‘Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse’ Filmmakers On Making An “Innovative” And “Ambitious” Sequel And Daniel Kaluuya’s Influence – Contenders Film L.A.
18.11.2023 - 20:37
Writer-producer team Phil Lord and Chris Miller, alongside director Kemp Powers, joined Deadline’s Contenders Film L.A. event on Saturday to discuss world-building, groundbreaking animation and the fun risk they took in creating a character inspired by Daniel Kaluuya for Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse.
Following the events of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Miles Morales (Shameik Moore) reunites with Gwen Stacy (Hailee Steinfeld) to deal with a new threat to the multiverse, the Spot (Jason Schwartzman). When Gwen takes Miles to the Spider Society, a team of “Spider-People” from across the multiverse, he soon finds that not everyone is on the same page about what it means to be a hero.
The bombastic sequel features over six different animation styles and thousands of hand-drawn pixels to bring to life to over 280 variations of Spider-Man, 95 of which are unique and named characters.

Lord explained what it was like taking on the monumental task of expanding the world of the Spider-Verse and improving upon the first film, which garnered an Academy Award for its groundbreaking animation style. “When your brand is surprise and innovation, it means you have to start over because you can’t run it back. We all got together and said, ‘What’s something even more ambitious? How could we create looks and worlds that are completely surprising in animation and are groundbreaking as equally as the previous movie?’ But really, it was about how can we go deeper in the character’s relationships? How can we make this film a more complete emotional experience?”
