Chris Miller and Phil Lord, Producers of Sony’s Oscar-Winning Film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Versetease fans about a potential pairing between Miles and Gwen, who share romantic chemistry. According to Phil Lord in a recent interview, as the bigger story unfolds across the multiverse, the film will focus on the “potential love tension” between Gwen and Miles.
The highly anticipated sequel to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, titled Across the Spider-Verse, will hit theaters on June 2, 2023, after numerous setbacks and premiere date adjustments. The interaction between Miles and Gwen will get a lot of attention in Spider-Verse 2 amid the addition of new multiversal heroes.
Miles and Gwen had decided to become friends when fans last saw them in Into the Spider-Verse, finding ways to communicate despite their disparate dimensional locations. That friendship continues in the sequel’s trailer, which was unveiled in December 2021, when the film was set to hit theaters soon after.
Relationship between Gwen and Miles in “Across The Spider-Verse”
Gwen and Miles’ relationship will be an important subplot in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, according to Phil Lord.
According to Lord, there is a conflict between the two characters’ desires to maintain and not damage their relationship and the possibility of a romance between her and Miles. “Especially when they’re so young, it’s a pretty interesting place for two characters.”
The romantic relationship between Miles Morales and Gwen Stacy existed in the comics; it was something the creators of Into the Spider-Verse were well aware of, as they sowed the seeds of a possible Miles/Gwen romance early on.
Across the Spider-Verse seems to explore this in a way that goes far beyond Peter Parker’s teenage distress. It’s also the larger story of the Spider-Man character; Whichever incarnation they arrive in, Spider-Man is repeatedly torn between heartfelt desires and heroism. We can only hope that the storyline involving Miles and Gwen will serve to both maintain and modernize the important Spider-Man lore.
The producers said Gwen’s universe was going to be important
The majority of the specifics of Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse are currently being carefully kept under wraps.
In order to help defeat the villain The Spot, whose body is covered in portals to other dimensions, Miles will be drawn into a new multiversal adventure. with even more Spider-Men, including Spider-Man 2099 (Oscar Isaac). The movie’s trailer doesn’t reveal much more as it only shows a small part of a storyline in which Stacy visits Miles’ universe to enlist him on a new quest.
However, this sequence, which obviously dates from the beginning of the novel, confirms what Lord and Miller asserted. It’s plausible that The Spot either originated from Spider-Gwen’s universe or made it the gateway to her operations if the film starts from her point of view, which would make it the central universe in the same way as Miles Morales’ universe was for combat. against Kingpin in Into the Spider-Verse. She may be the only being in her reality who can deduce exactly what’s going on and put together the perfect team to stop it, which is why she returns to Miles’ universe first.
