The Second Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse Trailer Confirms A Link To The MCU

Is your Spider-Sense tingling? That might just be because the second trailer for "Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse" has finally dropped. It's quite a meaty trailer, and there's plenty of bits that are sure to get both fans of the web-slinging superhero and animation die-hards hyped.

The pre-release marketing build-up for "Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse" has only continued to heat up as things go along. 2021 brought with it the very first look at the hotly-anticipated sequel to 2018's "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse," showcasing a slightly older Miles Morales and Gwen Stacy while teasing that the movie would take place across different universes. The first official trailer took things a step further, revealing that Miles and Gwen will find themselves at odds with their multiversal counterparts and tossing in all sorts of blink-and-you'll-miss-it, small "Spider-Man"-related details. Now, the second trailer has blasted the floodgates open completely, giving fans a cavalcade of intriguing plot teases and neon-soaked visuals to marvel (ha!) at.

Across the Spider-Verse is firing on all cylinders

The second trailer for "Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse" reiterates that this outing is going to be anything but a traditional Spidey tale. Rather than simply featuring a main villain from the character's massive rogues' gallery, it seems that most of the conflict will stem from Miles going up against his own counterparts in the Spider-Force. Intriguingly, Oscar Isaac's Spider-Man 2099 also confirms that the Spider-Verse and the Marvel Cinematic Universe are linked when he says, "Don't even get me started on Doctor Strange and the little nerd back on Earth-199999" (that's the designated number for the MCU, according to "The Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe").

In the visuals department, the trailer continues to deliver on the unique and colorful spectacle that "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse" first developed. Not only is the original movie's signature comic-book-brought-to-life look back in full force, but there's other animation styles on display for some of the various characters and universes that Spider-Man will be traveling to this time around. By all accounts, the movie is going to be nothing short of a feast for the eyes.

There's plenty to get excited about in this latest trailer for "Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse." Audiences don't have to wait too much longer for the film's release either, as it's set to debut in theaters on June 2, 2023.
