Today Sony Pictures Entertainment released the official trailer for the upcoming animated film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and the trailer is deadly good.

The trailer shows a movie that appears to be as comedic and dramatic as one would want a Spider-Man film to be. This film might also be as critically successful as 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming, but unlike that movie, the main character here is not Peter Parker but Miles Morales.

Morales is an Afro-Latino teenager (first introduced in a comic storyline from 2011) and is the first non-White iteration of the beloved webslinger. Morales reveals in the trailer that “There another’s universe. It looks and sounds like yours (ours) but it’s not.” His story takes place in this other universe.

The trailer presents an older and experienced Peter Parker who is still Spider-Man and still has financial problems. Parker is voiced by Jake Johnson (from the TV show New Girl) and becomes a mentor to Morales. The relationship seems like it will be very hilarious and just as dangerous.

Footage also shows that Morales will have to deal with the conflict of his father being a cop who isn’t a fan of Peter Parker’s Spider-Man. He’ll have two opposing father figures. Also, his father seems to be a scene-stealer and is a hilarious character who masterfully embarrasses his son like all loving parents do. This is a relatable universe.

Like the father, the movie doesn’t seem one-note at all. There seems to be complexity to everything and everyone. Also, the visuals are spectacular. The movie looks like it’s a comic book placed onto the big screen. Viewers can glimpse an explosion that has an explosion bubble that reads, “BOOM.”

There’s also a diversity of colors in the trailer. It’s not only dark or bright. The lighting changes. The most exciting moment of the trailer though might be the reveal of Spider-Gwen who debuted in a 2015 comic storyline and comes from a universe where love interest Gwen Stacy was bitten by a radioactive spider instead of Peter Parker.

Her costume is cool and some may argue her appearance should have never been revealed.  Though this reveal adds to the scope of the movie. It’s not called Spider-Man: Miles Morales but Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. The appearance of Spider-Gwen reminds people that this movie is dealing with multiple universes which means that there might be even more Spider-people who appear in the film. This reminder is just as important as this trailer’s focus on Morales.

As the trailer ends, Morales asks Parker, “how many more Spider-people are there?” Parker replies, “save it for Comic-Con.” This might just be a fourth wall breaking joke. It could also be a hint that more Spider-people will be revealed at San Diego Comic-Con this summer in July. It’s possible.

The film is includes Phil Lord and Christopher Miller as producers and Lord as its writer. Key voice actors include Shameik Moore as Miles Morales, Brian Tyree Henry as Miles’s father and Hailee Steinfeld as Spider-Gwen. Others include Mahershala Ali, Lily Tomlin, Liev Schreiber and Luna Lauren Velez.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse slings into theatres December 14, 2018, the same day as the Peter Jackson produced film Mortal Engines. Also, the next week Bumblebee rolls into theatres and also features Steinfeld in a role. Each of these movies has had a trailer this week but the trailer for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse has been the most entertaining from beginning to end.
