The unique film delivers some new versions of the favorite webslinger that haven’t been seen before stars, Shameik Moore, as Morales alongside Hailee Steinfeld, Mahershala Ali, Jake Johnson, Liev Schreiber, Brian Tyree Henry, Luna Lauren Velez, and Lily Tomlin.
Miles Morales must juggle his high school life with his status as a superhero, as he is introduced to the “SPIDER-VERSE” where there can be more than just one Spider-Man. An absolutely gorgeous film infuses a visual style that takes full advantage of colorful imagery that reflects Miles’s fondness for graffiti and comic books. The film showcases diversity not just through the actors, but highlights the life and culture of an Afro-Latino kid from Brooklyn and reflects positive imagery of a superhero of color.
The film is directed by Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey, and Rodney Rothman, from a screenplay by Phil Lord and Rothman.
Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse hits theaters on December 14!
