If your Spidey Senses have been tingling, it’s because Sony Pictures Animation launched the official trailer for the fully-animated, super fun looking feature Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse on Wednesday! The preview shows off the film’s very distinctive animation style, which fills the fairly normal city setting with splashes of brilliant flair inspired by the classic Marvel comic books.
The studio also revealed new images from the flick, and confirmed some great additions to the voice cast, lead by Shameik Moore as Miles Morales: Jake Johnson as Miles’ reluctant mentor, Peter Parker; Liev Schreiber as the larger-than-life crime lord Kingpin; Hailee Steinfeld as the spunky, free-spirited Spider-Gwen; Oscar winner Mahershala Ali as Miles’ influential uncle Aaron; Brian Tyree Henry as 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. 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.”
Directed by Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey and Rodney Rothman from a screenplay by Lord, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse swings into theaters December 14, 2018.
