There simply is not enough to say about ‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’ right now, with all of the early positive reviews coming our way, and every clip and trailer being released looking incredible. My only hope is that Sony is not ruining the movie for fans by releasing too much content ahead of time (which they have done to ‘Spider-Man’ movies in the past), and yet I cannot help but watch any and all clips they release in anticipation of the December 14th premiere of the film.
The latest clip has Miles Morales following his new mentor Peter Parker as they steal a briefcase from a lab, with Miles sporting what appears to be a child’s Spider-Man Halloween costume. As they flee with the briefcase, Peter uses the crisis to teach Miles how to websling, claiming that learning under pressure is the best way to learn. Of course, their escape is cut short by the arrival of a new Spider person who turns out to be none other than Spider-Woman (aka Spider-Gwen), who seems to know Miles even though she claims she is from another alternate world. She literally leaves them hanging (as she had strung them up by her webs) and takes the briefcase to end the clip, leaving us wondering how Miles could possibly know her and Peter would not, and also what the deal is with this briefcase. Check the clip out for yourself below:

The animation looks great, the voice-acting is spot-on, and like everything else we’ve seen from the film, this just makes me all the more excited for the movie to actually premiere, and adds even more questions about what exactly is going on in the film. Do you have any theories into how Spider-Gwen fits into the plot? Or what the briefcase could be? (one theory of mine, could it be Miles’s Spider suit?) Feel free to share your ideas and thoughts in the comments below!
