The new Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse trailer has just been officially released by Sony. The trailer showcases more of the different worlds that Peter Parker and Miles Morales will come into contact with along their adventure. This means we get a better introduction to Gwen Stacy as Ghost-Spider, as well as our first real looks at Spider-Man Noir, Peni Parker, and Spider-Ham.
Along with just being a pretty spectacular trailer and setting up more of the plot then any of the previous previews have, it also gives us a better understanding of the the world where Miles lives and Peter gets zapped to thanks to an experiment conducted by the Kingpin.
While Peter does come off as be pretty insulting while trying to explain multiverse theory to Miles with a pile of french fries, there’s one aspect of Miles’ home universe that is even more mind-blowing than inter-dimensional travel. Specifically, the prices at the Greek diner Peter and Miles swing by to grab some food.
Seriously! These prices are crazy. If that’s what a dinner in Brooklyn looks like, then Times Square must be horrifying. That is a ridiculous amount of money for what looks like a pretty basic dinner. $11,000 for three burgers, $7,500 for two souvlaki, $4,500 for three sides of fries, $3,000 for two drinks, and straight up $2,000 for a side of tahini. That comes out to a grand total of $30,000 for their meal. By our calculations, that is entirely too much money for that meal. Which means one of three possibilities:
1 – Monetary amounts for the US Dollar in this universe are comparable to the Japanese Yen of our world.
2 – Kingpin has fiscally throttled this version of New York City so thoroughly that he can jack up the prices to astronomical levels and everyone else is just kind of rolling with it.
3 – The Parker Luck is so unlucky, any universe where Peter shows up is going to be way out of his price range. Not that he had any cash on him in the first place, mind you.
Of course, even if the food prices of this world have been jacked up to a point where even our New York City would start to revolt, we still can’t wait to see more of this slick and colorful corner of the ever expanding Marvel Multiverse.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, starring Shameik Moore, Jake Johnson, Hailee Steinfeld, Nicolas Cage, Kimiko Glenn, John Mulaney, Brian Tyree Henry, Marershala Ali, Lily Tomlin, Luna Lauren Velez and Liev Schreiber is scheduled to premiere Dec. 21.
