It is officially Spidey Season. Not only is everyone buzzing about Spider-Man: No Way Home, which arrives in theaters on December 17… But now another Spider-Man-related bomb has gone off. And we aren’t talking about Green Goblin’s favorite weapons. No, the first trailer for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse‘s sequel, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (Part One), has arrived. Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (Part One) may feel like a bit of a mouthful to say at first. But it’s one long title we could not feel more excited to see.
The trailer doesn’t swing deep into the action right away. Instead, it kicks off by reminding us what we loved so much about Into the Spider-Verse. Namely, the incredible animation on our screens and our favorite, endearing protagonists. Spider-Gwen is back, voiced by Hailee Steinfeld. Gwen dons her undercut, green vans, and snarky affection. She’s come ready to give our hero, Miles Morales, a gentle, hard time. Miles, voiced by Shameik Moore, is, of course, nothing but smooth. It’s clear they’ve missed each other.
We find out that Miles is grounded, but happily, for us, Spider-Man is anything but. The second half of the trailer swings into high gear as Miles Morales’ Spider-Man makes his way through a couple of superbly animated worlds. The multiverse has not become any less beautiful since the first movie. He’s tussling with Spider-Man 2099 as he goes, but it’s unclear whether the latter comes as a friend or foe. We last saw Spider-Man 2099 in Into the Spider-Verse‘s after the credits scene. Oscar Isaac voices this mysterious character.
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (Part One)‘s trailer description further shares:
Miles Morales returns for the next chapter of the Oscar®-winning Spider-Verse saga, an epic adventure that will transport Brooklyn’s full-time, friendly neighborhood Spider-Man across the Multiverse to join forces with Gwen Stacy and a new team of Spider-People to face off with a villain more powerful than anything they have ever encountered.
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (Part One) is coming exclusively to movie theaters on October 7, 2022.
This sounds like a lot more multiverse fun. And, we can’t help but notice that part one implies part two. So, grab your spidey suits; it’s going to be a wild ride.
