If the news on Spider-Man: No Way Home with Tom Holland are still scarce, surely no better can be said about the sequel to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (Spider-Man – A New Universe in Italy). Recently, however, news has leaked that will make all those fans happy let’s say no longer teenagers.
That Hashtag Show has indeed revealed that Christopher Daniel Barnes would be in final negotiations to return to lend his voice for his version of the wall climber Spider-Man: The Animated Series.
The ’90s version of Spider-Man is expected to appear in the movie with one style that will be a hybrid of its classic “clean” and adapted look to the distinctive visual tone of Into the Spider-Verse. He won’t be a central figure in the sequel though, as he appears to appear for about 5-10 minutes, appearing briefly throughout the film and then again in the final stages.
Christopher Daniel Barnes was the voice of Peter Parker / Spider-Man for the duration of the classic animated series, which ran from 1994 to 1998 for 65 episodes. He has always interpreted his voice in numerous other shows and video games. In addition to Peter Parker, he voiced Spider-Man Noir, Spider-Man 2099, Spyder-Knight, but also some villains such as Electro and Vulture.
This version of Spider-Man it is not to be confused with that of the animated series of the 60s which is often used for internet memes, particularly the one with the two Spider-Man (sometimes even three) pointing to each other. A meme that among other things was honored in the previous one Into the Spider-Verse in the post-credits scene where we saw Miguel O’Hara / Spider-Man 2099 traveling between dimensions and arriving right on Earth 67.
In short it seems that even in the next Into the Spider-Verse there will be many references and tributes to the various versions of Spider-Man. We hope to be able to bring you more news as soon as possible on this second collaborative project between Marvel, Sony and Columbia.
If you haven’t seen the original yet Spider-Man – A New Universe we advise you to remedy it by recovering it on Amazon in blu ray or DVD. If, on the other hand, you liked him for his visual style, you might like his wonderful artbook “The Art of the Movie”.
