‘Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse’ Trailer: Gwen Stacy And Miles Morales Team-Up Against Villain The Spot

Like a football coach with too much talent on his roster, Sony Pictures is dealing with a very good problem right now. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse was a huge critical and box office hit for them in 2018, winning the Oscar for Best Animated Feature. That sets the stakes incredibly high for the upcoming sequel, Across the Spider-Verse, which shifts its focus to Gwen Stacy, once again voiced by Hailee Steinfeld.

A new trailer for Across the Spider-Verse has been released, teasing the reunion of Gwen Stacy and Miles Morales, once again voiced by Shameik Moore, as they team-up with other Spider-folks to battle the powerful-but-silly villain known as The Spot. Jason Schwartzman voices The Spot, who director Kemp Powers recently confirmed would be the main baddie for the next two movies.

“The Spot is an interesting villain because he seems like a joke, but when you really look at his powers, there’s incredible potential,” Powers teased to Total Film. “His ability to open portals across dimensions sets him up perfectly for the Spider-Verse…He’s the villain of the next two films…and let’s just say that the Spot and Miles are connected in surprising ways.”

Also in the cast are Jake Johnson as Peter Parker, Oscar Isaac as Miguel O’Hara aka Spider-Man 2099, Brian Tyree Henry and Luna Lauren Velez as Miles’ parents, Daniel Kaluuya as Spider-Punk, and more.

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse opens in theaters on June 2nd 2023.
