Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse, the sequel to Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, is still shrouded in mystery, but fan art on TikTok has given fans a glimpse into a potential storyline involving Spider-Man 2099 and the Venom symbiote. The fan art imagines Spider-Man 2099 being infected by Venom, taking his terrifying character to a whole new level. This fan art suggests that the upcoming sequel could explore the concept of Venom variants, further connecting the films and utilizing the Symbiote concept.
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse marked the return of Miles Morales and the Spider-Verse franchise in 2023. While fans eagerly await the release of Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse, which has been temporarily taken off the release schedule, they are finding ways to keep themselves engaged, including creating new fan art. One TikTok artist, @JuniiPeri, imagined what it would look like if Spider-Man 2099 became possessed by the Venom symbiote, resulting in a truly menacing character.
While details about Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse are scarce, it is known that Spider-Man 2099, also known as Miguel O’Hara, played a significant role in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse and will have a major role again in the upcoming sequel. The fan art featuring Spider-Man 2099 and Venom suggests that the film could explore the idea of Venom variants, introducing different incarnations of the Symbiote. This concept has yet to be explored in the Spider-Verse films, despite the presence of various Spider-Man villains.
With the introduction of the concept of Symbiotes being aware of other universes in Venom: Let There Be Carnage, it would make sense for Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse to take this idea further. By incorporating at least one Venom variant, the film could emphasize the connection between the Spider-Verse films and Sony’s Spider-Man Universe. This connection will be particularly important as Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse is set to be released after Venom 3 in 2024.
Currently, there is uncertainty surrounding the release date of Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse, as the SAG-AFTRA and Writers Guild of America strikes continue. However, fans hope that the wait will be worth it as they eagerly anticipate the conclusion of Miles Morales’ Spider-Verse trilogy. In the meantime, fans can relive the excitement of Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse through various platforms, including digital release and home media.
In conclusion, fan art on TikTok has generated speculation about the upcoming sequel to Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse. The fan art imagines Spider-Man 2099 infected by the Venom symbiote, suggesting a potential exploration of Venom variants in the film. While details remain elusive, fans are excited to see what lies ahead in the conclusion of Miles Morales’ Spider-Verse trilogy.
