We are back in the cinema for our animated adventure Spider-Man Across The Spider-Verse Review. The second part in the Spider-Verse trilogy we loved the style, characters and heart. We discuss all of our favourite moments from the movie in our latest podcast.
Synopsis for our Spider-Man Across The Spider-Verse Review
Sixteen months after the destruction of the Alchemax collider and back on Earth-65 Gwen Stacy is struggling to live up to the expectations of her father, who does not know she is Spider-Woman and is hunting her in revenge because of his belief that she caused this universe's Peter Parker's death.
One night, after hearing about a possible intruder in the Guggenheim Museum, she heads over to confront the threat, only to run into a Renaissance-themed Vulture that comes from an alternate universe. She is helped by Miguel O'Hara and Jessica Drew, who arrive through portals and subdue Vulture. In the aftermath, Gwen reveals herself to her father, who is distraught and attempts to arrest her. Drew suggests to a reluctant O'Hara that Gwen join the "Spider-Society," to which he begrudgingly accepts.
Back on Earth-1610, in Brooklyn, Miles Morales is adapting to being Spider-Man as well as struggling to live up to his parents' expectations while missing Gwen. On the day of his evaluation at school with his parents, he visits a convenience store where he encounters the low-level villain The Spot, a scientist who got infused with portals on his body in the aftermath of the explosion of the collider at Alchemax. After a brief fight, Miles subdues The Spot.
But The Spot, who is being surveilled by Gwen, is not all that he appears as he blames Miles for his creation. He brings Miles to Alchemax, where he transports himself into a void and begins using his portals to travel to other universes with the Alchemax collider becoming more and more powerful as he states his aim to take revenge on his nemesis Miles Morales.
While on Earth-1610 Gwen sees Miles but tracking The Spot is instructed that Miles can’t travel with them to capture The Spot. They take a portal back to Earth-928 where they lead the Spider Society to continue their investigation. But unbeknownst to them, Miles follows them into the portal and ends up in Mumbattan on Earth-50101, they encounter Pavitr Prabhakar / Spider-Man India and Hobie Brown / Spider-Punk before confronting The Spot in the Alchemax collider who successfully absorbs the device's power before escaping.
Mumbattan begins falling apart from the disruption of a "canon event" after Miles saves a captain, who turns out to be Prabhakar's girlfriend's father. At the headquarters on Earth-928, where hundreds of Spider-Man variants reside Miguel O'Hara, tells Miles that he is risking the destruction of the multiverse, by preventing "canon" events that hold the fabric of the multiverse together, and that all Spider-Men must suffer sacrifices to maintain a stable multiverse.
Realising that his own father, newly appointed as captain, will die at the hands of The Spot and is a canon event, Miles breaks free of the Spider Society, heading back to his home world to save his father. Arriving back in what he thinks is his apartment, Miles realises that something is not right about this Earth that places him and his father in dire straits.
