Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield, Tom Holland… a lot of actors have already played Spider-Man on film, but that number is about to increase exponentially with the release of Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse.
Sony Pictures has released a new trailer for December’s big-budget animation and it introduces a whole bunch on new web-slingers who can all lay claim to the Spider-Man mantle.
First of all we meet Jake Johnson’s Peter Parker. He’s the Spider-Man we know and love (the trailer even suggests he could be Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man: watch out for the cafe scene). Then we meet Shameik Moore’s Miles Morales, the first non-white Spider-Man, who exists in a parallel universe.
Then in quick succession we meet Spider-Gwen (Hailee Steinfeld), Spider-Man Noir (Nicolas Cage), an anime Spider-Girl, and finally Spider-Ham AKA Peter Porker (John Mulaney).
Not to be confused with Spider-Pig AKA Harry Plopper of The Simpsons Movie fame.
It looks like Morales opens up a gateway between the Spider-Verses using a “collider” in the film, and so he must team up with the other Spider-People, tackle some of his most iconic adversaries, and get himself home in time for dinner.
There’s no room for Uncle Ben in this Spider-Man story.
Here’s the synopsis and the new poster.
Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, the creative minds behind The Lego Movie and 21 Jump Street, bring their unique talents to a fresh version 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. Bob Persichetti and Peter Ramsey direct, along with Rodney Rothman.
Spider-Man™: Into the Spider-Verse is in cinemas 12 December, with previews 8-9 December.
