Swinging Into Summer Sweetness
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse has been hyped up as far back as 2018, when the after-credits footage revealed the antagonist of the next chapter. The first film, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, introduced audiences to Miles Morales, a young boy who witnessed the untimely death of Peter Parker. But after a night involving a strange spider, Miles is soon tangled up in the antics of a team of universe-jumping Spider-Men. Eventually, Miles discovers how he can become the best Spider-Man he can be, and earns his own title. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse was widely praised by critics, comic fans, and general audiences alike for its colorful animation, soundtrack, and powerful superhero message. The film won the Golden Globe, Critic’s Choice Award, and Academy Award for Best Animated Feature.
In Across the Spider-Verse, Miles is back and ready to face the next chapter of his story. After reuniting with Gwen, Miles is introduced to a special team of Spiders tasked with defending the Multiverse from all kinds of danger. But after a conflict involving different options on how to handle a new villain, Miles becomes the new target of millions of different Spiders! Considering the fame of its predecessor, Sony is promising big things with Across the Spider-Verse. With a 140 minute (2 hours and 20 minutes) runtime, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse will be one of the longest running major studio animated films.
