Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is Coming and Here’s Why You Should See It


From more webbed heroes in the picture to multiple art styles, here’s why you shouldn’t miss Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse

The long wait for New York’s friendly neighborhood superhero is over! Miles Morales is back on the big screen this week and he’s bringing the gang with him. The Spider-Verse animated film series makes its return with Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, the second installment after the first film in 2018. This time, Miles discovers that there is more to the Spider-Man multiverse than he knew about. Along with the great discovery of the Spider-Society, our protagonist meets a new foe and Spiders that he will clash with.

Almost five years after the first movie, Across the Universe is already a peek at how the multiverses will expand to greater heights in the next films. Just like the growth of the Spider-Society, so is the excitement for the fans of all iterations of the Marvel superhero. Now that Miles and the rest of the spider people are coming sooner than ever, here’s why we shouldn’t miss their return: 

The multiverse is in with the old and new 

In the film, our teenage Miles Morales reunites with Earth-65’s Spider Gwen, aka Gwen Stacy. There is more friction to their established bond this time around, especially with the Spider-Man 2099 involved. The new character, also known as Miguel O’Hara, who is voiced by Oscar Isaac, is the founder-commander of the Spider-Society, and is determined to keep it intact. Other iterations of the webbed hero will be seen in the movie, such as Peter B. Parker, who is now Mayday’s father in the sequel. Another parental figure takes the form of Jessica Drew or Spider-Woman. We also have Pavitr Prabhakar as Spider-Man India and London’s Hobie Brown as Spider-Punk to watch out for.

Animation styles are expanding

If you are already impressed with the animation of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, then prepare to marvel at the sequel’s elevated art techniques. Producer Phil Lord revealed last year that the film will feature not just one, but six art forms in the coming film. The trailer already shows a peek of pop art style, but we can expect more of impressionistic forms, a darker “Mumbattan” (Mumbai and Manhattan) texture, and neo-futurist elements courtesy of the Spider-Society members. This will surely be a treat not just for Spider-Man lovers, but also those who appreciate animation on another level.

The music will get our senses tingling

In the Hyundai IONIQ 5 and 6 commercial earlier this month, Miles and Gwen made a short appearance along with Metro Boomin’s track called “Link Up” featuring Don Toliver. Metro Boomin later announced that he produced the album for Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse. Earlier today, the recorder-producer confirmed that artists such as Nav, Coi Leray, JID, Swae Lee, Toian, and Lil Uzi Vert will join the Spider-Verse soundtrack. Who knows? We might also get a remix of Black Caviar and Blackway’s “What’s Up Danger”, a track featured in the first movie and in the trailer for Across the Spider-Verse

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is coming to the Philippines this May 31, 2023.
