The most curious thing about Sony’s upcoming Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is the potential to weave every single one of the studio’s previous Spider-Man films into one loosely-connected multiverse with Miles Morales, Gwen Stacy and Peter Parker at the centre of it.

In the latest trailer for the animated feature, Peter takes a minute to explain to you just how popular his, well, no, Spider-Man’s brand is.

While all of the heroes who’ve used the “Spider-Man” code name have saved the multiverse more times then they can count, each of them began as friendly, street-level, neighbourhood heroes.

This summer, Miles Morales is going back to Brooklyn in an all-new series from writer Saladin Ahmed and artist Javier Garrón that’ll explore what it means to be both a web-slinging superhero and a teenager who’s just trying to be a teen.

With the release of Invincible Iron Man #600 late last month, Brian Michael Bendis has officially left the building at Marvel Comics. His long career at the publisher saw him create iconic characters and helm some of the biggest stories Marvel had, to the point that Bendis was writing so many series he's actually said goodbye four different times.

The great thing about Sony's new trailer for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is that while it's (wonderfully) light on specific details about the plot, it's chock-full of little hints and clues about what we can expect to see in the film.

Marvel's resurgent group of teenage crimefighters -- whether that's the time-lost young X-Men or the youngest All-New, All-Different Avengers -- are doing something that's very teen. They're defying their older colleagues to go it alone, fighting crime and generally being all hopeful and grassroots-y while doing so.

Marvel's putting out two comics with teenage Spider-Men in lead roles. Spidey features a young Peter Parker at the start of his crime-fighting career; Spider-Man serves to introduce Miles Morales into the newly revamped Marvel Universe.

There are lots of Spider-people in the Marvel Universe right now. But only two of them call themselves Spider-Man. One, of course, is the newly-rich Peter Parker, originator of the wall-crawler identity. The other is an alternate-reality successor to the Spider-mantle named Miles Morales. This week, we see Miles play a pivotal role in the last superhero battle of the Ultimate Universe.
