Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse Image Sees Spider-Man 2099 Charging into Multiversal Battle

Oscar Isaac’s Spider-Man 2099 will play a much larger role in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse.

The latest image from the upcoming animated sequel, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, offers a closer look at Oscar Isaac’s Miguel O’Hara aka Spider-Man 2099. And he is looking pretty menacing, and he races into action as leader of the Spider-Force. Released via social media, the image should have audiences excited to see Spider-Man 2099 play a much larger role in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, which finds Miles Morales thrown headfirst into the madness of the multiverse.

The menacing look of Isaac’s Spider-Man 2099, a variant from an alternate future who was introduced at the end of 2018’s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, does not bode well for Miles, with Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse writer and producer Christopher Miller stating that he will play an antagonist role in the sequel. “He’s not the villain of the movie, but he’s sort of an antagonist to Miles because they both think that what they’re doing is the right thing,” Miller revealed.


Created by Peter David and Rick Leonardi in 1992 for Marvel Comics, Miguel O’Hara grew up in a futuristic New York City many years after the modern-day era of Marvel heroes, now known as the “Heroic Age.” The head of a state-of-the-art genetics program, O’Hara hopes to one day create another Spider-Man-esque hero and ends up changing his own genetic code to 50% spider DNA, and giving himself spider-like abilities.

Oscar Isaac will reprise the role of Miguel O’Hara aka Spider-Man 2099 in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse and has described the character as “the one Spider-Man that doesn’t have a sense of humor.” Another element that does not bode well for Miles Morales. The leader of the Spider-Force, Spidey 2099 and Miles find themselves at odds with each other.
