Spider-Man has always been one of Marvel’s most popular characters. And luckily for fans, new web slinger stories are happening in two different blockbuster franchises. Fans can’t wait to see Spider-Man: Through the Spider-Versese released in theaters, as the first animated film Into the Spider-Verse was an Oscar-winning hit. And it looks like some products for the sequel have revealed a new variant for the crawler.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse focused on Miles Morales as he encountered various alternate versions of Spider-Man. While that movie featured a handful of Spideys, the upcoming sequel Through the Spider-Verse should bring more into the fold as well as the villainous Spot. Now, one of those newcomers may have been revealed through merchandise: Spider-Punk. Some images of this merch have made their way onto Twittercheck it out below:

Looks like Spider-Punk is going to join the fray in Spider-Man: Through the Spider-Verse. And he’s apparently going to play a big enough role that fans can buy his signature mask and guitar when the movie’s merchandise hits stores. What other variations could be considered in this new animated story? It really does feel like the sky is the limit, with the the filmmakers previously joked that the film had 240 characters.
This merchandise related leak is sure to increase anticipation for Spider-Man: Through the Spider-Verse, as it confirms that we’ll be getting even more forms of the titular superhero in the upcoming blockbuster. And since studio and audience are both on board for the multiversal action, it’s unclear who else might appear in this mystery sequel. The first 15 minutes of the film have already been revealed at CinemaConwhich also helps to boost the enthusiasm of the fans
In the comics, Spider-Punk is a relatively new hero who was introduced in 2015. His real name is Hobart Brown, yet another version of the web slinger who isn’t Peter Parker, Miles Morales, or Gwen Stacey. His main enemy is President Norman Osbourne and his army of VENOM troops. His guitar is Spider-Punk’s signature weapon, and it looks like it’s going to ring true in Spider-Man: Through the Spider-Verse.
As previously mentioned, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse was a huge hit when it arrived in theaters in 2018. A box office and critical success, the film ultimately won Best Animated Feature at the Academy Awards (although the acceptance speech was cut short). The film featured an all-star cast: Shameik Moore, Jake Johnson, Nicolas Cage, Lily Tomlin, Hailee Steinfeld, Mahershala Ali and many more. There was also a notable cameo by Oscar Isaac at the end of the film, whose role should be expanded in a future project. In response to the success of the first film, two sequels and a spin-off were quickly greenlit by Sony, and it looks like these filmmakers will craft an even bigger story with Through the Spider-Verse.
Spider-Man: Through the Spider-Verse hits theaters on June 2. In the meantime, check out the 2022 movie release dates to plan your next cinematic experience.
