What's The Song In The Second Across The Spider-Verse Trailer?

The second trailer for "Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse" is here, and it's pulling out all the stops. While previous trailers still retained an air of mystery surrounding the film, this new look shows off in full-force what Miles Morales' iteration of the web-slinging superhero is up against this time around. The answer? Oh, just the reality-defying supervillain Spot, his corrupt multiversal Spider-Man counterparts...and a B in Spanish class.

There's a ton for fans to unpack throughout the trailer, from crucial narrative plot points that are sure to generate some last-minute theories to a plethora of deep-cut Spidey lore references hidden in the backdrop. Of course, the thing that some fans might be most focused on is the rousing track that the sneak preview is set to. If it sounds rather familiar to fans of "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse," that's because it is. The song "What's Up Danger" by Blackway and Black Caviar makes its grand return from the first movie here, but it's sounding quite a bit different.

What's Up Danger is iconic to Miles' Spider-Man

It makes sense that "What's Up Danger" would return for the second "Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse" trailer. Apart from "Sunflower" by Post Malone and Swae Lee, the song is arguably the most iconic track for this version of Spider-Man. In the first movie, it plays during one of the most hype-inducing sequences, as Miles works past the tragedy of losing his uncle, develops his very own Spider suit, and puts it to the test in a jaw-dropping visual showcase across the New York skyline. Essentially, it's the track that plays when Miles fully embraces his role as Spider-Man.

The version of "What's Up Danger" in the trailer sounds a little different from how it did in the first movie. It's similarly mixed with composer Daniel Pemberton's score, but it sounds a bit more frantic with a more intense build-up as it goes along. Nonetheless, it seems a fitting piece of music for what appears to be Miles' core conflict in "Across the Spider-Verse." First, he had to accept becoming Spider-Man. Now, he has to go toe-to-toe with some of his strongest counterparts to defend his own path as Spider-Man. There's danger aplenty on the horizon, but the young hero is rising to meet it.

Only time will tell if "What's Up Danger" was simply brought back for the "Across the Spider-Verse" trailer, or if it will end up making an appearance in the film proper when it releases on June 2.
