All the Easter eggs in the new Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse trailer

Easily one of the most anticipated movies of the year, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse has plenty to live up to when it finally hits theaters in June. Now that a second trailer from the movie has dropped, fans are eagerly parsing every moment of it to find all the Easter eggs that might hint at where this sequel is headed.

The new trailer doesn’t offer a ton of details about the plot, but here’s a breakdown of exactly what it does give us and how it may tie into what we can expect from the movie as a whole.


A wide array of new spider-people

If the first Spider-Verse movie didn’t give you enough of a sense of the wide array of all the spider-people out there, Across the Spider-Verse may be just what you need. In the trailer, we get brief looks at Spider-Woman, a.k.a. Jessica Drew, as she shoots webbing out all of her fingertips and is seen riding a motorcycle and sporting a baby bump.

We also get glimpses at both Spider-India and Spider-Punk, who both have special powers very much related to their names (Spider-Punk even wears a guitar).

See Spot run

Before we enter the Spider-Verse, we also get a brief glimpse at Spot, the villain that Miles is dealing with in Brooklyn. Spot appears to have teleportation powers, and we see him causing general mayhem all over the city.

It’s unclear how big Spot’s role might be in the film, or whether he’ll disappear after what seems to be the opening act.

Meet Spider-Man 2099

The trailer also gives us an expanded glimpse at Spider-Man 2099, a.k.a. Miguel O’Hara, who seems to be leading some sort of unification of all the different Spider-Men from across the multiverse. Gwen Stacy and Peter B. Parker also show up, and we learn that Peter is now married to Mary Jane and we even get to see their baby, May Day Parker.

We get the meme

Spider-Men Pointing Spiderverse

On top of everything else this trailer gives us, we also get a better sense of how O’Hara will interact with Miles. Although he will initially call on Miles for support, O’Hara will eventually turn on him and send all of the other Spider-Men from across the multiverse after him.

That leads to an inspired moment when all of the various Spider-Men point at one another in the lobby where they’ve all been gathered, recreating the famous Spider-Man pointing meme that we all know so well.

A new piece of tech

Another thing the trailer reveals is that O’Hara seems to have developed a new piece of tech that allows all of the Spider-Men to co-exist without glitching the way they did in the first movie. All the Spider-people are seen wearing them, and they seem to be useful communication tools as well.

Miles faces a choice

The plot of the movie is still unclear, but it seems like Miles will be forced to choose between saving the entire multiverse or a single person that he loves. That choice sets him against O’Hara, and perhaps the rest of the Spider-people as well. Miles is determined to forge his own path, but we’ll have to wait until June 2 to see exactly where that path takes him.

You need to watch these 5 movies in June 2023
Miles Morales soars through the air in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse.

This May, Hollywood successfully launched the summer blockbuster season with the release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 and Fast X, with The Little Mermaid just around the corner. For the most part, audiences have returned to the multiplex to watch the latest phase of the MCU unfold or what's next for Dom and his extended family in the never-ending The Fast Saga.

Yet as impressive as May was, June's film slate promises to be bigger, better, and, in some cases, louder. There are a lot of movies coming out next month, with a new Stephen King adaptation and another Transformers sequel waiting in the wings, but the below five films are the ones that stick out as not only noteworthy but, we hope, can satisfy the need for a good summertime movie.

The summer movie season always has lots of great flicks to offer, and the summer of 2023 is no exception. From massive franchise blockbusters to the return of studio comedies, cinephiles around the world should be excited about this summer's offerings.

Now, the summer schedule is looking to keep it rolling.

To celebrate the coming summer movie season, let's take a look at our top 10 most anticipated movies of the season. With only 10 spots available, it's inevitable that some very exciting movies will be left off the list.

Where to watch all the Spider-Man movies
Three Spider-Men come in for a landing in Spider-Man: No Way Home.

Superheroes may be common in movie theaters, but Spider-Man is one of the few who stands head and shoulders above the rest. Marvel's iconic hero helped pave the way for the onslaught of superhero flicks in the modern era, and he has been the company's flagship character for over six decades. Stan Lee and artist Steve Ditko captured lightning in a bottle with Peter Parker's alter ego, and the creators who came after them have only added to their legacy with new tales and adventures. Spidey's stories were almost too grand for live-action until director Sam Raimi cracked the code in 2002 with Spider-Man. Since then, Spidey has been a box office superstar with some of the highest-grossing movies in the genre.

Unfortunately, if you want to stream the Spider-Man flicks online, it isn't easy. Unlike its rival studios, Sony Pictures has no streaming service to call its own. And although several Spider-Man films are now on Disney+, the others remain locked down with other channels or streamers. But that doesn't mean that you don't have the option to find them. To simplify things, we've put together this guide that will tell you where you can watch all of the Spider-Man movies.
