It’s been a long wait, but Miles Morales is finally ready to return to the spider worms.
Sony has released the first full trailer for Spider-Man: Through the Spider-Verse Tuesday, following Brooklyn-based Shameik Moore’s web-slinger as he and Gwen Stacy (Hailee Steinfeld) travel through the multiverse. The new trailer comes almost exactly four years after the first spider worms, an instant classic that won the Oscar for Best Animated Feature. (Many, including this writer, would say it’s the greatest animated superhero movie of all time.)
So it’s safe to say that Through the Spider-Verse is highly anticipated – and the new trailer gives our best look at Miles’ interdimensional adventures. The 2018 film was mostly set in Miles’ universe, as a team of different Spideys moved towards him. The sequel flips the script and follows Miles (voiced by Moore) as he ventures into other dimensions for the first time and faces off against a new threat. Several familiar voices return, including Steinfeld as Spider-Gwen and Oscar Isaac as Spider-Man 2099/Miguel O’Hara (who made a brief appearance in the end credits of the first film).
The new cast also includes Issa Rae as Jessica Drew/Spider-Woman, Daniel Kaluuya as Spider-Punk, Jorma Taccone as Vulture, and Jason Schwartzman as Spot – an infamous supervillain with the ability to open portals between universes.
Writer-producers Phil Lord and Chris Miller previously told EW that Miles visits a slew of other universes, each with their own unique style. “Each dimension looks and feels drastically different from every other,” the pair previously said. “They all look like they were drawn by a different artist.”
Through the Spider-Verse had a long journey to theaters. Sony almost immediately announced plans for a sequel after the first. spider worms opened in 2018, but since then the film has weathered several pandemic-related delays and been pushed back from 2022 to 2023. Now, Through the Spider-Verse will be released in theaters on June 2, 2023, while a third film planned, Beyond the Spider-Verse, is scheduled for March 2024.
Joaquim Dos Santos, Kemp Powers and Justin K. Thompson direct Across the Spider-Verse, succeeding original directors Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey and Rodney Rothman. Lord and Miller wrote the screenplay with Dave Callaham (Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings).
