Into the Spider-Verse: Miles meets the rest of the Spider People in Easter egg-packed new clip

We're finally just hours away from the first public screenings of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, but if the wait still feels unbearable, Sony has released another clip for you to pick over. 

Anticipation is high for the multiverse-spanning, groundbreakingly animated feature film debut of Miles Morales thanks to great trailers and great reviews, and the studio has been happy to pile on to that with as many chunks of teaser footage as possible. This one in particular is definitely worth watching, not just because it features every Spider-person in the main cast, but because it's also packed with Easter eggs. 

In the clip, Miles (Shameik Moore), Peter (Jake Johnson), and Gwen (Hailee Steinfeld) have arrived at the home of Peter's Aunt May (Lily Tomlin), which is to say the Aunt May from Miles' universe, not the Aunt May from this particular Peter's universe. They basically don't know where else to go now that the multiverse has gone crazy (plus there are other reasons we'll leave out because...spoilers), and when they arrive May calmly leads them to her Peter's old Spider-hideout.

The Spider-cave (or Spider-shed, if you prefer) is full of various Spider-suits and all manner of Spider-gear, including the legendary Spider-mobile, but it's also full of other Spider-heroes. Watch as Miles, Peter, and Gwen meet Spider-Man Noir (Nicolas Cage), Peni Parker (Kimiko Glenn), and Peter Porker, aka Spider-Ham (John Mulaney).

Clips like this and loads of critical praise aren't the only reason Into the Spider-Verse is generating so much buzz. It's not even out yet, but the film is already starting to build serious momentum in the awards race. Film critics societies in New York and Los Angeles have already handed the film Best Animated Feature honors, making it a serious contender for the Golden Globe next month. If that happens, it's very possible an Oscar isn't far behind.

With its crowd-pleasing storytelling (trust us; you'll see), incredible animation and bright new take on big-screen superheroes, Into the Spider-Verse might be on track to become the most decorated comic book movie in recent memory. 

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is in theaters everywhere tomorrow.
