Get your broom ready because we’re in for a whole mess of cobwebs, as Sony has released a new Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse trailer. The upcoming animated movie features different versions of Spider-Man from different dimensions – Peter Parker, Miles Morales, Gwen Stacy, and so on – as they join forces to fight the Kingpin and save all of their universes. Directed by Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey, and Rodney Rothman, the animated film stars Shameik Moore as Miles Morales, Jake Johnson as Peter Parker, Hailee Steinfeld as Gwen Stacy, Mahershala Ali as Aaron Davis/Prowler, Liev Schreiber as Kingpin, Lily Tomlin as Aunt May and Nicolas Cage as Noir Spider-Man. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse opens on December 14, 2018. Check out the Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse trailer below…
I have almost no interest in this movie. The Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse trailer has a very childish tone, and this seems like a movie targeted directly at kids. That’s fine; it’s just not for me. Even given that, though, I’m not really big on legacy heroes (which is what Miles Morales – who’s clearly the focus of this movie – is; in the Ultimate Universe, Peter Parker was Spider-Man, but he died, and the irradiated spider torch was passed to Miles); I think it matters who’s behind the mask of any superhero, and if you have some revolving door of characters it cheapens them all, and the hero they embody. In that respect, Into the Spider-Verse is actually a more palatable version of that notion, as it acknowledges Peter Parker as the real Spider-Man of our world (yeah, calling the 616 Marvel Universe “our world” is kind of silly, but it’s comics) and has the rest as alternate dimension Spider-people. But, then, Peter Parker sounds pretty awful in this trailer; Jake Johnson plays him like Adam Sandler pretending to be Peter Parker. And if it’s as goofy as this trailer implies, I doubt the emotional ramifications of his seeing Gwen Stacy alive will be explored. Again, that’s fine for kids, but it’s not my cup of tea. I like the idea of Liev Schreiber voicing Kingpin, though.
