It’s been a long wait, but Miles Morales is finally ready to get back on the pitch Spider-Verse.
Sony has released the first full trailer for Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse Tuesday, following Brooklyn-based web-slinger Shameik Moore as he and Gwen Stacy (Hailee Steinfeld) travel across the multiverse. The new trailer comes almost exactly four years after the first one Spider-Verse, an instant classic that won the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature. (Many, including this writer, would argue that it’s the greatest animated superhero movie of all time.)
So, it’s safe to say On the other side of the Ragnoverse is highly anticipated, and the new trailer offers our best look at Miles’ interdimensional adventures. The 2018 film mostly took place in the Miles universe, as a crew of several Spideys made their way to him. The sequel turns the script upside down and follows Miles (voiced by Moore) as he ventures into other dimensions for the first time and faces a new threat. Several familiar voices returned, including Steinfeld as Spider-Gwen and Oscar Isaac as Spider-Man 2099/Miguel O’Hara (who made a brief cameo in the first film’s credits).
The new cast also includes Issa Rae as Jessica Drew/Spider-Woman, Daniel Kaluuya as Spider-Punk, Jorma Taccone as The Vulture and Jason Schwartzman as Spot, an evil super-villain with the ability to open portals between universes.
Writer-producers Phil Lord and Chris Miller previously told EW that Miles visits a whole host of other universes, each with their own unique style. “Each dimension looks and feels radically different from all the others,” the couple previously said. “They all look like they were designed by a different artist.”
On the other side of the Ragnoverse had a long trip to theaters. Sony almost immediately announced plans for a sequel after the first one Spider-Verse opened in 2018, but the film has since weathered several pandemic-related delays and been pushed back from 2022 to 2023. Now, On the other side of the Ragnoverse will be released in theaters on June 2, 2023, while a third film planned, Beyond the Spider-Verse, is scheduled for March 2024.
Joaquim Dos Santos, Kemp Powers and Justin K. Thompson are directing On the other side of the Spider-Verse, taking over from original directors Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey and Rodney Rothman. Lord and Miller wrote the screenplay with Dave Callaham (Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings).
