“Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse” Clip Finds Gwen & Miles Swinging Through NYC

Oh, to be young and in love and superpowered.

Sony Pictures has just revealed a new clip from Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse revealing Miles Morales (Shameik Moore) and Gwen Stacy (Hailee Steinfeld) enjoying the bounty of their youth and superpowers. Miles is, of course, Brooklyn’s one and only Spider-Man, and Gwen Stacy is the one and only Spider-Gwen, and together they might quite the pair. The clip finds the two swinging through New York while Gwen lets Miles in on a little secret; there’s a super-group of Spider-People, led by a “Ninja/Vampire Spider-Man, but a good guy,” as Gwen explains. Miles is, of course, intrigued, and his intrigue will eventually lead him to meet this super-group. That’s when a fresh round of troubles will start for Brooklyn’s one and only Spider-Man.

Across the Spider-Verse will center on Miles meeting this elite crew of the best Spider-People, led by that Ninja/Vampire that Gwen was talking about, founder Miguel O’Hara (voiced by Oscar Isaac), also known as Spider-Man 2099. Miles’ problems multiply along with the Spider-People he meets, and although he’s got allies like Gwen and Peter B. Parker (Jake Johnson), not everyone he meets will be rooting for him—and that will eventually include Spider-Man 2099.

Joining Isaac as newcomers to the franchise are Issa Rae as Jessica Drew/Spider-Woman, Daniel Kaluuya as Hobart ‘Hobie’ Brown/Spider-Punk, Jason Schwartzman as Spot, Jorma Taccone as Adrian Toomes/The Vulture, and Karan Soni as Spider-Man India.

Across the Spider-Verse is directed by the trio of Kemp Powers, Justin K. Thompson, and Joaquim Dos Santos. Powers, who wrote Regina King’s excellent 2020 film One Night In Miami and co-directed Pixar’s Soul, has said the sequel will continue Miles’ emotional journey as he matures, both as a young man and as Spider-Man. Phil Lord and Christopher Miller return as producers and as writers, co-writing alongside David Callaham.

“It’s been over a year since the events of the first movie, and he’s still trying to learn to be a superhero,” Moore said of Miles Morales when he introduced 14 minutes of the film at CinemaCon. He also offered a line that sounds ready for prime time (perhaps it’s straight from the movie); “How you wear the mask is what makes you a hero.”

Across the Spider-Verse is the second film in the planned trilogy, with Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse set for a March 29, 2024 release. 

Check out the clip below. Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse swings into theaters on June 2:
