Directors Kemp Powers, Joaquim Dos Santos, and Justin K. Thompson have been waiting a long time to finally talk about their upcoming animated film Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse. The first entry has become a cult-classic Best Animated Feature Film Academy Award winning film and the expectations are high for its follow-up, as we once again join Miles Morales. Spider-Man is about to enter the Spider-Verse and it looks like a lot of trouble is heading his way.
In an interview with Total Film, Powers finally got the chance to share some details from the upcoming project, such s confirming once again that the Dot is the film’s main antagonist and even hinting at Gwen Stacy’s story, as she’ll face “the unique dilemma of being Gwen Stacy. She’s a vigilante seen as responsible for the death of her world’s Peter Parker. The cop in charge of tracking her down is her father.” It seems that we’ll be revisiting the original comic origin of the character, and it does make you wonder if this might connect to the larger multiverse story, which has been teased in the film#s official synopsis.
After reuniting with Gwen Stacy, Brooklyn’s full-time, friendly neighborhood Spider-Man [Morales] is catapulted across the Multiverse, where he encounters a team of Spider-People charged with protecting its very existence. But when the heroes clash on how to handle a new threat, Miles finds himself pitted against the other Spiders and must redefine what it means to be a hero so he can save the people he loves most.
Miles taking on other Spider-People from across the multiverse makes for an interesting storyline. Powers also highlights that the Spot is also no joke in this film, as his abilities will truly define the challenge that is ahead. Whatever is heading Miles’ way, he’ll have his work cut out for him.
