‘Across the Spider-Verse’ Co-director Joaquim Dos Santos Says the Sequel is “Five Films in One”

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is one of the year’s most anticipated films. The sequel to 2018’s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse has high standards to live up to given how beloved and nearly universally praised its predecessor was and the team of creatives behind the it knew they couldn’t get away with “more of the same.” To that end, the film is set to take Miles Morales,voiced one again by Shameik Moore, on a trip that co-writer Phil Lord says “goes hard.” What story did Lord and co-writer Christopher Miller concoct that lead Moore to proclaim that the sequel’s story “tops the first”? Nothing short of a cross-dimensioal adventure set to take Miles to FIVE different universes.

Our contract with the audience is to bring them something they’ve never seen before

As opposed to the much criticized dimension hopping in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, each of Across the Spider-Verse ‘s alternate dimensions is a “robust place” according to Co-director Joaquim Dos Santos. “We’ve made five films in one,” continued Dos Santos, referring to the five different universes Miles and audiences will visit in the project. One of those universes, a 2099 universe set in Nueva York, is home to Oscar Isaac‘s Miguel O’Hara, who serves as a prickly companion of Miles and Gwen Stacey, whose Earth-65 will be explored as well. Across the Spider-Verse will also visit Mumbatten, home to Spider-Man Pavitr Prabhakar, New London, home to the rad Spider-Punk, and another dimension that’s remaining top secret for the time being.

If the sky was the limit last time, the sky is now the floor. We’re stepping on it and looking at Jupiter!

After a long, long wait, fans of the animated adventure can start counting in terms of weeks and days now as Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse‘s June 2nd release date is almost here!
