Now that we've had Spider-Man movies for the better part of two decades, the ones that stand out are the ones with a good story and a distinct and unique visual style—the first two Raimi films and Homecoming being the most shining examples. Now we're getting the first ever big-budget animated Spider-Man movie and it looks like they've embraced the notion of doing something different as this doesn't look like any film I've ever seen before.

This newest trailer for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse shows off an incredible mix of animation styles, complete with comic book-esque little yellow boxes for inner thoughts. In other words, it might be the first comic book movie since Ang Lee's Hulk with a visual style that actually mimics a comic book.

It also makes sense for them to explore the possibilities of multiple, parallel universes since that's been a big thing in the comics for decades. It seems like the major comic book movies have been helping to set this up for a while now. I also like the fact that they've been visually inspired by the Ultimate versions of the various character, something else we haven't seen before in a Spider-Man movie.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse swings into theaters on December 14.
