I ain’t gonna lie. I was one of the many doubtful fans out there when the then-untitled Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse was first announced. The idea of Sony pushing out an animated Spider-Man film in conjunction with the character’s involvement in the MCU? We were already sick of the character in his own films at the time, so why would we give a crap about an animated film? Plus, as it stood, I could only imagine it being a very standard animated film. Yes, Phil Lord and Chris Miller were involved, but not in a directorial role, so i wasn’t holding my breath.

And then that first teaser dropped some months ago. It was a wholly unique experience, showing off a stop-motion-esque, vibrant animation style that would occasionally have flashes of comic book inspiration. Plus, in this world, there were many Spider-Men, for some reason. This new trailer from Sony takes it to the next level, giving us an idea of the life of our new hero, Miles Morales. Before we know it, he’s a mentee of the one and only Peter Parker.

Below is the official synopsis (well, sort of) 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.”

All in all, this trailer delivers on the promises teased in that first teaser, and the film looks so unique that, even if we were sick of the character, it would be different enough to justify a watch (also, Spider-Gwen!). What do you think of this new trailer? Let us know your thoughts down below!
