11 Versions of Spider-Man Unite in Multiverse Fan Art
A piece of Spider-Man fan art brought together 11 different Spider-People from film, animation, and video games in one loving compilation.
A piece of Spider Man fan art has broken down dimensional barriers to unite 11 different versions of the wall-crawler across the Spider-Verse. Superhero media has been incredibly dominant in pop culture over the past 20 years, with the Marvel Cinematic Universe in particular delivering huge box office financials and becoming arguably Walt Disney’s strongest arm. Corporation. With this steady level of popularity, many commentators wondered when (or if) the so-called “ssuperhero bubblewill erupt and audience tastes will shift to something different. It seems that, in an effort to keep it fresh and exciting, Marvel and DC are focusing on the concept of the multiverse for their cinematic production in films such as Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and the flash.
One character that seems to have been at the forefront of this multiverse trend is one of Marvel’s most popular characters, Spider-Man. Spidey’s publishing history has seen the web-slinger drastically reimagined several times in spin-off books, which inevitably led to a major crossover event in Dan Slott’s “Spider-Verse” storyline. It was only a matter of time before this concept was adopted by other media, first in the 2018 film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, which received immense critical acclaim and won the Oscar for Best Animated Feature. Fans were then treated to a live-action version in the recent Spider-Man: No Coming Home, which saw the three live-action incarnations of Spider-Man come together to battle villains from different universes.
Fan art produced by Instagram user @kidovna embraces the concept of the multiverse and brings together 11 different Spider-People from recent media. The Spideys of course include the three live-action Peter Parkers, starring Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield and Tom Holland. Peter (Yuri Lowenthal) and Miles Morales (Nadji Jeter) versions featured in Beloved Insomniac Games Spider Man games on Sony’s PlayStation consoles are also present. Finally, swelling the list, are the six Spider-People from the animation spider worms movie: Miles (Shameik Moore); Peter B. Parker (Jake Johnson); Spider-Gwen (Hailee Steinfeld); Spider-Man Noir (Nicolas Cage); Peni Parker (Kimiko Glenn); and Spider-Ham (John Mulaney).
The piece is a loving tribute to the many fan versions of Spider-Man that have been dealt with over the years and is a testament to the character’s adaptability. The central theme of Into the Spider-Verse was very well embodied in the quote “Everyone can wear the mask,which spoke of the universal value of great power accompanied by great responsibility. Stan Lee had even acknowledged that, although unintentional, having Spider-Man’s suit cover the whole body was “the best thing we’ve ever done,because it allowed any young fan to project themselves into a hero who was always troubled, both by superheroics and the complexities of normal life, but who always did the right thing.
While fans received a lot of multiversal Spider Man content already, the demand for more is always there. Two suites at Into the Spider-Verse have already been confirmed, promising to take Miles Morales Through the Spider-Verse, where he will inevitably encounter more Spider-Variants including Oscar Isaac’s Spider-Man 2099. Fans are also hoping to see a lot more Maguire and Garfield in their own projects, with a particular desire to see Garfield come into contact with Tom Hardy’s Venom. Whatever happens, it’s clear that the Spider-Verse will only expand from this point on.
