Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse Trailer Includes a Sweet Stan Lee Tribute


The official trailer for “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse” subtly pays homage to Stan Lee, the man who co-created the titular superhero.

On December 13, Sony Pictures Entertainment released the latest trailer for its upcoming computer-animated action film. The trailer uses archival footage from 2018’s “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” early in the trailer, with Lee’s voice and animated clerk Miles Morales (Shameik Moore) just beginning his journey as the new wall-crawler. Included is a scene in which he pitches the Spider-Man suit.

Including one of Lee’s last cameos is a tribute to the late writer who, along with artist Steve Ditko, introduced the character of Spider-Man in the August 1962 issue of the anthology comic Amazing Fantasy #15. We are happy for the Across the Spider-Verse team. Lee, whose family-run business would eventually lead to the birth of Marvel Comics, passed away in November 2018, about a month before the release of Into the Spider-Verse.

Why got the delayed Spider-Verse

Sony’s trailer comes a little more than a year after the first footage of the upcoming sequel dropped. In the sequel to the “Spider-Verse” film franchise, Miles, Gwen Stacy (Hailee Steinfeld), and the Spider-People take on The Spot (Jason Schwartzman), a villain covered in interdimensional portals that can travel anywhere while carrying people and objects at will They take on the challenge. Across the Spider-Verse, Jake Johnson as Peter B. Parker/Spider-Man and Oscar Isaac as Miguel O’Hara/Spider-Man 2099 return, as well as Black Panther Daniel Kaluuya as Hobie Brown/Spider-Punk and Issa Rae is joined by new Spider-Men such as Jessica Drew/Spider-Woman.

Other cast members in Spider-Man Across the Spider-Verse include New York Undercover’s Luna Lauren Velez as Rio Morales, Emmy-nominated Brian Tyree Henry as Jefferson Davis, and Miles’ guidance counsellor. Included is former Saturday Night Live star Rachel Drech, who plays. In addition, Jorma Taccone, who voiced the Green Goblin in Into the Spider-Verse, plays the Renaissance-style Vulture variant in the sequel.

Across the Spider-Verse was initially announced in November 2019, with animation production beginning the following June, creating different visual styles for the six universes visited by the film’s characters. Co-directed by Joaquim Dos Santos, Justin K. Thompson, and Kemp Powers, the film was originally scheduled to make its theatrical debut this April, but its premiere has been delayed.
