Look, when a decidedly Dad-ish Peter Parker becomes your Spider-Mentor, there are going to be certain things that you learn as you go along. Like, say, how to avoid death from calamitous falls/angry scientists with laser guns through the power of webs.
In the wake of yesterday's review embargo on Into the Spider-Verse (which is, apparently, very good!), Sony has released a new extended clip from the film that sees... well, actually a lot of things happening.
Miles and Peter breaking into an Alchemax and trying to blend in despite walking around in bright red and blue Spider-suits. Miles learning how to webswing for the first time from his incredibly bad teacher. And, of course, the grand arrival of the radioactive (and soon to be movie-starring) Spider-Gwen! But even with so much going on, this entire clip is just a delight to watch.
It’s gorgeous and stylish – like the adorable little bonk graphic when Miles chucks a bagel back at one of the pursuing scientists, which literally just says “Bagel!” – the banter between Pete and Miles is great, and then you have Gwen’s incredibly rocking entrance, complete with wailing guitars that are presumably a nod to her band-member life as part of the Mary Janes on her own world. It’s so fun. I can’t wait to see more of this movie.
We won’t have to wait too long to see more – Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse opens on 12th December. But when it looks this good, that might as well be a lifetime away!
