With the release date for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse now less than three weeks away, Sony looks to have already done a pretty sufficient job in getting fans hyped, but just to make sure, it seems they’ve got at least one more international trailer to share with the world.
While the marketing so far has largely focused on the diverse array of Spider-People that the multiverse adventure has to offer, this little promo gives a portion of its brief runtime to the villains, with Liev Schreiber’s Kingpin getting an ominous line before Peter Parker’s Spider-Man dukes it out with The Prowler, voiced by Mahershala Ali.
It’s a nice enough set of footage, but the Spider-Verse development this week that’s more likely to get long-time fans of the web-slinger pumped is the first reactions to the film’s early screenings, with some viewers going as far as to praise this animation as one of the best superhero movies of all-time.
Of course, trusting the opinions of a bunch of strangers on the internet is one thing, but the eye-popping visuals seen in the film’s various trailers speaks for themselves. The cast’s quirky assortment of Spider-People probably hasn’t hurt, either, when it comes to getting on fans’ good sides. As well as bringing us Shameik Moore in the lead as Miles Morales and Jake Johnson as an older Peter Parker, Spider-Verse boasts Hailee Steinfeld in the role of Spider-Gwen, Nicolas Cage as Spider-Noir, Kimiko Glenn as SP//dr, and John Mulaney as Spider-Ham.
We’ll see if this world-hopping superhero team can make good on the hype when Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse swings into theaters on December 14th.
