New “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse” Images Drop Ahead of Today’s Trailer
The first trailer for Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse arrives today, yet Sony has revealed a sneak peek via four new images.
The images remind us of what made Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse such a revelation. Those colors! That fantastic design work! The gorgeous animation makes the world of the Spider-Verse a Spidey fever dream, but the original film was rooted in the epic adventures of Brooklyn’s own Miles Morales (Shameik Moore) as he traversed across the multiverse encountering fellow Spider-People and lunatic villains. Across the Spider-Verse will continue that duality, with trippy animation nested within a story about a young, Afro-Latino Spider-Man and his growing group of Spidey-friends.
The new images reveal that Miles’ upcoming adventures are even more kaleidoscopic than his previous odyssey. One of the images reveals Oscar Isaac’s Spider-Man 2099, while the featured image shows Spider-Man and Gwen Stacy (Hailee Steinfeld) taking on the Spot (Jason Schwartzman).
The trailer will finally reveal Across the Spider-Verse‘s plot—or at least way more than the little we know about it now. We know that Oscar-winner Daniel Kaluuya is on hand as Spider-Punk, joined by Jake Johnson as Peter B. Parker, Issa Rae as Jessica Drew, Brian Tyree Henry as Jefferson Davis, Jorma Taccone as the Vulture, and Shea Whigham as George Stacey. The sequel is to be directed by the trio of Joaquim Dos Santos, Kemp Powers, and Justin K. Thompson.
Into the Spider-Verse veterans Phil Lord, Christopher Miller, and Dave Callaham wrote the script, with the original film’s directors, Peter Ramsey and Bob Persichetti, executive producing alongside Aditya Sood. Across the Spider-Verse is set to hit theaters on June 2, 2023, and will be the middle installment of what’s planned as a trilogy, with Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse pegged for a March 29, 2024, release date.
