Following multiple delays, the sequel to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse has received its first trailer, and Miles Morales takes center stage.
One of the biggest triumphs that won a 2019 Oscar for Best Animation, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, has finally thrown the trailer for the sequel, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, into the light today. The trailer showcases solid animation, voice acting talent, and best of all, many Spider-cladded heroes. The trailer can be seen below.
The trailer features the same graphical engine that powered its predecessor, with cel-shading and a larger-than-life atmosphere. Where the MCEU introduced the idea of creating a multiverse with their latest Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, featuring a new take on Reed Richards and a familiar take on Professor Xavier, the Spider-Verse becomes denser. This time it seems the heroes are at odds with one another.
The small glimpse into the many different universes of Spider-Man is head spinning, as many renditions of the character can be seen portrayed in the very brief trailer. Oscar Isaac, the lead actor for another Marvel license Moon Knight, lends his vocal talents to play Miguel O’Hara better known as Spider-Man 2099. Stan Lee can even be seen in his trademark cameo form as a store clerk serving Morales as he buys a much needed web slinging costume.
In a star-studded voice talent pool, Shameik Moore returns as Miles Morales in an overhauled costume featuring a new spider insignia, Hailee Steinfeld voices Gwen Stacy, and other credits are given to Jake Johnson as Peter Parker, Issa Rae, Brian Tyree Henry, Luna Lauren Velez, Rachel Dratch, and many others. Renowned producers Joaquim Dos Santos, Kemp Powers, and Justin K. Thompson are given directorial duties for the sequel as it crawls ever closer to its release date.
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse will sling exclusively to theatres on June 2, 2023.
