Fans who’ve been waiting for the introduction of Miles Morales, a black Spider-Man, and Gwen Stacy’s “Spider Gwen” will be served by seeing them on screen here, hopefully leading to seeing them again in other films and iterations.

Sony says: Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, the creative minds behind The Lego Movie and 21 Jump Street, bring their unique talents to a fresh vision of a different Spider-Man Universe, with a groundbreaking visual style that’s the first of its kind. Spider-Man™: Into the Spider-Verse introduces Brooklyn teen Miles Morales, and the limitless possibilities of the Spider-Verse, where more than one can wear the mask.
