To mark the digital release of Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, a sneak peek of the film’s opening scenes has been shared online by IGN. In this highly anticipated sequel, we catch up with Gwen Stacy, who is grappling with the loss of her version of Peter Parker and the painful separation from Miles Morales, as they exist in different universes. Despite enjoying band practice, Gwen feels a deep sense of loneliness without Miles by her side, reminding us that becoming a superhero comes with its own sacrifices.
The story picks up about eighteen months after the life-changing spider bite that transformed Miles Morales into Brooklyn’s very own Spider-Man. He has been doing an admirable job of protecting the city from petty criminals until he encounters a formidable new adversary known as The Spot, played by Jason Schwartzman. The Spot holds a personal grudge against Spider-Man due to the events of the previous installment, “Into the Spider-Verse,” which caused him to lose everything. Miles now faces a thrilling battle against an enemy who can traverse the multiverse, while all he wants is to safeguard his loved ones.
However, The Spot isn’t the only challenge Miles must confront. He also faces opposition from a powerful hero from the future, Miguel O’Hara, portrayed by Oscar Isaac. O’Hara believes that each Spider person from any reality must endure specific tragedies to become the ultimate hero and prevent the multiverse from collapsing. As Miles wasn’t meant to be bitten by the spider in the first place, O’Hara sees him as an anomaly that needs to be removed to preserve the fabric of existence.
The ending of “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse” leaves audiences eagerly anticipating the next installment. Initially, the third film, titled “Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse,” was scheduled for release within a year of its predecessor. However, due to the ongoing WGA and SAG-AFTRA strike for fair wages and better working conditions, the release has been postponed. While we await a new premiere date, Marvel enthusiasts have much to anticipate before Miles’ journey reaches its thrilling conclusion on the big screen.
Excitement builds as “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse” becomes available for purchase and rent on VOD on August 8. To get a taste of the action-packed opening scenes, check out the first ten minutes of the movie below: [Link to the video].
