We’re still around six months away from the release of Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse, however, Sony has been releasing plenty of updates whilst we wait. The film’s original release date was all the way back in April of 2022, but due to the natural obstacles faced with that time period, it was pushed back to June of 2023.
The latest update from the sequel comes in the form of nine official Spider-Emblems from various Spider-People variants who will star alongside Miles Morales. Despite seeing some of the below logos being revealed in promotions such as trailers and posters, these newly released images give a much better look than what we’ve seen prior.
Miles Morales’ Spider-Verse Logo (Spider-Man)
Miles Morales’ logo is by far the most commonly known in the franchise – however, this new logo is slightly different to what we got to see in Into The Spider-Verse. The edging is much straighter and sharper than the first instalment’s design, whereas the previous logo was more squiggly – maybe hinting at Miles’ maturity between the two films.
Gwen Stacy’s Logo (Spider-Gwen/Ghost-Spider)
Secondly, we have Gwen Stacy’s Spider logo, which is harder to spot on her spidey suit compared to the majority of the other variants from the series. Gwen’s logo is seen wrapped around her whole suit instead of just being a proportionate-sized emblem on the front or back.
Miguel O’Hara’s Logo (Spider-Man 2099)
Miguel O’Hara’s Spider-Man 2099 logo comes in with a strong comic vibe on this one, being almost – if not – identical to the original design. Promotion for the sequel has set up for Spider-Man 2099 to be one of the main antagonists of the film, however, the true villain for Across The Spider-Verse has been said to be ‘The Spot’, but more on that later.
Jessica Drew Spider-Verse Logo (Spider-Woman)
Next up is Jessica Drew, also known as the Spider-Woman, who has been a Marvel Comics alumni for over 40 years now – officially debuting in the 1970s. Jessica Drew’s involvement in this new instalment has been teased to be connected to whatever Spider-Man 2099 is up to – which should make for quite the team-up!
Daniel Kaluuya’s Spider-Punk Logo
Daniel Kaluuya from films such as Black Panther and Nope was officially announced to be voicing one of the variants, with the reveal that his variant will be none other than Marvel Comics’ Spider-Punk. We have gotten to see little teases of his character so far but nothing solid as of yet – which could mean we will have to wait to see a better look at him.
Spider-Man India’s Logo
Paviitr Prabhakar is also another one who we have only gotten to see briefly via promotional art from the sequel, Spider-Man India is now one of the most anticipated to see on screen. His first appearance in the comics was only back in 2004, so we’re only one year away from his 20th anniversary – which this film will surely make more known.
Scarlet Spider’s Logo
MINOR COMIC SPOILERS BELOW
The Scarlet Spider is potentially going to be one of the most interesting variants out of the bunch, not that every variant won’t be as interesting as the other – it’s just that Scarlet Spider’s storyline from the comics is quite crazy. In the comics, Ben Reilly (Scarlet Spider) is a living clone of Peter Parker – which will hopefully be adapted into the film – but which Peter Parker could he end up being a clone of?
Diving into the virtual side of things, Spider-Byte is from a world where people spend the majority of their time playing as virtual avatars in cyberspace. Spider-Byte, or Margo as she is otherwise known, decided to become a crime fighter and make it her mission to help people against cyber criminals.
Cyborg Spider-Woman’s Logo
Not much has been revealed about the newly created character known as Cyborg Spider-Woman, but fans are in for a treat if the appearance of the toys is anything to go by. Cyborg Spider-Woman is by far one of the youngest creations in the Spider-Verse realm, being introduced during the Edge Of Spider-Verse comics – it’s safe to say we’re intrigued.
So Why Release These Spider-Verse Logos?
Sony could be telling us that these nine characters will be the main Spider-Man variant characters in the Spider-Verse unless they plan on releasing more in the upcoming months. We’ll just have to wait and see what Sony plan on releasing from now to the official release of the film – follow us on Twitter here so you don’t miss our updates.
Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse comes to cinemas on the 2nd of June, 2023.
