Spider-Man: No Way Home has been all the rage recently. The upcoming film starring Tom Holland is set to be the last MCU project of the year and one of the biggest Spidey flicks yet. However, there’s another upcoming movie focused on the wall-crawler that people seem to be forgetting about: Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse.
The first film, Into the Spider-Verse, sees Miles Morales take up the mantle of Spider-Man after the death of Peter Parker. It's a movie that is commonly placed on lists crowning it as one of the best superhero films to exist; people love it.
Sony doesn't want audiences to be so consumed by the No Way Home hype that they forget about Miles' next adventure, given that the studio just released the first teaser for the project.
As exciting as the trailer is, could there be another reason that Sony is shining a spotlight on Miles? Could audiences see the character pop up in No Way Home?
Will Miles Morales Appear in Spider-Man: No Way Home?
During an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse producers Phillip Lord and Christopher Miller were asked if Miles Morales might show up in No Way Home.
According to the duo, "[they've] seen No Way Home," and they'd be surprised if Morales appeared. But they then offered the tantalizing tease that "everyone is part of the Spider-Verse":
“We’ve seen No Way Home, so we would be VERY surprised if Miles showed up. But everyone is part of the Spider-Verse.”
There's Always a Spider-Verse
It looks like anyone wishing to see Miles Morales show up in Spider-Man: No Way Home should probably abandon that hope. It would have been phenomenal to see an animated Miles arrive to help Tom Holland.
What the producer's words do tease is the possibility of Tom Holland's Spidey showing up down the line in a Spider-Verse film. With the nature of the movie, that possibility has always been there—it would be strange for it not to happen at some point down the line.
Even more than that, the rumored involvement of Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire in No Way Home opens the door for a cameo down the line in one of Miles' animated adventures. It almost happened in the first film, but didn't end up going through.
Hopefully, fans won't have to wait too long to see the previous Spider-Men in action, provided all the whispers pan out.
Spider-Man: No Way Home hits theaters worldwide on December 17. Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (Part One) will arrive in theaters on October 7, 2022.
