Phil Lord and Christopher Miller say that Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse will feature more of Spider-Punk’s world.
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse was filled to the brim with a variety of eclectic visual styles, so it says a lot that Spider-Punk was able to instantly catch the audience’s attention.
Spider-Punk (Daniel Kaluuya), aka Hobie Brown, is part of the Spider-Society in Across the Spider-Verse, although he mostly plays by his own rules. He forms a bond with Gwen Stacy (Hailee Steinfeld) and by the end of the film, the stage is set for Hobie to play a bigger role in the upcoming sequel. While speaking with Deadline, Spider-Verse writer-producers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller reveal that we’ll be spending more time in Spider-Punk’s universe in Beyond the Spider-Verse.
Visiting Spider-Punk’s world is one of many crazy mixed media adventures that we’re going to have in [Beyond the Spider-Verse]. It’ll be a whole new feast for the eyes.
We met hundreds of different Spider-People in the recent sequel, as well as spent time in several different dimensions. We now know that Spider-Punk’s universe will be explored further, and I can’t wait to see what new worlds Beyond the Spider-Verse will bring us.
“When Miles Morales is unexpectedly approached by his best friend and love interest Gwen Stacy to complete a mission to save every universe of Spider-People from a mysterious new villain who could cause a catastrophic disaster, Miles is up for the challenge,” reads the official synopsis for Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse. “He and Gwen journey through the Multiverse together and meet its protectors, a group of Spider-People known as the Spider-Force.
