Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse was a sensational hit when it premiered in 2018. The Sony production veered away from the Disney/MCU style of Spider-Man and focused on Miles Morales. The studio weaved a poignant origin story for the character's feature film debut alongside a truly gorgeous art style.
A sequel was quickly greenlit and has been eagerly anticipated by fans. Building on the foundations of Into The Spider-Verse, Across The Spider-Verse looks to expand the universe of the original film, once asking the question "What does it mean to be Spider-Man?" while also avoiding simply making the same film twice. Instead of Miles learning the ropes, his abilities and ideology will now be put to the test in myriad ways. The film also added a wealth of talent to an already stacked cast. Jason Schwartzman, Issa Rae, and Oscar Issac are just some of the A-listers joining the cast.
Reviews Love "Across The Spider-Verse"
Across The Spider-Verse premieres on June 2, but critics' reviews have now been made public. In short - they love the film. Across the Spider-Verse has opened with a 97% critic's rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Mike Ryan of Uproxx has called it "One of the most, if not the most, immersive superhero stories going, pushing far beyond the boundaries of what superhero stories should and could be." Meanwhile, Clarisse Loughrey of The Independent summarized the film as "Out of every multiverse, this is the easiest to root for."
The positive praise continued. Empire Magazine's Ben Travis noting that "Across The Spider-Verse cranks every dial to 11, and somehow doesn't collapse in on itself. Visually astonishing, emotionally powerful, narratively propulsive - it's another masterpiece." However, not every critic was a fan. Tim Robey of The Telegraph argued that the film "gets drunk on itself - sometimes sad-drunk to the brink of a hangover, slurrily outstaying its welcome." Despite some detractors, it's clear that fans should prepare themselves for another powerfully emotional, visually stunning spectacle. Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse releases in the United States on June 2. Follow all the latest film news here at HotNewHipHop.
