After months of waiting since the teaser, new footage is finally here. I spilled soda on my laptop (you pervs) watching the vibrant visuals as a new face is swinging around NYC in the first official trailer for Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse.
Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse focuses on Miles Morales (Shameik Moore), he takes over the mantle of Spider-Man after Peter Parker dies. Somehow he meets Peter (Jake Johnston) from another universe and what follows looks to be a universe-hopping adventure.
Peter takes another L in 2018 as he is dead in two universes, but he still plays a mentor to Miles in this movie. Maybe he’ll teach him to stay on the bus and put some earphones in during an alien attack.
But Miles…we gotta talk about your barber, start tipping the man or he will keep you from ever getting a girl. Seriously, if a villain unmasked you like they do to Peter every other week, they’re going to roast you verbally before literally doing it.
It Has Been A Long Road
Created by Brian-Micheal Bendis and Sara Pichelli, the character has turned out to be very popular with readers. Inspired by Donald Glover’s campaign to be in the Amazing Spider-Man films, Miles first appeared in Ultimate Fallout#4. Although #Donald4SpiderMan didn’t happen, Glover did end up in Spider-Man: Homecoming last year as Miles’ criminal uncle Aaron Davis.
Glover ended up playing Miles in an episode of Ultimate Spiderman that fans craved. Another character coming to prominence in recent years, Spider-Gwen (Hailee Steinfeld), is making her big-screen debut. Looking at Gwen appearing in the trailer, it wouldn’t be too crazy to think other big web-slingers like Miguel O’Hara might pop up.
This film was leaked back in 2014 when the whole Sony hacker thing was happening. The hack revealed Phil Lord to be working on development, writing a script by 2016. Lord has made critically-acclaimed animated movies such as Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs (2009) and The Lego Movie (2014).
Audiences will see how this all unravels once the movie drops later this year. Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse is scheduled to hit theaters December 14th, 2018.
