New ‘Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse’ Images Sneak Peek Mumbattan, The Vulture

In case you weren’t already sufficiently excited about Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, two new images debuted by Empire magazine these weekend are sure to kick your anticipation meter up a notch.

The images offer a colorful look at the “Mumbattan” universe, home to Pavitr Prabhakar/Spider-Man India (voiced by Deadpool‘s Karan Soni) and an intense tussle between Spider-Man 2099, a.k.a. Miguel O’Hara (Oscar Isaac) and the villainous Vulture (Lonely Island’s Jorma Taccone), who sports an inventive new look for his mechanical flight suit.

The Marvel movie sequel from Sony Pictures Animation arrives in U.S. theaters on June 2.

Earlier this month, the movie’s official Twitter account dropped a fresh image of Spider-Man 2099 in action. This and the new Empire exclusives join the tantalizing first batch of visual development examples and character designs shared in the trailer drop “Afterparty” video, featuring Hailee Steinfeld (voice of Gwen Stacy) and co-writers/producers Phil Lord and Chris Miller.

The movie’s action-packed trailer and some buzzworthy images debuted in December.

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is helmed by Kemp Powers (Soul), first-time director Justin K. Thompson and Joaquim Dos Santos. The film reunites Miles Morales (Shameik Moore) with Gwen Stacy (Hailee Steinfeld) before sending Brooklyn’s full-time, friendly neighborhood Spider-Man catapulting 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.

The voice cast also features Jake Johnson as Peter B. Parker/Spider-Man, Issa Rae as Jessica Drew/Spider-Woman, Daniel Kaluuya as Hobie Brown/Spider Punk, Brian Tyree Henry as Jefferson Davis (Miles’s father), Luna Lauren Vélez as Rio Morales (Miles’s mother), Rachel Dratch as a school counselor, Jason Schwartzman as The Spot, Jorma Taccone as The Vulture, Shea Whigham as police captain George Stacy (Gwen’s father) and Greta Lee as Spider-Man 2099’s AI assistant, Lyla.
