New Photo From SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE and New Spider-Characters Revealed
Sony Pictures recently dropped a new photo for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse offering fans a new look at Miles Morales, Peter Parker and Spider-Gwen. The studio recently had a big presentation for the film at Comic-Con where they showed off an extended cut of footage.
The crowd in Hall H went crazy for that footage and I had a smile on my face from ear to ear as it played out. This movie looks like so much damn fun and I love the unique visual style. I'm actually more excited for this film than I was for Spider-Man: Homecoming.
There were also some new characters that were revealed in the footage including Kimiko Glenn (Orange Is the New Black) as SP//dr aka Peni Parker; comedian John Mulaney as Spider-Ham; and the previously revealed Nicolas Cage as Spider-Man Noir.
The film follows Miles as he tries to learn how to put his new powers to use — with a little guidance from Peter Parker himself. And although the two may share web-slinging abilities, they’re still radically different: Miles grew up in Brooklyn, not Queens, and he’s only 13 years old. “And he’s got both his parents alive,” Miller quips. “Which doesn’t sound like much, but that’s very unique to Spider-People.”
The older middle-aged Peter Parker in the movie will be voiced by New Girl star Jake Johnson, Liev Schreiber is playing the larger-than-life crime lord Kingpin; Hailee Steinfeld will play spunky, free-spirited Spider-Gwen; Mahershala Ali will provide the voice for Miles’ uncle Aaron; Atlanta star Brian Tyree Henry will voice Miles’ father Jefferson. Rounding out the cast is Luna Lauren Velez as Miles’ mother Rio, and Lily Tomlin will be Aunt May.
The film will be released on December 14th.
