The Spider-Verse web is expanding … twice!
Miles Morales’ (voiced by Shameik Moore) story will continue where it left off after 2018’s animated Oscar-winner Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. Not only did Sony unveil a first look at the sequel on Saturday, but they also confirmed the official title for the movie: Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (Part One). You read that right! Rather than one direct sequel, Spider-Verse will receive two sequels.
With the first installment of this franchise taking place largely in Miles’ home universe, it appears that part one of the sequels will involve an adventure through the Multiverse. In the first look, we see Miles and Gwen (voiced by Hailee Steinfeld) reunite and head off into the Multiverse together. The fun doesn’t end there though, because fans of the web-slinger also receive a look at Miles entangled in a face-off against Miguel O’Hara aka Spider-Man 2099 (voiced by Oscar Isaac). Spider-Man 2099 first appeared in the end-credit scene for the first movie.
Joaquim Dos Santos, Kemp Powers, and Justin K. Thompson are directing Across the Spider-Verse, taking over from the first installment’s directors Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey, and Rodney Rothman. Returning from the first movie are writer-producers Phil Lord and Chris Miller to write the script, along with Dave Callaham (Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings).
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (Part One) swings into theaters October 7, 2022.
