The Spider-Man movies have always been pretty popular, but it’s safe to say that Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is beloved like no other. The animated film, which won Best Animated Feature at the Oscars, just has an energy and infectious spirit that live-action movies can’t match. We knew a sequel was coming, but late last night we got our first teaser and an official title: Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (Part One).
That’s right, this is going to be a two-part saga for Miles Morales, Gwen Stacy, and all of the Spider-People they’ll encounter across this version of the Multiverse. Shameik Moore is back as Miles, with current Hawkeye star Hailee Steinfeld returning as Spider-Gwen. And refusing to stay away from superheroes is X-Men: Apocalypse and Moon Knight star Oscar Isaac who will voice Miguel O’Hara aka Spider-Man 2099, also teased in this footage.
Interestingly, all three of these characters fought together in the 2014 storyline titled “Spider-Verse“, which is where Gwen was first introduced. I’m curious to know if the film will take aspects from that story.
The sequel is once again produced and co-written by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, joined by Shang-Chi writer David Callaham. Taking over as directors are Joaquim Dos Santos, Soul co-writer Kemp Powers, and Justin K. Thompson.
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (Part One) opens October 7th 2022!
