Screengrab of the Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse trailer starring Shameik Moore as the voice of Miles Morales

Miles Morales Is Ready for His Big-Screen Debut in the Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Trailer

Miles Morales is coming to theaters, everyone! We just have to get through the rest of 2017 and 2018 to see it.

Sony Animation has dropped the teaser trailer for Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse, an animated Spider-Verse movie that will hit theaters in time for Christmas 2018. True to the Ultimate Spider-Man comics, it appears that Peter Parker is dead in this movie (note the tombstone), and so Miles Morales has taken up his mantle.

But what about the plot? “Enter a universe where more than one wears the mask,” Sony Animation teased on Twitter, and the trailer itself ends with the question, “Wait, so how many of us are there?” Given those two teases, and the fact that Spider-Verse is in the title, I think it’s safe to assume that this will be a multiverse movie, where Miles must unite the many Spider-Man incarnations against a shared threat. Sony previously indicated that this movie will not connect to the live-action Marvel Cinematic Universe, where Tom Holland is currently playing Peter Parker, so don’t necessarily expect a Holland voice cameo. But hopefully we can expect some awesome multiverse cameos. Spider Gwen? Silk? Spider-Ham? Bring it on.

Some of the shots in this trailer look super gorgeous. I actually gasped at that shot where Miles appears to be falling between worlds, and so far I am loving the way they animated his arachno-acrobatics. (Though if you didn’t like the frequent cut-shots in The LEGO Movie, this one might leave you similarly queasy.) I’ll have to see a trailer with some actual dialogue to get a better sense of the feel and plot, but so far I’m pretty excited about this one.

What do you all think, though?

Shameik Moore (Shaolin Fantastic in The Get Down) will voices Miles, and the movie will be produced by The LEGO Movie‘s Phil Lord and Chris Miller. Directed by Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey, and Rodney Rothman from a script by Phil Lord, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse will open on December 14, 2018.
