The new Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse trailer is finally here and it’s giving us all the feels! We can’t wait to see Miles Morales (played by Shameik Moore) swinging through the multiverse, battling against an array of Spidey-themed villains from different dimensions. This animated sequel, produced by Sony Pictures and Marvel, promises to be bigger, better and more colorful than its award-winning predecessor, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.
As we dive into the new trailer, we find Miles struggling to balance his school life and his duties as Spider-Man in the bustling city of Brooklyn. He’s become somewhat of a rebel, defying his parents and struggling to keep up with his Spanish class, despite his heritage. But all of that changes when he receives a special invite from his love interest, Gwen Stacy (Hailee Steinfeld), leading him on an adventure that will take him across the multiverse.
Miles soon finds himself part of an elite crew of Spider-People who have come together to protect the multiverse. Under the guidance of Spider-Man 2099 (Oscar Isaac), Miles meets key Spideys such as Spider-Man India (Karan Soni), Spider-Punk (Daniel Kaluuya), and a very pregnant Jessica Drew/ Spider-Woman (Issa Rae). But the crew doesn’t seem to welcome Miles with open arms as he’s told he can never be part of this group. Despite this, Miles is determined to make his own way and follow his own path.
The trailer also introduces us to the new villain, The Spot (Jason Schwartzman), whose ghost-like body is covered with multiversal portals that allow him to travel freely between different universes. In a funny exchange at an evacuated bodega, Miles asks him if he’s a cow or a dalmatian.
As the trailer progresses, we see Miles and Gwen’s blossoming romance and Peter Parker (Jake Johnson) as a father to a baby who seems to exhibit the same qualities as a web-slinger. But things take a serious turn when Spider-Man 2099 tells Miles that being Spider-Man is a sacrifice, and that he must choose between saving one person or saving every world. This mission seems to be of the utmost importance to O’Hara, causing him to prioritize the ultimate goal at any cost. Miles, on the other hand, wants to make his own choices and follow his own path, putting him at odds with the multiversal Spider crew.
The film promises to offer six major art styles, each dimension with its own unique vibe. This is a great departure from the traditional Pixar-like CGI animation, and we can’t wait to see what the creative team has in store for us.
Overall, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse looks like a promising addition to the Spider-Man franchise. It has action, romance, and humor, all wrapped up in a visually stunning package. We can’t wait to catch the film in theaters on June 2nd and experience the multiverse in all its glory. For Indian audiences, the film will be available in multiple languages, including English, Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Punjabi, Gujarati, Marathi, Bengali, Kannada, and Malayalam.
