Spider-Man Across The Spider-Verse is finally out and everyone is shocked after watching the movie. The reason is it’s “ultra-dark” storyline with an unexpected ending. So if you’ve not seen the movie yet, then leave the article as lot of spoilers are ahead !!
Before jumping straight into the ending, here is a quick recap of the whole movie as well. In the movie, Miles reunites with Gwen after she visits him. It turns out that she could now visit him because she was now part of the Spider Society, a group of Spider-People led by Spider-Man 2099 to safeguard the Multiverse.
The aim is to make sure that anomalies are cleared when they appear and “canon events” take place when they’re supposed to. Now in the movie, Canon Events are what makes the Spider-People who they are and connected via the web of life and destiny. These events include the deaths of Uncle Bens and the deaths of police captains close to that particular Spider-Person.
It turns out that Miles Morales (Earth-1610) himself is an anomaly. He was never supposed to have powers because the radioactive spider that bite him came from another dimension (Earth-42). The Spot was the one that brought the spider from Earth-42 to Earth-1610.
It is also revealed that The Spot plans to exact revenge on Miles by killing his father after he becomes a captain. But according to the rules of the Spider Society, Miles can’t stop this from happening because it’s a canon event. Miles refuses to accept this, which brings him into conflict with Spider-Man 2099 and the Spider Society which then begins a whole new fight among the Spider-Society & Miles.
He goes on the run and uses a machine to bring him home but the machine brings him back to Earth-42 instead of Earth-1610. On Earth-1610, Miles’ father is already dead but his uncle Aaron is still alive. He eventually gets knocked out and finds himself face-to-face with the Prowler of Earth-42, which turns out to be another variant of Miles Morales.
Meanwhile, by the end of the movie, Gwen is able to traverse the Multiverse again with the help of Spider Punk. She recruits several Spider-People, which mainly includs Spider-Ham, Spider-Man Noir, Peni Parker, Pavitr Prabhakar, and others to help rescue Miles.
Whereas Spider-Man 2099 is still searching for Miles along with Jessica Drew and Scarlet Spider so that they can stop him. Also at the same time, it is revealed that Spot has finally gathered even more powers and is ready to cause even more incursions in the multiverse. And that’s where the movie ends !!
Unfortunately, this time, there are no post credits at the end. The whole movie ends at an interesting cliffhanger which itself sets up a whole new plot for the third movie. If you don’t know then the third part of this franchise will drop sometimes in March of 2024, which is less then a year away.
The title of the next part is “Spider-Man: Beyond The Spider-Verse” which itself says a lot about it’s plot. The Spot will return after becoming even more stronger whereas we’re definitely going to watch a clash between Spider-Man 2099 & our Miles.
