Peter Parker is set to return to the MCU in Avengers: Infinity War, but he’s not the only version of the wall-crawler hitting screens this year. Spidey’s first theatrically-released animated movie, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, arrives in December and features Miles Morales as Peter’s successor to the Spider-mantle.
The other day at CinemaCon, some new footage of Into the Spider-Verse materialized and revealed the trio of supervillains that will appear in the film. According to JoBlo.com, the footage featured the Ultimate version of Norman Osborn’s Green Goblin, Aaron Davis/The Prowler and Wilson Fisk AKA Kingpin.
The first two of those aren’t that surprising. After all, the Prowler from the Ultimate universe, where Miles originated, is the criminal uncle of the second Spider-Man. Mahershala Ali was also previously announced to be playing the character.
Green Goblin, meanwhile, is a major a part of the Ultimate Spider-Man mythos. Unlike the Norman Osborn of Earth-616, however, the Ultimate Osborn transforms into a hulking monster instead of just wearing a Halloween mask. The comics often present Goblin and Kingpin as rivals, too, as they both want to run New York. The fact that Fisk is also involved in the film suggests Miles might be caught in the middle of a battle between the crime bosses.
Dope‘s Shameik Moore will star as the teenage Morales, Brian Tyree Henry is his father Jeffrey and Jake Johnson (Jurassic World) voices the original Spidey, Peter Parker. Liev Schreiber will also feature in an as-yet unspecified role. Though, given what we now know, it seems like a solid bet that he could be playing Norman Osborn.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse swings into cinemas on December 14th and following the showing of this footage at CinemaCon, we imagine it’s just a matter of time now before the next trailer arrives. Stay tuned!
