CULVER CITY, CALIF. -- Sony Pictures Animation launched the first full trailer for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and confirmed the vocal cast joining Shameik Moore as he takes on the role of Miles Morales.
Jake Johnson is joining the cast as Miles' reluctant mentor, Peter Parker; with Liev Schreiber playing the larger-than-life crime lord Kingpin; Hailee Steinfeld playing the spunky, free-spirited Spider-Gwen; Oscar winner Mahershala Ali as Miles' influential uncle Aaron; Brian Tyree Henry playing Miles' father Jefferson; Luna Lauren Velez as Miles' mother Rio; and Lily Tomlin as Aunt May.
