The idea that there’s going to be an animated Spider-Man movie featuring a Spider-Man who isn’t Peter Parker may not seem unusual to anyone versed in the comic book world, but to general audiences the sight of Spidey pulling off his mask to reveal Mile Morales could have have been a major nightmare for the Sony marketing department. However, this clever teaser trailer for Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse actually turns that confusion into a benefit, and introduces the concept of multiple wall-crawlers in a way that should pique interest.
Plus, it looks amazing. Odd, quirky animation style, but one that was winning us over by the end of the trailer.
Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse – produced by The LEGO Movie directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller – is set for a US release in December 2018, but there’s no official UK release date yet.
