Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse continues its predecessor’s tradition of delivering absolutely breathtaking visuals, and talented artists from around the web have responded with stunning art inspired by the movie. While Peter Parker enjoys a string of successful movies in the MCU, Sony Pictures Animation has struck gold with its Spider-Verse franchise. Taking advantage of the animation medium, both Into the Spider-Verse and Across the Spider-Verse present stunningly vibrant frames of artistic vision. The latter goes further, giving different realities markedly different visual styles to set them apart.

Miles, Gwen, Miguel, and the other Spider-People in Across the Spider-Versehave seen an incredible boom in popularity after their memorable appearance in Sony’s latest projects, and the talented artists of the internet have taken notice. From incredible recreations of movie scenes to fascinating “what if” scenarios for the franchise, these artistic works stand as worthy companions to the movie itself. While notable works are too many to count, these ten pieces of Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse fan art are particularly worth checking out.

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse – 80 Easter Eggs & Marvel References

Across the Spider-Verse features several Easter eggs along with a literal army of different versions of Spider-Man from the original comics and more.

10 Gwen Stacy Embraces The Venom Symbiote

After playing a pivotal role in Into the Spider-Verse, Gwen Stacy’s Spider-Verse story is expanded upon even further in its sequel. Venom hasn’t yet appeared in the animated series (though the live-action Venom movie universe does appear), but artist Arkin Tyagi imagines what might happen if Gwen crosses paths with the symbiote. Gwen has worn a symbiote suit in Marvel Comics with a much more monstrous design, but this piece keeps the sleek design philosophy behind the original Spider-Verse Spider-Woman movie costume.

9 A Day In The Life Of Miles & Gwen

Art By Stephen Gianna

Across the Spider-Verse succeeds in part because it knows how to mix bombastic action set-pieces with endearing character moments. The friendly and potentially romantic relationship between Miles and Gwen has been wonderfully established across two movies, and artist Stephen Gianna represents his take on it with a gorgeous watercolor collage. While the piece recreates the Miles vs Spider-Society train moment, it contrasts the action with two tender moments of Miles and Gwen enjoying each others’ company.

8 Gwen Learns About Canon Events

Across the Spider-Verse introduces the idea of canon events, moments that every Spider-Man has to experience. These vary between moments of happiness and grief, and the film’s plot centers on Miles rejecting the very idea that his father is destined to die. However, artoftimetravel imagines an off-screen moment in the movie in which Gwen learns about non-negotiable happenings. Gwen mentions to Miles in the movie that Gwens and Spider-Mans getting involved always ends badly for Gwen, and artoftimetravel’s piece shows her learning that for herself.

7 The Spot Becomes A Truly Terrifying Threat

While Miguel O’Hara, aka Spider-Man 2099, has more screen time as an antagonist in Across the Spider-Verse, it’s The Spot’s transition from low-level joke to multiversal threat that’s perhaps more compelling. His ability to create portals is initially an awkward hindrance, but he eventually learns to threaten entire realities. Artist johnnyfiveee adapts the villain on a cosmic scale, filling him with stars and black holes, befitting his potential eventual power.

6 Gwen Swing Through NYC

Every Spider-Man movie features a scene of its hero swinging around on webs, and Across the Spider-Verse features a visually dazzling sequence of Miles and Gwen flying through the streets of New York City together. Artist Geizi Guevara created their depiction of Gwen in NYC before seeing the movie, but it effectively blends a unique character art style with the visual backdrop distortion the series is known for. Gwen’s suit gets a bit of a rework too, adding a sweatshirt on top that contrasts the traditionally form-fitting Spider-Man/Woman look.

5 The Duality Of Miles

Art By spdrmnkyxxiii

The Spider-Verse franchise sets itself apart from other Spider-Man movies by centering on Miles Morales instead of Peter Parker, presenting a unique set of narrative opportunities and twists. One of the biggest surprises comes at the end of Across the Spider-Verse as an Earth-42 version of Miles is revealed to be that world’s Prowler. What exactly that means is yet to be seen, but artist spdrmnkyxxiii’s fan art beautifully contrasts the two character designs.

4 The Dark Side Of Spider-Man 2099

Art By Uzuri Art

Miguel O’Hara is different from most Spider-People not only because of his name but also because his unique origin story grants him a different set of powers. The result of intentional genetic manipulation instead of a random spider bite, Miguel has a few vampire-like features, including fangs. Uzuri Art captures the dark side of Miguel with a beautiful realism-style portrait oozing with vampiric energy. Though Miguel is ultimately a hero, art like this makes it clear why he’s seen as so terrifying.

3 Spider-Punk Rocks Out

Spider-Punk is a recent addition to the Spider-Man mythos, only first appearing in Marvel Comics in 2015. However, while he’s had fans ever since, Hobie Brown is undoubtedly one of the breakout fan favorites of Across the Spider-Verse. An anarchist and a punk-rocker, Hobie stays true to his word, helping fight against the seemingly authoritarian Spider-Society. Art by hawkeye captures the musician in several poses as he jams with his signature guitar.

2 A Realistic Take On Spider-Man India

Art By encreate

Across the Spider-Verse introduced several memorable Spider-Man variants, and it’s easy to see why Pavitr Prabhakar gained such a big fan following after the movie’s release. Artist encreate dutifully recreates the hero’s freshly-designed movie suit, but the move from a more vibrant visual style to something more realistic gives the character a different feel. With Pavitr set to return in Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse, audiences presumably won’t have to wait too long for more Spider-Man India

1 Spider-Man 2099’s Suit Shows Off His Advanced Tech

Art by Arkin Tyagi

Spider-Man 2099’s suit is made with more advanced tech than most Spider-Man outfits, and that’s expressed in a few ways throughout Across the Spider-Verse. His webs appear to be made of energy, and his suit glitches when it suffers a Venom Blast from Miles. Artist Arkin Tyagi, aka _artkin_, gives a unique spin to this idea by covering Miguel’s suit in tiny microchip patterns. The subtle texture looks great, and with Miguel needing a new outfit, something similar could pop up after the events of Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse.
