Spider-Man: Throughout the Spider-Verse is sort of right here. It’s the second installment within the Miles Morales (Shameik Moore) story that began just a few years in the past. Whereas Spider-Verse 2 positively isn’t the ultimate chapter, we’re an journey that’s 140 minutes lengthy. That’s loads of time for Spider-Man surprises from throughout the multiverse, just like the MCU Easter egg that Sony dropped throughout one of many trailers.
We now have a brand new Spider-Verse 2 leak that makes me fear concerning the MCU multiverse once more. I can’t clarify with out spoiling some Throughout the Spider-Verse surprises. Keep away from what follows if you happen to don’t wish to know what occurs in Sony’s subsequent Spider-Man journey.
The Spider-Verse 2 multiverse has an issue
Sony dropped a brand new Spider-Verse 2 trailer just a few weeks in the past and included in it a reference to Tom Holland’s Peter Parker. However given all the things Sony confirmed within the Throughout the Spider-Verse trailer, I noticed an instantaneous drawback.
I began worrying that Sony would spoil the MCU multiverse with its multiverse take. Sony then went on the file to say that the multiverses aren’t related, assuaging my issues. However I wasn’t thrilled to listen to Spider-Verse 2 isn’t a part of the large MCU multiverse.
It’s not that Sony referred to Marvel’s MCU universe as Earth-199999. It’s that Spider-Verse 2 proposes a multiverse the place a society of multiversal Spider-Males can transfer freely between timelines. And this can be a large drawback for the MCU’s multiverse.
Having a Spider-Man pressure like that would immediately repair all the MCU’s issues. You’d don’t have any motive to fret about Kang’s imminent assault on the multiverse with so many Spider-Man variants able to intervene.
Nevertheless, Sony mounted all that with a latest comment, saying the Spider-Verse 2 is a unique multiverse. Right here’s what co-director Kemp Powers needed to say concerning the confusion:
The world of Miles Morales and Spider-Verse, it’s not tied into the Marvel Cinematic Universe or something like that. However this can be a [Christopher Lord and Phil Miller] movie. We wish to have a little bit little bit of enjoyable, we wish to be a little bit bit meta and to acknowledge the world by which we’re creating these tales. That’s the easiest way to clarify it.
This isn’t one thing the place we did something along with Marvel. Miles’s universe, belief me, there’s a lot to work with. That gag is considered one of many, and my favourite gag is one that folks don’t find out about but. However I feel after they see it, they’re going to be fairly shocked. It’s a severe movie, however it’s additionally a movie with a number of enjoyable in it.
Is Tom Hardy’s Venom within the Spider-Verse 2?
Keep in mind the early screenings of Venom 2? They’d a transparent level, to get the phrase out that Tom Hardy’s Venom will discover himself on Earth-616, the MCU’s main universe. Similar to that, Sony related its Sony’s Spider-Man Universe (SSU) to the MCU. Then, No Approach Dwelling arrived, bringing Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield to the MCU.
Similar to that, Sony ensured the large Marvel multiverse incorporates all of its Spider-Man adventures. That’s why I absolutely anticipated Spider-Verse 2 to be part of the identical bigger SSU. And meaning it’d be a part of the MCU.
Based on what Kemp stated, that’s not the case. However then, how can the Venom actuality hook up with the Spider-Verse 2 multiverse?
That’s the most recent Spider-Verse 2 spoiler, which comes courtesy of Sony Vietnam, through The Direct.
Tom Hardy’s identify doesn’t want a translation, however right here’s what that message reads:
Tom Hardy’s Universe seems in Spider-Verse 2.
Additionally, right here’s what Sony stated within the standing replace:
After the LEGO universe, the Venom live-action universe may even function within the Spider-Verse. And there can be extra thrilling issues to be revealed!
Followers of Venom have acknowledged Peggy Lu’s Mrs. Chen and her comfort retailer from the live-action motion pictures.
These Easter eggs are actually thrilling if you happen to’ve seen all of the SSU and MCU motion pictures. However they don’t work if you’d like the Spider-Verse 2 multiverse to be separate from the MCU.
I’m nonetheless excited to see Spider-Verse 2 and hope the story can be a part of the bigger MCU multiverse. However provided that Sony can ship a wise clarification for all the things.
