Across The Spider-Verse Will Be Even More Visually Stunning Than The First Movie

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

One of the things Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse was praised for was its fresh take on CGI animation. In an age where all CG films looked the same, Phil Lord and Chris Miller mixed things up by adding hand-drawn effects and comic book mosaic filters to create a unique look that will likely be copied by imitators in the future (the only other movie so far to use such a look, The Mitchells Vs. The Machines, was also produced by Lord and Miller).

Lord and Miller hinted this weekend that you haven’t seen anything yet. According to a new interview with the website Collider, they’re preparing some really inventive visual experiments to unleash on us all next fall in Across The Spider-Verse, the long-demanded sequel.

According to Miller, every dimension Miles Morales visits in the second movie will have its own unique artstyle. “It is, as Phil said, a very ambitious sequel, because we didn’t want to just sort of do the same thing again.”

“And so the idea that we’d be going to different dimensions really opened up an opportunity artistically to have each world have its own art style, and to be able to push the folks at ImageWorks to develop a way to have each dimension feel like it was drawn by a different artist’s hand. Seeing the development of that stuff is breathtaking, and really, it’s the reason we keep doing it, because it’s so hard to get it right.”

While they had them in the chair, Collider pressed Lord and Miller about the possibility of Tom Holland and Zendaya appearing in Across The Spider-Verse as their versions of Parker and MJ. They coyly refused to answer that question. It’s very likely to happen, especially since both actors have already expressed interest in doing voices for the film.

Spider:Man: Across The Spider-Verse (Part One) will premiere in theaters October 7, 2022.
