Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse has come out to be one of the best superhero films of the year, and the movie has just hit digital. As per the usual promotion of recently released film, Sony has released the first 10 minutes of the movie, and it gives us a good look at the origin of Spider-Gwen.
Check this out:
Not only do the first 10 minutes manage to catch the audience up with Miles’ origin story from Into the Spider-Verse, but it also goes in-depth into Spider-Gwen’s origin, including her ‘canon event’, the death of her Peter Parker, as well as all the other characters surrounding her like Captain Stacy.
We also get to watch her fight with an alternate version of the Vulture, as well as the introduction of the film’s primary antagonist Spider-Man 2099 a.k.a. Miguel O’Hara.
Though superhero films like Quantumania and Shazam! Fury of the Gods may have received mixed reviews, Across the Spider-Verse has proven that it’s not really superhero fatigue that is weighing these films down, but rather the quality of the storytelling. As long as there are huge stakes and great emotional arcs, fans will be lining up to see the film—just like they did with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
Though Beyond the Spider-Verse is promising a release next year, it’s possible that the WGA and SAG AFTRA strike will also be pushing the movie back. We’ll just have to wait and see until the studios strike a new, fair deal.
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is now available on digital.
