Spectacular Spider-Man Boss Tempers Fans’ Across the Spider-Verse Expectations

Greg Weisman, the showrunner of the popular Spectacular Spider-Man series, has doubts about the character's inclusion in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse.

Following the reveal that the so-called "SpecSpidey" was present on the Across the Spider-Verse's poster, Weisman took to Twitter to temper fans' expectations. "Confirmation that SpecSpidey is in the poster is not the same as confirmation that he’s in the movie," Weisman wrote. "Let alone how he might be handled in said movie. The acclaimed writer went on to say that he hasn't been involved in any aspect of the highly-anticipated sequel, elaborating that he didn't even know the Spectacular Spider-Man would appear in the poster.


When prompted by another user noting that Weisman may not be too enthusiastic about the inclusion if he wasn't receiving any royalties, the showrunner responded accordingly. "I’m not owed royalties. Acknowledgment might be nice," he wrote. How Across the Spider-Verse will handle Spectacular Spider-Man remains unknown; at the time of writing, it's also a mystery whether original voice actor Josh Keaton will reprise his role.

It's Raining Spider-Mans

"SpecSpidey" isn't the only masked face fans will recognize on the aforementioned poster. Eagled-eyed Marvel enthusiasts managed to pick out Spinnet, Julia Carpenter, Scarlet Spider, Spider-Punk, Insomniac's Spider-Man and even the Bombastic Bag-Man. While several of these are confirmed to appear in the film, it's unknown whether every pictured Spider-Man will feature in a prominent way. One that will play a significant role in Across the Spider-Verse is Spider-Man 2099, who is being framed as one of the brutal versions of the hero that directly opposes Miles.

Across the Spider-Verse serves as the sequel to the enormously popular Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and will continue the story of Miles Morales. A little bit older and wiser, the fan-favorite superhero is forced into a multiverse-spanning adventure when an interdimensional villain known as The Spot begins to cause untold problems with reality. While Miles is surrounded by other heroic Spider-People, he quickly discovers that they don't all agree on how to tackle the problem, putting him up against dozens of his counterparts.

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse swings into theaters on June 2, 2023.
