Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse Producers Explains Why the Sequel Doesn’t Have Post-Credits Scenes
Warning: This article contains spoilers for Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse.
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse has certainly made fans buzzing about the next chapter in the animated franchise.
It will nearly be a year before Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse makes its way to theatres. However, the sequel’s ending has caused fans to be impatient as they want to know what happens with the characters in the film.
The film ends on a cliffhanger. However, audiences were quite surprised to find out that the film doesn’t feature any post-credits scene, even though Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse had one.
In a chat with IndieWire, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse producer, Phil Lord confirmed that the film had a post-credits scene involving the antagonist, The Spot. However, Lord pointed out that the scene was hard to beat the cliffhanger end of Across the Spider-Verse, before the credits rolled.
So, what was the scene about? For starters, Across the Spider-Verse initially had a separate sequence during the film’s run, where Spot enters a Spidey villain bar, but no one serves him a drink because no one notices him. “Then he finally steals the drink for himself and he pours it down and it all leaks out of his holes,” Lord said. “He’s the dorkiest villain. A great line that Chris wrote, though: ‘Trying to fill a hole in his heart with more holes.’ Not a great method.”
However, after becoming stronger with his newfound inter-dimensional powers, the post-credits scene would see him return to the bar, and this time he takes care of business by beating all of the villains in the bar. This showcases the threat he brings to Miles and other Spidey-People in Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse.
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is now running in theatres. Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse releases on March 29, 2024.
