Web-slinging hero Miles Morales returns in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (2023), released five years after the Academy Award-winning smash hit Into the Spider-Verse. This time, Miles faces off against The Spot, an elusive supervillain capable of traversing parallel universes. Reuniting with Gwen Stacy, Miles catapults across time and space and encounters the Spider Society, a team dedicated to safeguarding the equilibrium of the multiverse. The film boasts a vibrant cast of Spider-People, paying homage to the character’s extensive history across decades, countries, and media forms, and reflexively critiques questions of narrative canon and the conventions of the superhero genre itself. With breathtaking animation that pushes the limits of the form, the film sets a remarkable new standard for animated films.

As part of the Carsey-Wolf Center’s Black Hollywood series, we are delighted to welcome director Kemp Powers, who will join moderator Mireille Miller-Young for a post-screening discussion of Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse.
