The latest trailer for the upcoming Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (Part One) has just been released, offering a look at the chaos Miles Morales (Shameik Moore) and Gwen Stacy (Hailee Steinfeld) encounter as they toss themselves into the multiverse.

During the trailer, the duo comes across several other spider-people, and that includes some new faces, like Spider-Woman (Issa Rae) and the Spider-Man from the Insomniac-developed PlayStation game.

We also get a look at an artfully drawn fight scene between Morales and Spider-Man 2099, along with a flashback to the brief Stan Lee cameo from Into the Spider-Verse. Unfortunately, we didn’t get a look at some of the other characters expected to appear in the film, such as The Spot, a villain made up of interdimensional portals, and Spider-Punk.

As noted by the film’s description, “Spider-Man is catapulted across the Multiverse, where he encounters a team of Spider-People charged with protecting its very existence. But when the heroes clash on how to handle a new threat, Miles finds himself pitted against the other Spiders and must redefine what it means to be a hero so he can save the people he loves most.”

While Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is set to debut on June 2nd, 2023, the follow-up to this film, Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse isn’t expected until 2024.

Update, 3:50PM ET: Updated to clarify that the Stan Lee cameo is a flashback and that the third film is called Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse.

Correction, 3:50PM ET: A previous version of the article incorrectly stated that Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is coming out next June, when it’s actually called Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse. We regret the error.
