Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is considered to be one of greatest (if not the greatest) Spider-Man movies ever produced in the character's 56-year history.

Online, folks have admitted to seeing the movie multiple times in theaters, and who could blame them? Like the comic books it emulates via its visual style, Into the Spider-Verse is chock-full of things (easter eggs and otherwise) that cannot be absorbed in just one single viewing.

Luckily, you can soak up a lot of the details from the movie's entire screenplay, which Sony Pictures released online for free right here. That's right, no purchase is required to read the 131-page script by Phil Lord (The LEGO Movie) and Rodney Rothman (22 Jump Street). Lord (who also served as an EP with Chris Miller) came up with the story, while Rothman directed it alongside Peter Ramsey (Puss in Boots) and Bob Persichetti (Sausage Party).

Breaking the Spidey mold in several ways, the film centers around the first Spider-Man of color, Miles Morales (Shameik Moore). Created by Brian Bendis and Sara Pichelli less than 10 years ago, Miles must team up with Spider-People from other dimensions—Peter Parker (Jake Johnson), Spider-Gwen (Hailee Steinfeld), Peni Parker (Kimiko Glenn), Spider-Man Noir (Nicolas Cage), and Spider-Ham (John Mulaney)—to save the entire multiverse from being destroyed by Kingpin (Liev Schreiber).

Also featuring a post-credits cameo from Spider-Man 2099 (Oscar Isaac), the movie ends with the promise of endless possibilities. Indeed, it has been confirmed that the spinoff project from Lauren Montgomery and Bek Smith will introduce Cindy Moon's Silk and Jessica Drew's Spider-Woman to the animated universe.

Now in its third weekend in theaters, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse has made just over $156 million at the international box office.
