplex.
