Holy Spider-Man, Batman, I had no idea the upcoming animated Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse movie was going to look this incredible. But this new trailer is gobsmackingly awesome. I am gobsmacked, thoroughly and completely.
Blending various Spideys—Peter Parker, Miles Morales, Spider-Ham, Peni Parker, Gwen Stacy—from across the Spider-Man multiverse, the movie is a story about all these different iterations of our hero coming together, with Miles Morales at the center.
It looks funny, the animation is drop-dead gorgeous, and the story (from what we can tell so far) looks great.
This means we not only got the best Spider-Man video game of all time in 2018, we might be getting the best animated Spider-Man movie as well.
Honestly, this might be better than a lot of the live-action Spider-Man films, though I won’t go about counting chickens before they’re hatched. Or spiders before they’ve hatched, as the case may be. Okay, spiders hatching is super creepy actually so let’s not think about that any more than we have to.
I’m excited to see how this all plays out, especially with all the potential for classic super-villains we see briefly in the trailer. This has just rocketed to the top of my most-anticipated films for 2018 list (which, yeah, I need to write that list.) That’s either good marketing or it’s one of those movies that markets itself.
