Sony and Marvel have released a trailer for an unexpected new Spider-Man movie titled Spider-Man: Into The Spiderverse. Unlike the other big-screen Spidey flicks, this one is animated, and stars Miles Morales, who started life in the Ultimate Universe but has since crossed over into various other Marvel comic realities.

The trailer, which you can watch below, is incredibly stylish, with vibrant colors and iconic Spider-Man motifs from start to finish. There's almost a sci-fi, Blade Runner-like quality to the way the city is presented and, at one point, comic book visuals quickly flash in and out of a chase sequence--it's incredibly cool.

The inclusion of "Spiderverse" in the title may have tipped you off to one of the other big hooks for this movie: there's more than one Spider-Man. From the looks of it, Miles will be interacting with not just Peter Parker, but other Spideys too.

Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, the duo behind The Lego Movie and 21 Jump Street are the creative team behind Spider-Man: Into The Spiderverse.

As noted in the trailer's YouTube description, the duo are attempting to "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." It continues: "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."

Spider-Man: Into The Spiderverse will hit theaters in Christmas 2018. Lord and Miller were previously working on Star Wars spin-off Solo: A Star Wars Story but the pair were replaced by Ron Howard in June.
