Back when Sony announced their Spider-Man universe they were building at Sony, much of it never materialize. However, it seemed the promised animated movie did continue. During the Comic-Con Experience in Sao Paulo, Brazil, the first trailer for the upcoming Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse was dropped.
There is not much to the trailer, except introducing fans to Miles Morales and teases the death of Peter Parker. For comic fans, Miles Morales has been around for years. As part of the Ultimate Spider-Man comic series, written by Brian Michael Bendis, Parker was dead, and Miles Morales took over the mantle for the fallen web-slinger.
It seems that the trailer is focusing on the beginnings of the new web-slinger. However, given that they are using the “Spider-Verse” title, there may be some confusion regarding the story. Over a year ago, “Spider-Verse” the storyline for a major Spider-Man event that brought various incarnations of Spider-Man, Ben Rielly, Spider-Gwen and others together.
Judging by what we have seen, that may not be the storyline they are using. Aside from that, the colors are vibrant and looks amazing in design. Shameik Moore of Netflix’s The Get Down as the voice of Miles Morales. Mahershala Ali and Brian Tyree Henry will voice Aaron and Jefferson Davis, the thieving brothers who become crucial figures in Morales’ rise to become the beloved web-slinger. Liev Schreiber will voice the main villain of the movie, which is directed by Rodney Rothman, Peter Ramsey, director of Rise of the Guardians, and Bob Perischetti, who wrote the latest adaptation of The Little Prince that Netflix released in 2016. Chris Miller and Phil Lord serve as producers, while only Lord has a screenwriting credit.
