New merchandise from the upcoming Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse confirms another Spider hero who will be joining the roster for Sony’s animated Marvel sequel.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse saw Shameik Moore’s Miles Morales navigating his newfound spider powers as he teamed up with Spider-Men, -Women and -Hams from various universes, including Jake Johnson’s Peter B. Parker, Hailee Steinfeld’s Spider-Gwen and Nicolas Cage’s Spider-Man Noir.
It looks like the sequel is getting ready to introduce even more Spider-People and one new hero has just been revealed.
Images have recently surfaced online showing Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse tie-in toys, including versions of the electric guitar and horned mask belonging to Hobie Brown – Spider-Punk.
In the comics, the anarchic Spider-Punk comes from Earth-138, where he uses his spider powers and his ax to fight the power. It looks like Across the Spider-Verse will see Hobie Brown rocking out with Miles Morales, as his mask and guitar have been spotted hitting shop shelves already.
Twitter user @MCUMarvels shared images of a “Spider-Punk Web Blast” guitar and Spider-Punk mask going on sale. Check out the new Spider-Verse merchandise below:
