'Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse': Everything We Know So Far

A sequel to the Oscar-winning animated film 'Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse,' this film will detail adventures of the different Spideys through different dimensions.

Whether it be the MCU Spider-Man or Sony’s animated version of the masked character, it has been a popular iteration for the past 50 years. Therefore, even the anticipation for Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse has been astounding. After the resounding commercial and critical success of the first film, Sony decided to make to set a sequel in development.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse follows the teenager Miles Morales, a student who just started as a new student in Visions Academy, where he feels like he doesn’t belong because the school is ‘elitist.’ Upset with his father, he turns to his uncle Aaron Davis (Mahershala Ali) (whom we see a glimpse of in Spider-Man: Homecoming) and in some subway graffiti incident, he gets bitten by the fateful spider. The rest of the story follows up with him finding the Peter Parker of his universe battling with Wilson Fisk (Liev Schreiber), and the Particle Collider that might destroy the world. The collider sets in motion events that would bring Spideys from different universes.

The film ends with Fisk defeated and Miles Morales becoming a saviour for the community. However, in the mid-credits scene we see the portal open again and see Spider-Gwen make an appearance beckoning Miles to join her on another adventure.
