Sony’s Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse sequel is on the way!
The first Into The Spider-Verse proved a smash hit in 2018, and now the sequel is officially set to hit theatres in April, 2022.
What can we expect from the upcoming film? If it builds on the premise of the first, we’ll probably see a lot more Spider-people.
Here are the alternate Spider-people we’d like to see in the Into The Spider-Verse sequel.
Cindy Moon, aka Silk, gained her own powers from the same radioactive spider that bit Peter Parker. Cindy has similar powers to Peter, but her spider-sense is stronger, and she can produce webbing organically from the tips of her fingers.
Silk was originally supposed to appear in the first film, until she was replaced by Peni Parker. The character is already slated to appear in a female-led Spider-Verse spin off, but it would be nice to see her in the sequel too.
2. Spider-Man 2099
A geneticist from the distant future, Miguel O’Hara gained his powers in an experiment gone wrong, in which fifty percent of his DNA was overwritten with a spider’s.
O’Hara has some abilities in common with the original Spidey, albeit with a few key differences. He has enhanced hearing and vision in place of spider-senses, and can inflict a venomous bite on enemies.
Spider-Man 2099 appears in a cameo in Into The Spider-Verse‘s post-credits scene, voiced by Oscar Isaac. It’s not a huge leap to think we’ll see him in the sequel.
Billy Braddock is an alternate Spider-Man from Earth-833. He works with the Captain Britain corps under the mantle of Spider-UK.
Spider-UK plays a major role in the comics Spider-Verse storyline, setting out on an inter-dimensional journey to save his fellow ‘Spiders’ from the evil Inheritors.
Many fans would love to see the character come to life on the big screen.
4. Spider-Woman, Jessica Drew
Originally created just so Marvel Comics could trademark the ‘Spider-Woman’ name, Jessica Drew proved popular enough to earn her own solo comic. Her solo title has run on-and-off in the years since her introduction. The character has also been a member of the Avengers.
Like Silk, Spider-Woman is set to appear in a Spider-Verse spin off. However, there’s no reason why she can’t also appear in the sequel.
5. MCU Spider-Man
The future of Tom Holland’s take on Peter Parker was recently thrown into question, with Disney and Sony struggling to reach a deal. Thankfully for fans, an agreement was eventually reached, with MCU Spidey sticking around for two more films.
Rumour has it that one of the conditions of the new deal allows Sony greater freedom to use Holland’s Spider-Man in their own projects. While this most likely opens him up to appear alongside Tom Hardy’s Venom, some fans have expressed hope that Spider-Holland could appear in animated form in the Into The Spider-Verse sequel.
We’ll have to wait until the film is released in 2022 to find out. Whatever happens, it’s sure to be a fun, spider-filled ride.
