Spider-Man fans rejoice! Across the Spider-Verse is hitting cinemas in a matter of days, and there's already a follow-up in the works!
Across the Spider-Verse continues the breath-taking action-packed story of Miles Morales, a 15-year-old kid from New York who is still reeling from his adventures in the multi-verse in 2018's Into The Spider-Verse.
Don't get me wrong - he's still fighting crime in New York as any friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man would. But it's hard to concentrate when you know for a fact that there are an infinite number of Spider-Men out there who you'll probably never see again.
That is until Gwen Stacy, aka Spider-Gwen, shows up in his universe again to take down a villain known as The Spot. It isn't long before the two set off on another adventure through the multi-verse - though Miles wasn't exactly invited to join.
The film features a huge gang of all-new Spider-Men, Spider-Women, Spider-Horses, and Spider-Cars from different universes who promise to give fans a spectacle like no other.
And as if the prospect of all that isn't exciting enough, producers Phil Lord and Chris Miller confirmed to UNILAD that we'll definitely be seeing Miles Morales and the gang one more time in an eventual third film, completing their Spider-Verse trilogy.
"This film is the middle of a trilogy and the final film is the third film," said Chris.
Phil then joked: "I would say that we have a plan more than we’ve ever had."
"That is true," Chris confessed.
"We normally are kind of winging it along the way, giving ourselves problem, painting ourselves in a corner, trying to find our way out. But this time, we actually know where going."
Thank goodness for that, too, because Across The Spider-Verse promises to have viewers on the edge of their seats with a massive cliff-hanger.
Chris and Phil, of course, have a whole heap of wildly successful franchises under their belt at this point in their career, including the Lego Movies, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, and the iconic Jump Street films.
So, to say this is the most thought they've put into a film series so far is really saying something.
Though, when you're making your own Spider-Man franchise at the same time that Disney's MCU is still making theirs, precautions obviously have to be made.
"We try to stay abreast of what one another are doing but we like to think that a rising tide lifts all boats," said Phil of the two Spider-Man two series.
"We just try to make the most surprising thing that we can and just stay in communication so that we don’t do the same thing.
"We just try to stay collaborative and, you know, we can write our way out of anything.”
Across the Spider-Verse hits cinemas on 2 June. And trust us, this one is a must-watch.
