There is more than one Spider-Man -- and Sony's animated film, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is setting out to prove it. Earlier today, a new trailer for Into the Spider-Verse was released, revealing more information about the movie's story. When an experiment with a super collider goes haywire, a whole slew of Spider-Men and Women are thrust into Miles Morales' reality.
These characters all come from alternate universes where they are their reality's version of Spider-Man. Together, they form an amazing (pun intended) team to defeat the bad guys and return to their respective homeworlds. Along with this new trailer, Sony also released a new poster of the film, one that highlights the many Spider-characters that will grace the screen.
The new poster brings almost all of the Spider-Men and Women from the movie in one glorious moment as they swing together over a New York City sky. Miles Morales' Spider-Man is at the center, and he's accompanied by his mentor, the regular Peter Parker, overhead. Gwen Stacy's Spider-Gwen, who is already a fan-favorite of her own, is also there, along with the detective Spider-Man Noir.
Finally, the poster also gives us our first official look at Peni Parker's SP//dr mech suit. For those who are unfamiliar with the character, Peni Parker is a young teenager who pilots a mech suit along with a genetically modified spider. While the other characters on the poster greatly resemble their comic book counterparts, Peni's robotic armor is actually very different than it is in the source material. In the comics, the SP//dr suit is sleeker, and its colors of red and grey are mostly muted.
However, Into the Spider-Verse's take on the suit is bulkier. Instead of a head that closely resembles the Spider-Man mask, this version of the SP//dr appears to be more robot-like, and perhaps even friendlier. What's more, its bright red and blue color scheme makes it a more colorful fit in an animated film that appears to put an important focus on texture, animation and color.
These characters all stand mighty on their own -- but together, they make for one seriously spectacular super-team.
