Miles Morales, played by Shameik Moore, returns in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 2, along with Spider-Gwen, played by Hailee Steinfeld, and Peter B. Parker, played by Jake Johnson. Miles teams up with a multiverse Spider-Men team in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, including Daniel Kaluuya’s Spider-Punk, Issa Rae’s Spider-Woman, and Oscar Isaac’s Spider-Man 2099, only for a new threat to test both group’s cohesion and Miles’ abilities as a hero.
Following the release of the new trailer for Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, Spider-Man fans on social media are closely analyzing the new footage in an effort to spot new incarnations of the wall-crawler. Along with Spider-Man 2099, some viewers have also spotted other well-known, enduring variants from the comics, such as the Superior Spider-Man, who is controlled by Otto Octavius, who was first introduced under Dan Slott’s direction, as well as the Spinerret and Spiderling, an alternate May Jane Watson and Annie, her daughter with Peter, from the Renew Your Vows storyline. The Spider-Man from the short-lived 1999 Spider-Man Unlimited animated series was also quickly recognized by fans, along with other Spider-Men based on Insomniac’s video game interpretation of the character.

Fans Of Spider-Man Might Enjoy Across The Spider-Verse More Than No Way Home
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse will expand on the first movie and take the Spider-Verse concept farther than it has ever been on the big screen with Miles facing the interdimensional portal-creating villain The Spot (voiced by Jason Schwartzman). Across the Spider-Verse will feature an even larger cast of spider-powered heroes than the original movie, introducing viewers to a number of well-known spider-folk from across the page, screen, and video games. Spider-Man: No Way Home gave viewers a multiversal story that honored the hero’s live-action movie legacy. The film’s creators and producers, Phil Lord and Chris Miller, have also hinted that it will incorporate a variety of artistic mediums and promise that it will be even more striking visually than previous Spider-Man movies.
In advance of the release of this Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse trailer, Miller has also hinted at a possible appearance by Tom Holland’s Spider-Man while highlighting the nearly limitless potential of the multiverse that makes anything possible. Cameo appearances by Tom Holland, Tobey Maguire, & Andrew Garfield were considered for Into the Spider-Verse but ultimately dropped by Sony to avoid confusion among viewers. Although it is possible that Sony had the confidence to let the live-action Spider-Men make an appearance, bridging the two media and enabling Across the Spider-Verse to truly celebrate the hero’s lengthy cinematic history. This is because general viewers are now very familiar with the concept of the multiverse in both animation and live-action.
Despite having to wait over six months for the June 2023 release of Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, keen-eyed fans immediately started delving into the movie’s most recent trailer. Although the trailer was carefully edited to avoid giving away too much of the sequel’s plot, it is obvious from the numerous and varied new Spider-Men that the movie will live up to the loving homages to the works that inspired them that were paid in the original. Additionally, since Spider-Man: Across the Spider-multiverse Verse’s footage is only partially shown in the new trailer, more recognizable Spider-Verse characters might still be kept a secret until the eagerly anticipated animated sequel finally hits theaters.
