The life of a superhero can be glamorous. You get movies, comic books, and… holiday albums?
Since one of the earlier trailers for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, fans have embraced one of the gags from the film. As Peter Parker describes his life as a superhero, he talks about how he's been put on cereal, ice cream and even his own Christmas album.

The idea of the costumed webslinger singing holiday music took over the minds of fans. Even better is after the movie itself, you can hear one of these songs in the credits. Chris Pine, the voice of one of the Spider-men, sings "Spidey Bells (A Hero's Regret)" and it's fantastic.
But it wasn't enough for fans.
Sony and Republic Records released the film's score and original soundtrack. While the soundtrack was curated to be what they imagine what the main character, Mile Morales would listen to in universe, it lacked the "Spidey Bells" song fans were hoping for.
Luckily, earlier this week Sony announced they would make A Very Spidey Christmas real. A full mini album was promised with actors from the film reprising their roles to sing holiday inspired music. Shameik Moore sings "Joy to the World (That I Just Saved)", while Jake Johnson belts out "Deck the Halls".
The full playlist is below.
