As a way to start out the new year, I thought I’d try a little experiment. Since Sony released the screenplay for Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse, I thought I’d show everyone what a professional coverage report should look like.
I’m treating this script as a reader would any spec script submitted to an agent or contest, instead of a work-for-hire from a major studio on a major property. This report is also a critique of the script, not of the finished film. Since this is a review of the full screenplay, this entry will contain MAJOR SPOILERS for the film.

(Full disclosure: I saw the film and, as a lifelong comic book fan, I thoroughly enjoyed it and highly recommend that everyone see it.)
Hopefully, this will give you an idea as to what kind of feedback to expect when you submit your screenplay for coverage.
