Watch the first trailer for ‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’

The animated movie stars The Get Down's Shameik Moore

The first trailer for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse has been released.

The animated movie promises to introduce fans to a whole new universe of Spider-Man characters, including Spider-Gwen.

The film stars Shameik Moore – who has previously starred in Netflix’s The Get Down – as Miles Morales. Morales is a teenager from Brooklyn who realises he has the same powers as Spider-Man. You can watch the first trailer below.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse also stars Pitch Perfect’s Hailee Steinfeld as an alternate version of Gwen Stacy. The rest o the film’s cast includes Liev Schreiber as villain Wilson Fisk aka Kingpin, Mahershala Ali as Prowler and Jake Johnson as Peter Parker.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse will arrive in cinemas on December 14.

Last year’s Spider-Man: Homecoming took $3.7 million in ticket sales in South Korea alone on its first day of showings, which increased to $10.4million through Friday. This is a 157% increase on the takings from 2014’s The Amazing Spider-man 2, which starred Andrew Garfield.

Meanwhile, some allegedly ‘leaked’ artwork for Avengers 4 has given fans a glimpse into what the super hero team could look like in the next movie.

The artwork features Iron Man and Captain America at the front, along with the Hulk, Black Widow, Thor and more, although the artwork has not been confirmed as official.

The sequel is set to arrive in UK cinemas in April 2019, with Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige saying it “will bring things you’ve never seen in superhero films: a finale.”
