Thedropped out this weekend, reuniting with for the first time since 2018 brought us on a . You might be wondering which character Miles is fighting in the futuristic city, but we already caught a glimpse of him in the post-credits scene from the previous film.
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (Part 1) is slated to hit theaters in October 2022. Part 2 will be released in 2023, writer-producers Phil Lord and Chris Miller told EW on Saturday.
Time to party like it’s 2099 and rock a few at three SPOILERS.
A journey to the future … and the past
After Miles, Gwen, and their Spider-People comrades stop the plot endangering the town of Kingpin to travel to parallel universes and everyone returns home, we meet another pair of Spider-Men, one of the distant future and one from over 50 years ago, before they find themselves in an intense (and meme-worthy) literal scoring fight.
The first of these is Miguel O’Hara, better known as Spider-Man 2099 (Oscar Isaac), who watches the action with his holographic assistant Lyla (Greta Lee) and sees that each has returned to their own. reality. With the multiverse saved, Miguel decides to embark on his own reality jump adventure.
“Let’s start with the beginning.”
Miguel travels to Earth-67, the reality of the 1967 Spider-Man animated series. It’s the one with the glorious theme song and the first animated Spidey. So “the beginning” here.
He meets the Spider-Man of that universe, and the pair end up arguing over who pointed first – a moment based on the famous pointing meme that’s been around since 2011. We even get an appearance from Earth’s J. Jonah Jameson. -67.
What this means
Spider-Man 2099 was created by Peter David and Rick Leonardi and made his debut in Spider-Man 2099 # 1 in 1992. Miguel is a gifted geneticist living in New York City (renamed Nueva York) in 2099, a time when a is run by evil mega-corporations like Alchemax, a company that plays a big role in Spider-Verse.
While attempting to replicate the abilities of the original Spidey Peter Parker for Alchemax, Miguel is coerced by his unethical boss, Tyler Stone, into taking an addictive drug. In an effort to shake off addiction, Miguel accidentally pairs his DNA with that of a spider and acquires a similar skill set as the original Spider-Man.
He is also the first Latino character to become Spider-Man. Her costume is available in, and he was a playable character in 2010 Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions and its 2011 sequel, Edge of Time.
In the post-credits scene, Miguel goes to Double Identity, a Season 1 episode of the 1967 animated series. It focuses on an actor posing as others to get rid of the police as he commits crimes. The pointing scene dates from a time when he claims to be Spider-Man and inspired one of the many memes based on the series.
It’s unclear why Miguel is traveling through the multiverse, but the Across the Spider-Verse trailer suggests Miles will end up in 2099 at some point.
Additionally, the spider that gave Miles Morales his powers suffered from the same time warp as Peter and the other heroes who had been drawn from other realities. Since the spider had an Alchemax logo, could it be from Miguel’s reality? The company also exists in Miles’ universe, so it may have been branded after arriving there as well.
