Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is going to have the most Spider-People ever seen in a Spider-Man movie, outdoing its predecessor. It seems that more Spider-Animals outside of the iconic Spider-Ham are joining the sequel, including a possible Spider-Cat says rumours.
This is a cat with spider powers and not Night-Spider, an alternate universe version of Felicia Hardy, aka Black Cat. Considering the promise of hundreds of Spider-Characters, we wouldn’t be surprised if this little tidbit actually ends up being true.
Across the Spider-Verse with Spider-Cats
Marvel Insider and Twitter user CanWeGetSomeToast tweeted about the movie's Spider-People, before revealing the possibility of a Spider-Cat character. Out of all the Spider-People in Across the Spider-Verse, a cat with spider powers could end up stealing the show.
While Marvel and Sony have yet to confirm the news, there’s a chance that Spider-Cat could be an actual character. It would be very easy money for Marvel, as the character could end up as a plushie and star in numerous comic books.
Who else joins Spider-Cat?
Various characters have been confirmed/leaked for Across the Spider-Verse, like the returning Miles Morales, Spider-Man 2099, and The Spot. Ben Reilly, Peter Parker’s clone, has also been confirmed via leaked merchandise, using his iconic Scarlet Spider costume fans adore.
Expect to see even more characters as the movie’s release date draws near, whether they be confirmations or more leaks. 2023 is going to be a big year for Spider-Man fans, with this film’s release plus the upcoming video game Marvel’s Spider-Man 2.
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is scheduled for a June 2, 2023 release. In the meantime, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is readily available on digital stores and various streaming services.
