Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse Trailer Reveals Star-Studded Voice Cast

It doesn't get more Marvel-ous than this. 

Sony has just dropped the first full-length trailer for the impending animated feature Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, directed by ex-Solo: A Star Wars Story directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller. 

Beyond the eye-widening visual style, sleek scene-to-scene transitions, and obvious vivacity the trailer carries as it follows friendly Brooklyn teen Miles Morales (voiced by The Get Down and Dope's Shameik Moore) taking on the Spider-Man mantle from a once-presumed-dead Peter Parker, it also confirms a star-studded voice cast — including Oscar-winning actor Mahershala Ali as Miles' uncle Aaron, New Girl's Jake Johnson as Miles' reluctant mentor Peter Parker, Bumblebee star Hailee Steinfeld as the spunky Spider-Gwen, Liev Schreiber as the crime lord Kingpin, Atlanta actor Brian Tyree Henry as Miles' father Jefferson, Dexter alum Luna Lauren Velez as Miles' mother Rio, and legendary actress Lily Tomlin as Aunt May. 

Miles Morales finally getting his own film in the extended Marvel film universe is sure to please countless fans, who have long hoped for that to happen. The Brian Michael Bendis and Sara Pichelli-created comic character made his on-the-page debut in 2011, in an installment of Ultimate Fallout
, which tracks the weird and wild happenings of an alternate universe — the same seen in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, where more than one person can don a single superhero's costume and crime-fighting persona. Though Ultimate Fallout ended its run in 2015, Miles — and fans' love for him — stuck around. 

The cherries on top of this already tasty movie sundae (we're going to spot this convoluted metaphor while we're ahead) are the supporting voice cast for Into the Spider-Verse. Alongside Moore, a top pick to voice Miles even before he was officially confirmed for the part, the entire roster is comprised of recognizable names sure to pull in attention from all corners of Hollywood. We've got some Academy Award winners, some comedy stars, two standout young talents, and a smattering of dramatic actors, a solid mix for a sure-to-be-stellar movie. Seriously, think about it: Lily Tomlin voicing Aunt May ... in a movie centered on Miles Morales... where Peter tells Miles, "Don't do it like me, do it like you"? Signed, sealed, delivered we are Sony's completely. 

Take a look at the wickedly cool, web-slinging Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse trailer above. 

At the time the trailer dropped, directors Lord and Miller gushed about the film's voice cast, story, and unique visual style. "We are lucky to have such an amazing cast of funny, genuine creative souls to populate the Spider-verse," the pair said in a joint statement (via Entertainment Weekly). "They have generous minds and great big hearts. And they have very talented throats. Which is where their delightful voices come from. We can't wait for the world to see Miles Morales on the big screen. He's such a fun and exciting new character, and telling his story through a revolutionary visual style makes for a totally fresh cinematic experience that, if we may say so, is freaking amazing."

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse will swing onto the silver screen on December 14.
