Back in June, we got the first look at Sony’s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, the upcoming Spidey film that’s already shaping up to be one of the most visually ambitious animated movies of the year. We learned it would feature a seasoned Peter Parker (voiced by Jake Johnson) crossing over into the universe of Miles Morales (Shameik Moore) to mentor the younger Spidey. Gwen Stacy’s Ghost Spider (formerly Spider-Gwen) also made a brief appearance.
Now that the second full-length trailer for the film has landed, we know that’s only the beginning. When they said “Spider-Verse,” they meant at least six Spider-heroes: Morales, Parker, Stacy (Hailee Steinfeld), Peni Parker (Kimiko Glenn), Spider-Man Noir (Nicolas Cage), and even Spider-Ham (John Mulaney) who, tragically, is somehow not the same as Spider-Pig!
It looks as though the “Super-Collider” that brings the radioactive squad together in Miles’ universe — introduced in this trailer by Kingpin, aka Wilson Fisk (Liev Schreiber, alas) — is going to end up threatening the multiverse itself. That’s what always happens when you mess with the fabric of space-time — come on, team, this is 101-level stuff here — even when you aren’t trusting a supervillain in the process. Here’s hoping they shut it down before all those “so-so popsicles” melt.
