Sony Bringing ‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’ to New York Comic Con

Panel will promote studio’s highly anticipated animated take on an alternate universe separate from the MCU that swings into theatres December 14.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s animated feature set in an alternate universe from Sony’s other Spider-Man properties and Marvel’s MCU, is coming to New York Comic Con. According to a studio video tweeted this morning, Miles Morales’ Ultimate Spider-Man, Gwen Stacy’s Spider-Gwen and Peter Parker’s Spider-Man will be on-hand at the upcoming October 4-7 NYCC event on a panel promoting the film, which will be released in theatres December 14.

Sony Pictures Animation’s highly-anticipated film, which blends their in-house CG animation style with traditional hand-drawn comic book techniques inspired by Marvel artist Sara Pichelli, follows Morales, a Marvel Comics character created by writer Brian Michael Bendis and Pichelli who first appeared in comic form in 2011. Morales (voiced by Shameik Moore) gains superpowers after being bitten by a radioactive spider, and must learn how to fit into a world already containing multiple Spider-People, including Stacy (Hailee Steinfeld) and a “jaded” Parker (Jake Johnson).

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is directed by Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey, and Rodney Rothman from a screenplay by Lord. In addition to Moore and Steinfeld, Mahershala Ali, Liev Schreiber, Brian Tyree Henry, Luna Lauren Velez, and Lily Tomlin round out the voice cast.
