Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Post credits scene Explained
Spider-Man latest appearance on the big screen, he is again a school kid who doesn’t fit in. However, this time he is a black, Spanish-speaking teenager, isn’t the only Spider-man in the city and also, he is animated. Marvel and Sony have teamed up again for , and trust me when I say it’s like entering a completely different universe.
The new animated film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse mixes things up by introducing a whole bunch of Spider-people, one of the elements that makes it easily the best Spidey movie ever.
The surprise character in the end credits scene is none other than Spider-Man 2099, the Spider-Man of the future. The man under the mask is Miguel O’Hara, voiced by Oscar Isaac, who you may know better as Poe Dameron from Star Wars. The Latino Isaac is a fitting casting choice given that Miguel is Marvel’s first-ever Latino spider-character.
We meet another pair of Spider-Men, one from the distant future and another from more than 50 years ago, before they end up in an intense (and meme-worthy) bout of literal pointing.
In the mid-credits scene, we see Miguel talking to a hologram. This is surely his AI assistant from the comics named Lyla. She’s essentially Miguel’s partner and helps him fight crime by feeding him a constant stream of intel on whoever’s plans he’s trying to thwart.
Miguel is a gifted geneticist living in New York (renamed Nueva York) in 2099, an era when a dystopian US is run by evil megacorporations like Alchemax, a company that plays a big role in the Spider-Verse.
While trying to replicate the abilities of original Spidey Peter Parker for Alchemax, Miguel is forced by his unethical boss, Tyler Stone, to take an addictive drug. In an effort to shake the addiction, Miguel accidentally splices his DNA with that of a spider and gains a similar set of abilities as the original Spider-Man.
Additionally, his Spider-Man costume is made from Unstable Molecules, an indestructible fabric originally created by Reed Richards of the Fantastic Four. And he wears a high-tech web cape that allows him to glide.
