After the immense success of Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse in 2018, it was inevitable that Sony would produce a sequel. Now Sony has finally released the first trailer for the film. Even more of a surprise is this will be told in two parts.
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (Part One) has the same amazing mixed animation style as the first movie. Even more interesting is they pulled a trick from Back to the Future. This movie start at the same point where the prior one ended. Shameik Moore and Hailee Steinfeld reprise their roles for the movie and it looks to continue its multiverse foundation of storytelling.
I really loved the first “Miles” movie, as I call it. I went into it not knowing what to expect and only excited about seeing a movie animated in a new style. When it ended I was elated by the story it told and the humor & wit that was woven through the script. Even better, it wasn’t a reboot or some gimmick to re-tell Spider-Man’s story. It felt wholly-original.
Now, the clock is ticking until I can see the next installment of what will now be a trilogy. This next Spider-Verse film released on October 7th, 2022 with Part Two coming in 2023.
