Enter a New Dimension in the First Trailer for "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse"

Written by

This is one of those things that can make certain members of the general public that are casual fans of things a little bit confused. More than one person has been Spider-Man, which means that the traditional story of Peter Parker sometimes gets thrown out the window. There's a storyline that's appeared in comics in which there have been many variations on Spider-Man (and not just "man"), perhaps most famously when a kid named Miles Morales dons the mask. This Christmas, that comes to the big screen in the animated film, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse," which comes to life from Sony Pictures Animation. Check out the new trailer and full details below!

Official Announcement: Sony Pictures Animation today launched the first full trailer for Spider-Man™: Into the Spider-Verse and confirmed the vocal cast joining Shameik Moore as he takes on the role of Miles Morales.  

Jake Johnson is joining the cast as Miles' reluctant mentor, Peter Parker, with Liev Schreiber playing the larger-than-life crime lord Kingpin, Hailee Steinfeld playing the spunky, free-spirited Spider-Gwen, Oscar® winner Mahershala Ali as Miles' influential uncle Aaron, Brian Tyree Henry playing Miles' father Jefferson, Luna Lauren Velez as Miles' mother Rio, and Lily Tomlin as Aunt May.

Commenting on the announcement, producers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller said, "We are lucky to have such an amazing cast of funny, genuine creative souls to populate the Spider-verse. They have generous minds and great big hearts. And they have very talented throats.  Which is where their delightful voices come from." 

Lord and Miller continued: "We can't wait for the world to see Miles Morales on the big screen. He's such a fun and exciting new character, and telling his story through a revolutionary visual style makes for a totally fresh cinematic experience that, if we may say so, is freaking amazing."

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-Verseintroduces Brooklyn teen Miles Morales, and the limitless possibilities of the Spider-Verse, where more than one can wear the mask.  Directed by Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey, and Rodney Rothman, the screenplay is by Phil Lord.  The film is produced, in association with Marvel, by Avi Arad, Amy Pascal, Phil Lord, Christopher Miller, and Christina Steinberg.
