Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse has finally arrived in theaters, continuing the adventures of Miles Morales (Shameik Moore), Gwen Stacy (Hailee Steinfeld), and all our other favorite spider-people from Marvel Comics. Following the events of 2018’s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Miles steps out of his universe into a larger spider-web of the multiverse, where danger is around every corner. With this animated film smashing box-office records, we couldn’t wait to get together and talk about every juicy detail from the film and what’s to come next in the Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse Discussion.

In the latest episode of The Cosmic Circle, host Brian Kitson and fellow Cosmic Circus writer Alex Perez break down every exciting moment and what the crazy ending of Across the Spider-Verse means for the future of Sony’s Marvel films. This is definitely a podcast you don’t want to miss, as our resident Spider-Expert Alex Perez shares plenty of insight and quite a few bits of information, for fans of Spider-Man, as well as one juicy Scarlet Witch drop.
