Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is less than a year away but the first teaser poster for the film has officially been released online.
The writer/producer of the film, Christopher Miller, shared the promotional teaser poster for the anticipated sequel. The poster was originally made for the film’s crew but the artwork is still fantastic to see. In the artwork, we are able to see Miles Morales fighting against Spider-Man 2099 aka Miguel O’Hara.
Check out the poster below!
First Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse Poster
The style of the poster features the same comic book aesthetic as it was in the film. The yellow background and the static-like imagery makes the image pop. Miles is wearing his original black and red outfit while O’Hara dons his red and blue Spider-2099 outfit. They are both battling it out while Miles looks like he’s about to hit O’Hara with what looks like a pen-like weapon.
The comic style made the first film intriguing. The visuals were beautifully designed and it looked as if you were stepping into the comic world. The amazing visuals and vibrant colors made the film unique and with that uniqueness, it earned praise and even awards. Into the Spider-Verse won Best Animated Feature at the 91st Academy Awards.
This was a big success for the studio and the film since this was the first non-Disney/Pixar film to win this award since 2011’s Rango.
Across the Spider-Verse Plot
The details surrounding the film have been secretive but according to Miller, the story will take place across six universes and will be featuring multiple characters.
“To clarify, amidst the universe-hopping there are unique characters that had to be designed and modeled but they’re mostly minor or background characters. The scale is grand, but the story is personal & centers on Miles and his family, along w/ Gwen and a handful of others.”Christopher Miller via Twitter
The ultimate premise of the film will have Miles Morales going across the multiverse with Gwen Stacy/ Spider-Woman and a new team of Spider-People, who will face a powerful villain. This will eventually lead both Morales and O’Hara to meet in the film, after the previous film showed the character traveling through the multiverse at the post-credit scene.
Who’s coming to the Spider-Verse?
The cast is filled with a massive ensemble cast, many of which we have seen from the first film, including Shameik Moore (Miles Morales/Spider-Man), Hailee Steinfeld (Gwen Stacy/ Spider-Woman), Jake Johnson (Peter Parker/ Spider-Man), Brian Tyree Henry (Jefferson Davis), and Luna Lauren Vélez (Rio Morales).
From what Miller said, there will be numerous characters that will be involved in this film but the voice actors we will also be seeing (or better yet, hearing) on the big screen are Issa Rae (Jessica Drew/ Spider-Woman), Jason Schwartzman as the villainous Spot, Rachel Dratch as the Principal, Shea Whigham as George Stacy, Jorma Taccone as the Vulture and Oscar Isaac as Miguel O’Hara/ Spider-Man 2099.
When it comes to Miguel O’Hara’s powers, the studio has spoken about it during this year’s animated film festival, Annecy Festival, in France. “Unlike other Spidey’s, Miguel O’Hara wasn’t bitten by a radioactive bug and doesn’t have Spidey Sense. But with advanced tech and his own prowess, he’s got super strength! Wall-climbing claws! A giant laser web! a flying wing-suit!!”
According to Isaac, the actor has described his character as the one web slinger won’t have a sense of humor. It should also be noted that the production company has also nicknamed the character “Property Damage Spider-Man” due to the damage that he leaves in his wake. The film is set for release in June 2023, with a third, film, Beyond the Spider-Verse in 2024 and a female-focused spinoff film that is currently in development.
