Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse

Across the Spider-Verse slings into theaters on June 2.

Sony has dropped a new, multiverse-bending trailer for the upcoming animated film Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, and one shot features a surprise 'Protect Trans Kids' poster.

The sequel picks up after the events of the highly acclaimed Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, and follows teenager Miles Morales (voiced by Shameik Moore) as he embarks on a multi-world adventure. Comic book fans should rejoice, as we’ll be seeing a whole host of Spider-Man variants from different universes — Spider-Man 2099, Spider-Punk, Spider-Woman, and many more.

The trailer shows Morales trying (and failing) to balance his family and social lives with his secret life of web-slinging and crime-fighting. Things get even more complicated after he’s visited by Gwen Stacy (Hailee Steinfeld), his friend and classmate, who brings him into the Multiverse to help prevent a catastrophic disaster. But when Morales clashes with the other Spider-People, he finds himself pursued by the very forces he had come to the Multiverse to save.

In one of the trailer's shots of Gwen Stacey, a 'Protect Trans Kids' poster can be seen over the doorway of what appears to be her bedroom. Fans took to Twitter to celebrate the inclusion of the poster.

Across the Spider-Verse is being co-directed by Joaquim Dos Santos, Kemp Powers, and Justin K. Thompson. Industry veterans Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are co-producing and co-writing alongside Marvel’s Dave Callahan.

The star-studded voice cast includes Oscar Isaac as Spider-Man 2099, Daniel Kaluuya as Spider-Punk, Jason Schwartzman as “Spot”, Issa Rae as Spider-Woman. The cast also features Jake Johnson, Rachel Drach, Brian Tyree Henry, Luna Lauren Vélez, and Grace Lee, among others.

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse will cover only one half of a two part story. Part two, Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse, is slated for release on March 29, 2024. Thankfully, the wait is far shorter for Across the Spider-Verse, which will premiere on June 2 of this year.
