Animated Spider-Man Trailer Puts Miles Morales in the Spotlight

There's a new webslinger in town.

For the first time on the big-screen, fan favorite comic book character Miles Morales is taking on the Spider-Man mantle, and now the first trailer for his film, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, shows him in action.  In Miles' universe, more than one person can wear the Spider-Man mask. A quick image in the trailer shows what appears to be original Spider-Man Peter Parker's grave (in the comics, Miles took up the Spider-Man identidy after Peter Parker's death).

Shameik Moore voices Miles, who was first introduced in the comics in 2011. Liev Schreiber also stars in the film, which is produced by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, with a script by Lord. Bob Persichetti Peter Ramsey and Rodney Rothman direct the Sony Pictures Animation project. The trailer debuted at CCXP in Brazil.

The film opens Dec. 14, 2018.
