Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse villains and Peter Parker casting revealed

Tom Holland’s Spider-Man makes his return to the big screen today in Avengers: Infinity War, but it isn’t the only Spidey movie we have to look forward to this year as Sony unleashes its animated movie Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

During Sony’s presentation at CinemaCon this week, it was revealed that the movie will feature three villains – The Prowler, The Kingpin, and Ultimate Green Goblin.

The Prowler is being voiced by Mahershala Ali, while Liev Schreiber (X-Men Origins: Wolverine) is also confirmed to be voicing one of the villains, although it’s unclear whether it will be Kingpin or the Goblin.

Meanwhile, in one other piece of news, New Girl and Jurassic World star Jake Johnson is set to lend his voice to a middle-aged Peter Parker.

It’s Miles Morales’ Turn in New Look at ‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’

  • The Wrap
Miles Morales may be a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe someday, but in the meantime, Sony will be giving the black-and-red Spider-Man his big screen debut with the animated “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse,” with the film’s first extended loook on Monday.

Writers Phil Lord and Chris Miller introduced very rough footage showing a super-charming Morales at CinemaCon. Morales dons the Spider-Man mask in a comic world where several people are empowered to do the same.

In addition to impressive fight sequences and a hot soundtrack, the “Lego Movie” team also showed some heart for “Spider-Verse” — in the form of Miles’ doting father, an NYPD officer voiced by Mahershala Ali.

“He’s half Puerto Rican and half African American, he’s the product of a happy and alive family,” Lord and Miller told to the crowd at the Forum Theater at Caesar’s Palace about Morales, making references to Peter Parker’s unfortunate family situation.

“It’s really true that anyone can wear the mask,” said Shameik Moore, who voices Miles.

Created by Brian Michael Bendis and Sara Pichelli, Miles Morales was introduced to the comic book world in 2011 as part of the Ultimate Marvel universe, a timeline separate from the main Marvel world. In that series, the Ultimate incarnation of Peter Parker was killed off, with Miles stepping in as the new New York webslinger. After the Ultimate Universe ended in 2015, Miles joined the main Marvel universe as the new protector of the Big Apple, as the main timeline’s Peter Parker took on villains around the world.

Venom” is the first in a series of planned “Spider-Man” spinoffs that Sony plans to release in coming years, including the animated Miles Morales film “Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse,” due out December 14, and the Silver Sable/Black Cat spinoff “Silver & Black,” which has Gina Prince-Bythewood attached as director and is slated to be released next year.

However, those Spidey-spinoffs are unlikely to be connected to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Last summer during the “Spider-Man: Homecoming” press tour, Amy Pascal told journalists that “Venom” will take place “in the same world

” as the McU. But Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige fairly decisively shut that down, saying in a separate interview that “there is no plan for Venom in the McU. It’s a Sony Project.”

Liev Schreiber talks Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse animated movie

Following Peter Parker’s exploits in Marvel StudiosAvengers: Infinity War, Sony will be passing the baton to Miles Morales later this year for the animated movie Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

“It was actually the animation team,” said Schreiber when asked what drew him to the project. “The guys who are working on it, I saw their work and said, ‘Wow! These guys are special.’ And it is. It’s going to be pretty special, from what I’ve seen so far. And I haven’t seen much, but it’s pretty special. They’re super-talented. … That’s what I love about it. But it also is anamorphic … ohh

Tom Hardy's Venom Will Not Return in Animated Spider-Man Movie
Despite a recent rumored casting story, Tom Hardy will not return to voice Eddie Brock in Sony's upcoming Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse animated movie. Hardy, who is set to play the classic Marvel Comics character in the upcoming Venom live-action movie, was said to reprise his role and provide the voice for the character in Spider-Verse. But an official rep from Sony directly reached out and confirmed that this isn't going to be the case. Not only is Hardy not going to be featured, but Venom is said to not be a part of the upcoming story at all. Sorry to fans of violent alien symbiotes.

It was also recently rumored that John Krasinski (The Office, 13 Hours) would be providing the voice of Peter Parker in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. That's also not happening. However, as revealed in the teaser trailer for the movie, Peter Parker will have a role to play,

John Krasinski To Play Peter Parker In Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse

As you surely know, there’s quite a lot going on with the Spider-Man property right now. Of course, Peter Parker himself is swinging around the Marvel Cinematic Universe with his next appearance set to be in Avengers: Infinity War. Beyond that, though, we’ve also got some stuff coming down the pipeline from Sony. Namely, Venom and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

The latter has been making headlines lately with some interesting reports, and though it’s still pretty far off, the project is certainly shaping up to be something that Spidey fans are going to want to check out. And that’s because after hearing that Tom Hardy may swing by to voice Venom in the pic (it’s unclear if it’ll be just as a fun easter egg, or if there’s actually some kind of connection between Into the Spider-Verse and Eddie Brock’s standalone outing

Beyond that, though, we’ve also got some stuff coming down the pipeline from Sony. Namely, Venom and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

Not to mention that Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who are working on Into the Spider-Verse, have already confirmed that it’ll be its own thing. Apparently, though, that may not be entirely true.

A middle-aged Peter Parker confirmed for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

Last week, Sony released the first trailer for its animated feature Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, which is set to mark the big screen debut of Miles Morales.

However, as we saw at the end of the trailer (and as anyone familiar with the Spider-Verse storyline will know), Miles won’t be the only web-slinger to feature in the movie.

According to Collider, Phil Lord and Chris Miller have confirmed that Peter Parker does feature in the film and will serve as a middle-aged mentor passing on the baton to Miles as the new Spider-Man.

You may have caught a brief glimpse of Peter in the trailer, as well as a headstone which suggests that Peter Parker is believed to be dead (suggesting the middle-aged mentor Parker could be from another universe):

‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’ Trailer Unveils Animated Miles Morales

Sony has unveiled a brief teaser trailer of its upcoming animated movie “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” with a first look at the teenage Miles Morales.

The 80-second trailer opens with a hooded figure moving through the snow of New York City, visiting the grave of Peter Parker, then swinging awkwardly through skyscrapers with the tagline “More than one wears the mask.” When Spider-Man lands on a rooftop, he pulls off his mask to show that he is Miles Morales — and out of breath — then allows himself a brief laugh.

Miles Morales was introduced in 2011 in Chapter 4 of the “Ultimate Fallout” Marvel comic book series, which dealt with the aftermath of the death of Peter Parker. The teaser ends with Miles Morales in a subway station asking another figure “Wait, so how many of us are there?”

What next for Spider-Man on the big screen?

Rob Leane Jul 7, 2017

Spoilers, as we look ahead - and speculate about - the road ahead for Spider-Man in the movies...

This article contains spoilers for Spider-Man: Homecoming, and lots of speculation on things to come.

Tom Holland’s Peter Parker/Spider-Man stepped up to headline his own movie in Spider-Man: Homecoming, building on the foundations of Captain America: Civil War to bring his unique brand of nervous excitement and haphazard heroics to the big screen.

Sony and Marvel Studios will continue to collaborate on the Spidey franchise going forward, thrusting Peter into more zany situations and crossing him over with more iconic Avengers. Here’s a rundown of what to expect next, blended with a bit of our own speculation...
