Spider-Man may officially be a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but that doesn't mean Sony is done with him, as the latest trailer for their upcoming "Spider-Man: Inside the Spider-Verse" proves.
Here the protagonist isn't Peter Parker but Miles Morales - a young black kid from Brooklyn with his own distinctive Spider-suit. As the trailer shows, the hulking gargoyle-esque version of Green Goblin/Norman Osborn also appears, but that voice actor has yet to be revealed.
The two-minute clip introduces another Spider-Man (Spider-Woman, technically) towards the end, or rather Spider-Gwen: Gwen Stacy (voiced by Hailee Steinfeld) also has radioactive spider powers too in this Spider-Verse. Watch the trailer below. The trailer is fast-moving and amusing, the animation looks amazing-and if you watch to the end youll see a surprise guest appearance from a third Spider-person.
This unique vision comes from the minds of an exceptionally talented crew, including producers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (The Lego Movie), and directors Bob Persichetti (head of story on Puss in Boots), Peter Ramsey (director of Rise of the Guardians), and Rodney Rothman (writer of Lord and Miller's 22 Jump Street).
Take a look at the wickedly cool, web-slinging Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse trailer above.
Commenting on the announcement, producers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller said, "We are lucky to have such an unbelievable cast of amusing, genuine creative souls to populate the Spider-verse".
For those intrigued to check out Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Columbia Pictures will release the movie theatrically on December 14, 2018. We will be exploring both the high points and low points they brought to the big screen legacy of Spidey. Marvel switched things up when they turned Falcon into Captain America, had Jane Foster become Thor, and created a half Black, half Latino Spider-Man.
