Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse isn’t due to be released for the next 10 months, but in a surprise trailer early Sunday, Marvel and Sony Pictures gave us our first look at the sequel to the Oscar-winning Spider-Man : In the Spider-Verse. Officially, it’s Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (part one) — it’s a mouthful, I know — because the Into the Spider-Verse sequel is split into a two-parter. First Look at Spider-Man: Spider-Verse Reunites Miles Morales / Spider-Man (voiced by Shameik Moore) and his cross-dimension love interest Gwen Stacy / Spider-Woman (Hailee Steinfeld) Before they swing through other dimensions, including apparently India for some time.
Also, Sony Pictures India announced that Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse will be available in cinemas in India in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
Miles is listening to “Sunflower” – featured in Post Malone and Swae Lee’s hit song Into the Spider-Verse – when the Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (Part One) trailer opens. She has no clue that a multi-dimensional portal is open above her, through which Gwen is looking at the house. After Gwen finally grabs his attention by shouting his name, Strange Miles tries to clean up his act and inquire about his well being. “Uh, that’s a long story,” Gwen says, “is this the room you grew up in?” Miles tries to play hide-and-seek objects that aren’t very “adult” before Gwen likely spots her drawings in a book. She thinks they are good, but her face changes when she sees herself.
“I missed you too,” Gwen said to Cheeky, handing her the book back. Miles wonders what Gwen is doing here in his dimension, as he had assumed he would never see her again. “Want to get out of here?” Gwen asks him out without responding, though it’s possible that the Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (Part One) trailer is cutting something in the middle to hide spoiler-y stuff. Miles says she’s at home, and Gwen stares out the window as she says “bummer.” As Miles runs to recapture him, Gwen asks Miles: “Is Spider-Man grounded?” Miles shudders briefly, but as Gwen raises her eyes in her Spider-Woman costume, Miles seems to agree.
Cut to miles in costume being thrown through dimension portals, before we soon realize there’s a futuristic version of India cooked up by Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (part one). The background music is changed to confirm that the scene can be scored with Indian instruments. You can also see the words in Devanagari script in the background, including onomatopoeia with “New Milan Family Resto Bar” and then “Dhadam” – which is seen here in the Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (Part One) trailer The crash translates as – Spider-Man 2099 / Miguel O’Hara (Oscar Isaacs) is hurt through another portal and crashes into Miles. Soon, they are jumping from another portal to another dimension.
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is about to premiere 7 October 2022 in cinemas around the world. In India, Across the Spider-Verse will release in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
