The first teaser for “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse” was released in December last year. It picks up from where the 2018 movie left off, with Spider-Man Miles Morales reuniting with Gwen Stacy after she jumped into his universe.
“Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse” is directed by Joaquim Dos Santos, Kemp Powers and Justin K. Thompson. Its voice actors include Shameik Moore (Spider-Man Miles Morales), Hailee Steinfeld (Gwen Stacy) and Oscar Isaac (Spider-Man 2099). /ra
