An official comic tie-in for Sony’s upcoming Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse teases the arrival of another web-slinging hero, Spider-Punk.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse has already proven that it will be living up to its name. Iconic characters like Spider-Gwen (Hailee Steinfeld), Spider-Man Noir (Nicolas Cage), and Spider-Ham (John Mulaney), and Peter Parker (Jake Johnson) will appear alongside Miles Morales (Shameik Moore) in the upcoming animated adventure. Now, it turns out that another hero will join the Spider-Verse and he has quite the unique design.
According to promotional material, Spider-Punk (pictured above) will appear in an upcoming comic tie-in to the Sony film. Though no voice actor has been cast, nor has any footage of Spider-Punk been shown, the inclusion of him in the upcoming comic is a pretty good indicator that he could appear. Check out the promo below:
“Spider-Man: Enter the Spider-Verse #1. With his ability to traverse the Multiverse, SPIDER-MAN assembles a team to track down a loose end from his past: the fate of the mighty GOG! Get ready for the upcoming film with this standalone adventure featuring some of your favorite Spider-Heroes: PETER PARKER! MILES MORALES! SPIDER-HAM! SPIDER-GWEN! SPIDER-PUNK! Also featuring a special presentation of SPIDER-MAN (2016) #1 — Miles Morales’ first adventure in the Prime Marvel Universe!”
Spider-Punk was created by Dan Slott and Olivier Coipel and comes from an anarchic universe. As you can see from the image above, his design would make an awesome addition to the eclectic group of costumed heroes appearing in the film.

20 Marvel Movies That Could Be Made After Disney’s Fox Acquisition
So the impossible has happened: Fox and Disney have recently agreed to a major deal, one which means that — aside from a few limitations with the Hulk and Spider-Man, who have their rights wrapped up with Universal Pictures and Sony Pictures — every major Marvel property will soon be able to appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While the plans for the remainder of Phase 3 likely won’t change that much, barring possible post-credits scenes showing major cameos being added on short notice, this development certainly gives Marvel an embarrassment of riches to work with for future film adaptations.
Since Marvel Studios had previously claimed that they have an outline for the next 20 movies they’ll make without the X-Men, the Fantastic Four, or any of their associated characters, I thought it would be best to similarly go all-out and suggest 20 more for the heck of it.
Here are, in no particular order, 20 movies that Marvel should think about making with a complete MCU at their fingertips. Click Next to get started!
