Sony has dropped an exciting new trailer for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, a CG-animated chapter in the studio’s ever-expanding brand.
The film introduces Miles Morales (voiced by Shameik Moore) to the big screen as Brooklyn hero Spider-Man, who finds himself on one mind-boggling adventure when Wilson “Kigpin” Fisk uses a super collider and inadvertently causes other Spider-hereos to cross dimensions. Miles soon realises he is far from the one and only Spider-Man; meet, among others, Peter Parker (Jake Johnson), Gwen Stacy (Hailee Steinfeld) and Spider-Ham (John Mulaney).
Yep, Spider-Ham. The Simpsons Movie may have had Homer hanging out with his beloved Spider-Pig, but the hoofed mammal was given his Spidey iteration in the one-shot humor comic book Marvel Tails Starring Peter Porker, the Spectacular Spider-Ham #1 back in 1983. An ongoing bi-monthly series followed.
The Lego Movie, 21/22 Jump Street and once Solo helmers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are on board as producers here, with Lord also writing the screenplay.
The distinct animation style looks fantastic, there’s a great energy, the humour looks on point, and Spidey fans appear to be in for a ton of nods. We can’t wait for this one. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse will swing into Australian cinemas on 13 December and US cinemas on 14 December.
Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, the creative minds behind The Lego Movie and 21 Jump Street, bring their unique talents to a fresh vision of a different Spider-Man Universe, with a groundbreaking visual style that’s the first of its kind. Spider-Man™: Into the Spider-Verse introduces Brooklyn teen Miles Morales, and the limitless possibilities of the Spider-Verse, where more than one can wear the mask.
