The highly anticipated, epic follow-up to Sony's Into the Spider-Verse, Spider-Man Across the Spider-Verse is now in theaters. This film not only has a ton of Marvel easter eggs and cameos for the animated universe but also the live-action ones as well! Let's get into all these awesome Across the Spider-Verse easter eggs and cameos
This is your spoiler warning if you have not seen Spider-Man Across the Spider-Verse.
Across the Spider-Verse Easter Eggs & Cameos
Before the studio logos play, the ongoing cough gag happens. In the right hand corner of the screen in comic font, you will see the word COUGH. Back when Lord & Miller made 22 Jump Street, Miller coughed and they left it into the sound mix for the film. Since then it has been a running gag.
At the start of the film, we visit Gwen's world, Earth-65. A familiar animated face and voice is once again yelling about a Spider-person being a menace, that's right J. Jonah Jameson voiced by J. K. Simmons makes an appearance.
The Steampunk Vulture that Gwen fights is from a 2014 comic crossover event that included, you guessed it, a lot of different versions of Spider-Man. This event took place on Earth-2099 which Miguel figures out this is where this Vulture belongs.
When Miguel is shown fighting Vulture, his fangs can be seen. Miguel's fangs secrete a paralyzing, though non-toxic, venom. He also has retractable talons at the tips of his fingers and toes.
Back inside Miles' universe (Earth-1610) J. Jonah Jameson is shown once again. J. K. Simmons is the same in every universe.
Miles' roommate, Ganke Lee (Peter Sohn), who was shown in Into the Spider-Verse but not given anything to do really, has now assumed his role as the Guy in the Chair. The person who helps Miles out when he is out doing Spider-Man things. Ganke is playing Marvel's Spider-Man game from Insomniac.
One of the many universes visited in this movie is Earth-131222, the LEGO universe. Lord and Miller who wrote these Spider-Man films, also wrote and directed The LEGO Movie. When it cuts back to the LEGO universe, it shows Peter works as a photographer at the Daily Bugle.
Mrs. Chen from Venom is still working in her shop and yes she sees weird stuff all the time Spot.
When Gwen shows up in Miles' room, one of the comic books floating in the air is True Life Tales of Spider-Man a comic that originated in the first film.
Also in Miles' room on the shelf is the wooden moose from The Mitchells Vs. The Machines.
Miles and Gwen travel to Mumbattan, Earth-50101, the home of Pavitr Prabhakar (Karan Soni, a Deadpool alum).
Miguel O'Hara is from Earth-928 and that is where the Spider-Man headquarters is located.
There are a lot of Spider-People all over the place. One is Scarlet Spider (Andy Samberg). In the comics, Scarlet Spider is a genetic clone of Peter Parker.
Margo Kess aka Spider-Byte.
Miguel walks him through the various villains they have caught. One is the Prowler but it's not Miles' Uncle. It's actually Donald Glover who played Aaron Davis in the live action Spider-Man Homecoming film.
Also in this scene, the Spider-Man from the PS4 game is checking out a villain. He is voiced by Yuri Lowenthal, he is named Insomniac Spider-Man.
There is a Hijab Spider-Woman named Malala Windsor after Malala Yousafzai.
Josh Keaton also reprises his role as Spider-Man from The Spectacular Spider-Man animated series.
The genus behind the soundtrack, Metro Boomin is also seen, he is the Spider-Man wearing black and white.
Deep breath. Here are some other Spideys I saw. Spider- Cat, Takuya Yamashiro aka Spider-Man from the 1978 Japanese television series, Marvel Mangaverse Spider-Man, Otto Octavius aka Superior Spider-Man, Earth X Spider-Man, Cyborg Spider-Woman, Iron Spider, LEGO Spider-Man, Spider-Therapist, Spider-Cop, Spider-Mechanic, Spider-ParkedCar, Spider-Monkey, Spider-Wolf, and of course Spider-rex.
Taran Killam voices both Web-Slinger and his horse Widow. Killam recently made his Marvel comics debut writing for Web-Slinger in SPIDER-VERSE #4.
Miguel rants about Tom Holland's Peter Parker and Doctor Strange from Earth-199999. This is funny not only for the MCU nod but also because fans have debated which is the true designation for the MCU, Earth 616 or Earth 199999.
Miguel is upset that Miles saved the police chief in Pavitr Prabhakar's world, because that was supposed to happen. He begins to explain what happens when someone messes with the timelines similarly to how it is all explained in Loki. Essentially, Miguel warns Miles about the dangers of breaking canon.
There is a shot of the 1967 Spider-Man from the TV show.
Each Spider-Man is connected by certain events that have to happen–nodes. These nodes are usually the death of someone close to the hero.
As the events are played out for Miles, Andrew Garfield is shown with his Gwen, Tobey Maguire can be seen with Uncle Ben, and Doc Ock played by Alfred Molina is saying Hello Peter.
When Miles is running away the infamous Spider-Man pointing meme happens.
Peni Parker in her new SP//dr armor is among the group surrounding Miles.
The Spider-Man sitting in the therapy office is talking about seeing his Uncle Ben dead.
Peter B Parker takes Mayday home to put her to bed. She is wearing Spider-Ham pajamas.
When Miles escapes back to Earth, he lands in Earth-42, the world the spider that bit him came from. In this universe, Miles has become the Prowler, the mantle used by Uncle Aaron in his world.
On the news is J Jonah Jameson talking about the Sinister Six. This is a group of supervillains who in the comics band together to try and take out Spider-Man. The original group consisted of Doc Ock, Vulture, Electro, Kraven, Mysterio, and Sandman.
To rescue Miles, Gwen recruits some old friends- Peter B Parker and Mayday, Spider-Man Noir, Spider-Ham, and Peni Parker along with new ones: Spider-Byte and Hobie aka Spider-Punk.
