Peter Parker isn't going to be the only big-screen webslinger for long. Though the original Spidey (currently played by Tom Holland) is still the live-action standard in the MCU, Parker's successor Miles Morales is finally coming to movie screens in animated form. Today we have the official title as well as the first trailer.
Called Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, the new movie will invite audiences into a unverse where "more than one wears the mask."
Directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (The Lego Movie), the film promises to explore the "limitless possibilites of the Spider-Verse." Shameik Moore (The Get Down) will voice Morales, with actors Liev Schrieber (Spotlight, X-Men Origins: Wolverine) and Mahershala Ali (Moonlight, Luke Cage) along for the ride.

The animation looks pretty fresh, but it is the title that intrigues us the most. Use of the term "Spider-Verse" specifically conjures a recent series by Marvel that had multiple Spideys, all of whom came to be because of all sorts of different scenarios. Could this mean that Miles won't be the only Spidey-sensing web-shooter we see in this film? Could Edge of the Spider-Verse favorite Spider-Gwen (from an alternate world where Gwen Stacy gets bitten) make an appearance? Time will tell, but the possibilities are endless.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse will be released on Christmas of 2018.
