Sony Pictures has revealed the first teaser look for the upcoming animated sequel Spider-Man: Via the Spider-Verse (Part 1) At Comic-Con Experience in Brazil this weekend. Yes, it will be a two-part sequel to the critically acclaimed and Academy Award-winning 2018 film. Spider-Man inside the spider world.
(Some spoilers for Spider-Man inside the spider world below.)
The 2018 movie was a huge success, grossing over $375 million worldwide on a $90 million budget, and winning the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature – a well-deserved honor. As Sam Machkovech of Ars Technica wrote in his review, “It’s easily the best comic in years to warmly embrace the types of viewers who know their comics front and back, all without scaring the inevitable kid and novice viewers drawn to this incredibly family-friendly adventure.”
Sony started developing the sequel a month ago In the verse of the spider It was released, and soon after, producer Amy Pascal announced that the film would focus on the emerging relationship between Miles and Gwen Stacy/Spider Gwen. The film is directed by Joaquim dos Santos, Kemp Powers, and Justin K. Thompson, all of whom are making their feature films for the first time.
Writers and producers Phil Lord and Chris Miller told Entertainment Weekly Saturday that they decided to split the sequel into two separate films, after realizing they had too many stories to tell to squeeze into one part. (They’re working on both films simultaneously.) As we see in this premiere clip, each universe in the multiverse has its own distinct look, designed to indicate that it was drawn by a different artist.
According to the official introduction:
Miles Morales returns for the next chapter of the Academy Award-winning saga of Spider-Verse, an epic adventure that will take Brooklyn’s full-time friendly Spider-Man neighborhood across the multiverse to join Gwen Stacy and a new team of Spider-people who face a villain stronger than anything they’ve ever faced. .
The teaser trailer is light on plot details, but has some amazing visuals. We opened with Miles (Shameik Moore) resting at home – in fact, he’s off – after he successfully saved the multiverse and became the world’s Spider-Man. Then Gwen Stacy (Hailee Steinfeld) unexpectedly opens a portal to release, having figured out how to communicate with Miles across dimensions at the end of the first movie. I mean, she could have called first so he could clean up his room a bit. But Gwen only teases him a little when she sees Miles’ drawing of her. (“I missed you too.”)
Miles may be off but Spider-Man isn’t, so it wasn’t long before he swung through gate after gate, navigating the multiverse. Once it crashes, Spider-Man from the year 2099, Miguel O’Hara (Oscar Isaac), exits another portal. (O’Hara appeared briefly in the final credits of the last movie, arguing with another Spider-Man in 1967 New York City.) Everything flashes pretty quickly, but we get a glimpse of Miles swaying in a place called Mompatan in what appears to be an Indian-inspired world. . (Indian and Tamil words are in the background.)
Jake Johnson will also reprise his role as Peter B. Parker from the first movie. Spider-Woman, aka Jessica Drew (Issa Rae) is expected to appear at some point in Part Two, and Takuya Yamashiro, “Japanese Spider-Man” from 1978 Spider Man The series is listed among the cast of part One. As for characters like Kimiko Glenn’s Peni Parker, Nicolas Cage’s Spider-Man Noir, or John Mulaney’s scene-stealing from Spider-Ham — well, Lord and Miller have neither confirmed nor denied those potential vignettes. And they told EW, “Miles is going to meet some old friends and meet…several new friends.”
Spider-Man: Via the Spider-Verse (Part 1) It is currently scheduled to be released in theaters on October 7, 2022. The second part Scheduled to decline sometime in 2023. Also in development: a female-centric branch spider woman A movie that spans three generations: Gwen Stacy/Spider Gwen and Jessica Drew/Spider and Man and Cindy Moon/Silk.
