Phil Lord and Chris Miller say each Spider-Man’s dimension in Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse (Part One) will have a distinct art style. Before Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse premiered in 2018, Sony Pictures Animation was already developing its sequel. The studio already knew they had a hit on their hands, and they were right. Into The Spider-Verse was hugely successful and went on to win Best Animated Feature at the Academy Awards along with a well-earned handful of other awards. The film showed a new way of making a comic book movie.
Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse was officially announced in 2019, but in December 2021, Lord and Miller announced that the sequel would be split into two parts, with Across The Spider-Verse (Part One) set to premiere
