‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’ premieres in Los Angeles

The movie introduces a Brooklyn teen Miles Morales, and the limitless possibilities of the Spider-Verse, where anyone can wear the mask.

Based on the comic book characters created by writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Sara Pichelli in 2011, the movie centers on the adventures of African-American/Puerto Rican Brooklyn teen Miles Morales as he tries to fit in at a new private school in Manhattan.

Featuring the voices of Shameik Moore as Miles Morales, Jake Johnson as Peter Parker, Hailee Steinfeld as Spider-Gwen, Mahershala Ali as Miles’ uncle Aaron, Brian Tyree Henry as Miles’ father Jefferson, Lily Tomlin as Aunt May, Luna Lauren Velez as Miles’ mother Rio, John Mulaney as 7 Spider-Ham, Kimiko Glenn as Peni Parker, with Nicolas Cage as Spider-Man Noir, Kathryn Hahn, and Liev Schreiber as Kingpin.

A movie which explores the superhero experience from a fresh angle, it deala with larger universal themes such as coming of age, father/son relationships and brings a completely new take on Marvel’s beloved webslinging superhero, which was first introduced by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko in 1962. Featuring a diverse cast and a revolutionary approach to the classic Spider-Man mythos, it is directed by Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey and Rodney Rothman.

A film that pays homage to the classic look and feel of the comic-books, check out pictures from the film premiere below:
