Sony’s spreading and sprawling Spider-Verse is said to have been getting “bigger,” the producers “Phil Lord” and “Christopher Miller” seem to have recently hinted at CinemaCon, the annual exhibition trade show which is currently underway in Las Vegas.
After the turning of “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” into a sort of critical and commercial smash, the filmmakers have now hyped up the crowd of a movie theater owners by showing an extra exclusive look at the very first 15 minutes of the follow-up called “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse.” Lord and Miller have also announced the next installment, previously denoted and named “Part II,” will now be titled “Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse.”
Sony Pictures chairman “Tom Rothman” introduced Lord and Miller, referring to their animated films as the “singularly innovative franchise.”
Before unveiling the never-seen-before footage of the “Across the Spider-Verse,” which seems to have continued the story of Miles Morales (voiced by Shameik Moore), Lord and Miller teased some of the details about the sequel, which takes place revolving around the six universes. (The original had only transpired in one universe only). They are also said to have upped the body count. The first part of the movie had 40 characters and the sequel now has 240.
“Across the Spider-Verse” seems to start on the Earth-65, putting the spotlight directly on “Gwen Stacy” a.k.a. Spider-Woman (voiced by “Hailee Steinfeld”). While she is at home, she seems to have got word that “Adrian Toomes”, the villain who is also said to be known as Vulture, is wreaking havoc in the “Guggenheim Museum” in Manhattan. She immediately swings into action, trying to find the popular landmark in shambles and fending off the chaos all around her.
