Let’s get back to talking about Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse , and not just for Doc Manhattan’s fresh fresh review .

The film, full of characters, includes a cameo we didn’t know anything about: that of Jack Quaid , the Wee Hughie of The Boys . He revealed it himself with a tweet.

I’ve seen Spider-Verse . I loved Spider-Verse . I’m *technically* IN Spider-Verse (for like a second). I cannot spend enough praise on this movie. Go see it, it’s amazing. Congratulations to the extraordinarily talented team behind it.


Well, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse begins with a long prologue dedicated to Gwen Stacy / Spider-Woman ( Hailee Steinfeld ). In her universe, she was the one who got the spider bite, not Peter Parker . The latter is her best friend, and is often bullied at school. To take his revenge – and to become as strong as his beloved Gwen , whose secret identity he knows – Peter takes a compound that turns him into a Lizard , and attacks his captors during the school dance. A confrontation with Spider-Woman ensues , at the end of which Peterhe remains crushed under the debris of the hall, and dies.

Jack Quaid plays just this version of Peter , but the scenes in which he speaks are very few. Be that as it may, he is an important character in Gwen ‘s story , and the production was right to entrust him to an experienced actor.

Here is the official synopsis:

Miles Morales returns in the next chapter in the Academy Award-winning Spider-Verse saga, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse . After reuniting with Gwen Stacy, the friendly Brooklyn neighborhood Spider-Man is catapulted into the Multiverse, where he meets a team of “Spider-Heroes” charged with protecting its existence. But when the heroes clash over how to deal with a new threat, Miles finds himself up against the other “Spiders” and will have to redefine what it means to be a hero in order to save the people he loves most.

I remind you that the film has just been released in Italian cinemas.
