‘Wow, that CCXP panel was definitely something huh? Kicking off with an incredible confirmation of our report of the Into the Spider-Verse sequel title, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse dropped its first official look at the upcoming sequel and it may have just confirmed the appearance of one particular Spider-member to join the new team: Spider-Man India.
If you observe the new trailer closely, you can see Miles Morales flying high above the streets of what appears to be a city where the predominant language is Hindi. This nod to the Hindi language seems indicative that Across the Spider-Verse Part One will delve into the universe of Pavitr Prabhakar. Take a look at this screenshot from the trailer:
Apart from that screenshot, we also have this screengrab of Miles and 2099 duking it out. Pay close attention to the time-traveling device on his wrist.
If you look closely, you can see the numbers 50101. That is a direct reference to Earth 50101, which is where Pavitr Prabhakar’s universe is set in. It also appears that they are headed to Earth 928, a universe where 2099 is plunged into a war…but that’s another story for another time.
Pavitr Prabhakar aka Spider-Man, is a variation of Spider-Man that’s set in Mumbai, India. He also played a predominant role in the Spider-Verse comic storyline as well as being a member of the Web Warriors and the sequel storyline, Spider-Geddon. So it should come as no surprise that the ITSV sequel would like to incorporate this character into their story.
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (Part One) premieres in theaters on October 7, 2022.
