From Slashfilm - December 9, 2017

Right now fans are enjoying the most recent iteration of Spider-Man played by Tom Holland being part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But Sony Pictures is still doing everything they can to milk the rights to all of the characters from the webslingers comic book universe in every other form. Theres a Venom spin-off in production right now, Silver and Black focusing on Silver Sable and Black Cat (which may launch a female Spider-Man universe), and even a Morbius the Living Vampire movie. But theres also a whole new Spider-Man on the way.

No, were not getting yet another live-action reboot of Spider-Man, but instead Sony Pictures is delivering an animated Spider-Man movie focusing on Miles Morales as your friendly nieghborhood wallcrawler. Today they announced the official title for the project to be Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, and the first trailer arrived along with it.

The animation style here is not what we were expecting, but it looks fantastic. Its almost like a big budget version of the cel animation style of Spider-Man: The New Animated Series from MTV from way back in 2003. Plus, we get confirmation that there are multiple versions of Spider-Man in this new animated universe.

In the comics, Morales gets his powers after a genetically enhanced spider at the abandoned labs of Osborn Industries ended up in the bag of his uncle Aaron Davis, a career criminal. The bite gave him super-human abilities like camouflage, increased agility, as well as some sort of stun blast, not to mention all of the signature powers of Spider-Man.

Initially, Miles Morales is reluctant to use his powers as a superhero, but he comes around after the original Spider-Man dies while trying to save his family. Its unclear just how much of Morales comic origins will be used to bring the character to life on the big screen, but its the title of this movie thats the most intriguing.
