We’ve known for some time that, despite Spider-Man’s existence in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, that Sony wasn’t ready to let Marvel Studios have complete control over their intellectual property. In addition to the VenomVerse films (which currently includes Venom and Silver & Black), they’ve also been hard at work on an animated Spider-Man tale titled Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.
Late last year, we got our first look at the film, and despite my own personal cynicism, it managed to look like a pretty exciting film. Between its unique, stop-motion-esque, colorful aesthetic, along with Miles Morales seemingly serving as the lead, it was a bold new direction for the films.
Now, according to FandomWire, there’s at least one more reason to be interested. According to the outlet, not only will Peter Parker be in the film, but he will be voiced by 13 Hours and Jack Ryan star John Krasinski, who is likely best known for his role as Jim Halpert on the American version of The Office. Perhaps most interestingly, this means that Peter Parker will (unsurprisingly) be a lot older than we’ve ever seen him in a film, which is pretty cool.
Below is the official synopsis for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse:
“Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, the creative minds behind The Lego Movie and 21 Jump Street, bring their unique talents to a fresh vision of a different Spider-Man Universe, with a groundbreaking visual style that’s the first of its kind. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse introduces Brooklyn teen Miles Morales, and the limitless possibilities of the Spider-Verse, where more than one can wear the mask.”
Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse hits theaters on December 14, 2018.
