A short trailer for “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (Part One)” arrived late last year as a two-minute first look, which teased the return of Hailee Steinfeld. as Gwen Stacy, aka Spider-Gwen, as well as introducing Spider-Man 2099, a high-tech take on the far-future web-slinger who was first seen in the post-credits stinger scene at the end of “Into the Spider-Verse”.
The trailer opens with Miles Morales in his childhood bedroom, enjoying the familiar tune of Post Malone’s “Sunflower” – the hit song from the first film’s soundtrack – when he is interrupted by Gwen , who passes through a multiverse portal on his bed. He is embarrassed by the memories of his childhood scattered around the room, and when Gwen asks him, “Do you want to get out of here?” he told her with shame: “I am being punished.”
Spider-Man, however, is ungrounded, as Gwen points out, and Miles crosses the boundaries between worlds, emerging in an unknown version of New York where he is thrown into a fight sequence with Spider-Man 2099 before the title. .
Given that the first film featured a slew of alternate Spider-Men pouring into Miles’ universe, it seems fitting that the sequel would have him travel to another universe himself. Sony Pictures says the young hero will “team up with Gwen Stacy and a new team of Spider-People to take on a villain more powerful than anything they’ve ever faced.”
