A new promo video for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse introduces Spider-Ham’s own theme song.
Spider-Ham, aka Peter Porker, is just one of the many spider-heroes who are featured in the upcoming animated film. Voiced by comedian John Mulaney, Spider-Ham comes from a world that’s even more cartoonish than the others, where every Marvel hero is an anthropomorphic animal. First appearing in 1980, Spider-Ham has risen in prominence in recent years, appearing regularly in comics such as Spider-Verse and Web Warriors.
In a newly released promo for the film, it turns out that Spider-Ham even has his own variant of the classic 60s Spider-Man theme. The song doesn’t shy away from the fact that it’s a bit weird he’s a pig fighting crime, but still argues that he’s a hero all the same. The video also highlights his wackier animation and fighting style, where he incorporates a giant mallet into his battle with the Scorpion.
Directed by Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey and Rodney Rothman, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse stars Shameik Moore, Brian Tyree Henry, Jake Johnson, Mahershala Ali, Hailee Steinfeld, Liev Schreiber, Luna Lauren Velez, Lily Tomlin, Nicolas Cage, John Mulaney and Kimiko Glenn. The film opens on December 14.
