Oscar Isaac has revealed that his character, Spider-Man 2099 won’t make jokes in Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse.
Back in 2018, Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse debuted and quickly became one of, if not the most popular film in the franchise. While it wasn’t a massive moneymaker, it did go on to win the Oscar for Best Animated Picture. The post-credits scene, however, indicated that this would not be the last time we see these characters.
In the scene in question, Spider-Man 2099 appeared voiced by Oscar Isaac who began making his own jumps throughout the multiverse. The character will return for Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse, though it isn’t entirely clear what role he will play. However, in a recent interview with ScreenRant, Oscar Isaac hinted that his character will be the serious guy in a room full of clowns
“It’s been really fun working on that with Phil Lord and Kemp Powers. The thing I can say is, what makes this character so funny is that he’s the one Spider-Man that doesn’t have a sense of humor. Because all of them act like– they’re like wisecracks, right? Everybody wisecracks, except this guy just doesn’t. He’s a very serious Spider-Man.”
Here is the synopsis for the highly-anticipated Spider-Verse sequel:
Miles Morales returns for the next chapter of the Oscar®-winning Spider-Verse saga, an epic adventure that will transport Brooklyn’s full-time, friendly neighborhood Spider-Man across the Multiverse to join forces with Gwen Stacy and a new team of Spider-People to face off with a villain more powerful than anything they have ever encountered.
Directed by Joaquim Dos Santos, Kemp Powers, and Justin K. Thompson from a screenplay written by Phil Lord, Christopher Miller, and Dave Callaham, the film features the voices of Shameik Moore, Hailee Steinfeld, Jake Johnson, Oscar Isaac, and Issa Rae.
