Today's trailer for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse has captured plenty of fans' hearts, but it looks like one character may have just stolen the show.
The latest trailer for the upcoming Sony animated film introduces audiences to a slew of new Spider-people, including Spider-Man Noir (Nicholas Cage), Peni Parker (Kimiko Glenn), and Spider-Ham (John Mulaney). While Spider-Ham in particular only has a few short lines in the trailer, his debut - and the fact that Mulaney has been cast in the role since July - has proved to be a pretty pleasant surprise.
In the hours since the Spider-Verse trailer debuted, fans have voiced gotten fairly hyped about Mulaney's Spider-Ham, with quite a lot of people surprised that the comedian, Saturday Night Live alum, and Emmy winner is joining the Marvel universe. Here are just a few of our favorite responses.
