Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is nearly released in theaters on June 1st.
And now a new rumor has spread on the net, due to some Vietnamese promotional materials, which seem to have spoiled a tasty detail. Read only if you are not afraid of spoiling the surprise.
We reiterate: POTENTIAL SPOILERS!
Apparently, in the film there will be a scene in which the Blur ( Jason Schwartzman ), a villain already seen in the trailers , will pop into a certain shop: that of Mrs. Chen ( Peggy Lu ), a character seen in the Venom films . The image comes from the film’s Vietnamese Facebook page, which reads:
After the LEGO Universe, the live-action Venom universe will also appear in the Spider-Verse. And there will be more exciting things to reveal!
Does that mean we’ll see Eddie Brock too? For now obviously there are no official confirmations, but in a film set in the multiverse, moreover produced by the same studio as Venom , anything is possible.
The synopsis of Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse
While trying to balance his personal and superheroic life, Miles Morales ( Shameik Moore ) collides with a new enemy, the Blur ( Jason Schwartzman ), and discovers the existence of a wall climber army led by Miguel O’Hara / Spider-Man 2099 ( Oscar Isaac ). However, a difference of opinion brings them on a collision course, as you can read in 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.
The voice cast includes Shameik Moore, Hailee Steinfeld, Jake Johnson, Oscar Isaac, Brian Tyree Henry, Luna Lauren Vélez, Issa Rae, Daniel Kaluuya, Karan Soni and Jason Schwartzman .
Direction and screenplay
Directed by Joaquim Dos Santos, Kemp Powers and Justin K. Thompson . The screenplay is by Phil Lord, Christopher Miller and David Callaham .
The main antagonist will be the Blur , voiced by Jason Schwartzman . As in the comics, her body will be covered in polka dots that act as dimensional portals, and she will also be able to throw them.
