When it comes to family movies, Marvel definitely leads the way. For the past decade, Marvel films have been delighting audiences of all ages, especially kids.

Here, we’ll look at how Marvel films such as this one, are helping our kids to explore their creativity.
Getting kids back into comics
The new Spider Man into the Spider Verse movie benefits from a unique graphic novel style animation. This can help kids get back into the Marvel comics. While they used to be extremely popular, comics have certainly died down due to advancements in technology. So, why does an increased interest in the comics benefit kids today?
For one thing, it gets kids reading more. The majority of kids today spend far too much time in front of a screen, whether it be in front of a TV, Smartphone or tablet device. So, encouraging them away from a screen, actually reading from a comic, is going to be great for their development. 
Inspiring creativity
Comics and Marvel films such as the new Spider Man movie, also help to foster creativity. While many Marvel films aren’t suitable for children, the comics and the latest animated film are perfect for inquisitive minds. They encourage kids to draw, paint and create stories just like the ones they read in the Marvel Universe. 
Great Marvel comics to introduce to your kids
Over the years, there has been a huge range of Marvel comics released. So, how do you know which ones to purchase for your children? Well, it could be a great idea to check out the most popular Marvel comics of all time
Unsurprisingly, Avengers is up there with the best of the best. The Amazing Spider Man Annual, Thor, Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk are also popular choices. Think about the characters your child typically likes best in the Marvel Universe and then search for a comic which features them.

Overall, the latest Spider Man film does encourage kids to be a little more creative. In a digital age where creativity isn’t as encouraged as it used to be, it’s a good idea to take advantage of any activity and film which fosters it.
