Multiple realities make it difficult to discern what is conceivable with the limitless letter combinations. Miles Morales (Shameik Moore)’s limits are hard to define in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse massive tale.
Spider-Man 2099 (Oscar Isaac) references Spider-Man: No Way Home in one of the sequel’s promos, leaving fans to wonder how it’s connected to Tom Holland’s newest adventure. Kemp Powers, the film’s co-director, told ComicBook
“The world of Miles Morales and Spider-Verse, it’s not tied into the Marvel Cinematic Universe or anything like that. But this is a Lord and Miller film. We like to have a little bit of fun, we like to be a little bit meta and to acknowledge the world in which we are creating these stories. That’s the best way to explain it.
This isn’t something where we did anything in conjunction with Marvel. Miles’s universe, trust me, there’s plenty to work with. That gag is one of many, and my favorite gag is one that people don’t know about yet. But I think when they see it, they’re going to be pretty stunned. It’s a serious film, but it’s also a film with a lot of fun in it.”
Miguel O’Hara’s suggestion of Tom Holland’s wall-crawler being part of the animated movies’ universe was intriguing, but the two studios are not collaborating, making the reference an amusing tribute to a massive film.
Miles will have much to cope with this time, so maybe a direct link to the other Spider-Men of the big screen should wait. Maybe the elder Peter (Jake Johnson), Gwen (Hailee Steinfeld), and others helped him fight the Kingpin (Liv Schreiber), but nothing has prepared him for what’s coming.
In Marvel comics, The Spot is a clever but weak danger. The Jason Schwartzman-voiced version in the sequel appears like the genuine deal, capable of upsetting Mile’s universe at any time. The villain can open tunnels around and inside himself, making him nearly untouchable.
Miles must use his wits to stop the new villain before he hurts anyone. Brooklyn’s hero also faces a strange multiverse-destroying danger.
2+ Hours of Multiverse Fun
As seen by the first film, the animated Spider-Verse franchise reimagines comic book storytelling on the big screen, and the project is already making history.
It will be the longest animated film ever at two hours and twenty minutes, almost thirty minutes longer than its predecessor.
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse will thrill audiences this summer as Miles saves several universes.
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse opens in theaters on June 2. Watch the official trailer below:
