Sony released the second trailer for Spider-Man: Into The Spiderverse.
Shameik Moore stars as Miles Morales, the Brooklyn teen who’s the new Spider-Man, currently being trained by the old Spider-Man Peter Parker (Jake Johnson). Henry plays Morales’s dad, a sweetly embarrassing cop; Steinfeld is Gwen Stacy, who’s got a spidey sense of her own. Two key characters go largely unseen in this trailer: Schrieber’s villain Kingpin, and Ali as Morales’s uncle Aaron Davis (who was played by Donald Glover in the Spider-Man: Homecoming).
Miles Morales is another popular version of the character, first introduced in August 2011 in Ultimate Fallout #4. Like Peter Parker, he was bitten by a radioactive spider and developed superpowers, and became Spiderman after the Green Goblin killed Peter. While Marvel Studios has brought the traditional Spider-man into its larger cinematic universe, this film will standalone from those stories, and looks as though it’ll be an origin story, while its title hints as a broader world of its own.
Spider-verse also features Mahershala Ali, Brian Tyree Henry, Shameik Moore, Hailee Steinfeld, Lily Tomlin, and Liev Schreiber
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-verse will hit theaters December 21st, 2018.
