What’s weirder than just one Spider-Man? Well, that in and of itself is strange enough, but I’m going to wager that many of you reading this have at least a general idea of who Peter Parker is. In fact, in the new trailer for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, the film assumes just that. This isn’t your first rodeo with Peter Parker. He is Peter Parker, after all. But this isn’t about him. At least, not anymore. No, this story is about Miles Morales.
Indeed, Miles Morales is front and center in this upcoming animated Spider-Man film. And he’s got a life similar to most kids. His father, a cop, calls him over his cruiser’s wagon in front of all of his classmates just so Miles can say that he loves his father. And he has to mean it. But when he’s not dealing with embarrassment, Miles Morales is the one and only Spider-Man. At least, he thought so, until Wilson Fisk’s supercollider ends up opening a world to other dimensions.
Soon enough, the likes of Peter Parker, Gwen Stacy, Spider-Man Noir, heck, even Spider-Ham shows up. Yes, this definitely can get weirder. And it’s a race against time to keep Brooklyn from collapsing and help get the various Spider-characters back to their own universes. And if the collider isn’t destroyed, none of them will have a home to go to anymore. And at the end of the day, Miles will learn that what makes him different is what makes him worthy to be Spider-Man.
Have a look at the action-packed animated trailer below.
Between his appearance in Avengers: Infinity War, the upcoming Venom film, and this movie, there’s a bit of Spider-Man for everybody this year. In addition, Sony dropped a new poster for the film on Twitter, which you can see below.
