Swing into the Spider-Verse with the best Across the Spider-merch
Spider-Man: About the Spider-Verse has arrived, so to celebrate we’ve rounded up some of our favorite toys, clothes, games and comics featuring Miles Morales, Gwen Stacy, Peter Parker, the…other Peter Parker and a host of other cross-dimensional webslingers.
Spider-Man comics, books and movies
Spider-Man in the Spider-Verse is an excellent place to get acquainted with the wider world of webslingers (as well as the series’ incredible animation and art style). It is a must-watch before going to see the new movie.
Even Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse just came out, you can pre-order the 4K UHD/Blu-Ray version at Best Buy. walmart even offers an exclusive Steelbook version of the film. Both versions include a 1080p Blu-ray disc, plus a digital copy. A release date hasn’t been announced yet, but it will likely happen after it’s available to stream digitally.
There’s also plenty of literature to catch up with the characters from About the Spider-Verse without spending much. For starters, we recommend the Edge of Spider-Verse And Spider-Gwen Vol. 1 paperbacks. But if you want something that looks a little nicer on your shelf, you might want to check out the Spider Man 2099 Omnibus Vol. 1or Across the Spider-Verse: The Art of the Movie.
Spider-Man toys and collectibles
Just in time for the new movie, Hasbro has hatched a collection of detailed six-inch action figures of Gwen Stacey, Spider-Punk, Miles Morales, and Spider-Man 2099, each complete with matching accessories.
Hot Toys has created an excellent, 11.4-inch posable figurine of Brooklyn’s only Spider-Man, Miles Morales. In addition to the iconic costume, Hot Toys’ take on Spider-Man includes streetwear, interchangeable hands and different expressions for Miles’ mask.
If figurines aren’t your thing, Shop Disney has one bundle of enamel pins stylized after the protagonists of About the Spider-Verse. They would look great on a jacket or bag.
Spider-Man video games
We’ve been blessed with several excellent games featuring Spider-Man over the years, including MiracleMidnight sun, Marvel’s Spider ManAnd Spider Man: Miles Morales. While Marvel’s Spider Man And Miles Morales were initially exclusive to PlayStation consoles, but have since been ported to PC and are available to pick up on Steam. It’s also worth noting that picking up the Ultimate Edition of Spider Man: Miles Morales for PS5 includes the remastered version of Marvel’s Spider Man, which originally launched on the PlayStation 4.
To make things a little more confusing, people who bought Marvel’s Spider Man on PS4 (digital or disc) can pay $10 to get the upgraded PS5 remaster. Otherwise it’s $49.99. On PC, it costs $59.99.
Even Marvel’s Midnight Sun While Spider-Man doesn’t feature as a main protagonist, he still figures prominently in the game’s story alongside other Marvel staples.
In addition to cracking open a slew of clever new characters, tapping into the Spider-Verse has given us several fashion choices that deviate from Spidey’s typical red-on-blue ensemble.
Heroes & Villains currently has a range of tasteful T-shirts and loungewear modeled after the uniforms of Gwen Stacey, Miles MoralesAnd Peter Porker. Shop Disney also offers a variety of clothing for children and adults, ranging from caps and ties to pullovers. I suspect a lot of this stuff will be popular for Halloween.
