Next week, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse will finally arrive in theaters. Following the first film's smashing success and an Oscar win, there's a lot of anticipation for the sequel and hope that it will live up to the quality or perhaps even surpass it.
Recently, critics, online pundits, and journalists were able to watch the film in advance. The social media embargo was finally lifted last night and they're allowed to share their first reactions.
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is Getting a Lot of Early Praise
The responses to the film so far have been overwhelmingly positive with praise towards its visuals, groundbreaking animation, emotional storytelling, stakes, new characters, and its nod to the Spider-Man lore.
Some of them even called it better than the first film while there are also some who declared it the best Spider-Man film of all time or called it a "masterpiece."

A Great Start for Across the Spider-Verse's Buzz
There is no doubt that the film's buzz is now off to a great start since this could hype up more people to check it out when it releases in theaters next week and excite fans as well who are already looking forward to seeing it.
Obviously, you might have a different opinion when you check out the film yourself, but nevertheless, this is a promising sign about its quality and it is a sign that it will win a lot of audiences.
Considering the reception and accolades that the first film received, it is certainly great to see that the sequel will seemingly live up to expectations and there is a huge possibility that it will receive more awards and become a huge box office success again.
The film's synopsis reads: "After reuniting with Gwen Stacy, Brooklyn’s full-time, friendly neighborhood Spider-Man is catapulted across the Multiverse, where he encounters the Spider Society, a team of Spider-People charged with protecting the Multiverse’s very existence."
"But when the heroes clash on how to handle a new threat, Miles finds himself pitted against the other Spiders and must set out on his own to save those he loves most. Anyone can wear the mask – it’s how you wear it that makes you a hero."
The cast includes Shameik Moore, Hailee Steinfeld, Brian Tyree Henry, Luna Lauren Velez, Jake Johnson, Jason Schwartzman, Issa Rae, Karan Soni, Daniel Kaluuya, and Oscar Isaac.
