From Tobey Maguire to Andrew Garfield and Tom Holland, cinema has had plenty of Spider-Men within the last couple of decades — but none like this. Sony’s animation division has been beavering away on Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, a feature film that looks set to play with all the areas of Spider-lore that previous big-screen comic adaptations haven’t touched.

Here the protagonist isn’t Peter Parker but Miles Morales — a young black kid from Brooklyn with his own distinctive Spider-suit. But he’s not the only wall-crawler involved – the brand new trailer teases a plot involving an adult Peter getting Miles up to speed on how to fight crime in New York. If the phrase ‘Spider-Verse’ hadn’t tipped you off, we’re talking multiple dimensions, multiple incarnations of the superhero — and yes, Spider-Gwen is here too, voiced by Hailee Steinfeld.

If all that wasn’t exciting enough, Into the Spider-Verse is looking set to be a visual treat with a dazzling cel-shaded art style, blending 2D and 3D textures, comic book text scrawls, and flashes of acid-bright colour. The voice cast boasts top talent too, with Jake Johnson as Peter, Shameik Moore as Miles, Liev Schreiber as Kingpin, Mahershala Ali as Miles’ uncle Aaron, and Lily Tomlin as Aunt May. Throw in Phil Lord and Chris Miller as producers, and this is looking very exciting. In short, it’s the Spider-Man film we didn’t think we needed, and now absolutely want.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is hitting UK cinemas on 14 December.
