Marvel's friendly neighborhood Spider-Man is currently at the forefront of the comic company's news stream, which is largely thanks to the upcoming release of Spider-Man: No Way Home. However, that's not the only web-slinger-centric project on fans' horizons, thanks to the sequel to the wildly successful animated feature Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, which broke the mold in many ways back in 2018.
The animated Spidey feature became a near-instant success upon its release with the story of Miles Morales becoming Spider-Man and entering a world he never knew existed. Teaming up with web-slingers from all across the Multiverse, which even included John Mulaney's Spider-Pig named Peter Porker, the film showed exactly what a Multiverse-centric story could bring to the comic book movie landscape.
Following Into The Spider-Verse's accomplishments, Sony quickly moved forward with plans for a sequel that will come to theaters in late 2022. Now, with Spidey in the spotlight from multiple angles, Sony took the opportunity to give fans an exciting tease of what to expect in the world of animation.
Sony Shows First Look at Spider-Verse Sequel
Live from the CCXP Comic-Con in Brazil, via Twitter, Sony gave fans the first full look at the sequel to 2018's Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. The preview also confirmed that the movie's official title is Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (Part One).
The trailer shows Miles Morales jumping back through Multiversal pathways fully suited up in the Spider-Man suit he developed in the original movie.
Also shown in the trailer was Oscar Isaac's Spider-Man 2099, who made his animated debut in Into The Spider-Verse's post-credits scene with a hilarious introduction. Here, he seems to be taking the fight to Miles as the two fall through different dimensions.
With this being Miles' first time outside of his own universe, the trailer showed just a tease of how he will enter other areas of the Multiverse through glowing red pathways.
Collider confirmed that the movie will be the first of two parts shortly after the trailer debuted, with Part Two set to release at some point in 2023, although no specific release date has been announced.
The full trailer for Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse Part One, which will bow in theaters on October 7, 2022, can be seen below:
Miles Morales Exploring the Spider-Verse
With this new movie still being nearly a year away from its debut, Sony clearly wants to keep many of the secrets close to the vest in a No Way Home-esque fashion, especially with the rumored title from October being accurate. However, it appears that the entertainment giant is taking what fans loved from the original animated outing and taking the excitement to new levels.
Kicking off right from the final scene of Into the Spider-Verse, Miles sees Hailee Steinfeld's Gwen Stacy hovering above him through a portal in his bedroom before she finds out how he lives at home. Even though Miles admits that he's grounded for some unknown reason, Gwen nudges him by indicating that Spider-Man isn't grounded, pushing the young hero to suit up again for another adventure.
This trailer doesn't reveal too much of the story, with just about 30 seconds of footage showing anything beyond Miles and Gwen in his bedroom. It does, however, tease an imminent matchup with the impressively powerful Spider-Man 2099 as Miles leaves his own world for the first time.
As Oscar Isaac takes on his second concurrent Marvel role alongside his Moon Knight solo series, fans are excited to see the intensity that the Marvel veteran brings to an animated setting. No matter what happens, this trailer sets the stage for yet another thrilling outing in the animated realm as the Spider-Verse sees a full expansion.
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse will debut in theaters on October 7, 2022.
