Spider-Man Across the Spider-Verse trailer: Is there a trailer?

The first official trailer for Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse dropped on December 13, 2022 andcan be seen below:

The trailer showed a brief recap of the events and variants we saw in the first Into the Spider-Verse, and the aftermath of the final scene when Gwen reached out to him.

The trailer shows several new variants of Spidey that we haven’t seen before including Spider-Man 2099, Spider-Woman, and Spider-Punk. However, shockingly, the trailer seems to show these Spidey variants battling Miles Morales, with Gwen Stacy saying “we’re supposed to be the good guys” which could mean that these different Spideys are going to see Miles as a threat in some way.

In addition a “First Look” teaser trailer for Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse released on December 4, 2021.

It begins with Miles in his bedroom, listening to Post Malone’s Sunflower, where he’s surprised by Spider-Gwen’s sudden arrival.

After frantically trying to hide his toys and other stuff, she asks him if he wants to get out of here. The clip then shifts to Miles falling through portals of the multiverse, where he’s pursued by Spider-Man 2099.

They fall through another portal, flying past rushing traffic while Spider-Man 2099 tries to put some sort of watch on Miles, before he slams him down.

Spider-Man Across the Spider-Verse cast: Who’s in it?

In terms of the confirmed cast members of Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, we can expect the following stars to appear:

  • Shameik Moore as Miles Morales/Spider-Man
  • Oscar Isaac as Miguel O’Hara/Spider-Man 2099
  • Hailee Steinfeld as Gwen Stacy/Spider-Gwen
  • Jake Johnson as Peter B. Parker/Spider-Man
  • Brian Tyree Henry as Jefferson Davis, Miles’s father
  • Luna Lauren Vélez as Rio Morales, Miles’s mother
  • Issa Rae as Jessica Drew/Spider-Woman
  • Jason Schwartzman as The Spot, the movie’s villain
  • Daniel Kaluuya as Hobart “Hobie” Brown/Spider-Punk
  • Jorma Taccone as The Vulture
  • Takuya Yamashiro as the Japanese Spider-Man

Isaac made his debut as Spider-Man 2099 in the post-credits scene of Into the Spider-Verse, traveling into the universe of the ’60s Spider-Man series and arguing with its Spider-Man – just like the meme.

“The thing I can say is, what makes this character so funny is that he’s the one Spider-Man that doesn’t have a sense of humor. Because all of them act like… they’re wisecracks, right? Everybody wisecracks, except this guy just doesn’t. He’s a very serious Spider-Man,” he told Screen Rant.

As for The Spot, he’s “one of the deepest cuts in Spider-Man’s rogue gallery” according to co-director Kemp Powers. “But he has a super-power that really excited our entire team: His entire body is covered in little interdimensional portals that can send him anywhere he wants to go,” he added.

“We thought it would be really cool if the portals felt like living ink that had spilled or splattered on the comic artist’s drawing. His very simple power provided endless exciting challenges and permutations for our team.”

Spider-Man Across the Spider-Verse rumored characters

Now, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse will feature 240 characters and take place across six universes – so we can expect a few different Spider-People to show up that haven’t been announced thus far.

Tom Holland’s Spider-Man is rumored to make an appearance, as per The Cosmic Circus, alongside possible cameos from Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire’s webheads following their comeback in No Way Home.

The Spider-Man from Insomniac’s hit PlayStation game is also rumored to appear, likely to be voiced by Yuri Lowenthal, but this hasn’t been confirmed.

It’s unclear whether Nicolas Cage will return as Spider-Man Noir alongside the other variants seen in Into the Spider-Verse, such as Kimiko Glenn as Peni Parker and John Mulaney as Spider-Ham.

Now we’re stepping into major pinch-of-salt territory. The following characters have all been attached to rumors regarding Across the Spider-Verse: Spider-Man India, Superior Spider-Man, the Scarlet Spiders, Silk, Venom, Kraven the Hunter, and Carnage.

Co-writer Christopher Miller did give the following caveat: “To clarify, amidst the universe-hopping there are 240 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.”

Spider-Man Across the Spider-Verse plot: What is it about?

The official synopsis reads: “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 with a villain more powerful than anything they have ever encountered.”

And, as teased by the writers to Entertainment Weekly, “Miles will reunite with some old friends and meet…. a lot of new ones.”

We’ll update this article upon further announcements about Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse.
