From what we already know, this sequel is taking place two years after the events of the last movie and will focus a little more on the blossoming romance between Miles Morales (Shameik Moore) and Gwen Stacy (Hailee Steinfeld).
Recently a fan tweeted to the filmmakers of the upcoming movie, maybe jokingly (but we all know its not entirely a joke) volunteering their services to design an old-school character, the 1970s Japanese Spider-Man. Producer Phil Lord responded with two glorious words.
You may not be familiar with this Spider-Man which is completely understandable. In the 1970s, the Toei Company (y’know, the guys responsible for Kamen Rider) acquired the licensing for the web-slinger and used it to create their own superhero.
While they do share numerous similarities, Peter Parker was replaced by a young motorcyclist named Takuya. Takuya meets an alien from Planet Spider and although he has all the powers of the traditional Spider-Man, he also pilots a giant mecha named Leopardon. We could not make this up even if we tried.
We can’t wait to see what other crazy spider-people get thrown into the mix this time. Maybe Tom Holland will finally get the cameo that was so rudely taken away from him.
