Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, as a sequel, couldn’t be better than the original, could it? It CAN get weirder.

Building on the success of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse new film features a more worldly wise Miles Morales, still struggling to be the Spider-Man the people of Brooklyn need while maintaining his status as an “A” student. Unfortunately for him, everybody seems to have something to say about who he is going to be and what his chosen path is but him.

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse explores this theme as the fate of the Multi-verse hangs in the balance and the heroes disagree on how best to protect it. The film delivers and expands on the same amazing visual storytelling pioneered by Sony Pictures Animation for the first film. The trailer is so much a work of art that you can single-step through it frame by frame and appreciate each frame as a masterpiece.

Including a scene that recreates the internet meme of Spider-Man pointing to other instances of himself. Watch for that.

All our favorite characters from the previous film are back: Shameik Moore is Miles Morales. Hailee Steinfeld returns as Gwen Stacy (Spider-Gwen). Jake Johnson is back as Peter B. Parker, Luna Lauren Velez is back as Mile’s mom, Rio Morales. There is even an Indian Spider-Man (I think that’s a first for the character), voiced by Karan Soni.

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse comes to the big screen on June 2, 2023, just two months away.

Be prepared, though. The project was getting so big that in December 2021 producers Phil Lord and Chris Miller confirmed it would be split into two parts as the work on the sequel had grown so large it was decided to split it into two films titled Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse Part One and Part Two.
