Across the Spider-Verse comes with an anime Easter egg, according to Marvel Leaker
He just likes me fr!
Usually, when the @CanWeGetToast Twitter account gets coverage, it’s because they tweeted important information about an upcoming pop culture or MCU movie. This time they tweeted a fun little Easter egg about the upcoming animated Spider-Man movie Across the Spider-Verse. Of course, take the following with a grain of salt, as leaks and early cuts don’t always reflect the final product, especially with small details like this one.
According to @CanWeGetToast, there’s a scene in Across the Spider-Verse that confirms that Miles Morales, who we met in the first film, is a huge anime fan. During a scene where Miles is in his room with fellow spider Gwen Stacy, a “mint condition” Deku figure (from My Hero Academia) can be seen in the shot. Apparently the character in the test film version of the scene was originally Piccolo (from the Dragon Ball franchise).
Little does Gwen know that the Deku figure is an extremely valuable collectible that she confuses with any other toy. She proceeds to take the figure out of its packaging, which will likely annoy Miles greatly. @CanWeGetToast doesn’t mention Miles’ reaction in this scene, but when this is in the final cut it’s sure to be an emotional one for our hero and anime figure collectors around the world.
Keep in mind that the trailers give no indication that this part of the scene will appear in the final cut of the film. However, the trailers clearly show a scene where Gwen appears through a portal into Miles’ room.
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is set to hit theaters exclusively later this year, on June 2nd. It’s currently not certain where the film will stream once it hits theaters this summer.
