It’s International Spider-man Day today… bet you didn’t know that!

And to celebrate, Sony have released a new image of Miles Morales looking at three different Spider-man outfits from the upcoming Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse animated movie.

So what are we looking at, or rather what is Miles looking at?

Well, according to Nerdest: “On the left is the Electro-Proof suit, which first appeared in 1997’s Amazing Spider-Man #425 to help Peter and X-Man defeat the villainous Electro; in the middle is Peter Parker’s classic Spider-Man suit; and on the right, we have the Secret War Spider-Man suit, a S.H.I.E.L.D.-designed stealth suit worn during Nick Fury’s covert mission to overthrow the Latverian government.”

Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, the creative minds behind The Lego Movie and 21 Jump Street, bring their unique talents to a fresh vision of a different Spider-Man Universe, with a groundbreaking visual style that’s the first of its kind. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse introduces Brooklyn teen Miles Morales, and the limitless possibilities of the Spider-Verse, where more than one can wear the mask.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
