Sony Pictures just released the first official trailer for its animated Spider-Man movie, Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse.
Unlike this year’s Spider-Man: Homecoming, which successfully introduced a new live-action Spidey, Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse will trade Peter Parker for Miles Morales, an Afro-Latino teen who is gifted with incredible powers similar to those of the original Spider-Man, Peter Parker.
What’s most exciting about this first trailer is the unique visual style. Looking at some of this footage, it’s fair to say that the directors and producers have worked hard to create something that looks completely different to other animated movies, giving this animated Spider-Man a unique identity.
Peter Ramsey (Rise of the Guardians) and Bob Persichetti direct Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse from a script by The LEGO Movie writer/director team Phil Lord, Christopher Miller and Rodney Rothman (22 Jump Street). Miles is voiced by Shameik Moore (Dope, The Get Down) with Mahershala Ali (Luke Cage) and Brian Tyree Henry (Atlanta) voicing the heroes uncles, Aaron and Jefferson Davis. Liev Schreiber voices the film’s villain in an unconfirmed role.
