Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse may have been delayed to 2023, but that hasn’t stopped the toy industry from previewing the film.
The film was supposed to be released in October of this year but was delayed to next year on June 2, 2023. This means that the toys which were supposed to be released right before the film – with its previous release date – have now started to appear in the wild. The latest toy for the film gives us a look at Miles Morales’ new suit in the film.
Miles Morales’ New Suit in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse
The previous entry to the franchise, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse was universally acclaimed and has since gathered massive popularity online. Many fans even call it the best Spider-Man film to date. This new toy was found by Twitter user @NitroSpidey and is titled “Miles Morales“.
This new suit features the same graffiti logo and black, white, and red color scheme, but also has some cool new additions and changes. The logo is now bigger and the spider’s legs extend further down the suit. While the shoulders are now prominently black with two thick red lines running through them, compared to the previous red. The legs now also feature red lining around the back and the gloves have been changed from plain red to black. The suit’s texture also looks to be rougher and gives it a more carbon fiber look. All these changes to the suit look quite slick and amplify the appearance of the suit.
What’s even more interesting is the “Spinning web” coming out of the suit. This looks like a new power or skill which Miles will have in the film where now he can shoot spinning webs. These webs also have a bluish tone to them which may mean that they may actually be made out of water. This would also explain the new texture of the suit, but it is entirely possible that these webs are indeed classic web fluid and this is just a new skill Miles has learned to perform with his webs.
What Do We Know About Spider-Man: Across The Universe So Far?
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, after previously being announced as Across the Spider-Verse Part One, will now just be Across the Spider-Verse, as Part two has been renamed to Beyond the Spider-Verse. However, the film should still act as a 2-parter with just with a more traditional ending to part one.
While the Into The Spider-Verse brought characters from across the multiverse into Miles’ universe, this film promises to take Miles across different universes. As seen from the trailer, we visit plenty of other universes including a futuristic 2099 universe, a South Asian-themed universe, and plenty more.
The Spot, voiced by Jason Schwartzman, has been confirmed to be the villain for the film. However, it still remains to be seen if he is the main villain or a side villain like Prowler was to the first film. Returning members include Shameik Moore as Miles, Hailee Steinfield returning as Spider-Gwen, Oscar Isaac returning as Spider-Man 2099 as seen in the trailer for Across the Spider-Verse and in the post-credit scene for Into the Spider-Verse, Brian Tyree Henry as Miles’s Dad and Jake Johnson as Peter B.Parker.
New cast members include Shea Whigham as Captain George Stacey, Jorma Taccone as The Vulture/Adrian Toomes, and Issa Rae as Jessica Drew/Spider-Woman. It is yet unconfirmed if the rest of the Spider-people from Into the Spider-Verse will be returning, but with the producers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller heavily teasing the immense scope of the film, it is likely that we will see more universes and Spider-People than ever before.
The creators also confirmed that as the characters hop through the universes the art style changes for each universe, so there is a chance that they could drop into a live-action universe like the MCU, or the universe of Andrew Garfield and/or Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man.
We’ll find out what surprises the film has in store for us and what these spinning webs truly are when Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse finally hits theaters on June 2, 2023. What do you think of Across the Spider-Verse? Let us know your thoughts and theories over on our social media!
