It’s a good time to be a Spider-Man fan! With the recent success of the Homecoming film from the MCU, plus an action-adventure game for the PlayStation 4, it looks like everyone's friendly neighborhood spider is webbing up for more.
Over the weekend, Sony dropped the first official trailer for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, which features Brooklyn-based teenager Miles Morales (voiced by Shameik Moore) as the new wall-crawler.
The film is helmed by directors Bob Persichetti (The Little Prince, Puss in Boots) and Peter Ramsey (Rise of the Guardians) with scripts from Phil Lord and Chris Miller (21 Jump Street, The Lego Movie).
Check out the trailer released during Brazil’s Comic-Con Experience:
While the trailer showed promise with its stunning graphic style, we still couldn’t help but ask some questions about the upcoming flick:
The first question that'll probably pop in the minds of Spider-Man fans is this: where the heck is Peter Parker? Apparently, the trailer gives us a few clues after showing a gravestone with the initials “PP.” We can only think of one guy with those initials...
Miles, a certified hypebeast?
Wait a minute, is Miles rocking some Chicago Air Jordan 1 kicks? Check the killer pair out for yourself around the 25-second mark.
Who’s the main villain?
There’s no solid confirmation yet about who the antagonist will be (although it’s likely to be Morlun), but we do see Miles chasing the Prowler, his troublemaker uncle with criminal tendencies around 43 seconds into the trailer.
Spider suit capabilities
It’s been a while since we’ve seen Spider-Man sporting a black colorway version of his iconic suit. It definitely has a refreshing yet nostalgic vibem but we’re also curious whether he’ll be given access to advanced tech similar to Homecoming’s Stark-modified suit that had some pretty cool functions.
How many Spider-Men are there?
By the end of the trailer, we can see an unmasked Miles chatting with another Spider-Man at a subway station. The trailer reveals that this movie is “where more than one wears the mask.” We're just as clueless as Miles when he asks: “Wait, so how many of us are there?”
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse hits theaters in December 2018.
