New action figures for the upcoming sequel Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse has made its way online, potentially showing off some new upgrades for Miles Morales.
The new figure comes courtesy of Hasbro and the images were shared online via Twitter. The figure appears to have Morales in a newer suit than when we last saw him at the end of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. While the traditional black and red color scheme continues, the lines on Miles’ shoulder are a bit more defined, with large red lines also running all the way down the sides of his arms and legs.

In addition to the new outfit, the figure also comes with a web-shooter of sorts that appears to fire a variety of webs. Of course, it is unclear if this will appear in the film, as it may just be a new accessory for the toy. However, the suit appears to coincide with the brief glimpse of Miles that fans got in the trailer, with red lines appearing all the way up the arms and legs of the suit and no large red pads on the shoulders.
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse will see Issa Rae’s Jessica Drew/Spider-Woman join Shameik Moore and Hailee Steinfeld in the animated comic sequel. The two reprise their roles as Miles Morales/Spider-Man and Gwen Stacy/Spider-Gwen, respectively. Plot details are being kept under wraps, but will reportedly feature several spider-powered characters “across Marvel Comics’ time and space.”
It was announced in April that Joaquim Dos Santos, Kemp Powers and Justin K. Thompson will serve as the film’s directing trio. Lord, Miller, Amy Pascal, Avi Arad and Christina Steinberg all return to executive produce the Sony Pictures project, with Alonzo Ruvalcaba co-producing. The original Spider-Verse director Peter Ramsey will produce alongside Aditya Sood.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse introduced a teenage Miles Morales who becomes Spider-Man in his universe and must join forces with five spider-powered individuals from other dimensions to stop a threat to all realities. The film won the 2019 Academy Award for Best Animated Feature and grossed $375.5 million at the global box office.
