Sony recently dropped a trailer for Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (Part One) and Spider-Man fans are absolutely losing their heads. It’s known within the fandom that Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is without a shadow of a doubt the best Spider-Man movie to date.

 

While Tom Holland has been a fan favorite, Mile Morales is the Spider-Man that Marvel fans want more of. Although the animated movies are GOAT tier, fans are pushing for a live-action Mile Morales to show up in the Marvel Cinematic Universe now that it has its hands in the Multiverse. At least we’ll get two parts for this film!

 

The first thing that people noticed about the jam-packed trailer was the new art style. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is considered the best Spider-Man movie not only for the characters and the story — but mainly because of the art style.

 

Co-writers and producers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller revealed more about the film’s visuals during a Q&A with Entertainment Weekly on Twitter. Across the Spider-Verse’s plot will see Miles traveling the Multiverse, with each world set to feature its own unique art style. According to the pair, “Well we’re just getting started. In the first look you get just a taste of what we’re going for. Every dimension looks and feels radically different from all the others. They all look like they were drawn by a different artist.”

 

A synopsis for the film has also been released, citing that Miles will return for “an epic adventure” that will take him “across the Multiverse.” This leads to Miles joining forces with Gwen Stacy/Spider-Gwen and “a new team of Spider-People” to engage in battle with an enemy described as being “more powerful than anything they have ever encountered.” The synopsis has yet to name any of the new Spider-People Miles will meet or identify the villain that they are set to battle.

 

 

Another surprise was the appearance of Spider-Man 2099, also known a Miguel O’Hara (played by Oscar Isaac). You might remember him from the post-credit scene from Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse where a Spider-Man variant is talking to a nondescript female character and travels to another Spider-Man universe, Earth-67, a universe that resembles the Spider-Man cartoons from 1967 — and the site of the famous “Spider-Man pointing” meme.

 

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (Part One) releases in theaters Oct. 7, 2022.
