‘Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse’ First Footage Details Arrive!
The highly anticipated sequel to one of the biggest animated films of all time has just given select fans a sneak peek, as Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse first footage details arrive!
There is no denying the reality that Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse has embraced a very specific niche as one of the best-animated features, as well as one of the best comic book adaptations in recent memory.
The 2018 film by Sony was a masterclass in creativity, ambition, and the human element in a story; all rooted in the firm understanding of who the character of Spider-Man is for any generation.
Miles Morales has embraced a very specific place in the hearts of comic book fans, and this film was the perfect origin that saw the character find his place as the heir apparent to the Spider-Man mantle; a role that required his own growth to fill.
With the long-awaited sequel revealing gits first trailer just a few months ago, fans have been clamoring for any amount of information regarding the upcoming sequel; which was actually gifted to a select few in the audiences at the recent Sony panel at CinemaCon.
First reported by Screen Rant, the first 15 minutes of the film were shown to those in attendance, as the Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse first footage, details arrive at those of us who couldn’t be there.
The footage reportedly follows the footage fans have already seen, and starts with Gwen sneaking back into her own universe, where her dad tells her, “we caught a break in the Spider-Woman case.”
The details of the footage state, “It’s obvious that she and dad have a strained relationship. The Vulture is then seen attacking the city, prompting Gwen to change into her Spider-Gwen costume. Her father is already on the scene and tells fellow officers to look out for Spider-Woman.”
The description then notes, “Gwen keeps him [Her Father] safe and runs inside to fight Vulture. He looks wild. He’s sepia-toned and doesn’t match her animation style, looking like an Italian Renaissance sketch. He also has a funny Italian accent. suddenly, a portal opens as Spider-Man appears…”
The description notes that this Spider-Man is also in a different animation style, as the two heroes proceed to beat him,
The footage reportedly, “revealed that the end of the first movie messed up the multiverse and bad guys are getting shot in both wrong dimensions. Spider-Man 2099 calls for back-up, and Jessica Drew comes out on a motorcycle. She’s a pregnant lady with a big afro, rocking a 70s vibe.”
The footage then concludes with Gwen unmasking herself in front of her father, being saved before getting arrested, and Miles at a parent-teacher meeting in which he states that he wants to study interdimensional travel.
The released Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse first footage does set up an interesting premise in which villains are being thrown in alternate realities, and Miles’ relationship with his parents will be tested as his journey ultimately begins to unfold.
