Peter Parker is on a mission in the “Spider-Man: No Way Home” trailer, released in April of this year. The newest Spider-Man will be struggling with the return of his archenemy, Mysterio, who it looks like was rescued from one of Stark Industries’ robot cars.
This all comes after the events of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, in which Venom, Spider-Gwen and the Sinister Six helped Spidey defeat the Green Goblin. Judging by the trailer, the rich scientist Michael Keaton will be back to torment him yet again.
The animated movie, from Oscar-nominated director Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey and Rodney Rothman, will also introduce Miles Morales, the new take on the web-slinger, in what is already shaping up to be a blockbuster.
Venom has more than a passing resemblance to Miles, the superhero of African-American and Latino descent. Originally created in the 1960s by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, Morales in recent years has won over new fans after the webbed hero was reimagined in another spin-off animated film.
The new film, due to be released in May 2019, is being called “Richest new Spider-Man” as the franchise takes a page from Marvel Studios. The Disney-owned studio has been using its cash reserves to form a stronger relationship with Sony, revitalizing Marvel films and launching Marvel-related shows on Netflix and Hulu.
“You may have seen Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse,” Peter Parker said in the trailer. “And now, what really matters, Miles Morales — and you.”
Who was Kraven the Hunter?
The trailer also hints at other possible storylines including an Odysseus-like tale about a young Peter Parker aboard the stranded Spidey ship called Terror.
Speaking in a hound’s growl, Spider-Man spouts “I’m Peter Parker in a world of Kravens.”
It’s not yet known if Sony’s deal with Disney would mean Spidey and Iron Man would cross over into one of the studio’s upcoming feature films.
In 2017, Tom Holland portrayed the young Peter Parker as he became the original superhero in “Captain America: Civil War.” He’s also played the web-slinger three times in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
