If it feels like a forever since the topic of the “Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse” film was discussed you’d be correct as it was just about a year ago when I last did a post on the website for our Pop Culture focuses. That brief can be found by clicking HERE if your curious but now after so very long comes the first Official Trailer for the film that will open in the coming months. Check that out along with the premise and voice casting.
Over a year after the events of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018), Miles Morales is unexpectedly approached by his love interest Gwen Stacy to complete a mission to save every universe of Spider-People from the Spot, who could cause a catastrophic disaster. Miles is up for the challenge, where he and Gwen journey through the Multiverse together and meet its protectors, a group of Spider-People known as the Spider-Society, led by Miguel O’Hara. However, Miles finds himself at odds with Miguel and the Spider-Society on how to handle the threat.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: From the look of it, this seems to be continuing the excellence that was first seen in the first film and I greatley enjoyed that one for sure. I will admit that at the onset I didn’t really like the idea of another Spider-Man but Miles Morales sure has grown on me and kudos to any of the collectors who have his very first appearance in the comic books because that is definitely climbing the Overstreet Price Guide listings. I cannot confirm my schedule on this film but its one that I will be looking to see early in the theatrical run based on my probably heading out of town in middle June for a family trip. Wrapping this one up I wonder what you out there in the readership think. Chime in down below if you have something cool to add to the mix and I will see you next time around. As always, please keep safe out there. Cheers.
