The first full trailer for Sony’s upcoming animated “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” feature was released on Wednesday, introducing Brooklyn teenager Miles Morales as the new web-crawler.
In the clip, Morales happens on a chance encounter with Spider-Man while in battle and he learns that he’s just like Spider-Man.
As Morales comes to grips with his special powers under the watchful tutelage of Peter Parker himself, he learns about what it means to be Spider-Man, but on his own terms.
Morales will be voiced by Shameik Moore, while Jake Johnson voices Peter Parker. Liev Schreiber plays the crime lord Kingpin, Hailee Steinfeld is Spider-Gwen, Mahershala Ali is Miles’ influential uncle Aaron, Brian Tyree Henry plays Miles’ father, Jefferson, Luna Lauren Velez is Miles’ mother Rio, and Lily Tomlin plays Aunt May.
“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,” said producers Phil Lord and Chris Miller. “Which is where their delightful voices come from.
“We can’t wait for the world to see Miles Morales on the big screen,” they continued. “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.”
“Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” is produced by Lord and Miller. Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey, and Rodney Rothman are directing from a screenplay by Lord. The film is produced, in association with Marvel, by Avi Arad, Amy Pascal, Lord, Miller, and Christina Steinberg.
“Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” opens on Dec. 14.
