Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse

Columbia Pictures, Sony Pictures Animation, Marvel Entertainment, Arad Productions, Lord Miller and Pascal Pictures present a PG, 140-minute, Animation, Action, Adventure, directed by Joaquim Dos Santos, Kemp Powers, Justin K. Thompson and written by Phil Lord, Christopher Miller and Dave Callaham with a theater release date of June 2, 2023.

Well Miles Morales (voice of Shameik Moore) is Spiderman who tries his best to keep the citizens of Brooklyn, New York safe from crime. Peter Parker (voice of Jake Johnson) is gone but I guess you know that from the first film. I did not see the first one but based on the second film I’m assuming that’s a given.

A certain love interest of Miles happens to appear from the Multiverse and it just so happens to be Gwen Stacy (voice of Hailee Steinfeld) who is out to help Miles from a new very dangerous public enemy named The Spot (voice of Jason Schwartzman) who is kind of an idiot but very dangerous. It is when Miles finds out that Gwen can jump to the Multiverse that he wants to experience it as well. What he finds there is every known Spiderman to the world and beyond. Getting there was one thing getting back to help his father from danger before its too late, could be another thing! Yet after meeting Miguel O’Hara (voice of Oscar Isaac), Peter Parker and hundreds to thousands of other Spidey’s he has no purpose but to go against Miguel’s wishes and return home to help his family. But is he too late? Did he return to the right time and place? Will Gwen stick by his side to help him and maybe go against the wishes of Miguel and the Multiverse? Only time, like two and a half hours will tell when you go see this film. By the way, obviously my favorite Multiverse Spider is the cat. Loved it!

I enjoyed the film which was a screening and open to the public. I did not know the first was such a hit because there were no empty seats in the theater and the crowd was pumped. Not seeing the first personally but experiencing the second I thought it was a bit long but the music, the animation, which is so different and unusual then most and the characters were quite impressive. There were a few times I felt a bit uninformed but the writers try to fill in the gaps for the clueless like me. Obviously, I need to watch the first. I know my niece and nephew did and they loved it and can’t wait to see this one. There is never a dull moment and I enjoyed the adventures and the cast along with some cool cameos and a great cast. Based on the cheers from the crowd they loved it more than I but overall, I really liked it. Wait for the credits but not until the end to discover more.
