Shameik Moore, the voice actor behind Miles Morales, hypes the upcoming animated sequel movie Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (Part One).
Shameik Moore, the voice actor behind Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse‘s Miles Morales, hypes the upcoming sequel to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. The latter film from Sony Pictures Animation released in 2018 to tremendous acclaim from critics and an enthusiastic response from audiences, going on to win the Oscar for Best Animated Feature. Its eagerly anticipated sequel has been split into two parts, and Across the Spider-Verse (Part One) is currently scheduled for theatrical release on October 7, 2022.
In a premise that the studio has since shifted over to live-action with great success, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse initially centered on a universe in which Afro-Latino teenager Miles is destined to take on the mantle of Spider-Man after Peter Parker dies. However, a villain’s experiments with a collider ultimately put Miles in contact with several other Spider-people from different universes, including Peter B. Parker, Gwen Stacy, and Spider-Ham, forcing them all to work together to restore order to the multiverse. Noting the buzz around it, the studio greenlit a sequel a month before the movie’s premiere date, and the first Across the Spider-Verse teaser and title-reveal dropped in December of last year.
Now, series star Moore wants Spider-Man fans to start getting excited for the upcoming movie. Taking to Twitter, the voice actor shares a short but enthusiastic reaction to Across the Spider-Verse, suggesting he has at least seen a rough cut of the film and very much approves. Though some replies doubt that Moore has seen it yet, animation began back in June 2020 and the original release date of April 2022 was only pushed due to the pandemic, so it’s very realistic for there to be tangible material to work with by now.

Across The Spiderverse is INSANE 🙌🏾

Part of some fans’ skepticism might just come from the fact that very little Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse story details have been released so far. The first-look trailer sees Gwen Stacy reappear to take Miles on a multiversal adventure, and the synopsis promises to expand the team of Spider-people, incorporating Oscar Isaac’s end-credits scene character Spider-Man 2099 and casting Issa Rae as Jessica Drew, a.k.a. Spider-Woman. Across the Spider-Verse will also take viewers to new universes, each of which is animated with a different art-style.
While getting the star’s approval is perhaps expected, the timing of Moore’s praise should pique Spider-Verse fans’ interest, as it could indicate new Across the Spider-Verse (Part One) footage is on its way soon. The response itself still counts for something, though, as the expectations for this sequel are very high, given how Into the Spider-Verse was heralded as a leap forward for both superhero movies and CG-animation. Hopefully, prospective viewers will have the chance to share Moore’s enthusiasm for what the Across the Spider-Verse team have produced sooner rather than later.
