from ‘Spider-Man: Crossing the Multiverse’

Miles Morales and Gwen Stacy have returned to the big screen in ‘Spider-Man: Crossing the Multiverse’, sequel to the acclaimed ‘Spider-Man: A New Universe’. In this new adventure, Thousands and company embark on a multiversal journey that gives us cameos of characters from different ‘Spider-Man’ movies. In case you have missed any, we have compiled the most important ones below.

Donald Glover as the Prowler

When Miles is in full tour of the Spider Society facilities, they show him different villains that they have captured to send them back to their respective universe. One of them is the live-action version of Aaron Davis/The Prowler, Miles’ uncle, played by Donald Glover (‘Community’). Although we quickly associate this character with ‘Spider-Man: A New Universe’, appeared for a few minutes played by Glover in ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’, Tom Holland’s first wall-crawling film. In a scene from that installment, Spidey stops an arms dealer (Glover) in a garage. He does not present himself as such, much less do we see him in the villain suit, but the artificial intelligence in Spider-Man’s suit identifies him as Aaron Davis.

The actor’s connection with the spider universe goes beyond this role, because when Sony was looking for the actor who would star in ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’, Glover publicly expressed interest in playing him. In fact, in an episode of the mythical ‘Community’ he appears dressed as the character, which did not help him to keep the role, but It was one of the aspects that inspired author Brian Michael Bendis to create Miles Morales, the first black Spider-Man, in 2011. In 2014, Glover voiced Miles in the ‘Ultimate Spider-Man’ series.

Venom Universe

The villain La Mancha has just discovered the true potential of his powers, which allow him to travel the multiverse. In one of his many excursions, lands in the ‘Venom’ universe, specifically in a very recognizable setting from that movie, Mrs. Chen’s store. Although Eddie does not appear in ‘Crossing the Multiverse’, let’s remember that this same store, frequented by Tom Hardy’s character, is the place where his film leaves us with the famous “we are Venom”:

Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man

While Miguel O’Hara/Spider-Man 2099 (Oscar Isaac) explains the concept of canonical events, events that must happen in the reality of each Spider-Person for the universe to take its course, images of the different tragedies of the Spider-Man lives. One of them is the death of Captain George Stacy, represented through the scene of ‘The Amazing Spider-Man where Andrew Garfield’s Peter Parker mourns his death.

Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man

At the same moment where Miguel deals with canonical events, including tragedies that all Peter Parkers must face, we find the death of Uncle Ben. How could it be otherwise, shows as an example the iconic scene from the first ‘Spider-Man’ by Sam Raimi where Tobey Maguire’s character contemplates the death of his uncle.

'Spider-Man: No Way Home'

Reference to Doctor Strange and Spider-Man

We don’t get to see them, but Miguel O’Hara names Holland’s Spider-Man and Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) in the film. In a moment of anger where he recounts the different multiverse crises he has dealt with, he mentions “the disaster” which involved events led by “Doctor Strange and the Little Earth Geek-199999”number received by the Marvel Cinematic Universe, that is, the events of ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’.

‘Spider-Man: Crossing the Multiverse’ is available in theaters.
