Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse First 15 Minutes Shown


CinemaCon is underway this week at Las Vegas’ Caesars Palace and Sony is pulling out all the stops. Shortly after the studio announced El Muerto, a Spider-Man spinoff featuring Bad Bunny, producers Phil Lord and Chris Miller arrive on-stage to introduce the first 15 minutes of Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (Part One).

Lord and Miller led over 1,000 people working on the movie, which Lord says is the biggest crew ever. “We had to try and break new ground, so it’s way bigger,” the producer said on-stage. “The number of characters [is massive]. The first movie has 40. This one has 240 characters.”

The producer then went on to say that the film starts in Earth-65, the home world of Spider-Gwen (Hailee Steinfeld) before continuing on Earth-1610, the primary continuity in which Shameik Moore’s Miles Morales lives. Miller says six different universes are involved in the movie “so far.”

In the footage revealed, Issa Rae plays Jessica Drew, a Black woman who is five months pregnant during the movie. She has similar powers to Spider-Man but wears a different black and red suit. She also travels using a motorcycle. Iconic Spider-Man villain Vulture was also seen in the footage shown.

A full description of the footage, as provided by ComicBook.com’s Cam Bonomolo in attendance at CinemaCon.

“Earth 65. Gwen Stacy Spider-Woman sneaks through the window of her apartment building. Her father, Capt. George Stacy, is doing dishes. ‘We caught a break in the Spider-Man case,'” he says. A hostage situation at the Guggenheim museum. The Vulture. He speaks Italian – his dialogue is stylized subtitles. Da Vinci style. Gwen quips he’s a ‘renaissance man.’ He has lethal claws, a 40-foot wingspan of razor blade sharp wings, and modern weaponry like drones. Gwen suits up and swings into action. Spider-Gwen vs. Vulture in the museum. Vulture pins her and is about to cut her to shreds – ‘This is THE dumbest way to die!’ Suddenly, a multiversal portal opens. A red glowing web shoots out. Out leaps Spider-Man 2099 from Earth-298. She asks if he’s ‘the Blue Panther.’ He’s from another dimension. Spider-Woman and ’99 double team Vulture. ’99 begrudgingly asks Lyla, his quirky virtual assistant, to send backup – he grumbles again, ‘Call for backup!’ Jessica Drew, the Spider-Woman, rides out of the portal on a super-spy motorcycle. She wears a spy like suit of red and black. Gwen notices her big belly – Drew proudly says she’s five months pregnant. Outside, ’99 wrestles with the Vulture up in the air. In shadow, he bears his spider-like teeth — almost like a vampire. They’re interrupted by a police helicopter. The Vulture knocks it out of the sky. It falls, tumbling down towards a crowd of onlookers below. Gwen, Miguel, and Drew race into action – Gwen does a dazzling, dizzying move as she leaps over the chopper, spinning a web to catch the helicopter. Miguel and Drew help slow its descent with webs – together, the trio catch the copter in a web just before it crushes the people below. In the wreckage, Gwen stumbles – exhausted. She tries to catch her breath when a shadowy figure sneaks behind her. It’s her father, gun drawn. ‘You are under arrest for the murder of Peter Parker!’ Trapped, Spider-Gwen unmasks to reveal the shamed face of Gwen Stacy. ‘I thought about telling you about Peter,’ she says, ‘I didn’t know it was him!”I’m not a murderer… I’m your daughter,’ Captain Stacy reads her her rights. She’s under arrest. Miguel saves her with a futuristic device that temporarily traps Captain Stacy in a force field bubble. Seeing she’s upset, Drew doesn’t want to leave Gwen behind as Miguel opens a portal. Miguel gives her a temporal wrist device. Gwen looks at it, considers going with them – we cut to BROOKLYN. Earth-610 Miles is Spidey-ing around and having a blast. But he’s late. His parents meet with his guidance counselor. Something triggers his spider sense. Miles makes an excuse and rushes out. ‘Your son is lying to you,’ the guidance counselor tells Miles’ mom. ‘And I know you know it.'”

Starring Shameik Moore as Miles Morales / Spider-Man, Hailee Steinfeld as Gwen Stacy, Jake Johnson as Peter B. Parker, Oscar Isaac as Miguel O’Hara / Spider-Man 2099, and Issa Rae as the Jessica Drew Spider-Woman, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse swings into theaters on June 2, 2023.
