Across the Spider-Verse overtakes The Dark Knight to be the high-rated comic book movie of all time

Across the Spider-Verse overtakes The Dark Knight to be the high-rated comic book movie of all time

The latest Miles Morales flick has overtaken the Batman classic on IMDb.

The latest Miles Morales movie has knocked The Dark Knight off its coveted perch as the highest-rating comic book film on IMDb.

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse now sits at the top of the pops on the Internet Movie Database, with a standing ovation-worthy rating of 9.1.

That means The Dark Knight, which was also based on a comic book, has been pipped at the post.

The Dark Knight sits at 9.0 on IMDb.

Oh, and for those of you playing at home, Avengers Endgame came in third place, with a rating of 8.4.

As per IMDb's popularity list for superhero feature films (regardless of comic book adaptations), Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse has entered the chat at number six.

It follows Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, The Super Mario Bros. Movie, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, The Flash, Shazam! Fury of the Gods on that list, with the latest Guardians of the Galaxy flick currently sitting at number one.

That list, however, comes down to fan voting so we're sure to see that one change in the coming weeks.

And that's not all for fans of Miles Morales.

It seems the good news for Spider-Verse fans just keeps on coming.

Days ago, at the May 30 premiere of Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse in Los Angeles, Marvel producer Amy Pascal officially confirmed a live-action film version on Morales' adventures is currently in the works.

The Hollywood big-wig revealed to Variety fans will 'see all of it' very soon.

"It’s all happening," she teased.

As for the other Spider-Man related flicks in the works, Pascal said a fourth Spider-Man movie is in the works with Tom Holland and Zendaya.

However, development is currently on hold due to the 2023 Writers Guild of America strike.

"Are we going to make another movie? Of course, we are," she told Variety.

"We’re in the process, but the writers strike, nobody is working during the strike. We’re all being supporters and whenever they get themselves together, we’ll get started."

There's also a Spider-Woman movie on its way, where we'll see a female superhero version of the traditionally male superhero have her chance in the sun.

Marvel producer Avi Arad dropped a major hint for moviegoers, telling fan's she'll swing into theaters 'sooner than you expect'.

"I cannot tell you yet, but it’s coming," he said.

Our Spidey senses are tingling here, and we're seeing nothing but good things ahead for this multiverse.
