After May 5th (Guardians of the Galaxy premiere), we can officially say Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is the next Marvel film hitting theaters. With 2018’s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse experiencing rave reviews and success, the anticipated sequel is back after a disappointing Covid delay in which the film was originally supposed to premiere last year. As the saying goes “All good things are worth the wait,” and if Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is anything like its predecessor, then the wait shall indeed be worth it. Here’s everything you need to know about the film ahead of its June 2nd release.
