Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is poised to be a grand Multiversal adventure featuring many variants of the titular web-slinger. The highly-anticipated sequel to Into the Spider-Verse is confirmed to bring back Miles Morales, Spider-Gwen, and Peter B. Parker while also introducing new characters like Oscar Isaac’s Spider-Man 2099.
While the exact plot details are still being kept under wraps, it has been confirmed that the Spider-Variants will band together to go up against a scary new villain called The Spot. Now, a new character has been confirmed to be featured in the upcoming animated sequel based on an official image of the film’s merchandise.
Another Spider-Man Joins the Multiverse Epic
Twitter user @preterniadotcom uncovered evidence that a new Spider-Man variant will join the adventure of Miles Morales and his allies in 2023’s Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse. Based on the image of official new merchandise of the movie, Cyborg Spider-Woman is set to appear in the Marvel sequel:
This latest merchandise confirmed that Cyborg Spider-Woman will join team Spider-Man alongside Spider-Punk, Miles Morales, Spider-Gwen, Peter B. Parker, and Spider-Man 2099 in the movie.
Given that Cyborg Spider-Woman has no significant role in Marvel Comics, it’s possible that Across the Spider-Verse will include the character in a major way in the film’s storyline.
In the original Spider-Verse comic, Cyborg Spider-Man had a major role in defeating Karn, a member of the Inheritors who is obsessed with killing those with spider-powers across the Multiverse. However, the character died when Daemos, a totem hunter, destroyed him upon the arrival of the Inheritors on his Earth.
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is set to premiere in theaters on June 2, 2023.
