First Look At SPIDER-MAN: ACROSS THE SPIDER-VERSE Main Villain, The Spot, Revealed

For Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, directors Joaquim Dos Santos, Kemp Powers, and Justin K. Thompson went deep into Spider-Man's rogue gallery to pull out the film's main villain, The Spot.

During the Annecy Festival, Sony Pictures introduced audiences to a new foe coming in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse. Admittedly, he's a bit of an unknown if you aren't well-versed in the comics, but he also sounds like an amazing new villain. He's known as The Spot, and he's "one of the deeper cuts in Spider-Man's rogue gallery," according to co-director Kemp Powers.

Sony Pictures Animation shared a first look at The Spot, along with a brief explanation of his powers. The Spot's entire body is covered with interdimensional portals that can send him anywhere he wants to go. Or he can make the portals appear out of thin air to transport objects and people at will. As we see in the shared image. The Spot uses one of his portals to direct a kick from Miles into hitting Spider-Gwen.

From an artist's standpoint, The Spot's design is meant to evoke an unfinished sketch with blue construction lines representing a comic book artist's rough drawing before the work is sent to be inked. What's especially intriguing is how the character's design will evolve over the course of the film, changing and growing as he begins to master his own powers.

“We thought it would be really cool if the portals felt like living ink that had spilled or splattered on the comic artist’s drawing,” explained Powers. “His very simple power provided endless exciting challenges and permutations for our team.”

The Spot is voiced by Jason Schwartzman (The French Dispatch, Rushmore). He's not the only newcomer joining the cast of Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse. Spider-Man 2099 (Oscar Isaac) and Jessica Drew (Issa Rae) will also be sucked into the fray, assisting Miles Morales (Shameik Moore) and Gwen Stacy (Hailee Steinfeld) in what is sure to be an exciting battle.

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is slated to swing into theaters on June 2, 2023.
