The duo have a distinct style of directing/producing in which they combine great humour with an equally engaging storyline. With the Spiderverse they have broken the limits of what an animated movie can do. It was akin to living inside a Spider-Man comic. To get it to an even bigger scale, they need more time to properly develop the movie to perfection, they revealed
Every dimension looks and feels radically different from all the others,” They all look like they were drawn by a different artist.”
So what will Across the Spiderverse bring?
After showing us Miles Morales’ origin story in part one, the sequel will bring show more of Miles’ journey to become the Spider-Man we know and love. But this time we will get deeper into the multiverse they had established before. In the footage shown at Cinemacon, we get to see more of Gwen Stacy’s Spider-Woman. She is shown in a battle against the Vulture.
But the Vulture is too strong for her and then Spider-Man of the future – Miguel O’Hara aka Spider-Man 2099 comes out to help her. The producers also gave the first look at Jessica Drew who is another Spiderwoman in the Spidey multiverse. After showing the footage Lord and Miller said that even though this movie will go deeper into the multiverse, the focus will still be on Miles’ story while we explore these other Spider-people.
“Miles’ story is an epic,” Lord and Miller said in an interview with EW. “We wrote what we thought the story needed to be, and to our surprise, we realized it was two movies instead of one. We’re working on them both as we speak. Part Two will be out sometime in 2023. We will sleep again in 2024.”
Miguel O’Hara will be voiced by the newest Marvel Star Oscar Isaac who plays the titular role of Steven Grant/ Marc Spector/ Moonknight in the Disney plus TV series.
Spider-Man: Across the Spiderverse will release on June 2nd 2023 while Spider-Man: Beyond the Spiderverse will release on March 29th 2024.
