He’s neither cow, nor dalmatian… he’s ‘The Spot,’ and he’s the new villain Miles Morales must face… along with his mom’s wrath for getting just a B in Spanish… and a sea of competing Spideys, in the snazzy, jazzy, and tantalizingly stylized trailer for the highly anticipated sequel, hitting theaters June 2.
He’s back galivanting across the multiverse with Gwen Stacy after skipping out on an important school meeting with his parents… and a dreaded B in Spanish reveal. Brooklyn’s full-time, friendly neighborhood Spider-Man soon finds himself catapulted across the Multiverse to encounter a team of Spideys protecting its very existence.
But who could imagine… heroes clash, and there’s a new threat – neither cow nor Dalmatian, but… The Spot! Plus other Spider-folks.
Miles must figure out what being a hero really means, so he can save the people he loves the most.
