Miles Morales returns in first ‘Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse’ trailer

It’s been a long wait, but Miles Morales is finally ready to go back to the Spider verse.

Sony dropped the first full trailer for Spider-Man: About the Spider-Verse on Tuesday, following Shameik Moore’s Brooklyn-based web-slinger as he and Gwen Stacy (Hailee Steinfeld) travel the multiverse. The new trailer comes almost exactly four years after the first Spider verse, an instant classic that won the Oscar for Best Animated Feature. (Many, including this writer, would argue that this is the best animated superhero movie of all time.)

So, it’s safe to say that About the Spider-Verse is highly anticipated – and the new trailer gives our best look yet at Miles’ interdimensional adventures. The 2018 movie was largely set in Miles’ universe, as a crew of several Spideys traveled to him. The sequel flips the script and follows Miles (voiced by Moore) as he ventures into other dimensions for the first time and must face a new threat. Several well-known voices return, including Steinfeld as Spider-Gwen and Oscar Isaac as Spider-Man 2099/Miguel O’Hara (who made a brief cameo in the opening credits of the first film).

The new cast also includes Issa Rae as Jessica Drew/Spider-Woman, Daniel Kaluuya as Spider-Punk, Jorma Taccone as the Vulture and Jason Schwartzman as the Spot – a nefarious supervillain with the ability to open portals between universes.

Writer-producers Phil Lord and Chris Miller previously told EW that Miles visits a slew of other universes, each with its own unique style. “Each dimension looks and feels radically different from all the others,” the pair previously said. “They all look like they were drawn by a different artist.”

About the Spider-Verse has had a long journey to theaters. Sony almost immediately announced plans for a sequel after the first Spider verse opened in 2018, but since then the movie has endured several pandemic-related delays and been pushed back from 2022 to 2023. Now, About the Spider-Verse will hit theaters on June 2, 2023, while a planned third film, Beyond the Spider-Verse, is scheduled for March 2024.

Joaquim Dos Santos, Kemp Powers and Justin K. Thompson direct About the Spider-Verse, taking over from original directors Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey and Rodney Rothman. Lord and Miller wrote the script with Dave Callaham (Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings).
