Each New Spider-Verse Has A Different Art Style In Spider-Man Sequel
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse producers discuss the sequel's mind-boggling art styles, which will be different in each Spidey dimension.
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse producers have teased that fans should be ready for some “mind-boggling” new art in the upcoming two-part sequel. The last few years for Spider-Man in media have been some of the character’s greatest ones yet. Within the last five years, the MCU has completed its Spider-Man trilogy, with Tom Holland’s Peter Parker coming face to face with Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire’s respective versions of the web-slinger. In the world of video games, Spider-Man PS4 and Spider-Man: Miles Morales became instant hits, with a sequel already on the way. Then, there is also the Oscar-winning Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, a game-changing animated adventure that brought Miles Morales to the big screen.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse was not only Miles’ big introduction to theater audiences, but the film served as a vehicle to help establish Marvel’s beloved Spider-Verse concept. As Miles becomes the next web-slinger in this world, he also shared the screen with other Spider-People across the multiverse. The film’s massive success prompted Sony to begin fleshing out the new franchise, including plans for a Spider-Woman spinoff project. The plans for the Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse sequel got so big that Sony ended up splitting it into two parts, with Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (Part 1) hitting theaters this fall.
While Sony is keeping most details under wraps, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse producers and writers, Phil Lord and Chris Miller, have been teasing some details of the highly anticipated sequel. In a new interview with Discussing Film, the duo was asked if they could reveals anything about Across the Spider-Verse Part 1, and what fans can expect to see. While Lord cryptically said “the unexpected,” Miller got a little more specific, sharing the following:
“Yeah, I think you know, each dimension that we visit is in a different art style and that is like nothing you’ve ever seen before. It’s really mind-boggling and stupendous.”
One of the things that made the Oscar-winning Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse the iconic masterpiece that it became was its new animation style. As animated films have evolved over the decades, the creative team found a unique animation style that helped the movie stand out. Because the story included different Spider-heroes from across the multiverse, it justified why each Earth and character had its own special look. To hear that this will also be the case for Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse helps build up hype for the two-part story. This will especially be relevant for someone like Spider-Man 2099, given the character’s futuristic setting, as audiences only got a brief taste of his world in the first Spider-Verse installment.
There is still so much that is unknown about Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, and there has been plenty of speculation around who else may appear in the sequel. So far, it has been confirmed that the returning core characters will be joined by Spider-Woman and Takuya Yamashiro, respectively. Outside of that, it is unclear what other Spider-doppelgangers will be making it into the story. However, since Lord and Miller are hyping each dimension doing something “mind-boggling and stupendous,” it’s fair to assume that Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse may have some surprising and unexpected additions from the Spider-Verse lore beyond just its art style.
