Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse Fans Are All Saying The Same Thing About The Trailer's Visuals

The new trailer for "Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse" doesn't mess around. It delivers dozens of Spider-heroes jumping across the screen. There's an emotional heart that carries over from "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse," as Miles Morales (voiced by Shameik Moore) and Gwen Stacy (Hailee Steinfeld) pick up their budding, universes-spanning connection. Meanwhile, Peter B. Parker (Jake Johnson) has gotten over his various issues, to the point that he now appears to be a proud father. 

Still, while it's great to see what old favorites have been up to, a sequel needs to deliver on the new things, as well — and "Across the Spider-Verse" hits a home run on that front, as well. With a cast of new characters led by Issa Rae's motorcycle-riding Spider-Woman and Oscar Isaacs' Spider-Man 2099, it's clear that this trip into — or rather, across — the Spider-Verse will have at least as much going on as the beloved first movie does. 

New characters and plot teases aside, though, there's one particular aspect that quite literally draws the eye, here. Considering the visual delights "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse" offers, there's little doubt that fans have great expectations for the upcoming sequel — especially after the news that "Across the Spider-Verse" will use distinct art styles for its various universes surfaced. With this in mind, fans have clearly paid careful attention to the trailer's look ... and luckily for the movie, they seem to be in agreement about the visuals.

Fans are loving the trailer's visual styles

The "Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse" trailer offers a sneak peek at the many animation styles in the movie, from the classic "Into the Spider-Verse" style of Miles' world to the shining lights and strange physics of the place where the Spider-people meet, and the subtly different art styles of the characters. Fans may have been expecting a lot, but from the looks of it, the new trailer delivers all they wanted — and then some. YouTube commenters aren't always kind, but this particular trailer has even this tough crowd gasping in awe.

"The quality of the visuals are 10/10. Love how they seamlessly blend the different animation styles together," commenter Ne0s wrote in appreciation. "One thing I love about these movies is the art design! It's honestly amazing," AkdrzlLOL agreed. "Once again, the Spider-Verse has exceeded all expectations for the animation medium," YouTube commenter Hollywood Kid praised in their turn. 

That's pretty high praise, but it's no fluke, as YouTube's not the only place showering the trailer with appreciation. 

Twitter appreciates the trailer's beauty

Along with YouTube fans, Twitter users have also been quick to note just how very, very beautiful the trailer for "Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse" is. "It just looks so good and it's almost here I am being patient/awfully chill," actor Seth Green tweeted about the trailer. "The visuals are gorgeous and I can't wait to see all of the Spider-Variants," @OwennZo wrote. "Across the Spiderverse trailer was stunning," @sleepyaeren opined. 

All in all, it appears that the visuals of the new trailer for "Across the Spider-Verse" have earned plenty of brownie points from the fandom. As an added bonus speaking in the movie's favor, even its undeniable impressiveness manages to avoid revealing too much of the movie's full powers. We've already seen some glimpses of the six distinct art styles the movie will feature (per Empire), and it's all been eye candy. Imagine how pretty the whole movie will be when it unfolds in all its visual glory. Imagine how the "Across the Spider-Verse" villain, The Spot, will affect the visuals with his powers, which co-director Joaquim Dos Santos has compared to a living ink.    

"Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse" will premiere its visual feast on June 2, 2023.
