Watch Miles Morales Swing Into Action In New ‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’ Trailer
Voiced by Shameik Moore (Dope, The Get Down) — Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse adds a bit of flair to Marvel’s animated universe.
Marvel is on a tear after their cinematic trailers for Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War obliterated the internet. Now, it appears the animated side of Marvel is coming to snatch DC Animation’s crown. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, the first project to not star Peter Parker, just released its debut trailer courtesy of Sony Pictures Animation.
Starring Shameik Moore (Dope, The Get Down) in the central role as Brooklyn’s own Miles Morales — Into the Spider-Verse asks the question of what could happen if more than one person wore the Spider-Man mask.
For those who aren’t familiar with Miles Morales, the character was created by Marvel Comics’ own Brian Michael Bendis and Sara Pichelli six years ago for their Ultimate Spider-Man run. In the clip, you can actually see Miles asking another Spider-Man, “How many of us are there?” near the end of the trailer.
Into the Spider-Verse was written by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (The Lego Movie) and is directed by Bob Persichetti and Peter Ramsey.
2017 and 2018 has been a great year for Spidey. Whether it was dominating the box office for the MCU’s Spider-Man: Homecoming or Marvel boss Kevin Feige confirming that Miles Morales exists in the MCU — we cannot wait to see this Kings County champion do us proud when Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse hits theaters Dec. 2018.
