- The teaser also confirms the return of Hailee Steinfeld as Gwen Stacy and Miguel O’Hara, AKA Spider-Man 2099.
- The Spot’s presence in the Spider-Verse is far from guaranteed, the character’s power set and unfamiliarity would fit right in.
- Due to the current global situation, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (Part One) has been pushed back from its original April 2022 release date to October 7, 2022.
The first trailer
The first trailer for Sony’s planned sequel, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, has arrived. Moreover, there is a synopsis previewing Miles Morales’ continue adventures as the web-slinger. As shown in the newly released trailer, Miles will be pushed back into the lunacy of the universe. The official logline suggests that he will team up with a slew of new “Spider-People” to hunt down the current unknown adversary.
Miles Morales returns for the next chapter of the Oscar-winning Spider-Verse saga, an epic adventure that will transport Brooklyn’s full-time, friendly neighborhood Spider-Man across the Multiverse to join forces with Gwen Stacy and a new team of Spider-People to face off against a villain more powerful than anything they have ever encountered, says the press release.
Many more Spider-People
At this moment, nothing is known about which Spider-Persons will be brought into the conflict. Although we have learned that Takuya Yamashiro, the “Japanese Spider-Man” from the 1978 Spider-Man series, will appear in the film alongside Jessica Drew, AKA Spider-Woman, played by Issa Rae. The teaser also confirms the return of Hailee Steinfeld as Gwen Stacy and Miguel O’Hara, AKA Spider-Man 2099, who was voiced by Oscar Isaac and appeared briefly in a post-credits sequence at the end of the original Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. There are undoubtedly many more Spider-People to be discovered.
Producers Chris Miller and Phil Lord have previously hinted that the highly anticipated sequel will feature a slew of new Spider-Variants. “I think there’s a handful [of viable characters], and I don’t want to say too much since the Spider-Man universes now have a vast variety of people.” Miller clarified. It’s also a lot of fun to think about picking ones you haven’t seen before or having something intriguing to say about them.
The mystery behind the other characters
The adversary is now even more mysterious than which other Spider-Men and -Women will arrive. According to a recent rumor saying that Miles Morales will be tormented across the Spider-Verse by the obscure Spider-Man and Daredevil villain, The Spot. This lesser-known Marvel villain has the ability to access and operate interdimensional portals that become stuck to his skin as a result of a classic comic book lab mishap. The Spot can teleport himself or any part of his body. It comes in handy in battle, though he mostly just uses the portals, or spots, to make his superhuman opponents punch themselves in the face. While The Spot’s presence in the Spider-Verse is far from guaranteed, the character’s power set and unfamiliarity would fit right in.

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (Part One) is produced by Columbia Pictures and Sony Pictures Animation in association with Marvel and distributed by Sony Pictures Releasing.
