In Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, fans demand the inclusion of a specific Spider-Verse character who was notably absent from the previous film. Sony Pictures will release the next chapter in Miles Morales’ saga in 2023 with Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse. Due to the overwhelming popularity of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, the animated series will go further into the multiverse concept in future installments. Miles’ latest escapade as the world’s web-slinger is the plot’s focus, but he also makes contact with familiar and unfamiliar allies along the way. Adding even more Spider-Men to the mix, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse raises the stakes for its sequel. Sony has postponed the release of the animated sequel so that more time may be spent perfecting the film.
Fans are still trying to guess who else might make an appearance in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, even after a new trailer showed off many different Spider-Man versions. There are dozens of potential new Variants, given the vastness of the Spider-Verse in the books. In a discussion post, Reddit users have expressed their desire to see Supaidaman, the Japanese version of Spider-Man from the 1970s live-action show. Despite producer Phil Lord’s previous hints to the contrary, fans still want Japanese Spider-Man to appear in Across the Spider-Verse.
Complete Cast of Spider-Man Confirmed for Multiverse
In addition to Miles, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse will include the return of some fan-favourite Variants and the introduction of some fresh faces. Spider-Gwen and Peter B. Parker, two of Miles’ new allies in the first movie when he was still exploring his abilities, return in this sequel. Spider-Man 2099, as Miguel O’Hara, made his initial appearance in the first film’s post-credits scene and will play a crucial role in the sequel. Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse introduces Jonathan Ohne, aka The Spot, to the big screen for the first time.
And with the introduction of a new villain come several Spider-Man iterations, several of which were glimpsed in the most recent trailer. Central characters in the sequel will be Jessica Drew and Hobart Brown, aka Spider-Woman and Spider-Punk. The latest footage also featured the Spider-Man from the Insomniac Games series. The Superior Spider-Man, the Werewolf Spider-Man, and the Spider-Monkey have all been confirmed to make cameo appearances. Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse will also feature the brief incarnation of Spider-Man Unlimited. Visual representations have verified the existence of Pavitr Prabhakar, the Indian Spider-Man.
It’s an understatement to say that the animation team behind Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse surpassed everyone’s high standards. Although most of the Variants who appear will probably only have brief cameos, this demonstrates how heavily they utilize the Spider-Verse lore. There’s already been talk of a female Spider-Verse spinoff, so it wouldn’t be surprising if further spinoffs were developed following the next movie. It would be exciting to see spinoffs for the new Variants to help grow the franchise, depending on how well each one is received. What happens after Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, intended to be as significant a production as Avengers: Endgame, remains to be seen.
